Detailed Description:

Patients with asthma and not treated with anti-inflammatory medications were studied. This was a parallel, randomized, placebo-controlled study to investigate the effects of Asmanex on markers of airway inflammation including exhaled nitric oxide, airway reactivity, FEV1 and nitrates/nitrites and pH in exhaled breath condensate.
