Synopsis: 
Observing β2 agonist response is a simple procedure most likely to differentiate NAEB and CVA from AC. FEF25-75 is seem to be determinative for AHR in CVA, effectiveness of FEF25-75 rather than PEF in NAEB is considered so that NAEB may develop to CVA with time.

ABSTRACT

Background: The number of admissions to immunology and allergy clinics with chronic cough categorized as corticosteroid-responsive eosinophilic disorders are increasing. We aimed in this study to find the prevalence of Non-asthmatic eosinophilic bronchitis (NAEB), Cough variant asthma (CVA), Atopic cough (AC) and β2 agonist response among NAEB.

150–3
Synopsis: 
Elevation of pregnancy-associated plasma protein-A (PAPP-A), is considered as an independent risk factor for acute coronary syndrome (ACS). We found significantly high PAPP-A level in the serum of male smokers and this may indicate a higher risk for ACS among these men.
