  Some recent scientific results


  • A simple definition of allergic rhinitis and non-allergic rhinitis based on a validated and standardized questionnaire could be a suitable proxy for allergic rhinitis and non-allergic rhinitis in the absence of biological measures. (Read more : Savoure M et al. Questionnaire as an alternative of skin prick tests to differentiate allergic from non-allergic rhinitis in epidemiological studies. Allergy 2021  Mar 12. doi: 10.1111/all.14812. Online ahead of print).

  • While we are continually exposed to multiple environmental factors that potentially interact with each other, most previous studies have assessed the impact of a single exposure factor, or a very limited number of factors simultaneously, on health.  We conducted one of the first studies based on the concept of the exposome (which represents the totality of environmental exposures) which has demonstrated a specific exposure profile associated with a lower ventilatory function in asthmatics. This exposure profile was mainly characterized by higher smoking associated with poor diet, higher outdoor humidity and greater proximity of the home to roads. These novel results reinforce the need for a more comprehensive assessment of the effects of the environment on health. (read more: Guillien A et al.  Profile of exposures and lung function in adults with asthma: An exposome approach in the EGEA study. Env Res, 2020 Nov 5;110422. doi: 10.1016/j.envres.2020.110422.)

  • Using a clustering approach for mixed data integrating clinical and biological characteristics, this paper identified distinct respiratory endotypes among asthmatics and never-asthmatics in adults (≥16 years old) showing different clinical characteristics at follow-up.
