The article offers news briefs relating to pediatrics and adolescent medicine. Nitric oxide in preterm infants is not ready for widespread use. Acute otitis media in children with tympanostomy tubes was cured faster with topical, rather than with oral, antibiotics. Inhaled budesonide-formoterol was better than formoterol alone for rescue therapy and secondary prevention of asthma.

    Although nitric oxide (NO) has a well-established role in regulating renal function in the adult, recent studies point to perhaps an even more critical role for NO in maintaining basal renal blood flow (RBF) and glomerular filtration rate (GFR) in the developing kidney. The immature kidney has...
