STUDY OBJECTIVES To determine the concentration of exhaled H(2)O(2) in patients with bronchiectasis, and to study the relationship between levels of exhaled H(2)O(2), extent of disease, symptoms score, spirometry, and cellular composition obtained from induced sputum; furthermore, to account for possible confounding effects of inhaled corticosteroids (ICS) usage, long-term oral antibiotic treatment, and chronic colonization with Pseudomonas aeruginosa. DESIGN Cross-sectional study. PATIENTS… CONTINUE READING
