In this lecture we will explore the fundamental features driving this complex disease, including microbiome abnormalities, inflammation, skin barrier dysfunction, and itch. 

Emphasizing the predominant type 2 immune response, the lecture will explore the critical roles of cytokines IL-4 and IL-13 and co-stimulatory molecules such as OX40-OX40L. 

Additionally, the lecture will cover the adaptive immune pathways and the role of alarmins like IL-33 and TSLP in initiating and enhancing type 2 responses.
