From NJH website, retrieved 11/27/2018:

"In 1978, the National Asthma Center, previously called the Children's Asthma Research Institute and Hospital (CARIH, pronounced Car-ee), merged with National Jewish Hospital to create the world's largest inpatient treatment facility for pediatric and adult asthma patients. Researchers at CARIH had made many notable discoveries, including the discovery of Immunoglobulin E (IgE), called the “allergy antibody.” The discovery at last established beyond a doubt that there is a physical basis for asthma."
