NIOX VERO was unveiled at the European Respiratory Society (ERS) 2017 International Congress in Milan, Italy where Circassia also highlighted the use of nitric oxide as a biomarker in the diagnosis and management of respiratory diseases.
Data from a recently completed study comparing PCD subjects with healthy subjects was also presented to demonstrate the test's ability to differentiate between the two groups
Steve Harris, Circassia's chief executive, said: “This life-long condition can lead to permanent lung damage and early diagnosis and treatment is important.
“However, diagnosis can be difficult currently, and we look forward to helping physicians improve the process for patients with this challenging condition."
PCD sufferers need to cough regularly to clear the build-up of mucus in their lungs.
