Title: DIAGNOSING ASTHMA BASED ON PENTRAXIN-3
Abstract:
A method of detecting a risk for or presence of asthma in a subject. The method comprises obtaining a biological sample comprising human airway smooth muscle cells from a subject and testing the biological sample for the presence of a pentraxin-3 (PTX3) polypeptide. The presence and/or quantity of PTX3 polypeptide in the biological sample correlates with the risk for or presence of asthma in the subject.
