Brief description Many people with asthma are unusually vulnerable to viral infections. This study will carefully examine different components of immune function in people with asthma, including the receptors that respond to viral nucleic acids and the reasons why people with asthma do not produce normal quantities of anti-viral interferons. This research may lead to novel methods for prevention and treatment of virus infections in people with asthma.
