Presenting the Proceedings of the 23rd Symposium of the Collegium Internationale Allergo-logicum, this volume focuses on the molecular aspects of allergens, environmental and genetic risk factors of IgE-mediated diseases, and the role of inflammatory and regulatory cells (mast cells, T cells, eosinophils, monocytes/macrophages, dendritic cells) in inflammation, tissue repair, and tolerance induction. In addition, contributions discuss, in a comprehensive manner, novel approaches to the treatment of allergic and infectious diseases with special emphasis on vaccine strategies.
An understanding of these areas has important implications for the study and management of immunologically mediated and infectious diseases in the next decades. This compendium will prove of great practical value to allergologists, clinical immunologists and all physicians interested in understanding the pathomechanisms of disease and novel treatment strategies. Basic scientists who need access to an up-to-date review regarding the structure of disease-eliciting agents, regulatory pathways of the immune system and cellular and organ pathophysiology will also find it useful.
