The focus of the University of Southern California (USC) Children''s Environmental Health Center is to develop a better understanding of how host susceptibility and environmental exposures contribute to children''s respiratory disease. This research will provide health and environmental officials with a variety of useful intervention tools. USC intends to investigate the relationship between environmental tobacco smoke (ETS) and asthma in children. This project will determine the biological mechanisms by which ETS alters normal allergic responses in children.
