09:15 AM - 11:15 AM
Ballroom B (South Building, Level 3), Walter E. Washington Convention Center
This pro/con session will review the evidence on four current controversies in pediatric asthma: 1) Early environmental allergen exposure prevents asthma; 2) Vitamin D supplementation should be a part of asthma management; 3) FeNO should be a standard part of asthma monitoring; and 4) Intermittent ICS is preferred therapy for preschool children with intermittent asthma. Each speaker will review current literature as they present their argument either for or against the topic statement.

Scientific Symposium

D87 - OBESITY AND CHRONIC RESPIRATORY DISEASES IN CHILDREN: RECENT ADVANCES AND CLINICAL IMPLICATIONS

05/24/2017
01:30 PM - 03:30 PM
Ballroom B (South Building, Level 3), Walter E. Washington Convention Center
Mounting evidence over the past 10-15 years has demonstrated an association between obesity and chronic respiratory conditions in children, including asthma and sleep disorders. In this session, we will review current epidemiological and experimental evidence for these associations. We will then discuss proposed mechanisms including epigenetic regulation, the role of obesity-related metabolic changes, and alterations in the microbiome that may underlie both obesity and childhood respiratory diseases. Next, we will focus on important management considerations for these patients, as well as on the transition to adolescence and adulthood. Finally, we will discuss unanswered questions and propose directions for future research in the field.
