As exciting new treatments and diagnostics begin to transition into clinical practice, join Professor Alexandra Santos and Dr Sharon Chinthrajah to explore:
- The prevalence, risks, and burden of food allergies
- IgE-mediated food allergy pathophysiology and the key questions to ask during diagnosis
- Current management strategies and developments that are on the horizon
How important is a detailed clinical history when diagnosing IgE-mediated food allergies? Get to know the most recent recommendations for the diagnosis and management of food allergy as well as emerging treatments and diagnostics that may impact the future of food allergy management.
