OBJECTIVE Exhaled nitric oxide (FENO) and nasal nitric oxide (n NO) measurement is an area of ongoing research in the study of airway inflammation. The atopic status is known to influence the levels of FENO and n NO. This study was undertaken to study the relationship between nitric oxide measurements in bronchial asthma and allergic rhinitis along with(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Obesity and asthma are common inflammatory conditions, having presence of both local and systemic inflammation and this relationship is not well understood. This study was undertaken to compare pulmonary function parameters, inflammatory marker like C-reactive protein (hs-CRP), exhaled nitric oxide (FENO) and atopic profile between(More)
BACKGROUND The introduction of flexible bronchoscope has revolutionized the field of pulmonary medicine and is a standard instrument used for diagnostic purpose. A retrospective analysis of the clinico-radiological profile, indication, biopsy procedure and complications, for patients undergoing bronchoscopy at one of the respiratory unit at a tertiary care(More)
BACKGROUND Skin prick testing (SPT) is the 'gold standard' in the assessment of allergic sensitivity to inhalant allergens. Serum-specific immunoglobulin E (SSIgE) measurement is a complementary test. SPT is performed with antigen extracts from India while SSIgE utilises extracts derived from European antigens. OBJECTIVE To evaluate the performance of(More)
INTRODUCTION The study aimed to evaluate the association between food consumption pattern and asthma in Indian population. MATERIAL AND METHODS 125 asthma and corresponding age and sex matched healthy controls were recruited for the purpose of a study. A self- reported food-frequency questionnaire (NNR-Dietary Pattern in Asthma Questionnaire) comprising(More)
INTRODUCTION The study aimed to compare the effect of obesity with and without metabolic syndrome on asthma severity, quality of life, sleep quality, sleep disordered breathing and inflammatory markers as compared to non-obese asthma patients. MATERIAL AND METHODS 60 asthma patients recruited for the study were divided equally into non-obese (NOA), obese(More)
INTRODUCTION Asthma is a chronic airway inflammatory disorder. Nitric oxide (NO) is non-invasively measured in exhaled breath (FeNO). The aim of the study was to investigate the anthropometric and physiologic factors that influence FeNO measurements. Also, to evaluate FeNO correlation with spirometry and inflammatory markers in asthma and rhinitis. (More)
INTRODUCTION There has been a recent trend of increasing prevalence of asthma in developing countries; prevalence in the Indian population is reported to be 2%. The link between lifestyle factors and asthma has been mostly derived from western literature. The present study intended to study relationship if any, between life style factors and asthma in a(More)
