      Mass. General studies identify differences underlying the airway responses of patients with asthma

      Novel imaging and other tools reveal thicker airway smooth muscle, stronger immune response to allergens in asthmatic individuals More than 300 million people worldwide are affected by asthma, 25 million in the U.S. alone, and for most of them, allergy is an underlying cause. But why do some individuals allergic to airborne allergens develop asthma while many do not? Now two research teams from Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) have used innovative imaging technology and other novel approaches to identify some key differences in both the immune response and the sensitivity of airway cells to inflammation between allergic individuals with ...
