2015 VAM: 2303 - Lessons on Asthma from the Inner City: Pathogenesis, Phenotype, Treatment, and Prevention

This recording discusses how asthma continues to be a major illness for patients of all ages and locations. In US inner cities, asthma has an even greater impact as its prevalence, morbidity and mortality are higher than elsewhere. A major unmet gap in asthma is the need to understand the potentially unique needs and mechanisms of asthma in the inner city, to advance effective treatment for this high risk group, and to develop treatment approaches to not only improve control but to develop concepts for disease prevention.
