Appeasing the wheezing

The overall purpose of our ongoing research project is to understand causes and consequences of respiratory and allergic disorders and its comorbidity to neuropsychiatric, affective, autoimmune and other inflammatory disorders, as well as how genetic and early environmental factors contribute to the associations. 

This will be accomplished by combining questionnaire data and biomarkers in the Swedish Twin Registry with the national health-, sociodemographic- and quality registers using novel analytical methods and innovative study designs.
