Beatriz Leon, PhD, and Frances Lund, PhD, from the University of Alabama at Birmingham hope that their work in the field can continue to show ways that future research and development can aid these patients. With allergy and asthma becoming a growing problem in the pediatric population getting these young patients help as soon as possible can have a direct link to their later quality of life.
