Environmental epigenetics and allergic diseases: recent advances

Significant strides in the understanding of the role of epigenetic regulation in asthma and allergy using both epidemiological approaches as well as experimental ones have been made. This review focuses on new research within the last 2 years. These include advances in determining how environmental agents implicated in airway disease can induce epigenetic changes, how epigenetic regulation can influence T helper cell differentiation and T regulatory cell production, and new discoveries of epigenetic regulation associated with clinical outcomes.
