Asthma PubMed articles on BioPortfolio. Our PubMed references draw on over 21 million records from the medical literature. Here you can see the latest Asthma articles that have been published worldwide.
We have published hundreds of Asthma news stories on BioPortfolio along with dozens of Asthma Clinical Trials and PubMed Articles about Asthma for you to read. In addition to the medical data, news and clinical trials, BioPortfolio also has a large collection of Asthma Companies in our database. You can also find out about relevant Asthma Drugs and Medications on this site too.
Menopausal asthma is considered a distinct asthma phenotype. Our aim was to identify potential specific features of asthma in postmenopausal women in a cohort of Polish females.
Asthma is one of the most common chronic diseases of childhood. For children with persistent asthma, asthma control is largely related to controller medication adherence. With increasing calls for children to be involved in their own asthma management, there is a gap in our knowledge about the executive functioning of children with asthma.
To assess the impact of occupational exposure to irritants or sensitizers on the occurrence, recrudescence and worsening of asthma and to identify unrecognized cases of work related asthma (WRA) including Work-Exacerbated Asthma (WEA) and Occupational Asthma (OA), in a general asthma clinic population sample.
Many asthmatic women of childbearing age experience cyclical aggravation of asthmatic symptoms during the perimenstrual period, or perimenstrual asthma (PMA). PMA is considered to be a difficult-to-treat asthma phenotype; conventional asthma therapies are not always effective against PMA.
Asthma often debuts in early life (1). During childhood, the prevalence of asthma is higher in boys, but prevalence is higher in girls after puberty (2). The goal of asthma treatment is to achieve and maintain asthma control as well as reduce future risks of exacerbations (3). This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.
Interleukin 13 (IL-13) plays a critical pro-inflammatory role in asthma. Several single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) are associated with asthma susceptibility in specific populations; however, further replicative studies in other ethnic groups are mandatory.
A "frequent exacerbator phenotype" has been described, mostly in the population of patients with severe asthma. Further data are needed on such exacerbation-prone patients in milder asthma.
Asthma morbidity is high among low-income children living in rural U.S. regions, yet few interventions have been designed to reduce asthma burden among rural populations.
Asthma inflicts a significant health and economic burden in the United States. Self-management approaches to monitoring and treatment can be burdensome for patients.
Bronchial asthma and obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) are common respiratory disorders that can co-exist. The strength of this association, and also the impact of OSA on asthma-related clinical outcomes remain unclear.
Asthma often begins early in childhood. However, the risk for persistence is challenging to evaluate.
Asthma is a common disease in children. Home-based, multi-trigger, multi-component interventions with an environmental focus have been shown to be effective to address asthma in children. The objective of this study was to assess the outcomes and feasibility of implementing a specific asthma home visiting (HV) program in a rural area.
Asthma is a chronic airway disease that affects more than 300 million people worldwide. Current treatment focuses on symptomatic relief by temporally dampening inflammation and relaxing the airway. Novel combative strategies against asthma and hopefully a cure are yet to be developed. The goal of this review is to summarize recent literature on neurotrophins (NTs) in experimental models and clinical settings of asthma research.
Pneumococcal vaccination is recommended for all adults with asthma and a Healthy People 2020 goal aims to achieve 60% coverage among high-risk adults, including those with asthma. Adults with work-related asthma have more severe asthma symptoms than those with non-work-related asthma and are particularly vulnerable to pneumococcal pneumonia.
Asthma is often suboptimally controlled, in part due to patients' disease knowledge. Understanding patients' knowledge, prior to education may help in individualizing content. However, there are no well validated or internationally relevant patient asthma knowledge questionnaires available.
Swedish asthma guidelines recommend treating asthma with the lowest effective dose possible. These recommendations are both hard to follow and seldom considered enough in asthma care today. As an example, combination therapy with inhaled corticosteroids (ICS) and long acting beta agonists (LABA) should only be considered if asthma control is not achieved with low to medium dose ICS daily. However, the Swedish National Board of Health and Welfare estimates that 120 000 asthma patients are overmedicated with ...
Children with asthma-like symptoms may not clinically wheeze. The objectives of this study were to evaluate if children, without physician-documented wheeze, wheeze during bronchial-challenge-testing (BCT), and if measurements of O2Sat and respiratory rate during BCT improve the BCT sensitivity?
We examined common variation in asthma risk by conducting a meta-analysis of worldwide asthma genome-wide association studies (23,948 asthma cases, 118,538 controls) of individuals from ethnically diverse populations. We identified five new asthma loci, found two new associations at two known asthma loci, established asthma associations at two loci previously implicated in the comorbidity of asthma plus hay fever, and confirmed nine known loci. Investigation of pleiotropy showed large overlaps in genetic va...
Although Asthma-COPD Overlap (ACO) has been described among populations of subjects with COPD or asthma, ACO has never been described among a population of subjects with occupational asthma (OA).
Despite significant advances in understanding the pathophysiology and management of asthma, some of systemic effects of asthma are still not well defined.
Asthma is a disease of chronic airway inflammation with heterogeneous features. Neutrophilic asthma is corticosteroid-insensitive asthma related to absence or suppression of TH2 process and increased TH1 and/or TH17 process. Macrolides are immunomodulatory drug that reduce airway inflammation, but their role in asthma is not fully known. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the role of macrolides in neutrophilic asthma and compare their effects with those of corticosteroids.
Asthma disproportionately affects minority groups, low income populations, and young children under 5. Head Start (HS) programs predominantly serve this high-risk population, yet staff are not trained on asthma management. The objective of this study was to assess a 5-year, multicomponent HS staff asthma education program in Baltimore City HS programs.
Asthma in paediatric populations is one of the highest public health concerns. In this study of children and adolescents, we hypothesized that low levels of physical activity (PA) would show associations with asthma that vary by asthma outcome. The objective was to assess whether PA was associated with and/or .
Benralizumab is a humanized monoclonal antibody that targets the α chain of the IL-5 receptor (IL-5Rα) and is currently being assessed in clinical trials for asthma control.
