Asthma COPD and Overlap Book Review:

Using illustrative case examples, this book thoroughly reviews similarities and differences between asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and the overlap syndrome. It is important to highlight the distinctions because these commonly encountered conditions in respiratory and primary care share many similarities but have important differences often mistaken for each other. This can have serious implications for treatment, particularly as new treatments are targeted at specific phenotypes of the diseases. This practical guide shows how to distinguish between the diseases on a pathological and clinical basis so that appropriate management and treatment may be pursued.

New Drugs and Targets for Asthma and COPD Book Review:

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.

COPD Clinical Perspectives Book Review:

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is an increasingly recognized cause of morbidity and mortality. Over the next 10 years, deaths due to COPD are expected to increase by 30% and, by 2030, COPD is estimated to be the third leading cause of death worldwide. Research into the pathophysiology and management of COPD over the past decade has progressed immensely with greater understanding of the global burden of COPD, its pathophysiology, better understanding of the multisystemic manifestations of COPD, and, most importantly, novel and more effective therapeutic strategies. This volume brings together an international group of experts in COPD to provide in depth reviews of clinical perspectives into COPD. Topics range from the diagnosis of airflow limitation by spirometry; distinguishing COPD from another common obstructive lung disease, asthma; alpha-1-antitrypsin deficiency and opportunities to diagnose this most common hereditary cause of COPD and as a paradigm for the development of novel therapeutics; the overlap syndrome - the concurrence of two epidemic disorders: COPD and obstructive sleep apnea; and pulmonary rehabilitation, one of the most effective treatments for COPD.

Inflammatory Profiles in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease and Asthma Book Review:

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.

Herbs For Reversing Asthma and COPD Treatment Book Review:

How to naturally reverse ASTHMA and COPD with the use of herb and drugs. 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 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.. COPD describes lung diseases associated with chronic bronchitis characterized by breathlessness.
