How many people are affected by asthma? What are the different types of asthma and how do they differ from each other? These are some of the questions our researchers are currently working on.
Our research at the Krefting Research Centre is driven by the desire to improve the health, treatment and well-being of people with asthma. We now know that asthma is more than just one disease – it has several different underlying causes. Our researchers study the different types of asthma with the goal of understanding their differences in order to find better treatments. We also have experience working with large-scale population-based studies, such as the West Sweden Asthma Study (WSAS), an epidemiological survey of over 30 000 individuals.
