Validity of Fractional Exhaled Nitric Oxide and Impulse Oscillometry in Patients With Cough Variant Asthma

The aim of the research is to evaluate the clinical value of fractional exhaled nitric oxide(FeNO) ,impulse oscillometry(IOS) and mid-expiratory flow (MEF) in patients with cough variant a...

Daily Monitoring of Exhaled Nitric Oxide in Asthmatic Patients

Previous studies have demonstrated that exhaled nitric oxide can be useful to monitor the efficacy of anti-inflammatory treatment as well as to predict a risk of asthma relapse in asthmati...

Evaluation of Different Disease Control Indices in Children With Asthma and Rhinitis

In this study will be consecutive enrolled children with asthma (classified according to GINA guidelines) and rhinitis (classified by ARIA guidelines); the investigators will research clin...

Nitric Oxide, LPS and the Pathogenesis of Asthma Phase 1

The purpose of the study is to determine the role of nitric oxide (NO) in asthma. We determine the effect of promoter polymorphisms in the gene for the NO producing enzyme, nitric oxide s...

Zileuton and Exhaled Nitric Oxide in Asthmatics

Evaluate the additive role of zileuton 600mg qid to clinically stable asthmatics on Advair 250/50 bid. Since asthma is an endogenous inflammatory disease there usually is increased total e...

The airway hyperresponsiveness to methacholine may be predicted by impulse oscillometry and plethysmography in children with well-controlled asthma.

Airway hyperresponsiveness (AHR) is a hallmark of asthma. Methacholine challenge test which is mostly used to confirm AHR is not routinely available. The aim of this study was to investigate the predi...

Altered levels of exhaled nitric oxide in rheumatoid arthritis.

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune disorder characterized by bone and joint destruction, but other organ systems can also be involved. Recent studies have suggested that the disease may start ...

The Diagnostic Accuracy of Fractional Exhaled Nitric Oxide Testing in Asthma: A Systematic Review and Meta-analyses.

To evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of fractional exhaled nitric oxide (FeNO) measurement in individuals with suspected asthma.

Asthma predictive index in relation to respiratory mechanics by impulse oscillometry in recurrent wheezers.

The identification of children who will have persistent asthma has become a focus of recent research. The aim of this study was to assess whether impulse oscillometry (IOS) has a diagnostic value to p...

Comparison between Newly Developed and Commercial Inhalant Skin Prick Test Reagents Using In Vivo and In Vitro Methods.

We developed skin prick test (SPT) reagents for common inhalant allergens that reflected the real exposure in Korea. The study aim was to evaluate diagnostic usefulness and allergen potency of our inh...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A free radical gas produced endogenously by a variety of mammalian cells, synthesized from ARGININE by NITRIC OXIDE SYNTHASE. Nitric oxide is one of the ENDOTHELIUM-DEPENDENT RELAXING FACTORS released by the vascular endothelium and mediates VASODILATION. It also inhibits platelet aggregation, induces disaggregation of aggregated platelets, and inhibits platelet adhesion to the vascular endothelium. Nitric oxide activates cytosolic GUANYLATE CYCLASE and thus elevates intracellular levels of CYCLIC GMP.

An NADPH-dependent enzyme that catalyzes the conversion of L-ARGININE and OXYGEN to produce CITRULLINE and NITRIC OXIDE.

A CALCIUM-dependent, constitutively-expressed form of nitric oxide synthase found primarily in NERVE TISSUE.

A CALCIUM-dependent, constitutively-expressed form of nitric oxide synthase found primarily in ENDOTHELIAL CELLS.

A CALCIUM-independent subtype of nitric oxide synthase that may play a role in immune function. It is an inducible enzyme whose expression is transcriptionally regulated by a variety of CYTOKINES.
