BACKGROUND Airway inflammation is important in the development and progression of asthma. Activation of inflammatory cells induces a respiratory burst resulting in the production of reactive oxygen species, such as H(2)O(2). The aim of this study was to measure the concentration of H(2)O(2) in exhaled breath condensate and its correlation with airway… CONTINUE READING
