- World's largest Congress on allergy & immunology with delegates from over 100 countries to present new ways of treating allergies
The European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (EAACI) will hold its annual congress 16 - 20 June in Geneva (Switzerland). The latest advances in the field of allergy and clinical immunology will be presented to specialists from around the world, making it the leading medical congress on allergy and immunology globally. Ground-breaking research results will be presented with the goals of reducing the impact of allergy by early detection, finding ways of prevention and improving the treatment of the growing number of patients.
Exposure to allergens during pregnancy will be a key topic during the EAACI Congress, as well as how stress provokes reactions such us as asthma or eczema in the newborn. Japanese researchers have found that anxiety in pregnant woman is associated with childhood atopic eczema during the first 8 months of life. The results will be presented at the Congress.
