Exhaled breath condensate levels of eotaxin and macrophage-derived chemokine in stable adult asthma patients.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Asthma is associated with esoinophilic airway inflammation and overproduction of T-helper type 2 (Th2) lymphocyte-related cytokines. OBJECTIVE This study assessed the eosinophil chemoattractant eotaxin and Th2-specific macrophage-derived chemokine (MDC) in the adult asthmatic airway. Eotaxin and MDC levels were determined in exhaled breath… (More)
