During his training in Denver, Dr. Stein's was interested in gastroesophageal reflux and how it could cause or aggravate asthma. His research began there. He and co-investigators were the first to provide scientific evidence for aspiration of gastric contents and/or a vagal nerve reflex from the esophagus could be contributing to worsening asthma. This work would subsequently be confirmed by several other investigators. An invitation from the NIH led to his editing and authoring his book "Gastroesophageal Reflux and Airway Disease" published in 1999. It has been the most thorough review of the subject. The object of his research changed to immunodeficiency and immunoglobulin therapy in the next decades as he treated an enlarging population of these patients, including many in the geriatric age group.
