Our research is focused on understanding Aspirin Exacerbated Respiratory Disease (AERD), also known as Aspirin Sensitive Asthma or Samter’s Triad. We are investigating the causative mechanisms of AERD/Samter’s Triad, as well as exploring new treatments for the disease and working to understand how patients can become desensitized to aspirin. Our group at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital’s AERD Center follows over 900 patients with AERD/Samter’s Triad and have several ongoing research studies that are currently recruiting and enrolling patients.
We are also actively involved in research to further knowledge about the causes of chronic rhinosinusitis and nasal polyps, and to better understand the consequences of being allergic to aspirin or NSAIDs.
