effectiveness of basic therapy for atopic asthma in children. Material and Methods. A 24-week, prospective, comparative, randomized, open-label study in parallel groups was performed. There were included 70 children with uncontrolled atopic asthma with high FeNO (FeNO>50ppb). There were evaluated the comparative efficacy of selection of basic therapy by using monthly monitoring of FeNO and criteria of asthma control in accordance with the recommendations of GINA (2011). Results. The cost / effective ratio (CER) for achievement of one permanent 12 week-control after 24 weeks of therapy in group of monitoring FeNO was 11433,26 rubles, which was 40% lower, than the CER in the comparison group (18382,99 rubles). Conclusion. The using of FeNO monitoring for a personalized correction of basic therapy in children with uncontrolled atopic asthma can reduce the cost of treatment and is also economically viable.
