Inflammatory Markers and Acid-Base Equilibrium in Exhaled Breath Condensate of Stable and Unstable Asthma Patients
International Archives of Allergy and Immunology, 05/30/2012TomasiakLozowska MM et al. –
In asthmatic patients there is a relationship between exhaled breath condensate (EBC) pH, ammonia and nitrite/nitrate concentrations and other recognized markers of airway inflammation. EBC pH values, ammonia and nitrite/nitrate levels measured together may help to assess airway inflammatory status and asthma severity.
