Mechanisms and Manifestations of Obesity in Lung Disease

Mechanisms and Manifestations of Obesity in Lung Disease is a complete resource on the epidemiology and molecular mechanisms related to obesity and lung disease. Obesity has not simply changed the epidemiology of pulmonary disease, it has had a profound impact on the pathophysiology of common pulmonary diseases. As the obesity epidemic has taken hold throughout the developed world, scientists and clinicians are now challenged with identifying the mechanisms by which obesity alters lung health and the pathogenesis of lung diseases. This book is an important new resource for both clinicians and scientists dealing with these new health problems in pulmonary medicine. Presents an all-in-one resource that describes the impact of obesity on the development and severity of lung disease Details the molecular and immunologic mechanisms by which obesity impacts the pathogenesis and outcomes of lung disease Includes contributions from authors who are internationally recognized as leaders in the area of obesity and lung disease

As a result of the rapidly growing rate of obesity worldwide, clinicians are struggling to provide the best strategies for treating obese patients with concomitant pulmonary conditions. Obesity does not simply change the epidemiology of pulmonary disease; obesity has a profound impact on the pathophysiology of common pulmonary diseases. Obesity affects the severity of asthma, response to treatment, and is likely a major modifier of the phenotype of asthma. Obesity also appears to affect response to pathogens, and as such

This report considers the biological and behavioral mechanisms that may underlie the pathogenicity of tobacco smoke. Many Surgeon General's reports have considered research findings on mechanisms in assessing the biological plausibility of associations observed in epidemiologic studies. Mechanisms of disease are important because they may provide plausibility, which is one of the guideline criteria for assessing evidence on causation. This report specifically reviews the evidence on the potential mechanisms by which smoking causes diseases and considers whether a mechanism is

Introduction Obesity and insulin resistance are common problems and are associated with reductions in lung function, although the mechanisms remain poorly understood. These conditions may also be linked to the development of asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD); however, the effect of obesity on spirometry can make it difficult to diagnose coexisting airways disease. Some evidence suggests that the impairment of lung function associated with insulin resistance may be partly reversible with treatment. Aims 1. To compare the goodness of
