Study to Analyze the Metabolic Environment in Preventing Atopic Dermatitis


About this study

The purpose of this study is to compare the assessment of the composition of the fecal, nasal,oral and skin microbiota in patients with AD (cases) as compared to age/sex and diet matched control children without atopic dermatitis, and to apply mass-spectrometry-based metabolomic approach to analyzing fecal, nasal, oral and skin samples from cases, in order to characterize their biochemical metabolic profiles by comparison with those of their controls.
