ABSTRACT
The article comments on the investigation of inflammatory response in bronchial biopsy specimens taken from patients admitted to the hospital with severe exacerbation of asthma. There was an increase of eosinophils and neutrophils which resulted in the infiltration of the airways by the granulocyte subtypes. The findings confirm previous observations on sputum and bronchoalveolar lavage fluid in asthma.
