Translating the Science of Allergy and Immunology into Clinical Medicine

In this presentation, Dr. David P. Huston, Professor in the Departments of Medicine and Microbial Pathogenesis and Immunology and Associate Dean of the College of Medicine at Texas A&M Health Science Center, updates the audience on recent advances in the fields of allergy and immunology. He  decribes recent insights into disease processes for the type 2 immune response disorders included in the Atopic March: allergic eczema, allergic rhinitis with or without nasal polyps, and allergic asthma. He also reviews recent FDA-approved biologics for the treatment of these conditions.

Dr. Huston discusses the clinical case of a 3-year old girl who presents with pulmonary alveolar proteinosis with a genetic abnormality, and explains how his team identified the etiology of this disease.
