Background: Control cannot be achieved in some asthmatics although optimal monitoring and treatment is administered. Glucocorticoid (GC) resistance is one of the reasons of poor asthma control. We aimed to investigate GC resistance by lymphocyte proliferation suppression test (LPST) in uncontrolled asthmatics.
