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.
Mepolizumab targets eosinophils in the treatment of asthma. The dose used for asthma is considerably lower than that used for treating eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis, a recently approved indication. While intravenous mepolizumab use has reported utility in non-asthma eosinophilic disorders, the efficacy of the subcutaneous asthma dosing of the drug for eosinophilic pneumonia is not known.
A stepwise therapeutic management is recommended for asthma patients by the Global Initiative for Asthma (GINA). Little is known about the recommendations applied in real world settings. This study aims to associate Treatment Step with clinical events in patients with mild or severe asthma.
To investigate whether patients with moderate to severe asthma who commence an exercise training program in winter or summer show differences in exercise capacity, health-related quality of life (HRQoL) and asthma symptoms.
It is a well-known fact that there is significant heterogeneity in the origins of asthma in adults and children. This article examines the roots of asthma across the ages including atopy, the role of the microbiome and viral infections, along with comorbidities/confounders such as obesity, aspirin-exacerbated respiratory disease (AERD), neutrophilic asthma, cigarette smoking and the possibility of an asthma-chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) overlap syndrome.
To review therapeutic options for stepwise management of pediatric asthma in the context of this population's unique needs such as potential effects of asthma, treatments, or both on growth and psychosocial development, and caregiver involvement.
Asthma guidelines recommend specialist care for patients experiencing poor asthma outcomes during emergency department (ED) visits. The prevalence and predictors of asthma specialist care among an ED population seeking pediatric asthma care are unknown.
Maternal asthma is associated with increased risk of preeclampsia and asthma incidence in children. The joint effect of these maternal conditions on child asthma risk is unknown.
The prevalence and burden of asthma is increasing worldwide. In this study, we analyzed 3 different Korean national health survey datasets to determine the general features of adult asthma in Korea and to obtain basic information that would support future strategies for better management of adult asthma.
Adult-onset asthma is an important asthma phenotype and, in contrast to childhood asthma, is often associated with specific triggers of onset. It is unknown whether these triggers correspond with specific phenotypic characteristics, or predict a specific asthma outcome.
Asthma- COPD overlap (ACO) is a clinical phenotype sharing features of asthma and COPD. Multidetector row computed tomography (MDCT) can be used to evaluate the airway structure; however, differences between asthma and ACO seen on MDCT are poorly understood.
Assessment of asthma control and provision of asthma action plans are seldom performed in practice, partly due to limited time for physicians to ascertain required information. A patient-facing electronic asthma questionnaire could facilitate information collection. We sought to design a touch-tablet asthma questionnaire for use in the clinic waiting room and to describe patient preferences for the content of such a questionnaire.
Pediatric asthma is a major contributor to emergency room utilization and hospital readmission rates.
Asthma affects approximately 20,383,000 Americans and costs the US $56 billion dollars annually. Asthma burden is not uniform across different racial/ethnic groups. Although annual asthma prevalences by racial/ethnic group are provided by the CDC, these numbers do not account for the influence of other sociodemographic and clinical factors. In this study, we evaluated several measures of asthma burden that controlled for sociodemographic and clinical factors and compared them to 2015 CDC asthma prevalences ...
Asthma is a heterogenous disease characterized by multiple phenotypes driven by different mechanisms. The implementation of precision medicine in the management of asthma requires the identification of phenotype-specific markers measurable in biological fluids. To become useful, these biomarkers need to be quantifiable by reliable systems, reproducible in the clinical setting, easy to obtain and cost-effective. Using biomarkers to predict asthma outcomes and therapeutic response to targeted therapies has a ...
The maximum symptom day, a primary outcome of inner-city asthma research for almost two decades, is a valid measure that consistently relates to asthma control and is predictive of clinically relevant asthma endpoints.
The aim of this study was to investigate the associations of asthma with the psychological profile (depression and anxiety) of children with asthma and their mothers as well as the attitudes of these mothers toward their children and their family relationships.
Emergency department (ED) visits are an opportunity to initiate chronic asthma care. Ideally, this care should be implemented in a fashion that limits utilization of scarce ED resources. We developed, iteratively refined, and pilot tested the feasibility of a computerized asthma kiosk to (1) capture asthma information, (2) deliver asthma education, and (3) facilitate guideline-based chronic asthma management.
T helper (Th) 17 cells play a critical role in the development of asthma, but the underlying mechanism of how interleukin (IL)-17 is regulated in allergic airway inflammation is poorly understood. In this study, we investigated the impact of Bcl11b on Th17 response in asthma.
Asthma is a heterogeneous disease with complex mechanisms and involves many risk factors and in vivo cellular molecules. It is notable that gender differences may have a potential effect on asthma phenotype.
Oral corticosteroids (OCSs) are often used to achieve asthma control. OCS-related comorbidities increase the burden of disease for patients and healthcare providers. Most studies characterizing OCS use and risk of adverse events (AEs) are in non-asthma patients. We sought to systematically review the literature on the burden of OCS use among adults with asthma.
We aimed to conduct a systematic review of the literature regarding the association between asthma and caries, assess the effect of asthma on the occurrence of caries in primary and permanent dentitions, and determine factors that could affect the estimates of this association.
There is a longstanding recognition of the detrimental effect of poorly controlled asthma on sleep, but recent years have seen a growing interest in how asthma and sleep may interact. This review examines the current evidence of relationships between asthma, sleep and sleep disorders.
Asthma and obesity are major public health problems, affecting hundreds of millions of people worldwide. Obesity is associated with increased asthma risk and severity, and lower asthma-related quality of life.
