BACKGROUND The measurement of hydrogen peroxide (H(2)O(2)) in exhaled breath condensate (EBC) has been proposed as a noninvasive way of monitoring airway inflammation. However, results from individual studies on EBC H(2)O(2) evaluation of asthma are conflicting. The purpose of this study was to explore whether EBC H(2)O(2) is elevated in people with asthma… CONTINUE READING
