It has been suggested that an increase in lung permeability is the cause for bronchial hyperreactivity in asthma. A method for measuring pulmonary epithelial permeability (PEP) has been developed recently. PEP is estimated by calculating the half-time clearance of inhaled diethylene triamine penta-acetate, labelled with 99m-technetium, with a scintillation… CONTINUE READING
