Abstract

Objectives: The aim of the study was to evaluate the possible relationship of clinical severity during asthmatic exacerbation with the ventricular functions and the levels of vascular endothelial-related biomarkers endothelin-1 (ET-1) and platelet-derived growth factor-BB (PDGF-BB) in the condensed breathing air in the children with asthma.
