Allergy and Immunology represents one of the most fascinating fields in children. Related diseases have reached epidemic proportions worldwide.
Novel knowledge on disease pathogenesis has opened up new clinical and therapeutic approaches for autoimmune and allergic disorders, including desensitization and biological drugs. Component-resolved diagnosis with recombinant allergens has improved the diagnosis and also clinical decisions. When it comes to pediatric patients especially, we should find innovative procedures to prevent the evolution of food allergy toward respiratory allergic diseases. Better understanding of pathogenesis and treatment means improving the quality of life of children and their parents.
The purpose of the Special Issue entitled “Pediatric Allergy and Immunology” is to update knowledge on epidemiology, pathogenesis, and treatment in pediatric allergy and immunology.
We encourage the submission of original manuscripts and reviews on this subject. We remain at your disposal for additional questions.
