BACKGROUND: Neutrophilic inflammation is common in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease while Asthma COPD overlap syndrome has eosinophilic predominance. Identifying the type of inflammation will aid in better management of COPD, but published studies show that induced sputum examination is more frequently used in asthma than COPD, with safety being the limiting factor. We aimed to determine the success and safety of sputum induction (SI) in COPD patients. METHODS: 116 stable COPD patients underwent SI...

The term asthma-COPD overlap (ACO) has been suggested for people with chronic airflow obstruction that has features characteristic of both asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).(1) People with clinical features of asthma and COPD tend to have worse outcomes than those with either asthma or COPD alone, yet their clinical management has remained unclear. UK guidelines currently do not specifically address this issue,(2,3) but the Global Initiative for Asthma (GINA) and the Global Initiative for Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease (GOLD) have published a consensus-based report on the diagnosis and treatment of people with asthma, COPD and ACO...

Objective Although asthma and COPD have been regarded as distinct conditions, emerging literature suggests that overlapping phenotypes exists, asthma-COPD overlap (ACO). The aim of this study was to describe prevalence, patient characteristics and morbidity of ACO. Methods From a cross-sectional population sample, the West Sweden Asthma Study, subjects with suspected asthma, chronic bronchitis or COPD, and a random sample, were invited to clinical examinations. ACO was defined as doctors diagnosed asthma, or clear clinical signs of asthma at examination, with a FEV1/FVC<0...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: A new phenotype with overlapping characteristics between asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) called asthma-COPD overlap syndrome (ACOS) is emerging among inflammation diseases. To date, there is no agreement on specific criteria to define this syndrome, and the current guidelines are insufficient to classify the analogy and differences between overlap and COPD or asthma phenotypes. It would be necessary to identify new biomarkers able to identify these diseases clearly...

Asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) are the most common respiratory disorders worldwide. Given demographic and environmental changes, prevalence for each is likely to increase. Although exact numbers are not known, based on chance alone, many people will be affected by both lower airways obstruction and concomitant upper airway obstruction during sleep. Some recent studies suggest that there is a reciprocal interaction, with chronic lung disease predisposing to OSA, and OSA worsening control and outcomes from chronic lung disease...

BACKGROUND: Asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) overlap syndrome (ACOS) is an increasingly recognized phenotype. Few randomized clinical trials have been conducted in patients with ACOS; therefore, scientific evidence concerning ACOS is scarce and a therapeutic approach remains unclear. The aim of this study was to evaluate current treatment trends for patients with ACOS, identified as those with a dual definition of asthma and COPD, in a real-world COPD cohort. METHODS: Data were analyzed from patients with asthma and COPD in the USA, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and the UK who participated in the 2012 and 2013 Adelphi Respiratory Disease Specific Programmes (DSPs)...

Asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) both cause airway obstruction and are associated with chronic inflammation of the airways. However, the nature and sites of the inflammation differ between these diseases, resulting in different pathology, clinical manifestations and response to therapy. In this review, the inflammatory and cellular mechanisms of asthma and COPD are compared and the differences in inflammatory cells and profile of inflammatory mediators are highlighted. These differences account for the differences in clinical manifestations of asthma and COPD and their response to therapy...

BACKGROUND: Asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are heterogeneous diseases. The phenotypes that have clinical features of both asthma and COPD are still incompletely understood. OBJECTIVE: To clarify the best discriminators of the asthma-COPD overlap phenotype from asthma and COPD subgroups using a clustering approach. METHODS: This study assessed pathophysiological parameters, including mRNA expression levels of T helper cell-related transcription factors, namely, TBX21 (Th1), GATA3 (Th2), RORC (Th17), and FOXP3 (Treg), in peripheral blood mononuclear cells in asthma patients (n = 152) and in COPD patients (n = 50)...

Asthma and COPD are highly prevalent chronic obstructive lung diseases with an associated high burden of disease. Asthma, which is often allergic in origin, frequently begins in infancy or childhood with variable airflow obstruction and intermittent wheezing, cough, and dyspnea. Patients with COPD, in contrast, are usually current or former smokers who present after the age of 40 years with symptoms (often persistent), including dyspnea and a productive cough. Based on age and smoking history, it is often easy to distinguish between asthma and COPD...

Asthma and chronic obstructive airways disease (COPD) are prevalent chronic inflammatory airway diseases that are responsible for a large global disease burden. Both diseases are complex and heterogeneous, and are increasingly recognized as overlapping syndromes that may share similar pathophysiologic mechanisms and treatable traits. Eosinophilic airway inflammation is considered the most influential treatable trait of chronic airway disease, and over the last decade several monoclonal antibodies and small molecule therapies have been developed to target this trait...

Asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are common chronic respiratory diseases. Both diseases have incompletely distinct pathophysiology, clinical manifestation, and treatment responsiveness. Pulmonary and systemic inflammations are the hallmarks of COPD. Most asthma responds to inhaled corticosteroid (ICS) treatment. In contrast, COPD is a corticosteroid-resistant disease. Bronchodilators are a preferred treatment method of COPD, with the aim of improving symptoms and preventing exacerbation...

The key pathophysiological feature of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is an abnormal inflammatory bronchial reaction after inhalation of toxic substances. The priority is the avoidance of such toxic inhalations, but the use of anti-inflammatory drugs also seems appropriate, especially corticosteroids that are the sole anti-inflammatory drug available for this purpose in France. The risks associated with the prolonged use of these parenteral drugs are well known. Inhalation is therefore the optimal route, but inhaled drugs may also lead to adverse consequences...

Following a proposal by the Spanish Society of Pulmonology and Thoracic Surgery (SEPAR), sponsor of the Spanish COPD Guidelines (GesEPOC) and the Spanish Guidelines on the Management of Asthma (GEMA), authors of both papers have unified the criteria for the diagnosis of asthma-COPD overlap syndrome (ACOS). This consensus defines ACOS as the presence in a given patient of three elements: significant smoking exposure, chronic airflow limitation and asthma. Diagnosis is confirmed when a patient (35years of age or older), smoker or ex-smoker of more than 10 pack-years, presents airflow limitation (post-bronchodilator FEV1/FVC<0...

Approximately 15-20% of patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) also display characteristics of asthma. In May 2014, the asthma-COPD overlap syndrome (ACOS) was briefly addressed in the Global Initiative for Asthma (GINA) and Global Initiative for Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease (GOLD) strategy documents. We evaluated how pulmonologists diagnose and treat ACOS and how they assess its control. Pulmonologists from two university healthcare centers, having ≥ 1 year experience, treating patients with asthma, COPD, or ACOS, were invited to participate in focus groups...
