Association between protozoa in sputum and asthma: A case-control study
Respiratory Medicine,

Van Woerden HC et al. – This case–control study demonstrates an association between flagellated protozoa in sputum and asthma. It is now necessary to confirm and characterise the protozoa using genetic techniques based on 18S ribosomal RNA. Once tis is established it would be worthwhile to determine if asthma symptoms improve when treated by anti–protozoal agents.
