Integrate real time data acquired from or through mobile health care applications (apps) and devices into asthma and allergy management.
Prospective studies on acetaminophen and asthma - randomized/controlled/adequately powered - use in pregnancy and asthma development in utero, use in early childhood
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
Adequately powered randomized vitD trials - as primary prevention, and after asthma diagnosis
How does the microbiome modulate lung function and asthma control?
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?
What factors predict exacerbations in asthma and can they be prevented?
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: Asthma appears to be due to heterogenous etiologies. To better characterize the various phenotypes and potential etiologies, it would be important to create more epidemiologic and biomarker focused databases, which could ...more »
Bronchial thermoplasty in oral steroid-dependent (high dose certainly >10 mg/day) asthmatics
A large gap in healthcare is nonadherence to proven effective treatments. One important area for reducing morbidity, mortality and cost for patients with chronic diseases that require frequent home, non-healthcare assisted, administration of treatment is the promotion of adherence to treatment recommendations.
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 »
Asthma-COPD overlap syndrome is common and associated with increased morbidity and greater healthcare costs. However, ACOS patients are usually excluded from studies of either disease. There is a compelling need for research in order to define objective diagnostic criteria for ACOS.
