Pediatric Respiratory Medicine

Bronchiolitis (early childhood wheezing) is the most common cause for hospitalization in infants and young children and asthma is the most common chronic disease in school children in western countries. Early childhood wheezing is connected to asthma in later life, but the mechanisms are still unresolved. The risks of wheezing disorders at preschool age, and asthma and lung function disorders at school age, are  dependent on genetic factors, such as regulation of innate immunity and development of allergy, and on environmental factors, such as exposure to tobacco smoke and viral infections in early life.

Our research group studies applying the methods of clinical epidemiology the long-term outcome and early-life risk factors of bronchiolitis, innate immunity of  BCG vaccination  and respiratory syncytial virus infections, and in treatment of food allergy.
