BACKGROUND AND AIMS Asthma is a highly prevalent, complex inflammatory disease of the airways often associated with bronchial hyperreactivity and atopy. The chemokine RANTES (regulated upon activation, normal T -cell expressed and secreted) is an important element for the chemotaxis at the site of allergic inflammation. This study aimed to assess the serum levels of the chemokines RANTES and monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 (MCP-1) in Egyptian patients with atopic asthma and to evaluate their… CONTINUE READING
