The objective is to determine levels of stefins A and B, cathepsin S and creatinine in biological fluids of healthy and asthmatic subjects. The purpose is to characterise their circadian rhythms in serum in order to evaluate the influance of daily variations on the sampling, and to determine their deviations before and after corticosteroid and cyclosporine A treatment. In order to evaluate potential of cystatin C as a marker of glomerular filtration rate in asthmatic patients creatinine levels will be measured in the same samples. The results may provide better understanding of the role of cysteine proteinases and their inhibitors in pathophysiological processes of asthma and may be of clinical interest as additional biochemical parameters for monitoring the disease and its therapy.
