Welcome to this Special Issue of Cells on “Molecular and Cellular Basis for Allergies and Asthma".
Allergies and Asthma are chronic health conditions that range in frequency and severity from mild to life-threatening symptoms, which vary from person to person. In particular, the importance of allergic asthma gained much international press and attention following Melbourne’s recent deadly thunderstorm asthma epidemic of November 21, 2016, which resulted in 10 deaths and thousands of sufferers seeking emergency medical attention. Although one can suffer from allergies without ever having a previous episode of an asthma attack, it is now known and well accepted that people with certain allergies (grass pollen and fungal spore allergies for example) can be particularly vulnerable to thunderstorm asthma epidemics and thus the importance of research on the molecular and cellular basis for allergies and asthma.
This Special Issue is intended to present latest findings related to the molecular and cellular basis for allergies and asthma, as well as the molecular and cellular links between the two conditions. Original research and review articles on all topics related to molecular and cellular basis for allergies and asthma are invited. I have the pleasure in inviting research scientists and clinicians from all relevant fields to submit their papers for this important and timely Special Issue. Please accept my sincere thanks for choosing to publish in Cells and I look forward to your submissions for this highly interesting, relevant and important Special Issue.

Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Cells is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
