Eosinophil granule proteins such as eosinophil cationic protein (ECP), eosinophil peroxidase (EPO) and eosinophil protein X (EPX) in serum and urine are indirect measures of eosinophil activity. The measures have been evaluated for prediction, diagnosis and monitoring of anti-inflammatory treatment modalities in children with asthma. Assessments in serum and urine are highly dependent on sampling procedures and must be performed under strictly controlled conditions using standardized sampling… CONTINUE READING
