CONCLUSIONS: Children aged 7-10 years can successfully perform FeNO measurements using a portable, electrochemical FeNO analyzer. Measurements from the 6 and 10-s exhalations were repeatable and consistent with a high degree of agreement between one another. Thus, in young children successful FeNO measurements can be obtained in either the 6-s or 10-s mode, providing physicians valuable information on airway inflammation to aid in the diagnosis and treatment of asthma.

Conclusions: An increased prevalence of BHR and BA was detected in CVID patients compared to the general population. BA may develop despite the disturbed immunoglobulin production, and the majority of patients display nonatopic and noneosinophilic properties. These results suggest a limited role of atopy and eosinophilic inflammation in the pathogenesis of BA in CVID patients.Int Arch Allergy Immunol
