Bronchial thermoplasty in oral steroid-dependent (high dose certainly >10 mg/day) asthmatics
What factors predict exacerbations in asthma and can they be prevented?
What are the features of airway remodeling about which we consistently agree and in whom are they most likely to occur?
• Clinical recommendations and associated implementation tools are often incorporated into electronic medical records (EMRs). Currently there is no standard EMR format and therefore it is difficult... more »
Considering the fact that Blacks bear a disproportionate degree of asthma morbidity and mortality, should treatment recommendations be different for Blacks vs. Caucasians?
Therapies shown to reduce disease severity in patients with a specific disease are obvious, but not the only, candidates for a prevention trial in populations at high risk for prevalent diseases (such as heart failure, diabetes, COPD, asthma in children).... more »
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
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?
Need to develop and integrate biomarkers of asthma into phenotype/endotype-driven asthma management algorithms
There are lots of exercise regimens for COPD, but none that I can find for asthmatics
Molecular mechanism controlling airway hypersensitivity and remodeling
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?
