Authors: Eusebio M, Kraszula L, Kupczyk M, Kuna P, Pietruczuk M Abstract Preliminary studies demonstrated the potential role of CD8+CD25+ T regulatory cells (Tregs) in asthma. However, published data with regard to the relevance of signaling pathways that govern Tregs homeostasis are limited and conflicting. The first aim of this study was to characterize the phosphorylation of STAT-5 in CD8+CD25+ Tregs. The second aim was to investigate the ability of CD8+CD25+ Tregs from patients and controls to respond to interleukin (IL)-2 treatment in vitro. Twenty-five healthy subjects (NC) and 50 patients with either severe ...

We examined which patients respond to systematic assessment and whether oral corticosteroid burden can be decreased independent of monoclonal biologic use.MethodsSpecialist-referred patients are assessed systematically for difficult asthma at our centre. We undertook a responder analysis for improvements in the domains of symptom control, quality of life, exacerbations and airflow obstruction, assessed six months after initial assessment. Multivariate analyses were performed for each domain to identify predictors of response. Changes in oral corticosteroid burden were also measured, stratified by monoclonal biologics comme...
