Overview

The pediatric program of this workshop held in April 2003 was devoted to addressing the escalating and changing epidemiology of allergic diseases such as asthma, allergic rhinitis, and atopic eczema in the past decade. That this pattern is true only in developed nations suggests environmental triggering factors. This volume contains 16 for the most part previously unpublished presentations and discussions.
