Allergic asthma is associated with the recruitment of activated inflammatory cells after allergen challenge. Surface expression of CD14 has been proposed as a marker of cell activation and differentiation. We therefore measured CD14 expression on activated macrophages and granulocytes as well as soluble CD14 (sCD14) concentrations in peripheral blood and bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) following segmental allergen provocation (SAP) with individually standardized doses of allergen in eight patients… CONTINUE READING
