Details of ALLERGY & IMMUNOLOGY CONFERENCE 2019 in London, UK:
An allergy is an immune system hypersensitive reaction triggered in response to a foreign substance that either come in or come into contact with the body. Substances that develop allergy are called "allergens." Pollens, dust mites, molds, animal proteins, foods, and medications are some of the examples of allergens. These Allergens are foreign substances to the body. When the individual who is allergic comes in contact with an allergen, the allergic part of the immune system generates a response by producing Immunoglobulin E antibodies. The antibodies move to cells that release histamine and other chemicals, & cause an allergic reaction.
Most common allergy types:
Drug allergy, Food allergies, Contact dermatitis, Latex allergy, Allergic asthma, Seasonal allergies, Animal allergy, Allergy to mold.
Approximately 10%-30% of individuals in the industrialized world are affected by allergic conditions, and number is increasing.
Allergic rhinitis affects roughly 20% of Americans.
Asthma affects roughly 8%-10% of Americans. The estimated health costs for asthma exceed approximately $20 billion annually.
Food allergies affect roughly 3%-6% of children in the United States, and roughly 1%-2% of adults in the U.S.
About 17 million Europeans suffer from food allergies
Prevalence of allergies in children varies from 1.7% in Greece to 4% in Italy and Spain, to over 5% in France, UK, Netherlands and Germany.
The prevalence of allergic conditions has increased significantly over the last two decades and continues to rise.
