OBJECTIVE To describe the frequency of aerosol pentamidine-induced bronchoconstriction, its relationship to non-specific airway responsiveness, and its response to preventive therapy using salbutamol, ipratropium bromide, or sodium cromoglycate. METHODS Consecutive HIV-infected individuals starting prophylactic AP were eligible if they had not been previously treated with this agent. Simple spirometry was performed before and 10 min after a single 60-mg dose given through an ultrasonic… CONTINUE READING
