Modeling asthma-related utilization


In the current socioeconomic climate, evaluating healthcare utilization in the context of chronic disease outcomes and intervention is vital. Think Framingham. Wu et al. in this month’s issue (J Allergy Clin Immunol 2012;130:1065-1070) step up to this challenge for asthma, designing and testing a prediction model that draws on data from the Childhood Asthma Management Program (CAMP). The authors use data on changes in prebronchodilator FEV1 % predicted in subjects treated with ICS to simulate prediction of hospitalization, ED visits, and oral CS therapy associated with exacerbations. The simulated results are then compared with the actual data from CAMP to assess the model’s reliability.

Wu et al. report remarkable consistency between the simulation predictions and the CAMP data. As one example, their model predicted a 48% decrease in hospitalizations with ICS therapy compared to placebo. The observed decrease in the CAMP data was 49%. The authors comment that further testing with data not involved in developing the model is required and they invite other asthma investigators to collaborate.

    1. just got diagnosed with HSV1, and reading this actually made me feel like crawling and crying like a baby. The outbreak I have right now is genital and in my throat and mouth, I talked to the doctor who did the blood test on me and said over time that it would eventually get much better. She said that what I’m having is a massive outbreak and is unusual, but that it may be due to the fact that I stressed myself out over it so much. She also told me even though I have it in the genital area that It doesn't mean that I needed “private to private” contact to acquire it. But this did make me feel a whole lot better about the whole situation. For anyone else to have HSV1 after all this stress and pains am passing and the doctor saying all such of crap i was not convince by his Theory so i decided to go on the internet and saw this comments by Rose who testify about how she get cured by root and herbs by Dr AZUKA, when i first bump into it i didn't believe the comments at first so i decided to confront her on Facebook and really know what and how did it work because my doctor told me there is no cure for herpes, so i really contacted DR AZUKA, he responded in A minute the only thing he ever ask for was just the items of which he will use to prepare for the herbs, after all this he send the herbs through courier Services, within a week i was cure just like that without no struggle or stress, if you are out there in need of cure contact him with his email address: Dr.azukasolutionhome@gmail.com OR reach him on his mobile phone +2348132777335

  8. I am John Danilla from UK( northern ireland), i want to share a
    testimony on how a powerful spell caster cured my HIV disease, i was
    diagnosed of this disease, in the year 2009, last week i saw a testimony on
    Dr.Akioya on how he cured an HIV patient, so i contacted him through phone
    call and he asked me to email him, which idid, so he told me that all my
    problems is over and then he decided to do an healing spell spell for me so
    after he finished it, he told me to wait for just 24 hours and then i
    should go for a test, so i really did as he had said, so my greatest
    surprised when i went to the hospital to go for an HIV test, the Medical
    doctor diagnosed that, i am now HIV negetative at first i was amazed and
    now i have come to realise that this spell caster Dr. Akioya is a very
    powerful one and a real spell caster. So viewers of this should please join
    me in my celebration for i am the happiest man on earth today and if you
    want to contact him, you can do this via his email

  9. Greetings to the general public, i want to inform the public how i was
    cured of HERPES Simplex Virus by a Doctor called muthuka. i visited
    different hospital but they gave me list of drugs like Famvir, Zovirax, and
    Valtrex which is very expensive to treat the symptoms and never cured me. I
    was browsing through the Internet searching for remedy on HERPES and i saw
    comment of people talking about how Dr muthuka cured them. I Was scared
    because i never believed in the Internet but i was convince to give him a
    try because i was having no hope of been cured of HERPES so i decided to
    contact him on his email that was listed on the comment (muthukaherbalhome@gmail.com. ) i searched his email on net and i saw a lot
    of people testifying about his goodness. when i contacted him he gave me
    hope and send a Herbal medicine to me that i took and it seriously worked
    for me, am a free person now without problem, my HERPES result came out
    negative. I pray for you Dr.muthuka God will give you everlasting life, you
    shall not die before your time for being a sincere and great man. Am so
    happy, you can also contact him if you have any problem you can email him
    on this email muthukaherbalhome@gmail.com or call +2347036143964 or call +2348105817441 okay thank

  10. I am here to testify about a great herbal spell caster called Dr.ezomo who
    helped me cure my HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS . I was infected with HERPES SIMPLEX
    VIRUS in 2015, i went to many hospitals for cure but there was no solution,
    so I was thinking how can I get a solution out so that my body can be okay.
    So One day I went on line on the Internet to know more clue about the
    Herpes Simplex Virus i came across a review of a lady saying that she got
    her Herpes Simplex Virus cured by A great herbal spell caster Called Dr.
    ezomo. And she also went as far to drop an email address and including Dr.
    Ezomo telephone number and advise anyone to contact Dr. ezomo for any kind
    of help. So i gave a try by contacting him . his email and explain my
    problem to him. He told me all the things I need to do and also give me
    instructions to take, which I followed properly. Before I knew what is
    happening after two weeks the HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS that was in my body got
    vanished . so if you are also heart broken by any deadly diseases like
    HERPES, HIV, shingles, low sperm count, HPV, Cancer, Hepatitis B, etc this
    great man is extremely the best in which I have seen and applauds and if
    you also need a help in curing any kind of disease, you can also email him
    via: dr.ezomorootandherbals@gmail.com or whapps number +2349069171173
    He can also cure so many sickness
