The basic markers of neutrophilic inflammation in severe bronchial asthma (the literature review)

Goryachkina L.A., Biteeva D.V., Fomina D.S.


In spite of the marked insights of modern medicine into the pathogenesis of bronchial asthma, there is unresolved issue regarding achievement of therapeutic control. Understanding of the immunopathogenesis of the disease resulted in a subdivision into different biological phenotypes due to dominating inflammatory component, characterized by list of biological markers. A role of neutrophilic inflammation in bronchial asthma has been widely discussed in recent studies but is still uncertain. In general, asthma associated with neutrophils tends to be a more aggressive disease with more tissue destruction and airway remodeling; tightly associated with lower response to corticosteroids treatment, moreover, it could be induced by it.

Group of Investigators for ERAs Program, Russia. Allergic rhinitis and asthma in real clinical practice in Russia: multicenter clinical study

Emelyanov A.V., Goryachkina L.A., Astafeva N.G., Fassakhov R.S., Chernyak B.A., Abelevich M.M., Ignatova G.L., Kudelia L.M., Zhestkov A.V., Leschenko I.V., Sobko E.A., Alexeenko V.A., Burlachuk V.T., Lobanov K.I., Frolova S.A., Galimova E.S., Khassanova R.B., Koroleva M.G.


The aim of the study which included 2311 patients (aged 18—80 yrs), examined by 100 physicians (57% allergists, 37% pulmonologists and 7% general practitioner) in 18 Russian cities, was to assess the prevalence of allergic rhinitis in patients with asthma, as well as to evaluate the specifics of the course of these diseases, when concomitant or not. The study design included one outpatient visit, followed by the completion of studyspecific case report forms and Asthma Control Questionnaire (ACQ) validated for use in Russia. The vast majority (88%)of asthma patients had concomitant allergic rhinitis (Group 1). Patients with asthma only (Group 2) were older (50,6±0,78 vs 41,9±0,35 yr, p<0,05, had more severe asthma course (FEV t 70,6±1,1 vs 78,3±0,46% of predicted, p<0,05), lower prevalence of atopy (45% vs 98%, p<0,05) , higher body mass index (BMI) (28,2±0,27 vs 27,3±0,12, p<0,05), and smoked more often compared to Group 1 (30% vs 23%, p<0,05). The treatment of concomitant allergic rhinitis recommended in current clinical guidelines may improve asthma control. Significant proportions of patient with asthma (27%) and allergic rhinitis (41%) were treated not in line with evidence-based International and National Guidelines. The conclusion of this study is that allergic rhinitis is a common comorbidity in patients with asthma. The implementation of the evidence based approach to diagnosis and treatment of both diseases, in accordance with current clinical guidelines, in real clinical practice in Russia is extremely important.

Clinical and pathogenetic aspects of bronchial asthma with mycotic sensitization among residents of Siberia, Yakutia and the Russian Far East

Lazutkina E.L., Muzychenko L.M., Landyshev Y.S., Tsyrendorzhiev D.D., Chaplenko T.N.


Background. Is to investigate clinical and pathogenetic features of bronchial asthma (BA) in residents of Siberia, Yakutia, and Russian Far East with mycotic sensitization. Materials and Methods. 45 BA patients in the age group of 24—58 year-olds have been checked. Among them 245 patients were residents of Amur region, 112 patients — residents of Novosibirsk region, and 86 — of the Republic of Yakutia (SAHA), the City of Mirniy. All the patients went through a complex clinical and allergological checkup. The results were processed with «STATISTICA 6» set of programs. Results of the research. Variation in mycotic sensitization in BA patients has proved to be region-bound. Conclusion. Mycotic sensitization in BA patients is marked by predominantly severe clinical course of bronchial asthma and high levels of IgE in the patients’ serum. In the Republic of Yakutia (SAHA) the number of such patients is higher than in Amur and Novosibirsk regions. In BA patients — residents of Amur and Novosibirsk regions — mycotic allergy is accompanied by the domestic one, while in Yakutia it is observed along with epidermal sensitization.

Sobko E.A., Kraposhina A.Y., Ischenko O.P., Demko I.V., Salmina A.B., Burakov A.Y., Prugova V.L.


Background. The objective of this study was to estimate a vascular wall status of large arteries and function of endothelium in patients with different clinical forms of bronchial asthma throughout the disease progression. 220 patients with bronchial asthma have been examined, including 106 persons with moderate asthma ( 1 st group), 61 persons with severe asthma (2 nd group), and 53 persons with steroid-dependent asthma. Control group was formed from 40 healthy donors. Methods. We have assessed parameters of external respiration, arterial rigidity, and the levels of TNFα, IL-6, sCD31 (sPECAM-1), CRP in the peripheral blood at the time of exacerbation and 48 weeks later. Results. We found elevation of IL-6 and TNFα levels in all the tested groups in the period of exacerbation comparing to the control group (p<0,05), thus confirming development of SIRS. We have registered increased levels of sCD31 (sPECAM-1) in all the tested groups suggesting development of endothelial dysfunction. Increase in aorta rigidity in patients with asthma has been manifested by elevation of pulse wave velocity and augmentation index. Conclusion. We have demonstrated that the degree of arterial rigidity and endothelial dysfunction could be used as indicators of systemic inflammation being corresponded to the alterations in external respiration in asthma patients.
