    Background: Cystatin C (CysC) is a potent nonorgan-specific cysteine protease inhibitor and may contribute to elastolysis and tissue destruction by a mechanism of protease-antiprotease imbalance. Given the prevalence of CysC in the serum of smokers and its role in tissue destruction, we aimed to...
