I am working as a clinical pharmacologist in the healthcare system. Main clinical areas are education, pharmacological treatment of astma and COPD and adverse drug reactions including drug allergy.

Asthma and COPD studies in primary care
There are existing therapies which have shown excellent effect in clinical studies, but in everyday care many asthma patients achieve suboptimal control. We want to investigate factors that can improve the effects of pharmacological treatment in an everyday care setting, approaching the potential shown in randomized clinical trials. The present research programme comprises an ongoing prospective, randomized study in primary care, AQT (Asthma: Quality of life-guided Treatment), where the influence on asthma control of guiding asthma treatment using quality of life measurements is studied. We will perform a comprehensive phenotypic characterization of primary care asthmatics from the involved units.
I am also involved in pharmacoepidemiological studies with focus on asthma.
