Omega-3 Fatty Acids Tied to Fewer Childhood Asthma Symptoms

Johns Hopkins Medicine

A six-month study of children from Baltimore City by Johns Hopkins Medicine researchers has added to evidence that having more omega-3 fatty acids in the diet results in fewer asthma symptoms triggered by indoor air pollution. The same study suggests that higher amounts of dietary omega-6 fatty acids may have the opposite effect, and be associated with more severe asthma.

Omega-3 and Omega-6 Fatty Acids May Play Opposite Roles in Childhood Asthma

American Thoracic Society (ATS)

Dietary intake of two fatty acids, omega-3 and omega-6, may have opposite effects on the severity of asthma in children and may also play opposite roles in modifying their response to indoor air pollution, according to new research published online in the American Thoracic Society’s American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine.

Adipose hormone may play role in obesity-related asthma

Endocrine Society

New research suggests a hormone released from fat tissue is critical in the development of obesity-related asthma and may be a target of future treatments for the disease. The findings will be presented Saturday, March 23 at ENDO 2019, the Endocrine Society’s annual meeting in New Orleans, La.

Undernutrition During Pregnancy Changes Lung-Specific Gene Expression

Thomas Jefferson University

Higher rates of lung disease in children born to moms who were undernourished during pregnancy could be explained by epigenetic changes in a number of lung-specific genes.

Flinn Foundation funds NAU microbiologist’s study to address health disparities through novel therapeutic for asthma

Northern Arizona University

Although there is no cure, researchers launched a two-year clinical study to determine whether adding low-cost prebiotic soluble fiber supplements to a patient’s diet can help improve asthma symptoms.

Academic Performance of Urban Children with Asthma Worse Than Peers Without Asthma

American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology (ACAAI)

A new study shows urban children with poorly controlled asthma, particularly those who are ethnic minorities, suffer academically. Kids who are kept home due to asthma symptoms often aren’t able to do as well in the classroom.

Vitamin D may protect against pollution-associated asthma symptoms in obese children

National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS)

A new study finds vitamin D may be protective among asthmatic obese children living in urban environments with high indoor air pollution. The study out of John Hopkins University School of Medicine, funded by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), part of the National Institutes of Health, was published in The Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology: In Practice.

Southern Research teams with UAB to launch 3 pilot studies

Southern Research

How certain bacteria may make people more prone to asthma is one topic of three research grants jointly funded by Southern Research and the UAB School of Medicine. These new research pilots are the latest effort to harness synergies between researchers at the University of Alabama at Birmingham and Southern Research, a Birmingham-based nonprofit research institute with nearly 400 scientists and engineers. The two other pilots seek an improved way to develop new vaccines and a new mouse model for a potentially dangerous, hereditary deficiency shared by 400 million people worldwide.
