    Background: Eotaxin is a chemokine specific for eosinophils and may play an important role in eosinophil recruitment in asthma. The effects of eotaxin inhalation on sputum and blood eosinophils, exhaled nitric oxide (NO), and bronchial responsiveness were determined. Methods: Eotaxin was...

    BACKGROUND: Ozone exposure induces airway neutrophilia and modifies innate immune monocytic cell-surface phenotypes in healthy individuals. High-dose inhaled corticosteroids can reduce O3-induced airway inflammation, but their effect on innate immune activation is unknown. OBJECTIVES: We used a...

    Nitric oxide (NO) is an endogenous, soluble gas whose highly reactive molecules are involved in many biological and pathophysiological organic processes. It is generated from arginine through the action of the enzyme nitric oxide synthase (NOS). Over the recent years, accurate and non-invasive...

    Exhaled nitric oxide is a more accurate indicator of asthma in pre-school children than lung-function measures or bronchodilator responsiveness, according to research. Finnish researchers assessed 96 pre-school children with an asthmatic history or symptoms of asthma, and 62 age-matched...

    The role of different subpopulations of bronchial macrophages (BMs) in asthma pathogenesis has not yet been completely elucidated. In addition, little is known about potential in vivo responsiveness of BMs to pro- and anti-inflammatory cytokines present in the bronchial milieu. We aimed to...

    Complex mechanisms regulate nitric oxide (NO) synthesis. Cigarette smoking decreases fractional exhaled NO (FENO), while asthmatic inflammation increases FENO. To assess whether the smoking-induced decrease in FENO levels was reversible, asthmatic and non-asthmatic smokers inhaled the NO...

    Background: There is a lack of objective measures of the clinical efficacy of allergen immunotherapy which relies on patients' perception about the effect of this treatment. We studied whether the fraction of exhaled nitric oxide is affected by multiple allergen immunotherapy in polysensitized...

    In sensitive asthmatic children, the exposure to relevant allergens causes a deterioration of lung function and symptoms associated with an increase of inflammatory indices. The aim of this single-blind randomized add-on study was to compare the effects of montelukast or formoterol added to...
