BACKGROUND Guinea-pig models can provide the essential features of asthma, including early- (EAR) and late- (LAR) phase asthmatic responses, airway hyper-reactivity (AHR) and inflammatory cell influx; however, these components are rarely demonstrated all in the same model. OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to establish a conscious guinea-pig model with these essential features of asthma and to correlate these with bronchoalveolar lavage fluid (BALF) histamine and nitric oxide (NO) levels… CONTINUE READING
