BACKGROUND: Exhaled nitric oxide (ENO) has been shown to be a noninvasive marker of eosinophilic inflammation in asthmatic children. Few studies have evaluated the relationship between ENO levels and the clinical features of children with asthma. The aim of this study was to examine children attending a routine asthma clinic and evaluate the relationship between ENO levels and clinical more...

2. Nitric oxide, enhanced by macrophage-colony stimulating factor, mediates renal damage in reflux nephropathy
BACKGROUND: Reflux nephropathy (RN) is a major cause of end-stage renal failure in children and young adults. Nitric oxide (NO) is an important mediator of tissue injury and inflammation. NO production is enhanced by hematopoietic growth factor including macrophage colony stimulating factor (M-CSF). M-CSF plays a pivotal role in the development of nephritis via macrophage activation. more...
