The Town-Level Prevalence of Chronic Lung Conditions and Death From COVID-19 Among Older Adults in Connecticut and Rhode Island
30-06-2022CONCLUSION: We found significant associations between town-level factors and COVID-19, adding to the current understanding of the impact of social determinants of health on outcomes.

A Socioecological Mixture Model of Asthma Prevalence Among Sexual Minority Adults in the United States
30-06-2022Purpose: Sexual minority (SM) identity as well as sociodemographic and socioeconomic factors are associated with asthma prevalence. A syndemics framework analyzes disease conditions in a population and the social, economic, and environmental contexts in which they are found. We used a syndemic model of individual-level socioecological factors to identify profiles of asthma prevalence among SM adults. Methods: Latent class analysis (LCA) was conducted on a subpopulation of SM adults aged 18-59...

A Novel Nonhuman Primate Model of Nonatopic Asthma
30-06-2022Nonhuman primate models have an essential role in understanding progressive respiratory disease pathogenesis. Immune and physiologic parameters in the nonhuman primate closely reflect the complexity of human systems and provide an exceptional translational impact for the investigation of the mucosal immune changes in response to environmental exposures. This potential warrants the development of novel models that will clarify the interaction of respiratory disease and the inhalable environment...

Modeling Asthma in Mice Using Rhinovirus Infection
30-06-2022Rhinovirus (RV) infection is linked to early life wheezing and exacerbation of adult asthma. RV infection can be modeled in adult and neonatal mice. This chapter outlines methods for the production of standardized human rhinovirus A1B and mouse infection. The chapter also describes methods to couple infections with allergen (ovalbumin and house dust mite) administrations. The production of the virus involves its amplification, purification, and concentration. In order to standardize the...

Sex Differences in Airway Remodeling and Inflammation: Clinical and Biological Factors
30-06-2022Asthma is characterized by an increase in the contraction and inflammation of airway muscles, resulting in airflow obstruction. The prevalence of asthma is lower in females than in males until the start of puberty, and higher in adult women than men. This sex disparity and switch at the onset of puberty has been an object of debate among many researchers. Hence, in this review, we have summarized these observations to pinpoint areas needing more research work and to provide better sex-specific...
