CONCLUSIONS: Healthcare providers often discuss asthma control indicators with patients. Children and some racial and ethnic minorities were more frequently assessed on key asthma control indicators compared to adults and non-Hispanic whites, respectively. These findings may reflect provider efforts to target asthma control communications to populations with higher risk of morbidity. PMID: 31007107 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Shumyatcher M, Hong R, Levin J, Himes BE Abstract Unbiased genetic association studies, including genome-wide association and whole-genome sequencing studies, have uncovered many novel disease-associated variants. Relatively few of these associated regions, however, have led to insights that are biologically mechanistic or clinically actionable due in part to the difficulty in designing appropriate functional validation studies to understand how variants contribute to disease. Asthma is a complex inflammatory lung disease for which many genetic associations have been identified. Using asthma as a disease m...

Publication date: Available online 22 April 2019Source: Respiratory InvestigationAuthor(s): Kazuhiro Yatera, Hiroshi MukaeAbstractNitric oxide (NO) has broad physiologic functions, including vasodilation, bronchodilatation, neurotransmission, inflammation, and host defense. Fraction of exhaled NO (FeNO) is used as a biomarker of eosinophilic airway inflammation for asthma control. However, the role of NO in the pathogenesis and progression of asthma is not well understood. Additionally, the absence of bronchial eosinophilic inflammation, mucus hypersecretion, and increased Th2 cytokine levels in mice lacking NO synthase is...

This study investigates the health and societal effects of fragranced products on asthmatics in four countries: United States, Australia, United Kingdom, and Sweden. Nationally representative population surveys (n = 1137; 1098; 1100; 1100) found that, across the four countries, 26.0% of adults (n = 1151) are asthmatic, reporting medically diagnosed asthma (15.8%), an asthma-like condition (11.1%), or both. Among these asthmatics, 57.8% report adverse health effects, including asthma attacks (25.0%), respiratory problems (37.7%), and migraine headaches (22.6%), from exposure to fragrance d produc...

CONCLUSION: This study finds that yoga and meditation are used by middle-to-higher aged Australian women with chronic illnesses. The lack of communication with health care providers is concerning and might hinder coordinated and effective health care around chronic illness. Further research is necessary to help understand possible concurrent health care use and thereby help inform safe, effective and coordinate health seeking amongst those with chronic illness.

CONCLUSIONS: The prevalence of complementary and alternative medicine use in children with asthma is high, with the majority of families perceiving benefit from its use. This study offers clinicians a reference to inform families regarding the subjective helpfulness of various types of complementary and alternative medicine modalities that can facilitate the dialogue between health care professionals and families interested in complementary and alternative medicine use.
