However, these relationships are not well established from past clinical studies that have had limited capacity to control for the effects of variable genetic predisposition and early(More)

Asthma is characterized by airway inflammation, wheezing, coughing, and breathlessness due to dysfunctional regulatory T cells (Treg) that are normally regulated by the Foxp3 transcription factor. In this study, we investigated the role of ambient air pollution exposure in the development of asthma and increased severity of symptoms via epigenetic(More)
