Although bronchial hyperresponsiveness in asthma is associated with inflammation within the airways, it is not known whether the degree and type of inflammation influence the response to different stimuli and whether pathologic changes of airway structure influence the bronchoconstrictive responses. Therefore, number of inflammatory cells in the epithelium and the lamina propria and the basement membrane thickness were estimated from bronchial biopsies taken in 27 asthmatic subjects (range… CONTINUE READING
