World’s largest collaborative study will be celebrated
World’s largest collaborative study that was undertaken with children will be celebrated in New Zealand and for this; experts of international repute on asthma and allergy research will later this month arrive in New Zealand.
With University of Auckland researchers at the helm, in 1991, the International Study of Asthma and Allergies in Childhood, ISAAC, had come into being.
For decreasing eczema and asthma rhinitis, about two million children and 100 countries are working together for developing environmental measures.
In the University of Auckland Owen G Glenn Building, the ISSAC symposium will be hosted by the University of Auckland at the Fisher & Paykel Appliances Auditorium.
The event will be opened by Maori Party co-leader and the Associate Minister of Health Tariana Turia and there will be speeches by experts in their fields.
Allergies and asthma form a common problem for people in New Zealand, Professor Innes Asher, ISAAC Chair and Head of Paediatrics at the University, said.
He added, “One in four New Zealand children and adults has asthma symptoms. Maori and Pacific people are disproportionately affected by asthma and access to medical care may be a key factor in these disparities.”
