    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...

    The stress-inducible protein heme oxygenase-1 provides protection against oxidative stress. The anti-inflammatory properties of heme oxygenase-1 may serve as a basis for this cytoprotection. We demonstrate here that carbon monoxide, a by-product of heme catabolism by heme oxygenase, mediates...

    Summary Nitric oxide (NO), an evanescent atmospheric gas, has recently been discovered to be an important biological mediator in animals and humans. Nitric oxide plays a key role within the lung in the modulation of a wide variety of functions including pulmonary vascular tone, nonadrenergic...

    Heme-oxygenase (HO) is the rate limiting enzyme in the metabolism of heme to form biliverdin, carbon monoxide, and free iron. HO-1 and HO-2 are expressed in normal colonic aoesophageal epithelium. HO-1 expression is increased in inflammatory bowel disease colorec cancer, and Barreft's...

    To explore the involvement of nitric oxide (NO) in the induction of heme oxygenase-1, an essential enzyme in heme catabolism, we studied the effects of NO donors on the expression of heme oxygenase-1 mRNA in HeLa human cervical cancer cells. Treatment with each of three NO donors, sodium...

    Heme oxygenase (110) isozymes, HO-1 and 110-2, catalyze the conversion of heme to iron, carbon monoxide, and biliverdin. The present study was aimed at elucidating the role of the 110 system in iron accumulation and oxidative stress in the liver. We have also studied the regulation of an iron...

    Several lines of evidence suggest that antioxidant processes and (or) endogenous antioxidants inhibit proatherogenic events in the blood vessel wall. Heme oxygenase (HO), which catabolizes heme to biliverdin, carbon monoxide, and catalytic iron, has been shown to have such antioxidative...

    The cerebrovascular effects of the heme oxygenase-carbon monoxide pathway were studied in the rat hypothalamus. Intraperitoneal administration of the heme oxygenase inhibitor zinc deuteroporphyrin 2,4-bis glycol (ZnDPBG, 45 �mol/kg) had no significant effect on the resting cerebral blood...

    Heme oxygenase (HO) is a microsomal enzyme that catalyzes the degradation of heme into biliverdin, which is subsequently reduced to bilirubin, free iron and carbon monoxide (CO), and induction of heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1) is potentially associated with cellular protection, especially against...
