[Serum phospholipase A2 activity in patients with aspirin-induced asthma].

Abstract

Urinary excretion of leukotrienes is greater in patients with aspirin-induced asthma (AIA) than in other patients with asthma in remission, and is greater still during an aspirin-induced attack. We therefore hypothesized that increased phospholipase A2 (PLA2) activity leads to increased leukotriene synthesis when non-steroidal antiinflammatory drugs inhibit… (More)
