Environmental estrogen exposures alter molecular signaling in immune cells that promote the development of childhood asthma

This study found that exposure to environmental estrogens, such as bisphenol A (BPA), disrupts immune cell signaling, which leads to childhood asthma. This finding is important in understanding the potential for environmental exposures leading to the increased prevalence of asthma in children. Senior author Terumi Midoro-Horiuti was awarded the Allergic Respiratory Disease Award from American Lung Association/American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology.
