Characteristics of asthma and COPD overlap syndrome (ACOS) in the Canadian population.

Summary of "Characteristics of asthma and COPD overlap syndrome (ACOS) in the Canadian population."

Asthma is a chronic disease affecting both children and adults, whereas chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a respiratory disease most commonly related to smoking and is usually seen in adults. When the airway disease shares features of both asthma and COPD, the phenotype is referred to as asthma and COPD overlap syndrome (ACOS). The objective of this cross-sectional study is to characterize ACOS in the Canadian population.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Differences in measurable biological values, characteristics, or traits, among individuals of a population or between population groups.

Rare congenital disorder with multiple anomalies including: characteristic dysmorphic craniofacial features, musculoskeletal abnormalities, neurocognitive delay, and high prevalence of cancer. Germline mutations in H-Ras protein can cause Costello syndrome. Costello syndrome shows early phenotypic overlap with other disorders that involve MAP KINASE SIGNALING SYSTEM (e.g., NOONAN SYNDROME and cardiofaciocutaneous syndrome).

A malocclusion in which maxillary incisor and canine teeth project over the mandiblar teeth excessively. The overlap is measured perpendicular to the occlusal plane and is also called vertical overlap. When the overlap is measured parallel to the occlusal plane it is referred to as overjet.

Ongoing scrutiny of a population (general population, study population, target population, etc.), generally using methods distinguished by their practicability, uniformity, and frequently their rapidity, rather than by complete accuracy.

An autosomal dominant disorder with an acronym of its seven features (LENTIGO; ELECTROCARDIOGRAM abnormalities; ocular HYPERTELORISM; PULMONARY STENOSIS; abnormal genitalia; retardation of growth; and DEAFNESS or SENSORINEURAL HEARING LOSS). This syndrome is caused by mutations of PTPN11 gene encoding the non-receptor PROTEIN TYROSINE PHOSPHATASE, type 11, and is an allelic to NOONAN SYNDROME. Features of LEOPARD syndrome overlap with those of NEUROFIBROMATOSIS 1 which is caused by mutations in the NEUROFIBROMATOSIS 1 GENES.
