Özet

Background: Studies about the pathogenesis of bronchial hyperreactivity (BHR) in patients with allergic rhinitis (AR) and its relationship with lower airway remodeling are extremely limited. In this study, bronchial vascular remodeling and its relationship with BHR were evaluated by measurement of vascular endothelial growth factor A (VEGF-A) and endostatin in patients with seasonal AR (SAR).
