    Rationale Airway inflammation in asthma is heterogeneous with different phenotypes. The inflammatory cell phenotype is modified by corticosteroids and smoking. Steroid therapy is beneficial in eosinophilic asthma (EA), but evidence is conflicting regarding non-eosinophilic asthma (NEA)....

    Background: Airway eosinophilia is a predictor of steroid responsiveness in steroid-naïve asthma. However, the relationship between airway eosinophilia and the expression of FK506-binding protein 51 (FKBP51), a glucocorticoid receptor co-chaperone that plays a role in steroid insensitivity in...

    The article focuses on the inflammatory airway disease such as asthma and the techniques used to assess airway inflammation using induced sputum and exhaled nitric oxide. It states that raised nitric oxide level indicates a positive response to corticosteroids in a heterogeneous population of...
