BACKGROUND Nowadays it is possible to assess airway inflammation by measuring the fractional concentration of exhaled nitric oxide (FeNO) during an office visit and there is international consensus on the testing methodology. The aim of this study was to evaluate whether FeNO measurement may be a predictor of bronchial hyperreactivity (BHR) in patients with allergic rhinitis (AR). METHODS Two hundred eleven patients (196 males, median age 28.5 years) suffering from persistent AR were… CONTINUE READING
