Asthma mortality: what have we learned?

The Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology
A S Buist

Abstract

In this article, I have tried to present the complexity of the issues relating to asthma mortality. There are many unanswered questions and few straightforward answers. It is appropriate that we be concerned that mortality rates are apparently increasing despite the availability of better antiasthma medications and that we identify the key research studies that will allow us to answer these complex questions. At the same time, we should take this opportunity to increase our educational efforts. For the health professionals these efforts should be directed toward improving the accuracy of diagnosis and appropriateness of management in asthma. For the lay public, the efforts should be directed toward increasing the awareness of the many faces of asthma.

Asthma

This feed focuses in Asthma in which your airways narrow and swell. This can make breathing difficult and trigger coughing, wheezing and shortness of breath.

Allergy and Asthma

Allergy and asthma are inflammatory disorders that are triggered by the activation of an allergen-specific regulatory t cell. These t cells become activated when allergens are recognized by allergen-presenting cells. Here is the latest research on allergy and asthma.
