Objective: Common comorbid medical conditions including allergic rhinitis (AR), obesity, and sleep disordered breathing (SDB) have been linked with asthma exacerbations; however, these conditions also impact sleep and academic functioning. The current study sought to examine unique and combined associations of these common comorbidities on sleep and academic performance among urban minority children with persistent asthma. We expected additional comorbid diagnoses would be associated with poorer sleep and academic functioning...

Asthma is a common pulmonary disorder characterizerized by airway inflammation, airway- hyper reactivity, and reversible airflow obstruction. The classic triad of symptoms is wheezing, chronic episodic dyspnea and chronic cough. The prevalence of asthma increased steadily over the latter part of the last century, first in the developed and then in the developing world. The number of people with asthma in the world may be as high as 334 million. Asthma in Bangladesh appears to be a substantial public health problem: an estimated 11...

Little is known of the effects of nanoparticles in human systems, let alone in diseased individuals and nanotechnology has preceded nanotoxicology. Therefore, the effects of titanium dioxide (TiO2) nanoparticles in peripheral blood lymphocytes from patients with respiratory diseases [lung cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and asthma] were compared with those in healthy Individuals, to determine differences in sensitivity to nanochemical insult. The Comet assay was performed according to recommended guidelines...

Objective Out-of-pocket costs strongly affect patient adherence with medicines. For asthma, guidelines recommend that most patients should be prescribed regular low-dose inhaled corticosteroids (ICS) alone, but in Australia most are prescribed combination ICS-long-acting β2-agonists (LABA), which cost more to patients and government. The present qualitative study among general practitioners (GPs) explored the acceptability, and likely effect on prescribing, of lower patient copayments for ICS alone. Methods Semistructured telephone interviews were conducted with 15 GPs from the greater Sydney area; the interviews were transcribed and thematically analysed...

BACKGROUND: The quality of asthma primary care may vary between countries, health care practices, and health care professionals (HCPs). Identifying and explaining such differences is critical for health services improvement. OBJECTIVES: To examine the quality of asthma primary care in France and United Kingdom, and identify within-country and between-country predictors amenable to intervention. METHODS: An online questionnaire to capture asthma medical care and self-management support, practice characteristics, and psychosocial determinants, was completed by 276 HCPs...

Purpose: Grouping COPD subjects into clinical phenotypes might be useful for the management of the disease, but the clinical implications of such classification are still not totally clear, especially regarding prognosis. The primary objective of this study was to assess whether the mortality rates were different between four predefined clinical phenotypes. Patients and methods: This is a retrospective, observational study carried out at the COPD clinic of a University Hospital...

Introduction: There is a growing clinical awareness about the influence of gut-lung axis on lung injury and coexisting manifestations of disease processes in both the intestine and lungs. Patients of chronic lung diseases such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and asthma very often present with coexistent gut symptoms. In the present study, we have tried to establish the correlation of severity of pulmonary pathology of COPD and asthma patients with functional gastrointestinal (GI) symptoms of the patients...

REVIEW
Anirban Maitra
A small but significant subset of asthmatic children show a lack of response to standard management, resulting in further intensification of therapy to optimise symptom control and may remain symptomatic despite maximal therapy. Severe asthma results in increased risk of adverse outcomes whilst contributing significantly to the economic burden on the nation's health resources. The ERS / ATS guidelines were published in 2014 and form the basis of identifying, evaluating and managing severe asthmatic children...

We aimed to determine whether the outpatient management of ED patients with asthma adheres to Australia's Asthma Consensus Guidelines. Adult patients, under treatment for asthma, were administered a validated questionnaire. Data on their outpatient management were collected and analysed descriptively. Of 51 patients, 14 smoked and 35 did not undergo regular GP review. Twenty-one patients had a good understanding of a written asthma action plan although only 15 owned one. Fourteen patients used no preventer medication...

BACKGROUND: Low levels of asthma control are reported in many countries worldwide. Improved knowledge of asthma control in the Middle East and Africa and predictive factors is needed to address this major public healthcare burden. OBJECTIVE: To assess the level of asthma control in patients attending a routine consultation for asthma in the Middle East and North Africa, and the relationship between level of control and patient and disease characteristics, adherence, and quality of life (QoL)...

BACKGROUND: Asthma severity can be affected by microbial exposures. However, less is known about the specific indoor agents aggravating the disease in children. We examined the associations between indoor endotoxin and beta-(1 → 3)-D-glucan exposures and asthma severity in children with asthma. METHODS: A clinical cross-sectional study of schoolchildren (aged 7-17 years) was conducted in the province of Saskatchewan, Canada. Children with asthma (n = 116) were identified from 335 participants using a combination of survey responses and objective clinical assessments...

Obesity can affect the pharmacokinetics of most drugs, which may result in under- or overdosing if traditional pediatric dosing strategies are used. To investigate currently applied dosage strategies in children with overweight or obesity (overweight/obesity), in a clinical treatment facility. In particular, whether dosing guidelines were available and metrics of body size applied. A retrospective cohort study of 200 patients admitted to the Danish Children's Obesity Clinic. Data were collected from 2007 to 2015...

BACKGROUND: Ischemic heart disease (IHD) and chronic airway disease (COPD and Asthma) are major epidemics accounting for significant mortality and morbidity. The combination presents many diagnostic challenges. Clinical symptoms and signs frequently overlap. There is a need for airway evaluation in these patients to plan appropriate management. METHODS: Consecutive stable IHD patients attending the cardiology OPD in a tertiary care centre were interviewed for collecting basic demographic information, brief medical, occupational, personal history and risk factors for coronary artery disease and airway disease, modified medical research centre (MMRC) grade for dyspnea, quality of life-St...

Background: To date, few studies have focused on the clinical and allergic characteristics of asthma in the elderly, defined as asthma in people aged 60 or over. Thus, we propose to identify and study the clinical and allergic characteristics and comorbidities of patients with asthma among the elderly. Methods: A retrospective, observational, descriptive study was developed in five clinics and hospitals in Argentina. Allergy Physicians analyzed their patients' medical records in 2014 and included those adults over the age of 60, who had been diagnosed with asthma according to the GINA guidelines...

Background: Guidelines of the Global Initiative for Asthma recommend the use of peak expiratory flow (PEF) in the assessment and management of patients with asthma. However, normal PEF values for Chinese children have not been thoroughly investigated. Methods: This was a cross-sectional study of 3,169 healthy children aged 5-14 years from research centers in five cities of China: Guangzhou, Suzhou, Chengdu, Xi'an, and Beijing. We established pediatric reference values for PEF using a mini peak flow meter...
