Allergic and lung diseases are two of the most exciting fields in children. Recent understanding of pathomechanisms has led to identifying new diagnostic and therapeutic methods, while component-resolved diagnosis has changed the diagnostic approach as well as the clinical decision. New treatments, including monoclonal antibodies, an allergen specific immunotherapy, have increased the control of diseases.
In addition, pediatric patients may benefit from innovative measures that have been shown to prevent the development of allergic and lung diseases. An improved awareness of pathogenesis and treatment involves an enhancement of the quality of life of children and their parents.
The aim of this Special Issue is to bring up-to-date information on prevention, epidemiology, pathogenesis, and treatment of children with allergies or lung diseases.
We remain at your disposal for additional questions.
