CHEST Journal Highlights

The Impact of Asthma on Mortality in Patients With COVID-19

By: Wil Lieberman-Cribbin, MPH; Joseph Rapp, MPH; Naomi Alpert, MS; Stephanie Tuminello, MPH; and Emanuela Taioli, MD, PhD
December 2020 Issue
In this research letter, the authors describe the prevalence of asthma in the Mount Sinai Health System COVID-19 registry and the association between a history of asthma and mortality.

Expression Quantitative Trait Methylation Analysis Reveals Methylomic Associations With Gene Expression in Childhood Asthma

By: Soyeon Kim, PhD; Erick Forno, MD, MPH; Rong Zhang, PhD; et al
November 2020 Issue
Nasal (airway) epithelial methylation profiles have been associated with asthma, but the effects of such profiles on expression of distant cis-genes are largely unknown. In this study, the authors seek to identify genes whose expression is associated with proximal and distal CpG probes (within 1 Mb) and to assess whether and how such genes are differentially expressed in atopic asthma.

Differential Effect of School-Based Pollution Exposure in Children With Asthma Born Prematurely

By: Jonathan M. Gaffin, MD; Marissa Hauptman, MD, MPH; Carter R. Petty, MA; et al
October 2020 Issue
Asthma or asthma-like disease is highly prevalent in children born prematurely; however, it lacks the typical features of high rates of atopy or family history that characterize childhood asthma. In this research letter, the authors aimed to test the hypothesis that exposure to poor indoor air quality disproportionately affects asthma morbidity in children born prematurely.


Relationship Between Maternal Distress and Asthma

Does maternal distress predict atopic dermatitis and asthma in childhood?

Infographic icon

Associations between maternal distress and childhood asthma and atopic dermatitis were determined with multiple logistic regression.

Asthma at 7 years was associated with maternal prenatal distress and late-onset postpartum distress.
