Publication date: Available online 11 November 2019Source: The Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology: In PracticeAuthor(s): Marcello Cottini, Anita Licini, Carlo Lombardi, Alvise BertiAbstractBackgroundThe involvement of small airways has recently gained greater recognition in asthma. Impulse oscillometry (IOS) is a simple and noninvasive method based on the forced oscillation technique, for the detection of small airway dysfunction (SAD).ObjectiveWe aimed to identify the predictors of SAD in an unselected sample of 400 patients with physician-diagnosed asthma.MethodsAll patients underwent standard spirometry and IOS ...

Abstract Sex hormones are best known for their influences on reproduction, but they also have profound influences on the immune response. Examples of sex-specific differences include: (i) the relatively poor control of influenza virus infections in males compared to females, (ii) allergic asthma, an IgE-associated hypersensitivity reaction that is exacerbated in adolescent females compared to males, and (iii) systemic lupus erythematosus, a life-threatening autoimmune disease with a 9:1 female:male bias. Here we consider how estrogen and estrogen receptor α (ERα) may influence the immune response by mo...

ConclusionChildren with asthma with exacerbations compared to asthma children without exacerbations are characterized by increased airway obstruction since infancy through childhood. The airway obstruction is a fixed trajectory without progression due to exacerbations, suggesting that exacerbations are a consequence rather than a cause of diminished airway caliber in childhood.

AbstractPurpose of ReviewThis review summarizes the evidence leading towards the development of new guidelines that recommend early introduction of peanut to prevent the development of peanut allergy. It also reviews the current understanding of challenges faced with implementation of these recommendations on a widespread basis.Recent FindingsPrior recommendations to avoid feeding allergenic foods to infants have been updated and reversed. This paradigm shift in advice has created an opportunity on a population level to try and halt the recent increase in prevalence of peanut allergy. However, challenges with implementatio...

We examined de-identified patient data from 28,508 unique encounters documented in the Asthma IQ database, obtaining patient level factors (demographics, asthma characteristics, co-morbidities), care setting (primary care physician [PCP] versus specialist physician [Allergist or Pulmonologist]), and guideline-defined levels of asthma control/severity. Rates of co-morbidities were identified by asthma severity and control and by care setting. We calculated odds ratios (ORs) for asthma control and severity based on each co-morbidity.ResultsBaseline demographic data indicated that patients seen by specialists versus PCPs, wer...
