Older people who use steroid inhalers for asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are more likely to suffer particular bacterial infections, according to a large study.
Children exposed to high indoor levels of pet or pest allergens during infancy have a lower risk of developing asthma by 7 years of age, new research reveals. The findings may provide clues for the design of strategies to prevent asthma from developing.
A new lung cell type that is implicated in the body's innate immune defense against the bacteria Streptococcus pneumoniae -- one of the leading causes of pneumonia worldwide -- has been discovered by researchers.
Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) can slow the decline in lung function in middle-aged women, according to new research.
The coralberry could offer new hope for asthmatics: researchers have extracted a new kind of active pharmaceutical ingredient from its leaves to combat this widespread respiratory disease. In mice, it almost completely inhibits the characteristic contraction of the airways. The plant itself is not exotic: it can be found in any well-stocked garden center.
The term COPD refers as Common Obstructive Pulmonary Disease. This is mainly a breathing disorder which can lead to bronchitis and emphysema. Progressively worsening airflow obstruction. It is often present in 6th decades of life or later in patients. Show More Summary
Two new studies highlight the risks associated with using e-cigarettes, especially for those who also smoke conventional cigarettes.
Nerve cells in the gut play a crucial role in the body's ability to marshal an immune response to infection, according to a new study.
Researchers describe how the concentration of mucins -- the proteins that make mucus thick -- is abnormally high in chronic bronchitis and that high mucin concentrations are associated with disease severity in people with chronic bronchitis. Show More Summary
Researchers want to prevent alpha-synuclein from accumulating in the brain. To do so, the team searched for drugs that turn down alpha-synuclein production. They then tested the drugs in mice and stem cells and studied in data from the health records of millions of people living in Norway. The results of their efforts, point to a new drug development path for PD.
New research highlights the importance of immune cell metabolism for maintaining a balanced immune response.
Oral steroids should not be used for treating acute lower respiratory tract infection (or 'chest infections') in adults who don't have asthma or other chronic lung disease, as they do not reduce the duration or severity of symptoms.
Latest global estimates illustrate the vast impact of the two most common chronic respiratory diseases, with 3.2 million deaths from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and 0.4 million deaths caused by asthma in 2015, according to a new Global Burden of Disease study. Show More Summary
New study finds that elemental sulfur is linked to reduced lung function, more asthma-related symptoms and higher asthma medication use in children living about a half-mile or less from farms that use the pesticide.
Scientists have made a significant breakthrough in understanding the regulation of immune cells that play a pivotal role in allergic diseases such as asthma and eczema. They have identified a 'checkpoint' manned by these immune cells that, if barred, can halt the development of the lung inflammation associated with allergies.
