CPEU Course Description

Asthma is a common, chronic inflammatory disease of the airways for which the microbiomes of the lungs and gut contribute to its pathogenesis.  Although those living in developed countries are exposed to fewer and less diverse microorganisms compared with the inhabitants of developing countries, they are experiencing an increase in the incidence of asthma and allergies.  This CPEU course discusses phenotypes of asthma with respect to genetics, natural history, pathobiology, and physiology; gut and lung microbiomes of humans and their association with the pathogenesis of allergy and asthma; recommendations for management and therapy for allergic diseases and asthma in women during pregnancy and/or lactation; risk factors and preventive measures for mothers and their children; the relationship between priori selected nutrients and asthma health; the effects of choline supplementation in elderly asthmatics; the impact of climate change on respiratory health; and the allergens that are most frequently associated with severe, refractory, or life threatening asthma.
