  • BACKGROUND Eosinophil counts and eosinophil cationic protein (ECP) levels in the airway are elevated in asthmatic patients. However, few studies have examined the correlation between various cytokines in the sputum and airway hyperresponsiveness (AHR) in young adults with or without asthma. OBJECTIVE We examined the correlation between AHR and eosinophil counts or ECP, and levels of several cytokines in the sputum. METHODS We studied 120 nonsmoker students (group 1: intermittent mild… CONTINUE READING
