    BackgroundTwo distinct, stable inflammatory phenotypes have been described in adults with asthma: eosinophilic and non-eosinophilic. Treatment strategies based on these phenotypes have been successful. This study evaluated sputum cytology in children with asthma to classify sputum inflammatory...

However, in children this technique is not regarded as feasible since young children tend to swallow their sputum and do not expectorate. Gastric lavage has been used to...
