Fractional analysis of Th2-type cytokines in sequential samples of induced sputum.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Recent studies have demonstrated the usefulness of induced sputum in detecting the expression of Th2-type cytokines in asthmatics and have shown that the profile of inflammatory cells in induced sputum differs with time. OBJECTIVE To determine whether the duration of sputum induction also affects the expression of Th2-type cytokines in induced… (More)
