Special Issue Information
Allergy to inhalant and food allergens affects many patients worldwide. Various animal species are also known to suffer from allergic diseases, such as dogs with atopic dermatitis due to sensitization to house dust mites. Research into elucidating allergy mechanisms and development of new therapies in humans has been possible by utilizing animal models. This Special Issue of Veterinary Sciences on “Allergies in Animals and Humans” invites original articles and brief communications, as well as reviews, especially on how allergic diseases in animals can shed light on these in humans, or visa versa. Hopefully, this will lead to closer collaboration between researchers in the veterinary and medical sciences to tackle this important disorder.
Associate Professor Rob Siebers
