  • The incidence of asthma is on the increase worldwide, yet the pathogenesis of this disease is still not fully understood. Many recent drug trials have had disappointing results, thus fuelling the need for more research to be undertaken in this area. Substantial evidence suggests an important role for platelets in various inflammatory diseases, including atherosclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, eczema, allergic rhinitis and asthma. In asthma, platelets have been found to actively participate in… CONTINUE READING
