After laboratory procedures, all participants underwent spirometry for forced vital capacity (FVC), forced expiratory volume in 1 second (FEV1), FEV1/FVC ratio, and forced expiratory flow 25-75% (maximum mid-expiratory flow, [FEF.sub.25-75%]).
Pulmonary parameters such as tidal volume (TV), vital capacity (VC), forced VC (FVC), forced expiratory volume in first second ([FEV.sub.1]), maximum mid-expiratory flow rate (MMEF), peak expiratory flow rate (PEFR), and maximum voluntary ventilation (MVV) were significantly reduced in cases than controls as shown in Table 3, and they were inversely correlated with Cobb's angle as shown in Table 4.
Changes in asthma scores, lung function parameters (forced expiratory volume in 1 s [FEV[sub]1], peak expiratory flow [PEF], forced expiratory flow at 50% of forced vital capacity [FEF[sub]50], forced expiratory flow at 75% of forced vital capacity, maximum mid-expiratory flow rate) and the concentrations of IL-4 and IL-6 in EBC were measured.
Pulmonary function measures analyzed were forced vital capacity (FVC), forced expiratory volume at 1 sec (FE[V.sub.1]), peak expiratory flow (PEF), and maximum mid-expiratory flow (MMEF).
