Abstract

This study suggests that exercise-induced asthma may be modulated by adrenergic agonists through their effects on tissues other than bronchial smooth muscle, such as mast cells or skeletal muscle. Future studies are needed to better define these mechanisms in order to allow more rational use of adrenergic agents and perhaps to direct development of agents with more selective activity.
