    Background: It has been proposed that the ph of airway lining fluid may regulate the fractional exhaled concentration of nitric oxide (FENO) in respiratory disease. Methods: FENO, exhaled breath condensate (BC) ph, and BC concentrations of nitrite plus nitrate (NO2/NO3) were compared in 12...

    Background-Exhaled nitric oxide levels are low in patients with cystic fibrosis (CF), despite the chronic inflammation present in the airways. This study aimed to determine whether levels of exhaled nitric oxide were reduced prior to the onset of respiratory symptoms in infants with CE...

    Background-Cigarette smoking reduces the level of exhaled nitric oxide (NO) in healthy subjects, although the mechanism is unclear. NO is a highly reactive mol- ecule which can be oxidised or complexed with other biomolecules, depending on the microenvironment. The stable oxidation end products...

    Background: Dose dependent anti-inflammatory effects of inhaled corticosteroids in asthma are difficult to demonstrate in clinical practice. The anti-inflammatory effect of low dose inhaled budesonide on non-invasive exhaled markers of inflammation and oxidative stress were assessed in patients...
