Birth of baby girl may mean worsening of asthma among pregnant womenPregnant women carrying a girl child and suffering from asthma are at an increased risk of experiencing worsening asthma symptoms than pregnant women carrying a boy child, as per a study presented at the American Thoracic Society International Conference in Orlando on May 25.

Lead researcher Peter G. Gibson, M.D., said that while the reason behind this difference is still unknown, it may be because the female fetus can produce a substance in response to asthmatic mother’s airway inflammation leading to worsening of asthma.

Dr. Gibson, Professor in the Department of Respiratory and Sleep Medicine at Hunter Medical Research Institute at John Hunter Hospital in Newcastle, Australia, remarked that the good news is that asthma among pregnant women can be controlled with asthma treatment.

Monitoring Nitric Oxide not useful for many asthmatic childrenThe level of nitric oxide in the exhaled breath of an asthmatic patient can portend worsening of asthma symptoms. Furthermore, it can even signify an imminent attack linked to underlying airway inflammation.

These reasons have made the monitoring of nitric oxide levels, especially in children, of considerable interest and as a potential breakthrough for helping clinicians to formulate medications and enhance the results of treatment methodologies.

Johan C. de Jongste, M.D., Ph.D., at the Erasmus University Medical Center-Sophia Children’s Hospital in the Netherlands, and colleagues, remarked that there is a good reason to study about these potential applications in the near future.

Most asthmatic children do not benefit from Nitric oxide monitoringThe level of nitric oxide in the exhaled breath of a patient suffering from asthma can portent worsening of asthma symptoms, according to results reported in the second issue for January of the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine, a publication of the American Thoracic Society.

The study also revealed that such a complicated situation may highlight an imminent attack, which can get linked with inflammation concerning underlying airway.

It is considered that findings of this study have made the monitoring of nitric oxide of significant interest, especially in children, by evaluating it as a potential way for providing help to clinicians for improving treatment results.
