Asthma attacks in pregnancy tied to complications for mothers, babies
(Reuters Health) - Asthma attacks during pregnancy are associated with an increased risk of complications for mothers and their babies, a Canadian study suggests.
We examined 3,917 children (age 4 ‐13 years) who were enrolled in a cross‐sectional study conducted in Seongnam, Korea. Their parents completed the Pediatric Sleep Questionnaire (PSQ) for evaluation of OSAS and the International Study of Asthma and Allergies in Childhood (ISAAC) questionnaire for evaluation of rhinitis. Clinical biomarkers, including total eosinophil count and neutrophil‐lymphocyte ratio (NLR), were measured in a subset of these children.ResultsOSAS and rhinitis had prevalences of 4.0% and 43.5%, respectively.

(European Lung Foundation) Women with asthma who suffer severe symptoms while they are pregnant face higher risks of health problems both for themselves and their babies compared to women with well-controlled asthma, according to research published in the European Respiratory Journal.
Immune dysfunction and abnormal immune response may be associated with certain mechanisms underlying autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The early evidence for this link was based on the increased incidence of ASD in children with a history of maternal infection during pregnancy. Observational studies show increased prevalence of immune-related disorders—ranging from atopy, food allergy, viral infections, asthma, primary immunodeficiency, to autoimmune disorders—in individuals with ASD and their families. Evidence of neuroglial activation and focal brain inflammation in individuals with ASD implies that the central...
