Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Although the differential diagnosis of asthma is simple in most cases, there are cases causing difficulties. Beside as an aid in diagnosis, there is a growing need for new tests to monitor airway inflammation to optimize and monitor the effect of treatment. Following the traditional methods used in everyday clinical practice a new method, the measurement of exhaled nitric oxide was introduced in the past decade. With this method, completely new information can be obtained about asthma supplementing other results in diagnosis making and disease monitoring. It is also expected to become the part of clinical practice in the next few years. The concentration of exhaled nitric oxide is elevated in asthmatic patients and its elevation is positively related to the degree of eosinophilic airway inflammation and symptoms. This measurement is approved in the European Union and in the USA for clinical use to monitor the effectiveness of anti-inflammatory treatment in asthma.
