Asthmatic children do not get benefited with Nitric OxideThe level of nitric oxide (NO) in the exhaled breath of an asthmatic individual may portend worsening of asthma symptoms besides signifying an imminent attack linked to underlying airway inflammation.

The results were reported in the second issue for January of the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine, a publication of the American Thoracic Society.

Johan C. de Jongste, M.D., Ph.D., at the Erasmus University Medical Center-Sophia Children’s Hospital in the Netherlands, and colleagues randomized 151 children from 15 academic centers and hospitals with mild to moderate asthma during a 30-week monitoring course.

Nitric oxide monitoring of no use for most asthmatic childrenAccording to a multi-center prospective study, calibrating medications based on daily monitoring of the fractional exhaled nitric oxide (FENO) and symptoms in asthmatic children displayed no considerable improvements over medicating based on daily symptom monitoring alone.

The result was reported in an issue of the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine, which is a publication of the American Thoracic Society.

The randomized study involving 151 children from 15 academic centers and hospitals with mild to moderate asthma to a 30-week monitoring course and was led by Johan C. de Jongste, M.D., Ph.D., at the Erasmus University Medical Center-Sophia Children’s Hospital in the Netherlands, and colleagues.

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.
