Exhaled nitric oxide levels are elevated in asthmatic children and decrease after inhaled steroid treatment. We evaluated the time-dependent changes in fractional exhaled nitric oxide concentration (FENO) and pulmonary function parameters following inhaled steroid therapy. Thirty-nine steroid-naive atopic patients (age 11.92+/-0.48 years) with mild… CONTINUE READING
