Career Summary

Biography

Associate Professor Wood leads the Nutrition programme within the Centre for Asthma and Respiratory Diseases, University of Newcastle. Dr Wood is a nutritional biochemist, who has been working in the area of nutrition and inflammation for over 15 years. Dr Wood completed her PhD in 2001, in Nutrition & Dietetics, at the University of Newcastle. Her PhD studied the relationship between antioxidants and oxidative stress in respiratory disease, in particular cystic fibrosis (CF). From 2002-2006, she undertook a postdoctoral fellowship (NHMRC Australian Training Research Fellowship), in the Respiratory Research Group, Hunter Medical Research Institute, Newcastle. Throughout this fellowship, she continued her research on dietary factors influencing respiratory diseases, in particular asthma. In 2007, she was awarded a Brawn postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Newcastle and during this time, she has extended her work to investigate the roles of dietary fat and obesity as promoters of airway inflammation. In 2010, Dr Wood took up an academic position in the School of Biomedical Sciences, University of Newcastle, in which she combines both research and teaching responsibilities.

Dr Wood has established and leads a research team, including 10 PhD students, 1 Honours student and 2 postdoctoral researchers. Dr Wood's team is investigating mechanisms by which dietary factors, including antioxidants, fatty acids, soluble fibre and obesity, affect blood lipid profiles, systemic and airway inflammation, as well as physiological outcomes such as lung function and arterial compliance. She has a strong publication record, including >85 publications, with publications in the highest impact specialty journals, eg J Allergy and Clin Immunol (IF 11), Am J Resp Crit Care Med (IF 11) and Am J Clin Nutr (IF 6). She has also produced >160 conference abstracts, 6 book chapters, 2 patents and 1 government report. In 2013, she co-edited a book on Nutrition and Physical Activity in Inflammatory Diseases. Demonstration of A/Prof Wood's contribution in this area is the recently published Asthma Management Handbook and National Asthma Council brochure series for health professionals and consumers, which included data from several of her recent publications. The excellence of Dr Wood’s research has been recognized by various prizes and awards, including 2012 University of Newcastle Vice Chancellor’s Faculty award for Research Excellence, 2011 Hunter Children’s Research Foundation Research Mentor of the Year, 2011 Nutrition Society of Australia Research Award, 2011 Nutrition Society of Australia Mid-career Travel fellowship for excellence in nutrition research, 2010 Thoracic Society of Australia and New Zealand and National Asthma Council Prize, 2009 HMRI Early Career Researcher award, 2008 NSW Young Tall Poppy award, 2008 University of Newcastle Faculty of Health Research Award, 2007 NSW Office for Science & Medical Research Postdoctoral award for Excellence in Medical Research. Dr Wood has served in various positions for the Nutrition Society of Australia (NSA), including Honorary Secretary, National Conference Programme Committee, Editorial Board and National Council. Dr Wood is a member of the Thoracic Society of Australia & New Zealand and has served as Convenor for the Asthma and Allergy Special interest group.

Research Expertise
Dr Wood is a Registered Nutritionist and Nutritional Biochemist, whose research focuses on the investigation of nutritional approaches to managing respiratory disease, such as asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). There is a strong community interest in dietary approaches to managing these diseases. However, due to a lack of good quality scientific data, there is currently no specific dietary advice available. Dr Wood’s research addresses this need, and has already made significant progress, by demonstrating that short-term dietary manipulation modifies respiratory outcomes. Dr Wood’s aim is to provide the scientific basis for developing definitive dietary advice and informing disease management guidelines for respiratory disease.

Research Themes

1. Antioxidants: Dr Wood has been leading a programme of work examining the role of antioxidants in the management of asthma, which has been supported by an NHMRC project grant. This work has shown that a high fruit and vegatable diet reduces the risk of asthma exacerbation.

2. Fatty acids: Dr Wood has demonstrated, for the first time, that dietary factors can modulate airway inflammation and bronchodilator responses. This observation forms the basis of a current NHMRC project grant, examining the effect of different types of fatty acids on different types of bronchodilators.          

3. Obesity and Inflammation: Dr Wood’s team is undertaking a series of projects looking at the contribution of obesity to airways disease, via the mechanisms of both systemic and airway inflammation. A particular focus is the role of adipose tissue macrophages in obese asthma.                   

4. Fibre and inflammation: Dr Wood is currently undertaking a clinical trial, examining the effects of soluble fibre on the gut microbiome and immune responses in asthma.

Teaching Expertise
Undergraduate Teaching: Dr Wood’s undergraduate teaching focuses on biochemical and nutritional aspects of human health and disease, which she teaches at 2nd (HUBS2207: Human Metabolism and Nutritional Biochemistry) and 3rd (HUBS3280: Advanced Nutritional Biochemistry) year levels. She also teaches clinical research skills (HUBS3410: Advanced design in research methods and HUBS3204: Professional Skills in Biomedical Science). Thus her undergraduate teaching has strong synergy with her research programme, which focuses on clinical nutrition. Dr Wood’s teaching covers a broad range of fields including biochemistry, physiology, anatomy, microbiology and immunology, to describe the complex aspects of digestion, absorption, transport, metabolism and excretion of nutrients present in foods in human health and diseased states. Her background in these disciplines and experience as a clinical researcher, allows her to give relevance to the scientific aspects of nutrition and metabolism, by considering them in a clinical context. Dr Wood holds a Graduate Certificate in Tertiary Teaching, from the University of Newcastle (2013).

Postgraduate teaching: RHD student completions: 8 PhDs, 2 Masters and 5 Honours - Current supervision: 10 PhD students (3 as primary, 7 as co-supervisor).

2015Dias CB, Phang M, Wood LG, Garg ML, 'Postprandial Lipid Responses do not Differ Following Consumption of Butter or Vegetable Oil when Consumed with Omega-3 Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids', Lipids, (2015)

Dietary saturated fat (SFA) intake has been associated with elevated blood lipid levels and increased risk for the development of chronic diseases. However, some animal studies have demonstrated that dietary SFA may not raise blood lipid levels when the diet is sufficient in omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (n-3PUFA). Therefore, in a randomised cross-over design, we investigated the postprandial effects of feeding meals rich in either SFA (butter) or vegetable oil rich in omega-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids (n-6PUFA), in conjunction with n-3PUFA, on blood lipid profiles [total cholesterol, low density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C), high density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) and triacylglycerol (TAG)] and n-3PUFA incorporation into plasma lipids over a 6-h period. The incremental area under the curve for plasma cholesterol, LDL-C, HDL-C, TAG and n-3PUFA levels over 6 h was similar in the n-6PUFA compared to SFA group. The postprandial lipemic response to saturated fat is comparable to that of n-6PUFA when consumed with n-3PUFA; however, sex-differences in response to dietary fat type are worthy of further attention.

Background: Asthma prevalence has increased in recent years, and evidence suggests that diet may be a contributing factor. Increased use of processed foods has led to a decrease in diet quality, which may be creating a pro-inflammatory environment, thereby leading to the development and/or progression of various chronic inflammatory diseases and conditions. Recently, the dietary inflammatory index (DII) has been developed and validated to assess the inflammatory potential of individual diets. Objective: This study aimed to examine the DII in subjects with asthma compared to healthy controls and to relate the DII to asthma risk, lung function and systemic inflammation. Methods: Subjects with asthma (n = 99) and healthy controls (n = 61) were recruited. Blood was collected and spirometry was performed. The DII was calculated from food frequency questionnaires administered to study subjects. Results: The mean DII score for the asthmatics was higher than the mean DII score for healthy controls (- 1.40 vs. - 1.86, P = 0.04), indicating that their diets were more pro-inflammatory. For every 1 unit increase in DII score, the odds of having asthma increased by 70% (OR: 1.70, 95% CI: 1.03, 2.14; P = 0.040). FEV1 was significantly associated with DII score (ß = - 3.44, 95% CI: - 6.50, - 0.39; P = 0.020), indicating that for every 1 unit increase in DII score, FEV1 decreased by 3.44 times. Furthermore, plasma IL-6 concentrations were positively associated with DII score (ß = 0.13, 95% CI: 0.05, 0.21; P = 0.002). Conclusion and Clinical Relevance: As assessed using the DII score, the usual diet consumed by asthmatics in this study was pro-inflammatory relative to the diet consumed by the healthy controls. The DII score was associated with increased systemic inflammation and lower lung function. Hence, consumption of pro-inflammatory foods may contribute to worse asthma status, and targeting an improvement in DII in asthmatics, as an indicator of suitable dietary intake, might be a useful strategy for improving clinical outcomes in the disease.

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The aim of the present review was to summarize recent research developments relating omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). RECENT FINDINGS: COPD is a chronic inflammatory disease; hence, omega-3 PUFAs may have beneficial effects. At present, however, there are limited data available regarding the potential for omega-3 PUFAs to be used therapeutically in COPD. In 2012-2013, several observational studies have emerged, which demonstrate that circulating omega-3 PUFA levels in COPD are inversely associated with systemic inflammation and positively associated with clinical outcomes. To date, all interventions incorporating omega-3 PUFAs in COPD have used nutrient combinations, such that the specific effects of omega-3 PUFAs cannot be determined. Three clinical trials in COPD are underway, which use therapeutic doses of omega-3 PUFAs alone, with positive results beginning to emerge in 2014. SUMMARY: Observational data support the hypothesis that omega-3 PUFAs may provide a therapeutic strategy for managing COPD. Several intervention trials using omega-3 PUFAs in COPD are underway, which will provide a substantive amount of new data to inform the field and allow evidence-based advice to be generated for patients with COPD in the near future.

Effective strategies are required to reduce the prevalence of overweight and obesity; however, the effectiveness of current weight loss programmes is variable. One contributing factor may be the difference in weight loss success between men and women. A systematic review was conducted to determine whether the effectiveness of weight loss interventions differs between men and women. Randomized controlled trials published up until March 2014 were included. Effect sizes (Hedges' g) were used to examine the difference in weight outcomes between men and women. A total of 58 studies met the eligibility criteria with 49 studies of higher quality included in the final data synthesis. Eleven studies that directly compared weight loss in men and women reported a significant sex difference. Ten of these reported that men lost more weight than women; however, women also lost a significant amount of weight. Analysis of effect sizes found small differences in weight loss favouring men for both diet (g=0.489) and diet plus exercise (g=0.240) interventions. There is little evidence from this review to indicate that men and women should adopt different weight loss strategies. Current evidence supports moderate energy restriction in combination with exercise for weight loss in both men and women.

Objective: To examine pre-conception dietary patterns in pregnant asthmatic women and to identify associations between maternal diet and asthma control during pregnancy. Design: Cross-sectional study. Pre-conception food frequency data were collected retrospectively. Asthma control was assessed using the Global Initiative for Asthma guidelines. Dietary patterns were derived using factor analysis. Binary logistic regression analyses were used to test the association between uncontrolled asthma and each dietary pattern (Z-score), with values presented as odds ratio and 95 % confidence interval. Setting: Antenatal clinic in a tertiary hospital, Adelaide, Australia, May 2009¿July 2013. Subjects: One hundred and fifty-eight asthmatic pregnant women. Results: Three dietary patterns were identified: (i) ¿high protein/fruit¿ (strong food group loadings for fish, meat, chicken, fruit); (ii) ¿high fat/sugar/takeaway¿ (takeaway foods, crisps, refined grains); and (iii) ¿vegetarian-type¿ (vegetables, fruit, soya milk, whole grains). A 1 sd increase in score on the high fat/sugar/takeaway pattern was associated with increased likelihood of uncontrolled asthma (adjusted OR=1·54; 95 % CI 1·07, 2·23; P=0·022). Women with uncontrolled asthma (n 115) had higher energy-adjusted intakes of saturated fat, monounsaturated fat, carbohydrate, sugar and fibre compared with women with controlled asthma (n 43, all P=0·05). Conclusions: Pre-pregnancy dietary patterns may influence maternal asthma control. Our work highlights the importance of achieving a healthy diet before pregnancy that is low in saturated fat, sugar and takeaway foods, and therefore higher in lean meats, poultry and fish, as well as fruits, vegetables and whole grains. A healthy dietary pattern should be encouraged in all asthmatic women who are of childbearing age, and should additionally be promoted before pregnancy and beyond.

Background Although exercise has multiple health benefits, relatively little attention has been paid to its potential therapeutic effects in those with asthma. Objective To examine the effects of acute exercise on inflammation in physically inactive and active adults with asthma. Methods Fourteen adults with asthma (n = 6 physically inactive, n = 8 physically active) completed (1) 30 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise on a treadmill and (2) 30 minutes of rest in random order, with 4 weeks between sessions. Exhaled nitric oxide (eNO) was measured before and after the intervention (0, 0.5, 1, 2, 4, and 24 hours). Blood inflammatory mediators were measured before and after the intervention (0, 2, and 24 hours). Results Physically inactive participants had a significant decrease in eNO 4 hours after exercise (-4.8 ppb, -6.4 to -0.5 ppb, P =.028), which was not observed in physically active participants (P =.362). Interluekin-1 receptor antagonist increased in the physically inactive group 2 hours after exercise, with this increase strongly correlated with the decrease in eNO at 4 hours (R = -0.685, P =.007) and 24 hours (R = -0.659, P =.014) after exercise. Interleukin-6 was increased significantly 2 hours after exercise in physically inactive participants. Blood neutrophils and nuclear factor erythroid 2-like 2 gene expression were increased 2 hours after exercise in the overall cohort. Conclusion This study demonstrates that acute moderate-intensity exercise is associated with decreased eNO in physically inactive adults with asthma and suggests that interluekin-1 receptor antagonist could have a role in mediating this effect. The attenuated response in physically active participants might be due to the sustained anti-inflammatory effects of exercise training. Future studies should investigate the impact of exercise intensity and exercise training on airway inflammation in those with asthma.

The impact of a polyunsaturated fatty acid, arachidonic acid (AA), on membrane fluidity of epithelial cells and subsequent modulation of the drug transport was investigated. Membrane fluidity was assessed using molecular force microscopy. Calu-3 human bronchial epithelial cells were cultured on Transwell® inserts and the cell stiffness was assessed in the absence of fatty acids or in the presence of 30 µM AA. The morphology of the epithelial cells was distinctly different when AA was present, with the cell monolayer becoming more uniform. Furthermore the cell stiffness and variation in stiffness was lower in the presence of AA. In the fat-free medium, the median cell stiffness was 9.1 kPa which dropped to 2.1 kPa following exposure to AA. To further study this, transport of a common ß2-agonist, salbutamol sulphate (SS) was measured in the presence of AA and in a fat free medium. The transport of SS was significantly higher when AA was present (0.61 ± 0.09 µg versus 0.11 ± 0.003 µg with and without AA respectively). It was evidenced that AA play a vital role in cell membrane fluidity and drug transport. This finding highlights the significance of the dietary fatty acids in transport and consequentially effectiveness of medications used to treat pulmonary diseases such as asthma. This journal is

Background: Asthma is the most prevalent chronic disease to complicate pregnancies worldwide, affecting around 12% of pregnant women in Australia. Oxidative stress and inflammation manifest during pregnancy; however asthma in pregnancies further intensifies oxidative stress. Consumption of antioxidant-rich foods has been shown to be beneficial for asthma control in non-pregnant asthmatic adults. It has not been investigated whether antioxidant-rich foods can improve the elevated oxidative stress that occurs with asthma in pregnancy, thereby improving asthma control. The primary aim of this study is to determine whether increased consumption of antioxidant-rich foods for 12 weeks will improve maternal asthma control, compared to standard dietary intake during pregnancy.Methods/design: A 12 week, parallel randomized controlled trial will be conducted. One hundred and sixty eight pregnant women with mild, moderate, or severe asthma, currently using inhaled corticosteroids, and with poor diet quality, will be recruited at approximately12 weeks gestation. Following a 4 week run-in period, women will be randomized to either a 12 week antioxidant intervention (increased consumption of antioxidant-rich foods (=5 servings/day vegetables, =2 servings/day fruit, =8 1-Feb servings/day grains (mostly wholegrains), 3-4 serving/week lean meat) or standard pregnancy care. The primary outcome is asthma control score (decrease of 0.5, the minimally clinically significant change). Secondary outcomes include plasma antioxidants, markers of oxidative stress, and time to, and number of, exacerbations. With two-tailed t-tests at 80% power, a sample size of 52 completions per group is required. Allowing for a 78% retention including a 20% removal of women from the analysis due to non-compliance, we will recruit 168 women.Discussion: It is expected that this 12 week study will improve asthma control. This is significant because asthma is the most prevalent condition to complicate pregnancies and contributes to poor maternal, neonatal and infant health outcomes. Our research will provide the first evidence to show that, in pregnancy, consumption of antioxidant-rich foods is a key modifier of clinical asthma status. This research is crucial for contributing to the evidence base to inform future guidelines given existing clinical and research gaps.Trial registration: ACTRN12613000301763. © 2014 Grieger et al.; licensee BioMed Central Ltd.

Background:Whether body composition is associated with lung function in asthmatic children has not been investigated. This study aimed to primarily investigate whether BMI z-score and body composition were associated with respiratory function in asthmatic children.Methods:In a cross-sectional study, male (n = 27; mean age: 11.9 y (SD: 2.3)) and female (n = 21; mean age: 13.6 y (SD: 2.2)) asthmatic children underwent clinical assessment.Results:BMI z-score was associated with forced expiratory volume in 1 s (FEV 1; r = 0.458), forced vital capacity (FVC; r = 0.477), and total lung capacity (TLC; r = 0.451) in males only (P < 0.05). Total lean mass was associated with FEV 1 (r = 0.655), FVC (r = 0.562), and TLC (r = 0.635) in males, as was thoracic lean mass (FEV 1 (r = 0.573), FVC (r = 0.526), and TLC (r = 0.497); P < 0.05). TLC was associated with total (r = 0.522) and thoracic (r = 0.532) lean mass in females (P < 0.05). Fat mass was not associated with lung function in this group.Conclusion:Lean mass, not fat mass, is associated with lung function in children with asthma. The positive association between BMI z-score and respiratory function in male children is driven by lean mass. Although body weight can be easily monitored in the clinical setting, body composition can provide important information. Future research exploring lean mass and lung function associations could inform future interventions. Copyright © 2014 International Pediatric Research Foundation, Inc.

Consumption of foods rich in saturated fatty acids (SFA) has often been associated with elevated blood lipid levels and consequently with risk for chronic diseases, including coronary heart disease. However, epidemiological and interventional studies on this topic are contradictory. While some studies have established a positive link, other studies have failed to show a significant association between saturated fat consumption and blood lipid levels, and others have even found an inverse association. Moreover, studies using animal models have demonstrated that dietary saturated fats raise blood lipid (cholesterol and triglycerides) levels only when the diet is deficient in omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (n-3PUFA). The n-3PUFA are known for their potential in the management of hyperlipidaemia for the prevention of coronary heart disease, as well as for their anti-arrhythmic, anti-aggregatory and anti-inflammatory potential. We believe that with an adequate consumption of n-3PUFA dietary saturated fat may not result in elevated blood lipid levels. Therefore, we critically evaluated the literature regarding saturated fat and blood lipid level, with an emphasis on the role of n-3PUFA on this relationship. Evidence from animal studies and few clinical trials lead to the hypothesis that there are beneficial or neutral effects of saturated fatty acids when combined with recommended levels of n-3PUFA in the diet. However, an intervention focusing on the background fat when the volunteers' diet is supplemented with n-3PUFA is yet to be done. Proving the authenticity of this hypothesis would mean a substantial change in public health messages regarding saturated fats and their health effects; and also a change in the strategies related to prevention of chronic cardiac and artery diseases. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd.

Background: Severe asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are chronic inflammatory airway diseases in which the mechanisms are not fully understood. A disintegrin and metalloproteinase domain 8 (ADAM8) is an enzyme expressed on most leucocytes and may be important for facilitating leucocyte migration in respiratory disease. Objective: To investigate ADAM8 mRNA and protein expression in asthma and COPD and its relationship between asthma severity and inflammatory phenotypes. Methods: Induced sputum was collected from 113 subjects with asthma (severe n = 31, uncontrolled n = 39 and controlled n = 35), 20 subjects with COPD and 21 healthy controls. Sputum ADAM8 mRNA expression was measured by qPCR, and soluble ADAM8 (sADAM8) protein was measured in the sputum supernatant by validated ELISA. Results: ADAM8 mRNA correlated with ADAM8 protein levels (r = 0.27, P < 0.01). ADAM8 mRNA (P = 0.004) and sADAM8 protein (P = 0.014) levels were significantly higher in both asthma and COPD compared with healthy controls. ADAM8 mRNA (P = 0.035) and sADAM8 protein (P = 0.002) levels were significantly higher in severe asthma compared with controlled asthma. Total inflammatory cell count (P < 0.01) and neutrophils (P < 0.01) were also elevated in severe asthmatic sputum. Although ADAM8 mRNA was significantly higher in eosinophilic and neutrophilic asthma (P < 0.001), sADAM8 did not differ between asthma inflammatory phenotypes. ADAM8 expression positively correlated with sputum total cell count and sputum neutrophils. Conclusions and Clinical Relevance: ADAM8 expression is increased in both severe asthma and COPD and associated with sputum total cell count and neutrophils. ADAM8 may facilitate neutrophil migration to the airways in severe asthma and COPD. © 2013 John Wiley & Sons Ltd.

Asthma is a chronic inflammatory disorder of the airways. The inflammatory response in asthma is heterogeneous. Allergen specific responses lead to activation of the acquired immune system, via a predominantly IL-5 mediated, eosinophilic pathway. Stimuli such as viruses and bacteria activate the innate immune system, via a predominantly IL-8 mediated, neutrophilic pathway. Asthma has also been demonstrated to involve a systemic inflammatory component. Glucocorticoids are the predominant pharmacological treatment used to control inflammation in asthma. However, compliance with medications can be compromised due to patient concerns about side effects. Hence dietary interventions that target the inflammatory response in asthma have great potential. Various aspects of dietary intake are known to modulate inflammation. Saturated fatty acids can induce an inflammatory response via activation of pattern recognition receptors. Omega-3 fatty acids can be anti-inflammatory, via mechanisms such as modification of eicosanoid production. Antioxidants can have anti-inflammatory effects as they scavenge free radicals, preventing activation of transcription factors including NF-¿B. Chronic excess energy intake can lead to obesity, which augments inflammation due to the release of inflammatory mediators by adipose tissue. Here we review the role of these dietary components in asthma. © 2014 Bentham Science Publishers.

Background Airway inflammation is associated with asthma exacerbation risk, treatment response, and disease mechanisms. Objective This study aimed to identify and validate a sputum gene expression signature that discriminates asthma inflammatory phenotypes. Methods An asthma phenotype biomarker discovery study generated gene expression profiles from induced sputum of 47 asthmatic patients. A clinical validation study (n = 59 asthmatic patients) confirmed differential expression of key genes. A 6-gene signature was identified and evaluated for reproducibility (n = 30 asthmatic patients and n = 20 control subjects) and prediction of inhaled corticosteroid (ICS) response (n = 71 asthmatic patients). Receiver operating characteristic curves were calculated, and area under the curve (AUC) values were reported. Results From 277 differentially expressed genes between asthma inflammatory phenotypes, we identified 23 genes that showed highly significant differential expression in both the discovery and validation populations. A signature of 6 genes, including Charcot-Leydon crystal protein (CLC); carboxypeptidase A3 (CPA3); deoxyribonuclease I-like 3 (DNASE1L3); IL-1ß (IL1B); alkaline phosphatase, tissue-nonspecific isozyme (ALPL); and chemokine (C-X-C motif) receptor 2 (CXCR2), was reproducible and could significantly (P <.0001) discriminate eosinophilic asthma from other phenotypes, including patients with noneosinophilic asthma (AUC, 89.6%), paucigranulocytic asthma (AUC, 92.6%), or neutrophilic asthma (AUC, 91.4%) and healthy control subjects (AUC, 97.6%), as well as discriminating patients with neutrophilic asthma from those with paucigranulocytic asthma (AUC, 85.7%) and healthy control subjects (AUC, 90.8). The 6-gene signature predicted ICS response (>12% change in FEV1; AUC, 91.5%). ICS treatment reduced the expression of CLC, CPA3, and DNASE1L3 in patients with eosinophilic asthma. Conclusions A sputum gene expression signature of 6 biomarkers reproducibly and significantly discriminates inflammatory phenotypes of asthma and predicts ICS treatment response. This signature has the potential to become a useful diagnostic tool to assist in the clinical diagnosis and management of asthma. © 2013 American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology.

The complication of asthma during pregnancy is associated with a number of poor outcomes for the mother and fetus. This may be partially driven by increased oxidative stress induced by the combination of asthma and pregnancy. Asthma is a chronic inflammatory disease of the airways associated with systemic inflammation and oxidative stress, which contributes to worsening asthma symptoms. Pregnancy alone also intensifies oxidative stress through the systemic generation of excess reactive oxidative species (ROS). Antioxidants combat the damaging effects of ROS; yet antioxidant defenses are reduced in asthma. Diet and nutrition have been postulated as potential factors to combat the damaging effects of asthma. In particular, dietary antioxidants may play a role in alleviating the heightened oxidative stress in asthma. Although there are some observational and interventional studies that have shown protective effects of antioxidants in asthma, assessment of antioxidants in pregnancy are limited and there are no antioxidant intervention studies in asthmatic pregnancies on asthma outcomes. The aims of this paper are to (i) review the relationships between oxidative stress and dietary antioxidants in adults with asthma and asthma during pregnancy, and (ii) provide the rationale for which dietary management strategies, specifically increased dietary antioxidants, might positively impact maternal asthma outcomes. Improving asthma control through a holistic antioxidant dietary approach might be valuable in reducing asthma exacerbations and improving asthma management during pregnancy, subsequently impacting perinatal health. © 2013 by the authors; licensee MDPI, Basel, Switzerland.

Obesity is now recognised as a worldwide epidemic. The recent International Association for the Study of Obesity/International Obesity Taskforce (IASO/IOTF) analysis estimates that approximately 1.0 billion adults are currently overweight and a further 475 million are obese. Obesity has huge psychosocial impact with obese children and adolescents facing discrimination and stigmatization in many areas of their lives leading to body dissatisfaction, low self-esteem and depression. Indeed, obesity is recognised as an important risk factor for the development of several chronic diseases such as hypertension, cancer, asthma and metabolic syndrome. Chronic low grade systemic inflammation is considered as a hallmark of obesity and may possibly explain the link between obesity and chronic disease, in particular the increased incidence, prevalence and severity of asthma in obese individuals. There is now strong evidence for infiltration of immune and inflammatory cells into adipose tissue that drives systemic inflammation and subsequent end organ damage. In addition to adipocytes, the key adipose tissue resident immune cells are macrophages and mast cells. Immunometabolism, as an emerging field of investigation, explores the pivotal role of these immune cells in translating immunological changes to metabolic effects in obesity. Abundance of free fatty acids, along with other inflammatory cytokines shift the balance of metabolic homeostasis to pro-inflammatory status by influencing the development of inflammatory cell lineage, which, further exhibits distinct functional phenotypes. There is emerging evidence for macrophage activation and functional polarization of an anti-inflammatory M2 phenotype towards a pro-inflammatory M1 phenotype of macrophages in obese adipose tissue. Similarly, studies in both obese humans and murine models reveal the pathognomic presence of an increased number of mast cells in visceral adipose tissue. These suggest a possible contribution of mast cells to the unique metabolome of obese asthma. This review examines proposed multilevel interactions between metabolic and immune systems in obese asthmatics that underlie the negative effects of obesity and may offer significant therapeutic promise. © 2013 by the authors; licensee MDPI, Basel, Switzerland.

Tomatoes are the richest source of lycopene, a potent antioxidant. Tomato products improve antioxidant defences and reduce the risk of inflammatory diseases, at least partly, due to the presence of lycopene. Lycopene, as an anti-inflammatory agent, prevents the production of inflammatory cytokines. Obesity is a chronic inflammatory condition in which the increased level of body fat leads to an increase in circulating inflammatory mediators. We hypothesised that the consumption of a lycopene-rich food would reduce inflammation in people who are overweight or obese. A total of 106 overweight or obese female students of the Tehran University of Medical Sciences were enrolled and randomly allocated to an intervention group (n 53) or a control group (n 53) consuming 330 ml/d of tomato juice or water, respectively, for 20 d. At baseline and day 20, serum concentrations of IL-6, IL-8, high-sensitivity C-reactive protein and TNF-a were analysed by ELISA and compared between the groups. Serum concentrations of IL-8 and TNF-a decreased significantly in the intervention group compared with the control group and with baseline. Subgroup analysis indicated that this effect was confined to subjects who were overweight. Among obese subjects, serum IL-6 concentration was decreased in the intervention group compared with the control group, with no differences in IL-8 and TNF-a observed. Tomato juice reduces inflammation in overweight and obese females. Thus, increasing tomato intake may provide a useful approach for reducing the risk of inflammatory diseases such as CVD and diabetes, which are associated with obesity. Copyright © 2012 The Authors.
