Serum and urinary inflammatory markers could help doctors identify children with asthma, according to a Swedish study. Researchers at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm found that eosinophil and eosinophil protein levels in serum and urine were significantly higher in symptom-free children with animal dander allergy and asthma than in a control group. The study was presented at the American Academy of Asthma, Allergy and Immunology in Orlando, Florida earlier this year.
