1. Airway Inflammatory Biomarker: Could It Tailor the Right Medications for the Right Asthmatic Patient?

Magdy Mohamed Zedan; Amal Mohamed Osman; Wafaa Nabil Laimon; Mohamed Magdy Zedan; Nermin Youssef Abo-elkheir; Ahmed Zaki

Volume 13, Issue 2 , Spring 2016, Pages 70-88

Abstract
  Asthma is a heterogeneous disease, in which asthmatic patients present with different clinical phenotypes, variable endotypes, and different response to asthma medicines. Thus, we are faced with an asthma paradox; asthma is diagnosed subjectively by clinical history and treated with biologically active ...  Read More
