«…Die lange Autorenliste liest sich wie ein Who's who der Forschung im Bereich des atopischen Ekzems. Die Einzeldarstellungen sind zu ausgezeichneten Übersichten, das jeweilige Thema betreffend, ausgearbeitet. Das Themenspektrum reicht von Allergie und Umwelt über die Immunpathogenese hin zu klinischen Aspekten und der Therapie des atopischen Ekzems….
Der Band ermöglich somit eine sehr schöne Übersicht über aktuelle Erkenntnisse der Forschung zum atopischen Ekzem von den Grundlagen bis hin zu den klinischen Anwendungen und ist daher mit grossem Gewinn zu lesen für jeden, der sich mit der Erforschung des atopischen Ekzems im Besonderen, aber auch mit allergischen und entzündlichen Erkrankungen im Allgemeinen beschäftigt.»

‘The Editors of this particular volume are well renowned experts in the field, based at the dermatology and allergy polyclinic in the ZAUM (Zentrum Allergie und Umwelt), part of the Technische Universitat Munchen…. In summary, this book will be found to be a concise and authoritative source of reference for senior clinicians and basic researchers at the forefront of managing severe atopic dermatitis and its consequences. It includes brief but up to date summaries of the existing field, as well as pointers to future lines of investigation.’

New Trends in Allergy and Atopic Eczema, the 96th volume of Chemical Immunology and Allergy, is one of the most useful texts of its type and a must-read book for trainees, clinicians, and researchers engaged in the study of allergy and atopic eczema.

An excellent collection of state-of-the-art reviews
Allergy and allergic diseases have increased in prevalence worldwide during the last decade. Relevant determinants influencing the development of allergic inflammation come from the environment and are either enhancing (e.g. environmental pollutants both indoors and outdoors) or protective (e.g. parasite infestations causing early stimulation of the immune system). In spite of considerable progress in experimental allergology and immunology, there is still a great discrepancy between theoretical knowledge and practical performance in the routine treatment of patients with allergies. The development of new therapeutic and preventive strategies for the future management of allergy is dependent on a better understanding of the pathomechanisms and molecular pathways involved.
Based on an international symposium, this volume summarizes the latest findings in epidemiology, pathophysiology, and clinical aspects of allergic diseases such as asthma, food allergy, and, especially, atopic eczema. Risk factors for the development of allergies and novel treatment strategies are carefully evaluated. This update is essential reading for anyone interested in allergy: doctors working in the clinical fields of dermatology, pneumology, internal medicine, pediatrics, ENT, epidemiology and public health, as well as researchers in molecular genetics, immunobiology, food and nutrition sciences, and pharmacology.
