This thesis consists of two parts , the first part is a study of the effects of inhaled PAF on the bronchial airway responsiveness . PAF also activates eosinophils to release major basic proteincincluding eosinophil cationic protein(ECP) which when measured in the bronchial lavage fluid can provide an indirect assessment of airway damage. The second part of the project is concerned with whether serum levels of ECP can also be correlated with airway damage.
