    The article presents some papers related to clinical assessment of asthma. There is currently great interest in developing non-invasive measures of airway inflammation in asthma. Proposed markers of airway inflammation and or oxidative stress in asthma include the exhaled gases, nitric oxide...

    Nitric oxide (NO) production and carbon monoxide (CO) production are increased in inflammatory lung diseases. Although there are some pieces of evidence for hormonal modulation by estrogen, little is known about exhaled NO and CO during the ovarian cycle. In 23 subjects, we measured exhaled NO...

    Background: Increased production of nitric oxide (NO) by the lower respiratory tract is viewed as a marker of airway inflammation in asthma and bronchiectasis. NO is a potentially important immune modulator, inhibiting the release of several key pro-inflammatory cytokines. As...

    Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a major and rapidly increasing health problem associated with a chronic inflammatory response, predominantly in small airways and lung parenchyma. Oxidative stress induced by reactive oxygen and nitrogen species (ROS and RNS) plays a central role...

    ABSTRACT. The authors sought to determine which air pollutant is responsible for the increase in exhaled nitric oxide observed in healthy subjects. Exhaled nitric oxide was measured in 16 nonsmoking healthy subjects on 14 workdays, during which there were varying air-pollution levels....

C. Van // Archives of Environmental Health;Mar/Apr 2001, Vol. 56 Issue 2, p167 

    ABSTRACT. The authors used a longitudinal observational design, with repeated measures, to study the association between traffic-related air pollutants (i.e., nitric oxide, nitrogen dioxide, carbon monoxide, and Black Smoke) and respiratory symptoms. Subjects (N = 82) attended an elementary...

    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...
