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... more »
