Basic and Clinical Immunology Section - About Us

The immune system is able to distinguish self from non-self and dangerous from harmless. Allergic diseases represent the most notable failure in this system. The understanding, the research, diagnosis and management of allergies are therefore always related to immunology. Biologicals are becoming available that can selectively correct overshooting immune reactions. At the same time the costs of treatments increase and personalized approaches along with a sophisticated biomarker diagnosis are required to focus expenses to those patients who are most likely to benefit from it.
