Several studies have suggested that patients with bronchial asthma are more susceptible to the potential effects of nitrogen dioxide (NO2) than healthy subjects, with respect to airway responsiveness and lung function. We investigated whether these differences are paralleled by differences in the cellular and biochemical response within the airway lumen. Twelve subjects with mild extrinsic asthma and eight normal subjects breathed either filtered air or 1 ppm NO2 in a single-blind manner during… CONTINUE READING
