Recently, the evidence for platelet association with allergic diseases has been established by many researches. Activated platelets contribute to airway hyper reactivity, bronchoconstriction, airway inflammation and airway remodeling in asthmatic patients. We aimed to clarify platelet activation and key molecules on platelets, which are mainly associated with the mechanism underlying aspirin-exacerbated respiratory disease.
