For more articles visit www.bridges4kids.org

 
The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases in the National Institutes of Health has awarded a six-year $55.8 million contract to the University of Wisconsin at Madison to establish a nationwide research network with the goal of reducing the severity of asthma and preventing the disease in inner-city children, a group that suffers disproportionately from asthma. The Inner-City Asthma Consortium will conduct clinical trials to evaluate the effectiveness of immune-based and other asthma treatments as well as possible genetic predispositions to asthma and biological mechanisms underlying the disease. Participating institutions include Boston University, Boston, Massachusetts; Children's Memorial Hospital, Chicago, Illinois; Howard University, Washington, D.C.; Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, Maryland; Mt. Sinai Medical Center, New York City; National Jewish Medical Center, Denver, Colorado; University of Arizona, Tucson; and the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas.
