Severe inflammatory disorders

Severe inflammatory disorders

The Child Health Program has a strong interest in inflammatory disorders of the airways, joints and the gut. Both genetic and environmental factors play a role in the development of uncontrolled chronic inflammation with subsequently serious disability and loss of quality of life. Our efforts are to increase our understanding of how environmental factors interact with genetically determined immune- and metabolic responses. This knowledge can help to develop novel preventive and therapeutic interventions and ultimately decrease the burden of disease in children and their families.
