Researchers Examine Environmental and Lifestyle Determinants of Asthma Using Exposome Approach

The International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health’s January 2021 edition features an article examining asthma using the exposome approach, looking at all exposures of an individual and how they relate to health. The researchers review recent studies “linking multiple families of exposures to asthma-related outcomes.” While they note studies “showed differences in terms of study design, population, exposome definition and statistical methods used, making their results difficult to compare,” the researchers stress “this latest approach makes it possible to assess associations between a large set of exposures and asthma outcomes.”
