The findings in asthmatic subjects are not too dissimilar from those found in normal subjects.  However, there are a few studies— where some change in bronchial responsiveness did occur with exposures between around 250 and 500 ppb for durations ranging between 30 minutes and three hours. More recently, nitrogen dioxide exposure at a level of 400 ppb has been shown to enhance the subsequent response to allergen challenge, suggesting that NO on its own probably has  very limited effect, even in patients with asthma, when acting directly, but may act as a priming agent to other co-exposures such as allergen challenge, with sensitized subjects showing an enhanced (; 5%) bronchoconstrictor response to allergen challenge following NO compared to air.
