How does the microbiome modulate lung function and asthma control?
Need to develop and integrate biomarkers of asthma into phenotype/endotype-driven asthma management algorithms
As the current chair of the Research and Training Division, I would like to convey that the AAAAI membership would like the NHLBI to consider the following in the development of its strategic plan: Given the development of specific biologic therapy for asthma, what are the biomarkers and predictors of response that will allow clinicians to choose the best therapeutic combination of medications (biologic and otherwise) ...more »
What are the most effective methods to reduce asthma disparities in low income children?
What are the strategies to improve the use of evidence-based clinical practice recommendations and thereby increase the quality of care and improve outcomes for people with asthma? • Lack of provider awareness, knowledge, agreement, and/or self-efficacy in using the guidelines • Inconsistent use of guidelines-based asthma care in clinical practice. • Scarce/limited resources and limited access to target audiences. • ...more »
Molecular mechanism controlling airway hypersensitivity and remodeling
What options for therapy for severe asthma are available for the non-eosinophilic phenotype?
How can we improve communication between schools and clinicians in order to develop support systems for children with severe asthma with health disparities?
How can we eliminate inefficiency in medical communication to better serve children with severe asthma?
Are there biomarkers or phenotypic characteristics that will allow us to identify the patients with asthma who will experience a more rapid decline in lung function?
Does the aggressive treatment of asthma prevent the developement of acute chest syndrome (ACS) and vaso-occlusive syndrome (VOS) in patients with sickle cell disease (SCD)?
Develop simplified agressive acute asthma treatment protocol and promote the implementation for primary care, ED, Urgent care, Internists, Pediatricians, Allergists, Pulmonologists, and Families. Goal is to prevent hospitalization of children and adults with asthma. For example: 3 cycles of Duoneb and Albuterol, monitoring pulsoximetry, with oral / IM Dexamethasone dosage. Also initiation of controller medication at ...more »
What factors predict exacerbations in asthma and can they be prevented?
Integrate real time data acquired from or through mobile health care applications (apps) and devices into asthma and allergy management.
More evidence-based, scientifically proven interventions to ensure that scientific information is translated into clinical and public health practices and programs to reduce the burden of asthma and allergies on individuals, families and society
Do asthmatics and/or those at risk for developing asthma benefit from oral Magnesium supplementation?
