Inner City Asthma consortium 3 (ICAC3)

-
Investigator: Susan Lynch, PhD
Sponsor: University of Wisconsin System

Location(s): United States

Description

ICAC's goal is to include further development of cockroach allergen immunotherapy and consideration of new allergen immunotherapies; for example to mouse allergens; the development and execution of clinical and mechanistic studies targeted to inner-city Asthma phenotypes, and interventions designed to prevent the incidence of Asthma or its progression. In addition, the URECA birth cohort study will be continued to the end of the grant, when the participants will range from 14 to 16 years of age, with the goal to provide information on the immunologic basis of late childhood and adolescence-onset Asthma, as well as the remission of Asthma during the same years.
