Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:

1. Describe novel targets for potential asthma therapeutics, and why they might not work.

2. Assess whether asthma is primarily and disease of the adaptive immune system acting through T and B lymphocytes or if it is an intrinsic disease of epigentically-differentiated lung tissue.

3. Recognize that chronic rhinosinusitis, at least in its eosinophilic manifestations, is a lifelong disease that, once established, will persist independent of adaptive immune responses.

4. Recognize that chronic rhinosinusitis comprises numerous distinct entities, each with its own pathogenic mechanism, and be able to incorporate this knowledge into disease-specific treatment approaches.

5. Describe the mechanism and management of worrisome drug eruptions.

6. Explain the role history, skin testing, graded challenge and desensitization play in the management of patients with a history of allergy to non-penicillin antibiotics.

7. Recognize recent advances in food allergy treatment.

8. Understand the results and conclusions from the LEAP study.
