Asthma is a chronic lung condition that affects your airways or bronchial tubes. It causes your airways to narrow, swell and produce extra mucus, which in turn makes it more difficult to breathe. The narrowing of the airways causes you to feel short of breath, wheezy or trigger fits of coughing.
An estimated 30 percent of the U.S. population experience symptoms of Atopic Dermatitis, according to the National Institutes of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, but this skin disease is more common among children. Symptoms usually start within the first five years of life, often the first six months. With time and treatment, as children mature, eczema will often go away – but it sometimes continues into adulthood.
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is the medical term used to describe forms of serious lung conditions that cause the airways to narrow, become obstructive, and inflamed, which in turn makes breathing difficult.
Eosinophil-Driven Diseases (EDDs) are Type 2 Inflammatory Diseases that can take several forms. Elevated eosinophils play a crucial role in EDDs. Eosinophilic immune dysfunction is responsible for the recruitment and activation of eosinophils and can trigger these illnesses.
