US Expert Panel Recommends the Use of Fractional Exhaled Nitric Oxide (FENO) in the Diagnosis and Management of Asthma
Date:1/13/2010

SOLNA, Sweden, Jan. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Aerocrine AB (OMX Nordic Exchange: AERO) today announced that a group of prominent clinicians and researchers, all leaders in the field of asthma in the US, has issued a consensus paper recommending that inflammation monitoring using exhaled nitric oxide should be part of the routine clinical management of asthma in conjunction with other conventional methods. The points of clinical consensus were arrived at during a closed meeting held at National Jewish Health in Denver, Colorado.

The panel recommends that FENO should be used to determine the presence or absence of eosinophilic airway inflammation, to determine the likelihood of steroid responsiveness, to measure response to steroid therapy and level of inflammation control. In addition, the expert panel concludes that FENO is a useful tool to monitor patient ICS treatment adherence and allergen exposure. Traditional tools used by the clinician do not identify or measure inflammation, the underlying cause of asthma symptoms; hence the FENO value can provide additional valuable information not otherwise apparent to either physician or patient.

The panel also notes that private payer resistance is still common, and some insurance carriers continue to refuse reimbursement for FENO testing on the grounds that it is investigational, experimental or unproven. However, the consensus panel disagrees with this stand, and believes that the data support the use of FENO in asthma management in conjunction with conventional tools.

"FENO gives the clinician insight into the status of airway inflammation that is not obtainable via the history, physical examination and lung function tests commonly considered 'the standard' of assessment," said Peter Boggs, M.D., Allergist at The Asthma
