Physicians involved in providing patient care in the field of allergy/asthma/immunology
At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to:
● Recognize that farm exposures are inversely associated with the development of IgE-mediated allergic disorder but that non-IgE-mediated upper and lower respiratory diseases, predominately neutrophilic, are prevalent among farm workers and their family members.
● Discuss that farming exposures are complex and enriched with a wide diversity of microbial components that can activate host defense response through specific pattern recognition receptors.
