Book Details


"The Year in Allergy provides the interested reader with a thoughtful and insightful review of the advances in the field, and of the contributions which are most important to our up to date understanding of the allergic problem world-wide." From the Foreword to the previous volume by Professor Stephen I Wasserman. Allergy is now emerging as a front line scientific and medical discipline of great importance. Within the subject there have been considerable advances in the past decade in understanding the underlying mechanism of allergy and the diseases associated with it. At the same time we have seen a vast increase in incidence of allergic disease around the world, and particularly in western countries due to changes in environmental factors. In this new volume, the editors have assembled an expert team of international experts to select the recent papers that are shaping thinking in the field, within the broad areas of epidemiology, pathogenesis, pathophysiology and treatment modalities for allergic diseases. Each paper is summarized and reviewed and then placed in its clinical context, thus assisting the reader to adapt his or her own practice to the latest developments in a considered way.
