Exhaled nitric oxide is related to atopy, but not asthma in adolescents with bronchiolitis in infancy
(BioMed Central, 2013-11-17)
Background: The fraction of exhaled nitric oxide (FeNO) has been suggested as a non-invasive marker of eosinophilic inflammation in asthma, but lately rather as a biomarker of atopy than of asthma itself. Asthma after ...
Peak oxygen uptake and breathing pattern in COPD patients – a four-year longitudinal study
(BioMed Central, 2015-08-19)
Background: Activities of daily living in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are limited by exertional dyspnea and reduced exercise capacity. The aims of the study were to examine longitudinal ...
Nitric oxide synthase polymorphisms, gene expression and lung function in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease
(BioMed Central, 2013-11-06)
Background: Due to the pleiotropic effects of nitric oxide (NO) within the lungs, it is likely that NO is a significant factor in the pathogenesis of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The aim of this study was ...
The associations between weight-related anthropometrics during childhood and lung function in late childhood: a retrospective cohort study
(BioMed Central, 2018-01-19)
Background: An association between body weight in childhood and subsequent lung function and asthma has been suggested, but few longitudinal studies exist. Our aim was to explore whether weight-related anthropometric ...
