Impact of Adult Asthma

To assess the separate and interactive effects of asthma severity, subspecialty practice variation, asthma-related psychosocial variables, and other factors on asthma outcomes, including asthma-specific quality of life and activity limitations, health care utilization for asthma, and direct and indirect costs of asthma.

Improving the Quality of Asthma Care Using the Internet

It is important for people with asthma to become involved in their asthma care and management. This study will evaluate an interactive Web site that provides tailored feedback and information to asthma patients and encourages them to ask their doctor specific questions about their asthma care.

Asthma Inpatient Research on Education

Families of children with asthma are admitted for asthma attacks very frequently compared to adults with asthma. They are given education about asthma but studies are needed to improve this education so that it makes a meaningful difference in their child's health outcomes.

Improving Asthma Communication in Minority Families

The purpose of this study is to determine if teaching children with asthma how to talk to their doctor about controlling their asthma including symptom frequency in an asthma diary and medication use techniques, will result in less symptom and missed school days, fewer emergency room visits and reduce the cost of asthma health care.

Asthma Control, Quality of Life and Emotional Feelings in a Real Life Setting

This study aims to evaluate the asthma control status, asthma symptoms (severity, frequency, and limitations on activities, etc.), QOL, and use of drugs for asthma attack in adult asthma patients.

General Risk Factors and Inflammatory Determinants in Older Patients With Asthma

A cross-sectional study in asthma patients to determine if a late age of onset asthma (start symptoms >18 years old), is associated with more persistent airway/systemic inflammation, worse asthma control, more co-morbidity and poorer quality of life despite the use of optimized asthma therapy.

Iggy and the Inhalers: A Study to Assess the Impact of an Asthma Education Program in School Age Children

The specific aims of this pilot study are to: 1. Evaluate the effectiveness of the asthma education intervention on asthma knowledge 2. Determine whether the asthma education intervention improves child and parent asthma treatment self-efficacy Our hypothesis is that the asthma education intervention will significantly improve asthma knowledge and asthma self-efficacy at 1 month post-intervention as compared to controls.

Inflammation and Corticosteroid Responsiveness in Severe Asthma

Some patients with mild asthma may develop severe asthma. It is not known what makes patients with mild asthma become severe, and we plan to find out why this happens. Patients with severe asthma may have a different type of inflammation in the airway tubes. Patients with severe asthma do not get as much benefit from taking steroid inhalers or tablets compared to asthma patients with mild disease. The study hypothesis is that the inflammation in severe asthma is such that it m...

Mechanisms of Exacerbation of Asthma

The purpose of this study is to identify the causes of asthma that were not previously suspected, to better understand the effects of inhaled steroids on asthma and to identify new way to treat asthma. In order to take advantage of the most current scientific expertise, we (scientists at UCSF) plan to work together with Genentech Inc. We believe that working with Genentech will provide the best chance of developing new treatments for asthma.

Study of the Mechanisms of Asthma

The purpose of this study is to identify the causes of asthma that were not previously suspected, to better understand the effects of inhaled steroids on asthma and to identify new way to treat asthma. In order to take advantage of the most current scientific expertise, we (scientists at UCSF) plan to work together with Genentech Inc. We believe that working with Genentech will provide the best chance of developing new treatments for asthma.

A Long-Term Examination of Asthma From Childhood Through Adolescence

Asthma is a common disease that is often diagnosed in childhood. In some teenagers, asthma symptoms disappear and treatment can be stopped; however, for some of these people, asthma symptoms return in adulthood. This study will examine data collected over the lifetime of 18-year olds to identify factors that may increase a person's chance of having recurrent asthma as an adult.

Intense Airway Eosinophilia in Asthma

In asthma, the type and importance of the inflammatory response in the airways has allows identification of different phenotypes. Of these, one of the most common is eosinophilic asthma, based on induced sputum differential cell count. Patients with severe asthma and an eosinophilic asthma phenotype have different pathophysiological characteristics than those seen in patients with with mild asthma. However, few studies have compared patients with eosinophilic phenotype accordin...

Comparing Asthma Action Plans for Pediatric Asthma

The purpose of this study is to evaluate and compare the relative effectiveness of two asthma action plans (pictorial versus written) in terms of asthma action plan knowledge, medication use, and family satisfaction with asthma education.

Asthma Express: Bridging the Emergency to Primary Care in Underserved Children

Asthma is the number one cause of pediatric emergency department (ED) visits in young minority children and is responsible for high healthcare costs. The ED is often the point of contact for many inner city children and many families view the ED as the child's primary source of asthma care. This study plans to test a new model of asthma care, Asthma Express (AEx), that includes a follow-up asthma visit in the ED for an asthma "check-up" , asthma education, a prescription for p...

Asthma Origins and Remission Study

Asthma is characterized by chronic airway inflammation of the large and small airways. Asthma patients often have episodes with symptoms of dyspnea, wheezing and nocturnal awakening. Currently available inhaled anti-inflammatory treatments reduce the airway inflammation and treatment but do not cure the disease. Therefore asthma patients often need life-long treatment to control their asthma. In a small subset of patients, their asthma resolves spontaneously. This phenomenon i...

National Survey on Asthma

To evaluate the concordance of the most frequently used words by the patients and the physicians to express asthma symptoms, according to the patient's level of asthma control.

Center for Reducing Asthma Disparities - Howard/Hopkins Centers

To evaluate asthma morbidity in low-income, African-American children and adults with asthma.

Center for Reducing Asthma Disparities - Meharry/Vanderbilt Centers

The purpose of this study is to determine the mechanisms underlying the disparities in asthma and to improve asthma care in pregnant women, a targeted group at high risk for asthma-specific maternal and perinatal complications.

Adolescent and Adult Subjects With Asthma and Seasonal Allergic Rhinitis Receiving Advair Diskus or Placebo

The four respiratory drugs being researched in this study have been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and are currently available by prescription at your drug store. One of the drugs is for the treatment of asthma alone, one is for treatment of SAR alone, and one is for treatment of both SAR and asthma. In addition, you will also receive one asthma rescue drug (albuterol) that is to be used for any breakthrough asthma symptoms that you may experience throu...

Interrelation Between Bronchial Asthma and Smoking

Smoking occurs frequently in patients with asthma. Recent surveys on smoking prevalence report 21-26% current smokers in populations of patients with asthma. Detrimental effects of active smoking in asthma include worse asthma control, an impaired response to corticosteroids and accelerated lung function decline.

Evaluate the Effects on Asthma Control of Rabeprazole Given Twice Daily in Subjects With Asthma.

The hypothesis for this study is that potent anti-secretory therapy with high dose PPI improves asthma control regardless of either asthma severity or the presence of GERD symptoms.

National Mobile Asthma Management System-E Project

Bronchial asthma is a heterogeneous disease characterized by chronic airway inflammation, which is a common and frequently occurring disease in the world, and has resulted in a sustained increase of social and economic burden. However, several studies suggest, lots of asthma patients did not get their asthma controlled. The investigators study showed that in China only 28.7% of asthma patients achieve asthma controlled during 2007-2008. In recent years, application softwares of...

Immune Interactions in Severe Asthma

This research study is being done to learn more about severe asthma by comparing people with severe asthma to those with milder forms of asthma and people without asthma, at baseline and over time. Individuals are being asked to join a research study to help understand the differences in the lungs and blood of participants with severe asthma compared to those with milder asthma and healthy individuals, as well as differences in overall health. Investigators also want to determi...

Improving Asthma Outcomes in an Urban Pediatric Population

Little is known about how ED-based programs can help to reduce pediatric ED visits for asthma. The current study evaluated a novel intervention in which the ED itself became the site of highly individualized, comprehensive follow-up asthma care. It sought to determine if such an intervention could decrease subsequent unscheduled visits for asthma while improving asthma quality of life.

Exercise Therapy for Asthma (ETA Trial)

The purpose of the study is to determine if a program of regular exercise can help reduce asthma symptoms and also reduce the inflammation caused by asthma. If successful, this would allow regular exercise to be recommended as a therapy for people with asthma, which could possibly reduce the amount of medicine that people with asthma need to control their asthma symptoms.
