Human Microbiome: The Interface of Immunology and Microbiology (MOC)

You can earn up to 1.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s). This activity has also been designated by the ABAI for 1.5 MOC Part II Self-Assessment credits. Cost: $30 $15 for College Members, $45 $25 for non-members.

These presentations will review: 1) the role of microbiome in the pathogenesis of asthma, related traits and other inflammatory disease; 2) how gut microbiota dysbiosis contributes to aberrant immune development and the development of allergic disease and asthma; and 3) how asthma is a heterogeneous disease with differeing clinical and inflammatory phenotypes, especially among adults; to include discussion of recent observations of airway dysbiosis in asthma and relationships to phenotypic features of the disease, including possible treatment implications.
