An article collection in: World Allergy Organization Journal
The World Allergy Organization Immunotherapy and Biologics Online Monograph comprises thematic state-of-the-art reviews inspired by the deliberations at the WAO Immunotherapy and Biologics Symposium 2013. These reviews highlight the cutting edge advances, future directions, and unmet needs in immunotherapy and biologics and personalized medicine for the diagnosis and treatment of allergic diseases and asthma. With the growing burden of allergic diseases and the increasing evidence of the complexity, severity, and phenotypes of these diseases, newer diagnostic tools and more precise targeted therapies are the need of the hour to meet the growing challenge in the delivery of optimal treatment to patients. This monograph will provide readers with updated knowledge on a wide range of topics, from understanding the fundamentals of the new diagnostic tools and therapies to the use of personalized medicine, sublingual immunotherapy, and other forms of immunotherapy in development.
