BACKGROUND Type 2 helper T lymphocyte-specific chemokines including macrophage-derived chemokine (MDC), thymus and activation-regulated chemokine (TARC) and eotaxin are important mediators for allergic airway inflammation. OBJECTIVE We investigated whether these chemokines can be detected in exhaled breath condensate (EBC) and their relation to childhood asthma. METHODS Asthmatics recruited from paediatric clinics of a university teaching hospital were classified into intermittent asthma… CONTINUE READING
