Özet

Background: Adenosine 5'-triphosphate (ATP) stimulates pulmonary vagal slow conducting C-fibres and fast conducting A delta-fibres with rapidly adapting receptors (RARs). Pulmonary C-fibres but not RARs are also sensitive to capsaicin, a potent tussigenic agent in humans. Thus, the aim of this study was to determine the effects of ATP and its metabolite adenosine (given as adenosine 5'-monophosphate, AMP) on capsaicin challenge in asthmatic patients.
