B.; Bariffi, F.; Marsico, S. A. // European Journal of Clinical Pharmacology;May2001, Vol. 57 Issue 2, p99 

    Objectives: The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of non-bronchoconstrictive doses of propranolol on airway hyperresponsiveness to methacholine. Methods: Double increasing concentrations (from 0.03 to 64 µg/ml) of inhaled propranolol were administered to a study population which...

    Background: Vasodilator-stimulated phosphoprotein (VASP) mediates focal adhesion, actin filament binding and polymerization in a variety of cells, thereby inhibiting cell movement. Phosphorylation of VASP via cAMP and cGMP dependent protein kinases releases this "brake" on cell motility. Thus,...

    Background: Airway hyperresponsiveness is the ability of airways to narrow excessively in response to inhaled stimuli and is a key feature of asthma. Airway inflammation and ventilation heterogeneity have been separately shown to be associated with airway hyperresponsiveness. A study was...
