Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Investigations into pathophysiologic mechanisms are revealing the pieces of the puzzle that is allergy, with new potential therapeutic targets emerging. This issue of Pharmaceuticals will present recent developments in our understanding of the etiopathogenesis of IgE responses, and provide a better understanding of present and potential treatments for this area of hypersensitivity which can affect more than 25% of the general population.
