It is now recognized that anti-inflammatory agents, 22 Hopp and Townley such as inhaled CSs or leukotriene antagonist or phosphodiesterase inhibitors, can lower the level of NO in the exhaled air. In a study by Covar (40), the normal control children had levels of exhaled NO of approx 10–15 ppb, whereas in the patient with asthma it was approx 60 ppb in the placebo-treated group and approx 25 ppb in patients with asthma after budesonide treatment.
