Raising Awareness of Clinical Immunology Studies by EAACI For Allergy Patients


One of the main problems facing researchers and clinicians who are studying problems related to allergies, especially organizations like the European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology or EAACI is how to detect the problem early, rooting out the triggers that caused the problem, the correct form of treatment, and ways to prevent this in the future. One standout breakthrough method is the use of immunology to determine how the immune system of the body works when invaded by bacteria, viruses, and other microorganisms. International Research Besides the EAACI, there are many private and publicly funded research organizations and institutions that are doing thorough research on this problem, because this issue affects millions of people all over the world. Through the process of documentation of case studies and research currently underway, there is a very good possibility or chance that a permanent cure for allergies could be just around the corner. This type of clinical immunology studies is being done by some of the biggest organizations by collecting materials that cover these conditions that affect millions of Europeans and other sufferers around the world. They are also actively involved in the research of allergic and immunologic issues and possible cures. Immunological Data Comprehensive clinical immunology research is also done by pharmaceutical companies because a breakthrough in this field could be huge in terms of profits, once the drug has cleared the necessary studies and clearances. However, non-profit organizations like EAACI have invested a lot of money in research in the hope of finding a way to understand this issue of allergies which brings about problems like asthma, conjunctivitis, and food and drug allergies among others. A problem affecting millions of children and adults around the world is asthma, which comes under the immunological bracket, and could be severely debilitating for sufferers in its most severe form. Data collated by the EAACI and other medical research centres shows that early detection of asthma symptoms, its appropriate management and treatment is the way forward. Specific IgE Tests Another form of allergy management extremely successful in early detection and treatment is molecular allergology which uses single allergen components to detect specific antibodies produced by the body, i.e., Immunoglobulin E or IgE antibodies. This procedure involves collecting blood samples from patients and doing tests and measurements for different kinds of triggers. The screening is done using allergen-specific IgE tests for the allergens like pollen, pet dander, dust mites, specific foods like peanuts, milk, shellfish, milk, etc., medications, etc. Based on the patient’s history, the physician or immunologist may order testing for a single allergen or a group of allergens, also called a mini-screen, results of which could be vital for the patient’s continued well-being.
