Abstract

Emerging technologies are profoundly changing the landscape of allergy diagnoses and future allergy treatments. At the single patient level, the introduction of single components and allergen microarrays for allergy diagnoses has significantly modified treatment strategies. In epidemiological terms, the availability of information from large dataset analyses has allowed and, more importantly, will allow for changes in prophylaxis and treatment strategies in many patients. In this report, we describe the different fields where new technologies have had a significant effect on allergy management and identify new scenarios where the combination of data from basic, clinical, and epidemiological research will improve our knowledge of allergy diagnosis and treatment.
