Authors:
Marek Lommatzsch

Dtsch Med Wochenschr 2020 Jun 3;145(11):767-771. Epub 2020 Jun 3.

Abteilung für Pneumologie/Interdisziplinäre Internistische Intensivstation, Medizinische Klinik I, Zentrum für Innere Medizin, Universitätsmedizin Rostock.

Accumulating evidence suggests that a symptom-driven therapy with fixed combinations of inhaled corticosteroids (ICS) and formoterol is safer and more feasible in patients with mild asthma than a treatment with short-acting beta-2-agonists (SABA) alone. Therefore, the new international GINA asthma guideline (2019) recommends, for the first time, as needed low dose ICS-formoterol as the preferred controller in treatment step 1. This radical paradigm shift will have a major impact on asthma care in the future. Read More

Prenatal exposure to endocrine disrupting chemicals and asthma and allergic diseases.

Authors:
M Casas M Gascon

J Investig Allergol Clin Immunol 2020 Jun 3. Epub 2020 Jun 3.

ISGlobal, Barcelona, Spain.

Endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs), chemicals that can interfere with endogenous hormones and that are present in many consumer products, can affect the development and functions of the immune system. The prenatal period is critical because exposure to EDCs can induce irreversible changes in the immune system and increase the susceptibility of asthma and allergies later in life. Non-persistent EDCs are of most concern due to their high annual production and potential toxicity. Read More

Hypersensitivity of Airway Reflexes Induced by Hydrogen Sulfide: Role of TRPA1 Receptors.

Int J Mol Sci 2020 May 30;21(11). Epub 2020 May 30.

School of Respiratory Therapy, College of Medicine, Taipei Medical University, Taipei 110, Taiwan.

The activation of capsaicin-sensitive lung vagal (CSLV) afferents can elicit airway reflexes. Hypersensitivity of these afferents is known to contribute to the airway hypersensitivity during airway inflammation. Hydrogen sulfide (HS) has been suggested as a potential therapeutic agent for airway hypersensitivity diseases, such as asthma, because of its relaxing effect on airway smooth muscle and anti-inflammatory effect.

Airway Mycosis and the Regulation of Type 2 Immunity.

J Fungi (Basel) 2020 May 29;6(2). Epub 2020 May 29.

Department of Pathology and Immunology, Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, TX 77030, USA.

Filamentous fungi of the Aspergillus genus and others have long been linked to the induction of type 2 immunity that underlies IgE-mediated hypersensitivity responses. This unique immune response is characterized by the production of the allergy-associated T helper cell type 2 (Th2) and Th17 cytokines interleukin 4 (IL-4), IL-13, and IL-17 that drive IgE, eosinophilia, airway hyperresponsiveness and other manifestations of asthma. Proteinases secreted by filamentous fungi promote type 2 immunity, but the mechanism by which this occurs has long remained obscure. Read More

Dupilumab improves clinical outcomes in patients with asthma and perennial allergic rhinitis.

Ann Allergy Asthma Immunol 2020 May 28. Epub 2020 May 28.

Sanofi, Bridgewater, NJ, USA.

Background: Comorbid perennial allergic rhinitis (PAR), or year-round aeroallergen sensitivity, significantly contributes to disease burden in asthma patients. Dupilumab blocks the shared receptor for interleukin (IL)-4 and IL-13, key drivers of type 2 inflammation that play important roles in asthma and PAR. In LIBERTY ASTHMA QUEST (NCT02414854), dupilumab reduced severe asthma exacerbations and improved forced expiratory volume in 1 second (FEV1) in patients with uncontrolled, moderate-to-severe asthma, with greater efficacy observed in patients with elevated type 2 inflammatory biomarkers at baseline (blood eosinophils and fractional exhaled nitric oxide [FeNO]).
