Time course of the bronchoconstriction induced by inhaled histamine and methacholine.


Eleven asthmatic subjects inhaled doubling concentrations of histamine until a near sixfold increase in total pulmonary flow resistance had been reached. This last concentration (C6) of histamine and methacholine was administered on two subsequent separate visits. Specific lung conductance (sGL) dropped to 18.6 +/- 7.9 (SD) and 19.1 +/- 10.3% of initial… (More)
