The interaction between chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection and bronchial asthma is of considerable interest. This study was designed to examine whether differences in airway responses to an inhaled anticholinergic agent exist between asthmatic patients with and without active...

Airway-wall remodelling may result in reduced airway distensibility in bronchial asthma. This study evaluated the baseline airway calibre and distensibility in asthmatic patients by means of high-resolution computed tomography (HRCT). We studied seven patients (two men, age range 36-69 years)...

The aim of the present study was to assess the reproducibility of changes in forced inspiratory volumes after bronchodilator inhalation. Thirteen patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) (FEV1, 32-75%pred) and 10 patients with asthma (FEV1, 43-75%pred) inhaled either 200...

The anticholinergic agent oxitropium bromide possesses rich crystal chemistry, most remarkably exhibiting a strong thermosalient effect ("jumping crystal" effect), a mechanical property with potential applications in organic-based actuators. The thermosalient effect, manifested in forceful jumps of up to several centimeters...
