Debates in Allergy Medicine

Edited by: Dr Alessandro Fiocchi, Prof. Erika Jensen-Jarolim

An article collection in: World Allergy Organization Journal

In this series we introduce each topic as a dialogue between two different views based on the scientific method. The dialectical method has served scholars for more than 2500 years, and this series takes up the tradition of comparing the different views presented and perhaps even encouraging a change of course, as can often happen in allergy.

Initial support for the dissemination of this series is provided by Boehringer-Ingleheim. All articles have undergone the journal's standard peer review process.

Read more about the origins of the collection in this blog post.
