Abstract

The involvement of the epithelium in the adrenergic reactions of airways smooth muscles was studied. The epithelium-dependent pathway of the bronchodilating action of catecholamines, which played a minor role was found to become decisive in some cases. In that case the epithelial inflammatory lesion could be a cause of reducing the response of the bronchi to catecholamines.
