Study Identifies Genetic Anomaly Associated with Poor Response to Common Asthma Treatment

Cleveland Clinic

A new Cleveland Clinic study has uncovered a genetic anomaly associated with poor response to a common asthma treatment. The findings, published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, showed that asthmatic patients with the gene variant are less likely to respond to glucocorticoids and often develop severe asthma.

Newswise: Evidence Linking ‘Vaping’ to Increased Odds Of Asthma And COPD

Evidence Linking ‘Vaping’ to Increased Odds Of Asthma And COPD

Johns Hopkins Medicine

Using data from a large federal government telephone survey of adults, Johns Hopkins Medicine researchers report evidence that inhaling heated tobacco vapor through e-cigarettes was linked to increased odds of asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), conditions long demonstrated to be caused by smoking traditional, combustible cigarettes. The data, the researchers say, also suggest that odds of developing COPD may be as much as six times greater when people report they both vape and smoke tobacco regularly, compared with those who don’t use any tobacco products at all.
