Features of Bronchial Asthma in Children with Overweight and Obesity

О.P. Volosovets, S.P. Kryvopustov, M.T. Makukha, A.V. Kupkina


The article deals with the problem of comorbi­dity of bronchial asthma in children with overweight and obesity. The basic pathogenetic mechanisms of correlation between bronchial asthma and overweight and obesity are described. The attention is focused on the role of neutrophilic inflammation in the pathogenesis of bronchial asthma in these patients.
