Asthma

Authors of a new study propose that suppression by asthma of adaptive immunity may increase the risk of zoster virus reactivation.

Authors of a new study found that the risk of asthma had the strongest association with infections occurring before age 3 years.

Microorganisms encountered during early-life animal exposure may increase risk for respiratory infections but also decrease risk of asthma via immune modulation.

Black populations may be disproportionately affected by LABA risks. A new study finds replacement of LABA with tiotropium did not improve outcomes.

Effective asthma care requires attention to comorbidities, complications, and human characteristics of each patient. Speakers at CHEST 2015 described "the village."

New approaches discussed at CHEST 2015 ranged from the impact of bariatric surgery on asthma control to endobronchial valve placement in COPD.

In a well-attended session at CHEST 2015 a number of promising new therapies for treating COPD were reviewed by study authors.
