Allergic diseases are complex and involve a range of environmental factors interacting with a susceptible genotype. The familial clustering of diseases, such as asthma and hay fever, has been recognised for over two centuries, but identification of the genetic basis to this had to await the molecular biological revolution. Estimates of the contribution that genetic factors make to asthma susceptibility range from 35% to 70%. For the majority of... more...

When I entered the field of allergy in the early 1970s, the standard textbook was a few hundred pages, and the specialty was so compact that texts were often authored entirely by a single individual and were never larger than one volume. Compare this with Allergy Frontiers: Epigenetics, Allergens, and Risk Factors, the present s- volume text with well over 150 contributors from throughout the world. This book captures the explosive growth of our... more...

This book educates the reader on the molecular and cellular mechanism of allergic diseases in the respiratory tract covering all aspects, from its immunological basis to its application in drug development. In contrast to other books, this book focuses on well-known and newly-emerging cells, cytokins, and mediators involved in the pathogenesis of allergic diseases in the respiratory tract. In particular, this book emphasises the findings of novel drug... more...

Concern about the impact of air pollution has led governments and local authorities across the world to regulate, among other things, the burning of fossil fuels, industrial effluence, cigarette smoke, and aerosols. This legislation has often followed dramatic findings about the impact of pollution on human health. At the same time there have been significant developments in our ability to detect and quantify pollutants and a proliferation of urban and... more...


Immunopharmacology represents the boundary between the immune system and chemical mediators of the inflammatory and neuroendocrine responses. The subject as applied to the respiratory system embraces most of the common non-malignant lung diseases of which asthma and allied disorders are the most prevalent. An understanding of the underlying mechanisms of the disorders provides rationale for prevention and drug treatment as well as creating... more...

The second edition of this highly acclaimed text has been extensively revised and greatly expanded to reflect the considerable advances made in our understanding of the mechanisms of asthma and rhinitis. Containing the contributions of 242 experts of international standing, presented in 133 chapters, Asthma and Rhinitis provides an up-to-date, authoritative reference for both the clinician and scientist. The global approach given in this book... more...

The prevalence of asthma and other allergic diseases is on the rise worldwide, with a marked impact on quality of life and socioeconomics. Allergy Frontiers comprises six volumes, each dedicated to a specific aspect of the disease to reflect the multidisciplinary character of the field and its explosive growth. Included are reviews by world-renowned scientists from Europe, North and South America, Australia, Japan, other parts of Asia, and South... more...
