The impact of asthma, chronic bronchitis and allergic rhinitis on all-cause hospitalizations and limitations in daily activities: a population-based observational study.
Background: Chronic respiratory diseases are a significant cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. We sought to evaluate the impact of asthma, chronic bronchitis and allergic rhinitis on all-cause hospitalizations and limitations in daily activities in adults.
Impact of intranasal corticosteroids on asthma outcomes in allergic rhinitis: a meta-analysis
Given the relationship between allergic rhinitis (AR) and asthma, it can be hypothesized that reducing inflammation in the upper airway with intranasal corticosteroid (INCS) medications may improve asthma outcomes.
Real-world evidence effect of budesonide+formoterol Spiromax on patients with asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease in Sweden.
Background and Objective: Despite improved asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) management, treatment remains inadequate in many patients. Understanding the impact of current treatment in settings outside of controlled trials would add important clinical decision-making information.
Understanding asthma-specific quality of life: moving beyond asthma symptoms and severity
This study identifies the unique contributions of asthma severity, symptoms, control and generic measures of quality of life (QoL) to asthma-specific QoL, as measured by the 12-item RAND Negative Impact of Asthma on...
Childhood predictors of lung function trajectories and future COPD risk: a prospective cohort study from the first to the sixth decade of life.
Background: Lifetime lung function is related to quality of life and longevity. Over the lifespan, individuals follow different lung function trajectories.
Relationship between the characteristics of hospitalised acute asthma patients and the severity of their asthma. A case-control study
Background: The EAGLE project database was analysed to assess the characteristics of patients with severe (SA) who required hospitalisation as a result of an acute episode during the period 1994-2004, and the relationship with asthma severity.
Prevalence and management of severe asthma in primary care: an observational cohort study in Sweden (PACEHR).
Background: Severe and uncontrolled asthma is associated with increased risk of exacerbations and death. A substantial proportion of asthma patients have poor asthma control, and a concurrent COPD diagnosis often increases disease burden.
