    Background: Eotaxin is a chemokine specific for eosinophils and may play an important role in eosinophil recruitment in asthma. The effects of eotaxin inhalation on sputum and blood eosinophils, exhaled nitric oxide (NO), and bronchial responsiveness were determined. Methods: Eotaxin was...

    Background: Phosphodiesterase 4 (PDE4) inhibitors increase intracellular cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP), leading to regulation of inflammatory cell functions. Roflumilast is a potent and targeted PDE4 inhibitor. The objective of this study was to evaluate the effects of roflumilast on...

    Background: Assessment of sputum eosinophilia has shown benefit in the diagnosis and monitoring of asthma. However, the possibility of bronchospasm related to the hypertonic saline used in sputum induction appears to have limited this procedure's acceptance in clinical practice. Objective:...

    Forty-eight patients suffering from intermittent bronchial asthma underwent methacholine challenge test. Response was stronger in 29 patients and less pronounced in 19. The two groups had the same characteristics except for the cumulative methacholine dose which was lower in severe...
