(The Endocrine Society) Individuals taking a class of steroid hormones called glucocorticoids for conditions such as asthma, allergies and arthritis on a routine basis may be unable to mount a normal stress response and are at high risk if they are infected with the virus causing COVID-19, according to a new editorial published in the Endocrine Society's Journal of Clinical Endocrinology&Metabolism.

Airway hyperresponsiveness (AHR) to direct stimuli is a characteristic feature of asthma and is thought to be due to airway smooth muscle dysfunction1. Patients with non-asthmatic chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) demonstrate AHR to direct stimuli (e.g. methacholine, histamine); this AHR correlates with the degree of airflow obstruction2-4 and is thought to be, in whole or in part, a function of altered airway geometry. We hypothesized that to the extent that AHR in COPD was due to geometric effect(s) of airflow obstruction, it would be less protected by acute treatment with beta agonist.
