Brief description The poor understanding of the cause of asthma has made prevention strategies unsuccessful. This study will provide valuable data for understanding the interactions between exposure to environmental stimuli and LPS pathway genes on the development of allergy and asthma in infants. As environmental modifications and dietary interventions during pregnancy are being investigated, the findings from the proposed study will be important in guiding prevention practices of allergic diseases.
