Kirsten S.

Dr. Hungness and the entire staff at Carolina Asthma and Allergy own been professional and caring. From my first appointment, I felt Dr.

Hungness truly understood the extent of my allergies and how much they were affecting my quality of life. After doing a full allergy panel, she suggested we consider allergy shots. I can’t start to describe how much my life has improved since starting allergy shots! I noticed improvement in the first year. Now that I’m three years into getting shots, my symptoms own improved significantly. When I do feel allergy symptoms — which is rare — I take my antihistamine for a few days (I don’t own to take it regularly anymore), and I am fine.

I can enjoy my life with my family and don’t need to sit things out because I can’t stop sneezing or can’t open my eyes.

My only remorse is that I didn’t start allergy shots a decade sooner.

These shots own truly changed my life — and that’s no exaggeration. Our 8-year-old son has allergies as well, and after seeing my success on the shots, my husband and I decided to start him on shots, too. He’s been on them for 2 years now and he is a diverse kid. Spring and autumn are no longer miserable for him.

Thank you, Dr. Hungness and Carolina Asthma & Allergy Center!

Presentation de l’équipe

Allergic and respiratory diseases affect a relevant segment of the population resulting in significant social and economic burden and their prevalence is increasing worldwide. Taking the most known diseases, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), there are now at least 300 million people suffering from asthma and over 200 million people suffering from COPD that includes chronic bronchitis and emphysema.

In terms of mortality, each year in the world there are almost 250,000 asthma-related deaths and COPD ranks at the 5th leading cause of death. In addition, a WHO/World Bank projection to 2020 brings COPD to the 3rd leading cause of death with 4.7 million deaths. Although other allergic and respiratory diseases love rhinitis, drug allergy, pulmonary interstitial diseases … are also extremely common at the population level, their burden has still to be estimated.

EPAR’s main research aims consist in 1) the identification of allergic and respiratory phenotypes/endotypes and their distribution and 2) the determination of the role of environmental risk factors in the aggravation and the development of these phenotypes in view to explain the augmentation of the prevalence of these conditions in the past decades.

The central hypothesis of EPAR is that, in order to explain the increase of allergic and respiratory diseases observed in the past decades, it is essential to take into account that these are heterogeneous conditions displaying diverse phenotypes and underlying endotypes and that the role of risk factors varies according to the type of phenotype/endotypes.

In this field, main recent results concern the identification of phenotypes of asthma in early childhood when diseases develop and the comprehension of the impact of indoor and outdoor air pollution on asthma and COPD in susceptible populations, young children and elderly respectively. Ongoing work on the comprehension of the increase of allergic and respiratory diseases covers additional allergic and respiratory diseases (registries are starting for severe sarcoidosis and drug allergy) and takes into account other etiological and modifier factors.

What is allergies and asthma

From the etiological point of view, the expology and exposome approaches are taken into account, namely in the frame of the HEALS project that EPAR is leading (www.heals-eu.eu). The exposome is the totality of external exposures and internal consequences as assessed through “omics” that characterize the lifespan of the individuals.

What is allergies and asthma

Such a new paradigm has been introduced to better explain the development and the increase of major chronic diseases including allergic and respiratory diseases that has not been elucidated using the classical approach based on the relationship of one risk factor to the disease after adjusting for confounders, every the variables assessed in short periods. One specificity of HEALS resides in the fact that HEALS dispose of general population studies having recruited both singletons and twins, monozygotic twins being particularly adapted to effect of the environment in specific through the consideration of epigenetics and of the action some environmental factors own on epigenetic mechanisms.

Among major modifiers of the relationships between and health outcomes, the influence of medical treatment (including immunotherapy) on the evolution of these diseases, is taken into account.

The prevention component is consolidated thanks to the Department of General Practice of UPMC Paris Sorbonne Universités, which works on the respiratory effects of indoor air pollution at the primary care level and on the relationships between air pollution and overweight and obesity in asthmatic and non-asthmatic populations.

The projects progression will be based on the development of novel methods for assessing human exposure (expology) and statistics applied to the case of allergy and respiratory disease (DAG, predictive models…).

EPAR is presently involved in the following research projects: EU FP7-ENV HEALS (as PI), Life + MED’HISS (WP leader), Life + AIS (WP Leader), EDEN birth cohort, ELFE birth cohort, ASTHM’CHILD, PAALM, BALISTIC, Register of Severe Sarcoïdosis, OQAI.
