The growing importance of food allergy is confirmed by recent epidemiologic data which show that food allergies affect about 13-18% of the population. Focusing on IgE-mediated allergy, this book presents the latest findings concerning the moleular characteristics of food allergens and the cross-reactivity betweeen different food allergens as well as between food and pollen allergens. Thorough coverage is given to gastrointestinal diseases caused by immunologic reactions to food in pediatric patients, prophylaxis, and the maturation of the immune system. Clinical experience with food allergies in different groups of patients is summarized in a number of papers, while others examine the allergenicity of different foods. Finally, a number of controversial issues in the diagnosis and treatment of food allergies are discussed by authors who take opposing standpoints - an approach designed to assist readers in forming their own opinions on these challenging issues.
