Current Areas of Study on Allergies

Research on Diagnosing Allergies

Some research studies on allergies are seeking better ways to diagnose, as well as treat, people with allergic diseases and to better understand the factors that regulate IgE production to reduce the allergic response. Several institutions are focusing on ways to influence the cells that participate in this process.
 

Allergy Research on Genes

Although several factors provoke responses, allergy research scientists know that heredity plays a major role in determining who will develop a reaction. Therefore, scientists are trying to identify and describe the genes that make a person susceptible to allergic diseases.
 
Because scientists are becoming increasingly aware of the role of environmental factors in allergies, they are evaluating ways to control environmental exposures to allergens and pollutants to prevent allergic disease.
 
These research studies offer the promise of improving the treatment and control of allergic diseases and the hope that one day such diseases will be preventable.
