Atopic Dermatitis - Underlying Immune Mechanisms and Promising Outcomes with Biologics Therapy



Published
In this episode of EUFOREA News, join Dr. David Bull and Prof. Peter Schmid-Grendelmeier, Head of Allergy Unit, Department of Dermatology at the University Hospital of Zurich, as they explore the phenomenon of type 2 inflammation in the skin and what we can learn from it in
the respiratory tract. We'll look at what type 2 inflammation has its role in causing disease, the advent of biologicals in treating disease and the outlook for those suffering from chronic skin and respiratory inflammatory conditions.

In the last few years, there has been an increase in research into the role of the immune system in the causation of various types of skin and respiratory disease. Of particular interest is the role that type 2 inflammation plays in the aetiology of a wide range of conditions such as atopic dermatitis, chronic rhinosinusitis, asthma and chronic urticaria.

As researchers understand more about the complex pathways of causation, novel therapies have been developed which have completely changed the outlook for patients suffering from these conditions. This will discuss the mechanisms of disease causation and the novel therapies that have been developed which have completely changed the outlook for patients suffering from these conditions.
