Induction of nitric oxide synthase in asthma
Nitric oxide (NO) is a mediator of vasodilatation and bronchodilatation synthesised from L-arginine by the enzyme NO synthase, which is either constitutive or induced by lipopolysaccharides and/orExpand
Investigation and management of chronic cough using a probability-based algorithm
Chronic cough is a common and distressing symptom. A novel algorithm has been developed for the management of chronic cough, in which an assessment of clinical probability of disease determines theExpand
T-cell cytokine profile evaluated at the single cell level in BAL and blood in allergic asthma.
Atopic asthma is characterized by bronchial mucosal inflammation, involving eosinophils, mast cells, and lymphocytes. It has been suggested that the development and maintenance of this allergicExpand
Exhaled breath condensate pH and exhaled nitric oxide in allergic asthma and in cystic fibrosis
Background: It has been proposed that the pH of airway lining fluid may regulate the fractional exhaled concentration of nitric oxide (FeNO) in respiratory disease. Methods: FeNO, exhaled breathExpand
Sex-related differences in cough reflex sensitivity in patients with chronic cough.
Among patients attending specialist cough clinics there is an excess of females, but the reason for this sex difference is unknown. We tested the hypothesis that the sensitivity of the cough reflexExpand

Nitric oxide (NO) is present in the exhaled breath of humans and other mammalian species. It is generated in the lower airways by enzymes of the nitric oxide synthase (NOS) family, althoughExpand
Dendritic cells in normal and asthmatic airways: expression of the alpha subunit of the high affinity immunoglobulin E receptor (Fc epsilon RI -alpha).
BACKGROUND Immunoglobulin E (IgE) plays an important role in asthma, with total serum IgE levels closely related to both clinical expression of the disease and airway hyperresponsiveness. IgE bindsExpand

A distinctive feature of asthma is the presence of a fibrotic response characterized by excess extracellular matrix deposition and proliferation of myofibroblasts, in the airway wall. This reviewExpand
Airway wall remodelling in asthma.
it is cartilaginous airways of <10mm and [10mm were con-apparent that airflow obstruction in asthma is often not sidered separately, the increase in wall area was found tocompletely reversible. AExpand
Cytokine profiles of BAL T cells and T‐cell clones obtained from human asthmatic airways after local allergen challenge
Background: This study assessed the heterogeneity of cytokine expression in asthma before and after local allergen challenge.
