Health research funded by Asthma UK shows outputs and societal impacts from all types of research funding although the main societal impacts come from a minority of projects . Such assessments help justify research expenditure and inform strategy for future funding.
A study of respiratory disease in Zhuhai, China, found seasonal patterns of influenza virus, respiratory syncytial virus, and human metapneumovirus as well as correlations between some viruses with air temperature or air humidity.
The great American palaeontologist and anatomist Alfred Romer speculated that early in animal life, an emerging somatic nervous system, focused on the outside world, struggled to dominate the visceral nervous system that takes care of the internal systems that keep us alive.

Covering all aspects of integrative human physiology, this exciting new journal aims to enhance current understanding of disease processes through the study of the human body under extreme physiological stress. The broad scope includes extreme environments- such as altitude and hypoxia, hyperbaric conditions, aerospace or extreme temperatures, as well as intense endurance exercise and certain clinical conditions. Using investigations into human physiology at the limits of survival to inform disease states such as critical illness is the core mission for this journal.
Allergy, Asthma & Clinical Immunology, Clinical and Molecular Allergy and Clinical & Translational Allergy are working together to promote the advancement in knowledge on food allergy with a cross-journal collection.
The collection will feature articles covering various aspects of food allergy that are published in the journals during 2012.
Awareness and diagnosis of food allergy as well as effective management and treatment for sufferers is imperative in order to prevent life-threatening events. Understanding aspects such as epidemiology and pathophysiology of food hypersensitivity will help further knowledge and support for patients.
New articles will be added to the series throughout the year. View articles already published here.
