In a previous study, we have shown that the level of exhaled nitric oxide (NO) (ENO) represents a sensitive and promptly modifiable marker to monitor antigen exposure in mite-sensitized asthmatic children. This study aimed to determine whether the actual level of exposure to house-dust-mite (HDM) antigen can influence the magnitude of ENO reduction after antigen avoidance in a group of allergic asthmatic children.

Exhaled NO reduced on allergen avoidance.

Abstract

In a previous study, we have shown that the level of exhaled nitric oxide (NO) (ENO) represents a sensitive and promptly modifiable marker to monitor antigen exposure in mite-sensitized asthmatic children. This study aimed to determine whether the actual level of exposure to house-dust-mite (HDM) antigen can influence the magnitude of ENO reduction after antigen avoidance in a group of allergic asthmatic children.
