Project - Aims
eine Band

The EFRAIM – project was driven by the following aims:

We aimed

- to identify mechanisms of early protective exposures on allergy development using birth cohort studies with comprehensive measures of the developing immune response. 

- to identify the dietary exposures early in life which protect against allergy development.

 - to identify the exposures related to life style and the living environment early in life which protect against allergy development.

 - to investigate the mechanisms by which the identified dietary and environmental exposures impact on the maturation of immune responses, gut colonization, and mucosal barrier function.

 - to initiate translation of the resulting knowledge into avenues for the development of future preventive strategies using experimental in vitro systems and animal models of allergic asthma.
