In the last 5 years our research group has investigated the role of chitotriosidase in the pathogenesis of different inflammatory lung diseases, such as sarcoidosis . Here we analyzed serum concentrations of chitotriosidase in allergic and non-allergic asthma patients and in a group of controls to evaluate its potential involvement in the different pathways of inflammation occurring in this disease.In conclusion, though preliminary, this data suggests that chitotriosidase is much more enhanced in serum of asthma patients than controls.

Abstract

In the last 5 years our research group has investigated the role of chitotriosidase in the pathogenesis of different inflammatory lung diseases, such as sarcoidosis . Here we analyzed serum concentrations of chitotriosidase in allergic and non-allergic asthma patients and in a group of controls to evaluate its potential involvement in the different pathways of inflammation occurring in this disease.In conclusion, though preliminary, this data suggests that chitotriosidase is much more enhanced in serum of asthma patients than controls.
