The lungs of asthmatic patients are exposed to oxidative stress due to the generation of reactive oxygen and nitrogen species as a consequence of chronic airway inflammation. Increased concentrations of NO*, H2O2 and 8-isoprostane have been measured in exhaled breath and induced sputum of asthmatic patients. O2*-, NO*, and halides interact to form highly… CONTINUE READING
