Chronic bronchitis: New insights could lead to first diagnostic test, better treatments

Researchers describe how the concentration of mucins -- the proteins that make mucus thick -- is abnormally high in chronic bronchitis and that high mucin concentrations are associated with disease severity in people with chronic bronchitis. This finding could become the first-ever objective marker of chronic bronchitis and lead to the creation of diagnostic and prognostic tools.
