Genedata and the Institute of Experimental Medicine, Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic Collaborate on Asthma Bronchiale Project
Date:10/19/2009

">asthma bronchiale project focuses on investigating and understanding the effects of air pollution on gene expression and the individual genetic susceptibility to the effects of toxic air pollutants in selected children cohorts from various regions of the Czech Republic. The diagnosis of asthma bronchiale in children has increased from 10% in 2001 to 30% in 2007 in the Ostrava-Bartovice region. This alarming trend is now being investigated looking at dust particles containing carcinogenic polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (c-PAHs) as these particles are thought to contribute to the increase of asthma bronchitis. Inherited genetic factors are also being studied to provide further information to improve the mechanistic understanding of the causes of the disease.

"We are excited about the asthma bronchiale project and to contribute to uncovering the mechanism of action of the disease in children," noted Dr. Othmar Pfannes, CEO of Genedata. "This collaboration further demonstrates Genedata's commitment to biomarker research and providing statistical data analysis across multiple research groups and locations."
