People with asthma often develop gastrointestinal disorders during their lifetime. Researchers at the University of Augsburg have now found evidence of a causal relationship. According to the research, childhood asthma increases the risk of a number of conditions. The study published in the journal BMC Medicine is based on the analysis of data from several hundred thousand Europeans.
While the university's medical campus is still under construction, the research operations of the new university medicine chairs are already underway. In order to provide the professors with the appropriate infrastructure until this is completed, a total of around 6,300 m² of research space has been rented at four locations.
A study by the Augsburg pathologist Dr Tina Schaller from the University Hospital of Augsburg, together with an interdisciplinary medical team, shows that the lung tissue of deceased COVID-19 patients is irreversibly damaged. The cause of the damage was the virus, the genetic make-up of which could still be detected in the respiratory tract.
