Obstructive Sleep Apnea in Bronchial Asthma Patients: Assessment of Prevalence and Risk Factors.

Conclusion: :OSA is not uncommon in asthma patients. Careful assessment of sleep related symptoms and demographic parameters of asthma patients are essential to suspect diagnosis of OSA. Additional factors like smoking, obesity, GERD and allergic rhinitis are important contributing factor for higher risk of OSA among asthma patients. Early diagnosis of OSA in asthma patients by polysomnography may have a clinical benefit in the management of both diseases. PMID: 31321930 [PubMed - in process]

Abstract Adipokines are peptide mediators produced by fat cells in adipose tissue that exert a powerful influence on many body systems, including the immune system. Leptin and adiponectin are among the best known of these molecules and have been shown to affect the functions of, for instance, dendritic cells, neutrophils, and innate lymphoid cells. Here we present the results of a new study that describes the effects of leptin and adiponectin on mast cells, a cell type which plays an important role in controlling inflammatory responses. This provides an improved understanding of how obesity may contribute to chron...
