Clinical insights from epidemiological and phenotypes studies. 2. Is obesity a confounding factor in the diagnosis and management of asthma and especially in severe or difficult-to-control asthma? 3. How obese asthma subjects respond to pharmacological treatments, and to biological drugs? Do we have effective specific interventions?. Revised epidemiological, pathological and mechanistic evidence combined with data from the intervention clinical trials do not ...
