Environment and Allergy Section
Karl-Christian Bergmann, PhD, MD
Charité Universitätsmedizin Berlin, Allergy Centre
The Environment and Allergy Section will inform you on latest developments in the most important aspects of allergy – the impact of our environment on the induction of allergies in children, adolescents, and adults. In our changing world, in the shadow of climate change and air pollution, allergies also change their prevalence, their frequencies, and burden for individuals and the society.
We invite our colleagues to send their original works, reviews, and meta-analysis to our section.
