Particulate pollutants have been suggested as a risk factor for increase in mortality and morbidity in patients with obstructive airway disease. In the present study we hypothesized that enhanced particle deposition dose is an underlying factor for such a finding. We measured lung deposition in normal healthy control subjects (N; n = 10) and in subjects with varying levels of airway obstruction: smokers (S; n = 10), smokers with small airways disease (SAD; n = 10), asthmatics (A; n = 5), and… CONTINUE READING
