Description
Asthma is a disorder of breathing characterized by widespread narrowing of airways within the lung. The main symptom is shortness of breath. A major feature of asthma is the reversibility of the airway narrowing and, consequently, the breathlessness. This variability in the obstruction may occur spontaneously or in response to treatment.

Cause

There is a strong familial association of asthma and a great deal of interest in the genetic basis of the condition. Several genes may be associated with the condition of atopy in which subjects have a predisposition to form antibodies of the IgE class against allergens they encounter, especially inhaled allergens. This leads to allergic rhinitis (often manifest as hayfever), to asthma and eczema.

The allergic response in the lining of the airway leads to an inflammatory reaction. Many cells are involved in this inflammatory process, including Lymphocytes, eosinophils, neutrophils and mast cells. The cells are attracted and controlled by a complex system of inflammatory mediators. The inflamed airway wall produced in this process is then sensitive to further allergic stimuli or to nonspecific challenges such as dust, smoke or drying from the increased respiration during exercise. Recognition of this inflammation has concentrated attention on anti-inflammatory aspects of treatment.
Continued inflammation with poor control of asthma can result in permanent damage to the airway wall such that reversibility is reduced and airway narrowing becomes permanent. Appropriate anti-inflammatory therapy may help to prevent this damage.

Many allergens can be important triggers of asthma. House-dust mite, grass pollen and animal dander are the commonest problems. Occupational factors such as grain dusts, hard-metals fumes and chemicals in the plastic and paint industry are important in some adults. Viral infections are another common trigger.

The prevalence of asthma appears to be on the increase in most countries. Several factors have been linked to this increase. Most important may be the vulnerability of the immature immune system in infants. High exposure to allergens such as house-dust mite early in life may prime the immune system while reduced exposure to common viral infections may delay the maturation of the immune system. In addition, maternal smoking in pregnancy and infancy increases the risk.
