Abstract

We determined RANTES (regulated on activation, normal T cell expressed and secreted) and interleukin-8 (IL-8) concentrations, and total white blood cell (WBC) and differential counts in nasal wash samples from rhinovirus-infected infants presenting with wheezing or acute upper respiratory illness alone and compared them with those from healthy infants. RANTES concentrations were significantly greater in acute samples from wheezy patients than in those from patients with acute upper respiratory illness only, or in control samples. IL-8 concentrations and WBC and neutrophil counts were significantly greater in acute samples from wheezy infants and patients with upper respiratory illness alone than in control samples, but they did not differ significantly between the 2 patient groups.
