AoU Research Priorities Use Cases

Can pollen allergies be isolated by genetics, confirmed by allergy testing, and exposure be tracked to limit asthma attacks?

A cohort of asthma patients (who believe they have a pollen allergy) would undergo genetic testing to identify genetic markers. Those patients would undergo blood and skin allergy testing to confirm the allergy, and then the patients would be utilize a mobile monitor to track the weather and environmental exposures (esp. pollen) that are causal to asthma incidences. With a more complete picture of pollen allergen impacts on patients they would be able to limit the negative health outcomes.

The remaining questions allow you to outline in more detail the information needed to address your research question. The series of questions allow up to five entries. If you have more than five entries, please try to prioritize them and enter the remainder in the final field. When done, click Submit at the bottom. No
