    Deep inhalation (DI) induces changes in airway calibre that may last beyond the manoeuvre itself. The mechanisms involve mechanical interaction between conducting airways subjected to parenchymal tethering and lung parenchyma itself. Healthy children usually show small bronchodilation after DI....

    The relative contributions of large and small airways to hyperresponsiveness in asthma have yet to be fully assessed. This study used a mouse model of chronic allergic airways disease to induce inflammation and remodelling and determine whether in vivo hyperresponsiveness to methacholine is...

    Background: The prevalence of asthma and bronchial hyper-responsiveness is greater in elite athletes than in the general population, and its association with mild airway inflammation has recently been reported. Objective: To study the relationship between the type of sport practised at the...

    Background: Little is known regarding mechanistic and phenotypic differences between cough variant asthma (CVA), presenting with a chronic cough as the sole symptom that responds to bronchodilators, and classic asthma with wheezing during methacholine inhalation. Here we reported airway...

    Background/Aim. Physical activity is a common stimulus of asthmatic symptoms manifestation. Airway hyperreactivity is a predisposing cause of exercise induced bronchial obstruction, diagnosed by histamine inhalation. The aim of this study was to determine the relation between the amounts of...

    Background: The relationship between cough receptor sensitivity and eosinophilic inflammation of the airway in patients with asthma remains unclear. Methods: Eighteen patients with asthma sensitised to house dust mite (HDM) were enrolled in a randomised parallel group study. Patients with asthma...

    Bronchial responsiveness to methacholine or histamine increases at night and may contribute to the mechanisms of nocturnal asthma. Hypertonic saline (HS) is a more clinically relevant stimulus for the diagnosis and assessment of the severity of asthma, but the circadian variation in bronchial...

    Asthma is a prevalent and sometimes debilitating lung disorder caused by diverse triggers in susceptibleindividuals. Based on the salutary effect of drugs relaxing airway smooth muscle (ASM) in the treatment of asthma, thereis no doubt that airway narrowing elicited by ASM shortening is involved...

    Background The mechanisms of chronic cough are unclear. Many reactive oxygen species affect airway sensory C-fibres which are capable to induce cough. Several chronic lung diseases are characterised by cough and oxidative stress. In asthma, an association between the cough severity and airway...
