|Title:||Induced sputum and bronchial mucosal expression of interleukin-13 is not increased in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.|

|Abstract:||The Th2 cytokine interleukin-13 (IL-13) has been implicated in the pathogenesis of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). We sought to examine IL-13 expression in COPD subjects in induced sputum and bronchus specimens. We hypothesized that inflammatory cells expressing IL-13 localize to the airway smooth muscle bundle and bronchial glands.|
