Rethinking the Pathogenesis of Asthma
Organizer(s): Daniel Rotrosen, Jeffrey M. Drazen and Stephen T. Holgate
Date: February 08 - 13, 2002
Location: Hilton Santa Fe Historic Plaza Hotel, Santa Fe, NM, USA
Sponsored by Aventis Pharmaceuticals, Inc. and Inflazyme Pharmaceuticals, Ltd.
Summary of Meeting:
Asthma is a major cause of illness and disability worldwide. During the past 2-3 decades, the prevalence of asthma and morbidity due to asthma have increased substantially. Since previous models of asthma pathogenesis cannot explain this trend, this conference will bring together basic and clinical scientists representing a wide range of scientific disciplines to reexamine the pathogenesis of asthma from the perspective of new insights into human immune system development and biology and an expanding awareness of the role of environmental factors. Examples include advances in gene discovery and receptor-mediated signaling, an appreciation of the importance of early life events in molding the allergic diathesis, and an understanding of the role of the innate immune system in the establishment and maintenance of airway inflammation and hyperreactivity. This conference will highlight current research and future directions in areas that hold promise for the development of new therapeutic agents and preventive approaches.
