  • doi: 10.4168/aair.2013.5.4.239
Breastfeeding is widely recommended to reduce risk of sensitization, eczema and asthma. However, the role of breastfeeding in prevention of allergic diseases is uncertain. We aimed to investigate whether the...
Rhinitis Patients With Sputum Eosinophilia Show Decreased Lung Function in the Absence of Airway Hyperresponsiveness

Yang MS, Lee HS, Kim MH, Song WJ, Kim TW, Kwon JW, Kim SH, Park HW, Chang YS, Cho SH, Min KU

  • Allergy Asthma Immunol Res.
  • 2013 Jul;5(4):232-238.
  • doi: 10.4168/aair.2013.5.4.232
PURPOSE: Sputum eosinophilia is observed frequently in patients with rhinitis. Sputum eosinophilia in patients with non-asthmatic allergic rhinitis has been suggested to be related to nonspecific airway hyperresponsiveness (AHR). However,...
Effect of Prostaglandin E2 on Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor Production in Nasal Polyp Fibroblasts

Han DY, Cho JS, Moon YM, Lee HR, Lee HM, Lee BD, Baek BJ

  • Allergy Asthma Immunol Res.
