Many studies have documented a link between overweight and asthma in children with contradictory results regarding the best way to measure overweight. Moreover, often, the dynamic development of atopy, overweight, and asthma is controlled for age dependency insufficiently.

Antigen specific IgE binds the Fcε receptor I (FcεRI) expressed on several types of immune cells, including dendritic cells (DC). Activation of FcεRI on DCs in atopics has been shown to modulate im...
This study shows that patients with severe asthma, previously considered non-atopic, may be sensitized to less frequently tested allergens, specifically S. aureus enterotoxins. The diagnosis of an ato...
Over a fifth of children and adolescents suffer with asthma or atopic disease. It is unclear whether asthma impacts academic performance in children and adolescents, and little is known about the asso...
The "atopic march" has been considered a linear progression starting with eczema and culminating with development of asthma. Not all asthma cases, however, are preceded by eczema, and not all children...
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 a...
The intrinsic asthma (atopic or not) is a particular phenotype marked by an early later symptoms, increased severity, sensitivity associated with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAI...
The Early Prevention of Asthma in Atopic Children (EPAAC™) . 24 months study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of levocetirizine (LCTZ) in preventing the onset of asthma in 12 to 24 mo...
Prevention of Asthma With Levocetirizine (36 Month Treatment) in Young Children Suffering From Eczema (Atopic Dermatitis) and Sensitized to Grass Pollen and House Dust Mite and Having Completed the Previous EPAAC Trial (NCT00152464)
Prolongation of the EPAAC™ trial - NCT00152464 (The Early Prevention of Asthma in Atopic Children). 36 months study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of levocetirizine (LCTZ) in preve...
Atopic dermatitis(AD) is one of manifestation in atopic march. The prevalence of AD is increased. In 1998, the investigators found the prevalence of AD about 15 % in Thailand. AD is diagno...
A status with BODY WEIGHT that is above certain standard of acceptable or desirable weight. In the scale of BODY MASS INDEX, overweight is defined as having a BMI of 25.0-29.9 kg/m2. Overweight may or may not be due to increases in body fat (ADIPOSE TISSUE), hence overweight does not equal "over fat".
A STEROID with GLUCOCORTICOID RECEPTOR activity that is used to manage the symptoms of ASTHMA; ALLERGIC RHINITIS, and ATOPIC DERMATITIS.
Antigens from the house dust mites (DERMATOPHAGOIDES), mainly D. farinae and D. pteronyssinus. They are proteins, found in mite feces or mite extracts, that can cause ASTHMA and other allergic diseases such as perennial rhinitis (RHINITIS, ALLERGIC, PERENNIAL) and atopic dermatitis (DERMATITIS, ATOPIC). More than 11 groups of Dermatophagoides ALLERGENS have been defined. Group I allergens, such as Der f I and Der p I from the above two species, are among the strongest mite immunogens in humans.
A type of analysis in which subjects in a study group and a comparison group are made comparable with respect to extraneous factors by individually pairing study subjects with the comparison group subjects (e.g., age-matched controls).
A chronic inflammatory genetically determined disease of the skin marked by increased ability to form reagin (IgE), with increased susceptibility to allergic rhinitis and asthma, and hereditary disposition to a lowered threshold for pruritus. It is manifested by lichenification, excoriation, and crusting, mainly on the flexural surfaces of the elbow and knee. In infants it is known as infantile eczema.
Obesity is the condition in which excess fat has accumulated in the body (mostly in subcutaneous tissues). clinical obesity is considered to be present when a person has a BMI of over 30 (Oxford Dictionary of Medicine). It is becoming increasing common i...
Asthma is caused by inflammation of small tubes, called bronchi, which carry air in and out of the lungs. If you have asthma, the bronchi will be inflamed and more sensitive than normal. When you come into contact with something that irritates your...
The term allergy is used to describe a response, within the body, to a substance, which is not necessarily harmful in itself, but results in an immune response and a reaction that causes symptoms and disease in a predisposed person, which in turn can cau...
