Clinical Insights Into the Prevention and Modification of Atopic Disease
Sunday, March 6, 2016: 8:15 AM-9:45 AM
Convention Center, Level One, South Exhibit Hall G
1.50 CME/CE
Stephen A. Tilles , MD FAAAAI

Learning Objectives:
  1. Discuss basic principles of immune tolerance, and how the timing of allergen exposure can exert a profound influence on subsequent sensitization and symptoms of food allergy in susceptible children
  2. Discuss new thinking about the mechanisms and consequences of skin barrier breakdown for atopic dermatitis and allergen sensitization, including how barrier function impacts microbial colonization, and is attenuated by new biologic therapies
  3. Discuss the effects of asthma exacerbation on disease natural history, including how new biologic therapies targeting eosinophils and Th2 pathways are providing unexpected new insights into disease pathobiology (an example of bidirectional translational research)
