By Peter Barnes (auth.), Primarius Dr. Hartmut Zwick (eds.)

The Austrian Pneumological Society held its 33th Workshop on "Clinical respiration body structure" at Graz, November 1 st -3rd, 1990. Bronchial hyperresponsiveness has been identified approximately so long as bronchial asthma bronchia Ie itself. over the last 20 years whereas exploring the inflammatory nature of bronchial asthma bronchiale we have now realized much approximately measuring and editing this phenomenon. as a result functional relevance and as a result of the excessive competence of the authors we are hoping that the lectures and discussions we had at Graz will tell and luxuriate in the reader. i would like to precise my deep gratitude to all of the authors for delivering us with the manuscripts and graphs. ultimately i'm particularly thankful to Mrs. H. Weber for her secreterial paintings and to Mrs. magazine. A. Lahrmann-Ramharter for correcting the written model of the speeches and getting ready a manuscript that was once prepared for the clicking. Prim.

The foreign Astronomical Union Colloquium on Stellar Rotation was once held on the Ohio nation college in Columbus, Ohio, U. S. A. from September eighth via eleven th, 1969. Forty-four scientists from Argentina, Belgium, Canada, England, Finland, East and West Germany, Italy, Israel, Japan, The Netherlands, and the U.S. attended and took part within the Colloquium.

So I would go along with Dr. Barnes, eosinophils seem to be important cells in the asthmatic. Perhaps neutrophils are, too, in other settings and in response to other stimuli. Kummer: These forced flow-volume curves that you showed as a response to forced inspiration and then expiration were resembling the one that we usually see in small airways disease when this curve is sort of hanging through. Could you imagine that in procedures that cause reactions in the periphery like inflammation in spontaneous asthma there might be more air trapping?

Before and after sulbutamol over one week, expressed as a percentage of the mean of the lowest minus the highest values divided by the highest. The lower the PC20 (the greater the increase in responsiveness), the greater is the diurnal variation of flow rates (the greater is the variable airway obstruction). This relationship to variable airway obstruction is also illustrated by the ease with which bronchoconstriction can be triggered by other stimuli, such as exercise or hyperventilation of cold dry air.
