Behavioral interventions for asthma self-management in South Asian populations: a systematic review.

Conclusion: Behavioral interventions for asthma management in SAs are effective. Educational interventions that aim to optimize asthma knowledge, control, and inhaler technique, and yoga/breathing exercises are most effective for improved long-term outcomes in adults and children across LICs and MICs. Further research is needed to evaluate the effectiveness of all behavioral interventions for SAs in HICs to better inform current guidance by policy makers and health care providers.

In this issue of JAMA Pediatrics, Urashima and colleagues ask whether very early (within 3 days of birth) exposure to cow ’s milk formula (CMF) (a common practice in Japan) and vitamin D supplementation (uncommon in Japan) lowers or increases the risk of developing food allergy (as determined by cow’s milk–specific IgE [CM-IgE] sensitization at 5 months and 2 years of age) in infants at risk of atopy (risk was de fined as having ≥1 of the father, mother, and/or siblings with current and/or past atopic diseases [eg, asthma]). In recent years, the approach for primary prevention of food allergy has chang...

Severe steroid-resistant asthma is clinically important, as patients with this form of the disease do not respond to mainstay corticosteroid therapies. The heterogeneity of this form of asthma and poor understanding of the pathological mechanisms involved hinder the identification of therapeutic targets and the development of more effective therapies. A major limiting factor in the understanding of severe steroid-resistant asthma is the existence of multiple endotypes represented by different immunological and inflammatory phenotypes, particularly in adults. Several clinical and experimental studies have revealed associati...
