    Nocturnal worsening of asthma is very common and employed in clinical practice as a marker of asthma severity. The fall in overnight lung function can reach 50%. Several mechanisms contribute to this circadian (24 h) variation. Cortisol, steroid responsiveness, vagal tone, leukotriene, airway...
