As the prevalence of allergic diseases and asthma has increased in recent years, scientists have intensified research efforts to understand the pathogenesis of these sometimes debilitating conditions. Indeed, researchers have provided key insights-and new concepts-that have changed therapeutic strategies. Moreover, allergic inflammation has served as something of a model in furthering our understanding of regulatory mechanisms of inflammation in general. Presented in an encyclopedic format, the CRC Desk Reference for Allergy and Asthma provides the latest scientific information on allergic diseases and asthma. It combines knowledge from clinical immunology with basic immunology, pharmacology, biochemistry, and molecular biology to examine new treatment strategies for allergic diseases and asthma. Highlights of the CRC Desk Reference for Allergy and Asthma include: EASE OF USE. This desk reference presents topics in alphabetical order so that they are easy to find. CROSS-REFERENCING. Utilizes cross-referencing to aid in the rapid switch between basic and clinical science. UNIFIED NOMENCLATURE. Greatly assists those readers who are new in the field. HIGHLIGHTS VITAL INFORMATION.
