Inflammatory mediators in nasal lavage, induced sputum and serum of employees with rheumatic and respiratory disorders


Inflammatory mediators in nasal lavage, induced sputum and serum of employees with rheumatic and respiratory disorders



European Respiratory Journal 18(3): 542-548

Exposure to microbes present in mould-damaged buildings has been linked to increased frequency of various inflammatory diseases. The current study examined differences in inflammatory mediators in nasal lavage (NAL), induced sputum (IS) and serum of occupants with rheumatic or respiratory disorders and their controls, all working in the same moisture-damaged building.
