Pulmonary function, activated T cells, peripheral blood eosinophilia, and serum activity for eosinophil survival in vitro: a longitudinal study in bronchial asthma.

Abstract

A close correlation among the number of activated, peripheral blood T helper cells, eosinophilia, and airflow obstruction has been reported in patients with asthma. To test these cross-sectional data we performed a prospective, longitudinal study investigating the relationships among T-cell activation in peripheral blood, eosinophilia, forced expiratory… (More)
