BACKGROUND Magnesium (Mg) is involved in numerous physiological functions, including protein folding, intracellular signalling and enzyme catalysis. It acts as a smooth muscle relaxant. We decided to test changes of total Mg concentration in plasma, leukocytes and urine of 16 healthy children and 26 patients with intermittent asthma aged 3 to 14 years. METHODS Samples were taken on the first day of broncho-obstruction and five days after the acute attack. During this period, patients were… CONTINUE READING
