In vivo models of lung neutrophil activation. Comparison of mice and hamsters (2002)
Journal Article
Corteling, R., Wyss, D., & Trifilieff, A. (2002). In vivo models of lung neutrophil activation. Comparison of mice and hamsters. BMC Pharmacology, 2(1),

BACKGROUND: Evidence suggests that both the migration and activation of neutrophils into the airway is of importance in pathological conditions such as pulmonary emphysema. In the present study, we describe in vivo models of lung neutrophil infiltrat... Read More about In vivo models of lung neutrophil activation. Comparison of mice and hamsters.

Pharmacogenetics, pharmacogenomics and airway disease (2002)
Journal Article
Hall, I. P. (2002). Pharmacogenetics, pharmacogenomics and airway disease. Respiratory Research, 3(1),

The availability of a draft sequence for the human genome will revolutionise research into airway disease. This review deals with two of the most important areas impinging on the treatment of patients: pharmacogenetics and pharmacogenomics. Considera...
