The overall hypotheses are: 1) an indirect airway challenge procedure using mannitol can safely characterize asthma phenotypes, predict asthma control and exacerbations, predict responses to interventions, and perform more specifically than a direct methacholine challenge and; 2) PX27 pore function in whole blood correlates with measures of airway hyperresponsiveness induced by methacholine and/or mannitol challenges
