Asthma, Allergies, & Eczema

Course Description & Information:

  • Together, Asthma, Allergic Rhinitis and Eczema (also known as Atopic Dermatitis) make up what is known as the Atopic Triad. These conditions have in common that they are driven by Type-I Hypersensitivity (IgE antibody-mediated) reactions. This presentation explores the common and distinctive pathophysiological characteristics of the three conditions, the major immune components involved, and the rationale for current treatment methods. Newer therapeutic approaches will also be addressed.
