Since 1971, NIAID has supported targeted research to understand the causes of and develop preventions and treatments for asthma, a respiratory disease that affects approximately 25 million Americans, including 7 million children aged 17 years and under. NIAID's research focuses on understanding how the environment, allergens, and genetics interact with the body's immune system to cause the disease and aggravate the symptoms.
