In the developed countries the prevalence of Allergic diseases is continuously growing, affecting all segment of the population. Therefore the understanding of the immunological background, the epidemiology and the knowledges of modern diagnostic and therapeutic possibilities are expected from the MDs. Doctors are responsible for providing general information about these common diseases for the public to prevent the false knowledges and adverse therapeutic interventions.
The goal of the course is an introduction into the pathomechanism of the allergies based on the previous Basic Immunology knowledges. Parallel to this the basic clinical knowledges, the diagnostic possibilities, and the basis of therapeutical approaches will be discussed. Invited clinicians will present lectures about the airway allergies, nutritive allergies, and dermatological diseases.
