Multiple Circulating Cytokines Are Coelevated in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

Inflammatory biomarkers, including cytokines, are associated with COPD, but the association of particular circulating cytokines with systemic pathology remains equivocal. To investigate this, we developed a protein microarray system to detect multiple cytokines in small volumes of serum. Fourteen cytokines were measured in serum from never-smokers, ex… CONTINUE READING
