Airways inflammation has been associated with increased nitric oxide (NO) in the exhaled breath. It was, therefore, questioned whether exhaled NO could act as an indicator of the severity of airways inflammation in the chronic suppurative lung diseases cystic fibrosis (CF) and bronchiectasis. NO levels in a single exhalation were measured using a chemiluminescence analy- ser. Thirty-six patients with CF and 16 with bronchiectasis were studied and compa- red with 22 normal subjects and 35… CONTINUE READING
