Effect of inhaled nitric oxide on pulmonary function in cystic fibrosis.

Concentrations of nitric oxide (NO) have been found to be reduced in both the upper and lower airway of patients with cystic fibrosis (CF). As NO modulates bronchomuscular tone, low NO levels may contribute to the obstructive lung disease in these patients. To assess whether increasing inspiratory NO concentrations has any impact on lung function, we have… CONTINUE READING
