Immune Response in Asthma

Immune Response in Asthma

Asthma is a condition where people experience symptoms of wheezing and shortness of breath in
response to exposures such as allergens and exercise. There are many people who have allergies
to substances in the environment such as pollen or grasses, but only some of the people who have
allergies developed asthma. The purpose of this study is to find out more about the underlying
causes of asthma, particularly the reasons why some people have environmental allergies and do
not have asthma, while other people with environmental allergies develop asthma. We would
like to find out more about the differences in the bronchial tubes of the lungs between people
with and without asthma to explain why this condition occurs.
