Dr. Sutherland’s research efforts are directed primarily at epidemiologic and clinical issues in adult asthma. Four projects are ongoing:
(1) a retrospective cohort study of subjects with childhood community-acquired pneumonia to determine the importance of early-life infection in determining adult asthma prevalence,
(2) a trans-bronchial biopsy study of distal airway (terminal bronchiolar and alveolar) inflammation in subjects with asthma,
(3) studies of the neurohormonal and genetic mechanisms regulating circadian variations in airway inflammation in patients with nocturnal asthma,
(4) development of safe and effective noninvasive methods for the assessment of airway inflammation in patients with COPD.
