To clarify the changes in bronchial cartilage in diseased airways, we performed morphometric analysis of airways in autopsied lungs of 16 patients with chronic bronchitis (Group CB), pulmonary emphysema (Group PE), and bronchial asthma...
Nocturnal asthma is affected by genetic interactions between RORA and NPSR1.
Background: Neuropeptide S Receptor 1 (NPSR1) and Retinoid Acid Receptor?Related Orphan Receptor Alpha (RORA) interact biologically, are both known candidate genes for asthma, and are involved in controlling...
