Abstract: Non-invasive collection methods suitable for studying the composition of the respiratory tract lining fluid (RTLF) in small airways are currently not readily available. The overall aim of this thesis was to contribute to the development of a non-invasive method for sampling of RTLF with the purpose of studying airway inflammation. As we breathe small particles of liquid are formed from the RTLF. These particles follow the airstream during exhalation and can be sampled from the exhaled breath u... more
