Measurement of exhaled breath condensate (EBC) purines and other biomarkers offers a less invasive method to assess airway inflammation; however, the feasibility and utility of EBC biomarkers in young children has not been established. METHODS EBC was collected from children <3 years old with cystic… CONTINUE READING
