A Systematic Review of Associations of Physical Activity and Sedentary Time with Asthma Outcomes

ConclusionsPeople with asthma engage in lower levels of physical activity compared with controls. Higher levels of physical activity may positively impact on asthma clinical outcomes. Sedentary time should be more widely assessed.

Objectives We surveyed women from a primary care population to assess the prevalence of unreported vulvovaginal symptoms. Materials and Methods A random sample of women aged 18 to 84 years without a diagnosis of vulvovaginitis or vulvodynia in the past year were surveyed anonymously about prevalence and severity of vulvar and vaginal symptoms of itching, burning, irritation, vaginal discharge, vaginal dryness, and vulvovaginal pain in the past month. Women reporting at least 1 moderate-severe symptom were considered symptomatic. Demographic and clinical characteristics were compared between women with and without symp...

Studies evaluating the association between abdominal obesity and asthma yielded conflict results. Whether abdominal obesity is positively associated with asthma remains unclear.

Allergic rhinitis (AR) is a nasal inflammatory response caused by an exaggerated immunological reaction to an allergen that is generally characterized by one or more symptoms of nasal congestion, sneezing, rhinorrhea, and nasal itching.1 AR is one of the most common chronic diseases in both pediatric and adult patients, affecting 5.6 million children2 and 19.9 million adults in the US.3 While AR is typically categorized as perennial (PAR; occurring year-round) or seasonal (SAR; occurring in a specific pollen season), the distinction between these can be difficult to determine as some patients can have both SAR and PAR, and...

This study examined innate immune profiles associated with the development of egg allergy and natural tolerance in childhood, including the effects of serum vitamin D. The study used peripheral blood mononuclear cell samples longitudinally collected from 54 infants enrolled in the population-based HealthNuts study: 36 who had egg allergy at age 1 year and 18 with no food allergy.

Food allergy (FA) is a rising public health concern, affecting up to 5% of the pediatric population.1 Oral food challenges (OFCs) are the gold standard for diagnosing FA.2 Although the decision to undergo an OFC is multifactorial, current guidelines suggest considering an OFC when the likelihood of passing the challenge is approximately 50%.3 Prior studies have shown that performing an OFC is associated with better quality of life (QOL) among caregivers of individuals with FA and reduced parental burden of FA, regardless of challenge outcome.

AbstractAllergic eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) is a chronic, allergen-mediated inflammatory disease of the esophagus, and the most common cause of prolonged dysphagia in children and young adults in the developed world. While initially undistinguished from gastroesophageal reflux disease-associated esophageal eosinophilia, EoE is now recognized as a clinically distinct entity that shares fundamental inflammatory features of other allergic conditions and is similarly increasing in incidence and prevalence. The clinical and epidemiologic associations between EoE and other allergic manifestations are well established. In add...

AbstractChildren living in lower-income urban communities are at much greater risk of developing asthma, going to the emergency department for an asthma attack and being hospitalized for asthma than children living in upper- and middle-income communities. For many asthmatic children living in urban communities, especially those with greater morbidity, the allergic pathway is important in the etiology of the disease. The stages of developing allergic disease can be divided into the onset of allergic sensitization, development of allergic disease and subsequent exacerbations, and it is useful to consider the relevance of int...
