Insights into Asthma, And Maybe the Hygiene Hypothesis
Scientists have reported "a detailed molecular circuit of how asthma is initiated and maintained," David Corry told BioWorld Today. "And that in turn helps us think in fundamentally different ways about new therapeutic approaches" to allergic asthma, which accounts for more than half of all asthma and affects nearly 5 percent of the population. Corry is at the Baylor College of Medicine and the corresponding author of the paper detailing the findings, which appeared in the Aug. 16, 2013, issue of Science.
