What is allergy

Chadha is board certified in Pediatrics and Allergy and Immunology. She is a member of the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology, and the American College of Asthma Allergy and Immunology.

Dr. Chadha chose to specialize in Allergy in specific because she enjoys studying the intricacies of the immune system and likes that the specialty allows her to treat both children and adults. The chronic nature of allergic disease affords her the chance to build lasting relationships with her patients. She finds grand reward in providing care and education that results in an improved quality of life for her patients. Dr.

What is allergy

Chadha has numerous interests in a variety of allergic and immunologic conditions, including food allergy, asthma, urticaria, allergic rhinitis, primary immunodeficiency and eosinophilic esophagitis. She has contributed to research on eosinophilic esophagitis in children and has presented her work both locally and nationally.

Dr. Chadha lives in Charlotte with her husband, Ashley, a pediatric pulmonologist, 2 young sons, and 2 dogs.

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.

What is allergy

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.

What is allergy

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. 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. 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.

What is allergy

This Allergy Plus™ filter captures even the extremely finest particles including pollen, mould spores, dust mite faeces and allergens, reducing the risk of allergic reactions.

The high grade of material, used for our genuine filters, provides your vacuum cleaner with strong airflow and high suction power as well as a high filtration level and maximum dust retention.

To ensure the performance of your cleaner, we recommend you to wash this filter each time it gets visibly soiled. Wash it with a brush under a tap and let the filter dry before putting it back.

For optimum performance of your vacuum cleaner, your filters should be changed every 5 vacuum bags.

Every filters should be replaced at least twice a year or when they become visibly soiled. Use of non-original Electrolux vacuum bags and filters may adversely affect the performance of your vacuum cleaner.
