Cohort Study of the Patterns of Microvesicles in the Serum of Participants With Atopic and Non-atopic Asthma

2014-08-27 03:29:48 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to determine if a simple blood test can help in disease management, particularly asthma. This will be researched by looking at certain features of the blood and to compare asthmatics without allergies to those that have allergy-induced asthma.

Description

A total of 20 participants (men or women) between the ages of 18-50 years with asthma will be enrolled. Participants will remain on their usual asthma treatments as prescribed by their usual asthma care provider. Current asthma treatments and any changes will be recorded at baseline and each subsequent visit. The primary outcome measures are correlation of microvesicle patterns with atopic state and variation from baseline with episodes of poor asthma control. Secondary outcomes include correlations between microvesicle patterns and spirometry, eNO levels, and glucorcorticoid sensitivity.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Asthma attacks following a period of exercise. Usually the induced attack is short-lived and regresses spontaneously. The magnitude of postexertional airway obstruction is strongly influenced by the environment in which exercise is performed (i.e. inhalation of cold air during physical exertion markedly augments the severity of the airway obstruction; conversely, warm humid air blunts or abolishes it).

Drugs that are used to treat asthma.

A beta-adrenergic agonist used in the treatment of asthma and bronchospasms.

An adrenergic beta-agonist used as a bronchodilator agent in asthma therapy.

Adrenergic beta-2 agonist used as bronchodilator for emphysema, bronchitis and asthma.
