Book Description :

Asthma, allergy and chronic obstructive lung disease are common throughout the world and are increasing in incidence, particularly in the developing world. This volume provides a state-of-the-art account of the identification of new targets and the development of new therapies for these conditions. Some 40 chapters by clinical academics and senior members of the pharmaceutical industry detail the latest breakthroughs in research and development. In asthma, a promising approach is the use of therapy directed against specific Th2 responses through biological antagonists of IL-5, IL-4 and IL-13. There have also been major advances in our understanding of innate immune responses to pathogen-associated molecular patterns, and in the area of Toll-like receptors. Up to date and comprehensive, this book will be of particular relevance to those working in the pharmaceutical industry (in preclinical research and clinical development), to academic researchers in the field of respiratory medicine, and to respiratory health care specialists.

How to naturally reverse ASTHMA and COPD with the use of herb Asthma is also known to be a disease associated with the airways in the lungs which allows the coming in and out of air out of the lungs. From the research made out of the total population of Americans, it is estimated that millions has this chronic obstructive condition which is known as ASTHMA. If one is to understand asthma, one needs to be particular about, or should have the knowledge of how one breathe, air that we take from the surrounding passes through our nose, which then finds it way into the throat to the airways and finally to the lungs, in the lungs, small passages exists which helps in oxygen delivering from the air to our bloodstream, so this is how asthma takes place or occur, when we notice swellings of the lining of the airways which in returns causes the muscles close to them to tighten up, there will be too much of mucus which will eventually cause a reduction of the amount of air that will pass through it, when this happens, difficulty in breathing takes place associated with wheezing and coughing which will in return lead to tightness in the heart thereby causing what is called ASTHMA.

Book Description :

Among the different respiratory diseases that afflict humans, there are three of which it can be said that they are in the first line, since they are diseases of the respiratory system that occur with an unusual frequency and that carry high social and economic costs, but they are not it may be unaware of the prevalence of others, even much more serious, but whose evolution over time is significantly slow.This work will focus on the causes, symptoms, prevention, and treatment of influenza, asthma, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD); in order to publicize different aspects of each one of them, considering the importance of patients understanding the evolution of the disease, its different symptoms and the appropriate treatment of them.Since the dawn of humanity, the human being has been advocated to live with innumerable viruses that cause different affections to the respiratory system, practically annually there are different mutations of them (viruses), which makes their control very difficult. Stationary influenza is a reality, that is, one that develops at certain times of the year and that despite the fact that science has learned to fight certain specific groups of the population through vaccination, but with the aggravation of year after year a different strain must be produced, according to the evolution or resistance of the virus.In the case of asthma, a disease that develops due to genetic and environmental circumstances, where a very high percentage of the population is exposed to suffering from it, since basically it is an allergic reaction that reacts by inflaming the respiratory tract and causing difficulties in breathe.On the other hand, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease or COPD, which has its origin in environmental issues and social practices, is one of the respiratory conditions that causes the most deaths in the world; since it is a progressive disease and for which a cure has not been found. The health systems of different nations have to make huge expenses to treat COPD patients, a disease that in many cases makes people a burden to the state. Humanity is taking time to make adequate decisions regarding certain social activities that lead to the development of this serious disease. Science has proven ad nauseam that smoking is the main cause of it, but has not taken action on the matter radically prohibiting the use of tobacco, it seems that the taxes generated by this "vice" are the cause of that governments are benevolent with the multinational tobacco companies.Finally, as a patient that I have been for more than a decade of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease or COPD, I want to share with the readers of this work, my experiences for the proper management of it, both from the point of view of traditional medicine, as well as from the homeopathic perspective, considering, the importance of our being able to cope with these conditions and thus have a better quality of life.

Book Description :

Historically, asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) represent polar ends of the spectrum of airways disease defined in part by distinctive profiles of airway inflammation; in practice, overlap can exist between asthma and COPD. This thesis examined the pattern of inflammatory cell infiltration and cytokine expression within the bronchus in COPD and asthma with further study of moderate-severe asthma. In addition using sputum, cytokine expression was further assessed in COPD and asthma and its relation to severity. Based on previous studies, this thesis examined the expression of specifically Interleukin (IL)-13 and Granulocyte Macrophage Colony Stimulating Factor (GMCSF). We demonstrated mast cell myositis in moderate and severe asthma which reflected increased disease symptoms. Preferential localization of inflammatory cells to airway smooth muscle (ASM) was absent in COPD. CD3+ T-cells infiltration of large airway glands was increased in COPD which may influence mucus hyper-secretion. We demonstrated IL-13 overexpression within the submucosa in moderate-severe asthma with specific increase in the ASM in severe disease. IL-13 expression was related to eosinophilic inflammation. In sputum, IL-13 protein was increased in mild and severe asthma reflecting IL-13 expression in ASM. There was a general absence of bronchus and sputum IL-13 in COPD. Sputum GMCSF was increased in moderate-severe asthma and mild-severe COPD. Parallel upregulation of GMCSF and associated receptor (GMCSFr) expression in the submucosa and ASM was present in severe asthma. GMCSF/GMCSFr expression did not exhibit preferential expression in the large airway of COPD. Our findings suggest inflammatory cell infiltration of the airway structures is present in asthma and COPD which may influence the phenotype. In addition IL-13 is important in severe asthma whilst GMCSF is expressed in asthma and COPD across a range of severity, but to a greater degree in severe asthma.
