Allergy and Asthma

Organizer(s): Catherine M. Hawrylowicz, Stephen J. Galli and Bart N. Lambrecht
Date: January 20 - 25, 2009
Location: Keystone Resort, Keystone, CO, USA
Supported by the Directors' Fund
Summary of Meeting:
Allergic diseases, including asthma, affect up to one third of individuals in the developed world at some time in their lifetime, causing severe loss in the quality of life and a significant healthcare burden. Current treatments are predominantly palliative and there remains an unmet need for improved and novel treatments that provide long-term relief from disease symptoms. At this meeting, clinicians and scientists from both academic and pharmaceutical research environments will discuss: (1) risk factors for disease; (2) innate mechanisms and structural cells involved in the initiation, development and manifestations of disease; (3) effector and regulatory immune mechanisms involved in the allergic process; (4) the relationship between inflammation and structural remodeling in asthma; (5) the improvement of conventional treatments; and (6) novel emerging therapeutic strategies for the control of allergic and asthmatic disease. Opportunities for interdisciplinary interactions will be further enhanced by the concurrent meeting “Fibrosis”, which will share a session with this meeting.
