The article provides information about a study that examined the bronchial epithelial cells (BECs) from controls and patients with asthma. The BECs, obtained using bronchoscopy, were cultured and exposed to rhinovirus 16. The results showed that there was no significant difference between patients with asthma and controls. The authors concluded that interferon-Ï’-induced protein ten (IP10) may be a useful clinical marker to identify rhinovirus-induced asthma.

We now learn that the EMT inducer Twist operates under the control of hypoxia signalling in...

    Background: Premature cervical remodeling/ripening is believed to contribute to preterm delivery (PTD), the leading cause of perinatal morbidity and mortality. Despite considerable research, the causes of term and PTD remain unclear, and there is no effective treatment for PTD. We previously...
