Bronchial asthma is an ever increasing epidemic and it has been found that morbidity of asthma patients is increased by its exacerbations so early treatment of these patients is helpful in prevention of its exacerbations and complications4.
Overall, COPD patients with blood eosinophil counts of >150 cells/L at study entry or >300 cells/L within the past year treated with add-on 100mg mepolizumab showed a consistent 1820% reduction in the primary endpoint of annual rate of moderate and severe exacerbations.
In an analysis of children with asthma, those who had been breastfed had a 45% lower risk of asthma exacerbations later in life compared with children who had not been breastfed.
The disease is intermingled with times of exacerbations that have necessary results for patients and health care providers.
The rationale for this change is that LABA/LAMAs give greater bronchodilation compared with LABA/ICS, and one study showed a decreased rate of exacerbations compared to LABA/ICS in patients with a history of exacerbations.
The purpose of this study is to assess exacerbation of COPD in multiple severity groups as per GOLD 2013 criteria and to find out which of the three multidimensional assessment systems BODE, DOSE or ADO index is better in predicting exacerbations.
Some experts have suggested that the observational studies reporting a link between acetaminophen and asthma exacerbations may have been flawed by "confounding by indication," because children with asthma have more symptomatic respiratory infections than do those without asthma and use more acetaminophen for fever and malaise.

Mucolytic agents have an important role in managing COPD exacerbations because increased mucus secretions causes coughing and the mucus plugs can obstruct airways and lead to increased death.
The objectives of the present study were to evaluate the prevalence of biochemical exacerbation in renal transplant patients chronically infected with HBV and to evaluate the factors related to its occurrence.
The severity of the exacerbations was based on the Global Initiative for Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease criteria.
