PG3 - Asthma: natural history, risk factors and overall management

Postgraduate Course
Chairs: E. Bel (Leiden, The Netherlands), A. Woodcock (Manchester, United Kingdom)
This is the third course in a three-year postgraduate core curriculum covering the main issues on asthma from pathogenetics to current treatment strategies. The aims of this third module in the series are:
• to describe the key risk factors and events involved in the development of asthma in children, and to understand the principles behind the development and natural progression of asthma in adulthood;
• to review how allergens interact with the human immune system, and discuss the causal relationship between inhaled allergen exposure and asthma;
• to define the role of infective agents in the pathophysiology of asthma, and to understand the biological mechanisms underlying the interaction between infective agents and airway inflammation;
• to define the goals and importance of asthma education, and to identify the resources and strategies that enhance optimal outcomes.
