For hundreds of years, people have observed that asthma severity often worsens in the nighttime. One longstanding question has been to what degree the body’s internal circadian clock — as opposed to behaviors, such as sleep and physical activities — contributes to the worsening of asthma severity.

Understanding the mechanisms that influence asthma severity could have important implications for treating asthma.
