This recent US patent application (#20110165594) from Cleveland Clinic Foundation describes a method of diagnosing asthma by assaying for elevated levels of one or more oxidatively-modified superoxide dismutase (SOD) species selected from extracellular (EC)-SOD, CuZn SOD, and MnSOD in blood, serum, or plasma. The presence of elevated levels of said one or more oxidatively-modified SOD species in the test sample as compared to levels of the one or more oxidatively-modified SOD species in a control sample indicates that the subject is at risk of having asthma.
