Association of indoor air pollution with rhinitis symptoms, atopy and nitric oxide levels in exhaled air

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review

Exposure to particulate matter (PM) outdoors can induce airway inflammation and exacerbation of asthma in adults. However, there is limited knowledge about the effects of exposure to indoor PM. The aim of this study was to investigate the association of exposure to indoor sources of PM with rhinitis symptoms, atopy and nitric oxide in exhaled air (FeNO) as a measure of airway inflammation.
