HMGB1 and RAGE levels in induced sputum correlate with asthma severity and neutrophil percentage.

Previous work indicated that high mobility group box-1 (HMGB1) protein may be involved in neutrophilic asthma. Here, we sought to investigate the correlation between HMGB1 and one of its receptors, receptor for advanced glycosylation end products (RAGE), with the severity of bronchial asthma. Compared to the control group (30 healthy individuals), patients… CONTINUE READING
