BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Stable asthma is characterized by the production of Th2 cytokines, although Th1 cytokines may play a key role in aspects such as airway hyper-responsiveness. This study explored cytokine profiles associated with asthma exacerbation. METHODS Intracellular T-cell cytokine production was measured in 16 children with acute severe asthma (emergency department), after convalescence (6 weeks, n = 13), with stable disease (after 6 months, n = 7) and in 14 age-matched hospital… CONTINUE READING
