Chronic respiratory diseases affect hundreds of millions of people of all ages, are a major cause of global morbidity and mortality, and strongly predict the overall health and well-being, particularly in old-aged patients. It is now widely recognized that ageing is largely determined throughout the life course, including the pre-birth period. Asthma and allergic rhinitis often occur in children, can persist throughout life, and should be tackled early. Studying the biological markers is of great interest to better understand the pathophysiological mechanisms of these diseases, and could improve their diagnosis, their treatment and their prevention.
