    Single-breath diffusing capacity of the lung for carbon monoxide (DLCO) is a common pulmonary function test that measures the ability of the lung to exchange gas across the alveolar-capillary interface. DLCO testing is used to narrow the differential diagnosis of obstructive and restrictive lung...

    BACKGROUND: Airway acidification plays a role in disorders of the pulmonary tract. We hypothesized that the inhalation of alkalinized glycine buffer would measurably alkalinize the airways without compromising lung function or causing adverse events. We evaluated the safety of an inhaled...

    Background: Childhood asthma is generally believed to be a disorder with a good prognosis. However, some asthmatics develop irreversible airway obstruction, probably as a result of airway remodelling. Methods: After 21-33 years, 228 adults (aged 13-44 years at baseline) with a history of asthma...
