BACKGROUND Decreased dipeptidylpeptidase IV (DPPIV) activity within the human nasal mucosa has previously been shown to contribute to the severity of chronic inflammatory rhinosinusitis. OBJECTIVE To investigate and correlate the role of DPPIV activity with regard to bronchial inflammation. METHODS DPPIV/CD26 activity/concentration was investigated in the bronchial tissue of human subjects suffering from chronic bronchial inflammation. In addition, the effect of a recombinant Aspergillus… CONTINUE READING
