The increasing incidence and prevalence of allergic disease worldwide is one of the most remarkable phenomena of the past 50 years. One in three people in developed countries will experience an allergic condition at some point in their lives and advances in understanding the causes of this trend, and in allergy treatment and care, have captured the imagination of scientists, clinicians and the public. Landmark Papers in Allergyis a definitive collection of over 90 papers charting key discoveries and scientific advances in relation to allergy and the development of treatment and care for allergic disorders. Comprehensive in its coverage, the book includes the first clear descriptions of allergic diseases; the major advances in treatments, such as the discovery of antihistamines, cortisone, biological therapies and immunotherapy; the great immunological advances, such as the discovery of immunoglobulin E (IgE) and leukotrienes; the factors behind the increase in allergy, such as the house dust mite, changes in hygiene and diet; and the growing understanding of the social, psychological and quality-of-life consequences of allergy. Including authoritative commentaries from leading international experts providing reflections on the historical importance and current relevance of each landmark paper,Landmark papers in Allergyis essential reading for any clinician or academic with an interest in allergy.
