The Correlation between FSTL1 Expression and Airway Remodeling in Asthmatics

Abstract

BACKGROUND Asthma is characterized by airway remodeling. Follistatin-like protein 1 (FSTL1) is an extracellular glycoprotein. Recent studies suggest that FSTL1 may participate in the pathogenesis of asthma. OBJECTIVES To analyze the association between FSTL1 and some parameters and inspect the role of FSTL1 in asthma. METHODS We examined FSTL1 levels in… (More)
