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...
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...
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...
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...
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 Skin Prick Test Tape delivered bio-equivalent results to the conventional skin prick test for the diagnosis of mite allergen sensitization, offering an easy and standardized application procedure,...
Nitric oxide is produced by enzymes called nitric oxide synthases. It fulfills many important functions in the human body, but produced in excess amount has a proinflammatory activity. Fractional exha...
The goal was to determine if inhaled nitric oxide (iNO) for 3 weeks during neonatal care of high-risk preterm infants was associated with improved pulmonary function and exercise capacity or altere...
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 ...
Tracheal stenosis is a rare and challenging disease. Bronchoscopy is the gold standard for diagnosis and assessment but brings inherent risks. Spirometry is commonly used to access obstructions but is...
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 ENDOTHELIAL CELLS.
A CALCIUM-dependent, constitutively-expressed form of nitric oxide synthase found primarily in NERVE TISSUE.
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.
COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease)
COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) is used for a number of conditions including chronic bronchitis and emphysema, which all lead to the airways in the lungs becoming damaged and thus narrower, making inhalation and exhalation harder...
