INTRODUCTION: Asthma is a chronic inflammatory disorder of the airways punctuated by acute exacerbations. Coagulation and fibrinolysis pathways are increasingly recognised in the asthmatic inflammatory milieu and markers of fibrin turnover represent potential asthma biomarkers targets. A biomarker in plasma or urine predicting exacerbation could enable early intervention to attenuate or prevent exacerbation. STUDY DESIGN: A study in 2 parts comparing exacerbation and stable asthma was… CONTINUE READING
