Allergy is a global clinical problem, but the answer to it lies in the allergen molecules. Only when understanding the mechanisms will we have a chance to prevent, diagnosis, and treat allergies in our patients in an optimal way.

NEW WAO RESOURCE WEBSITES
World Atlas of Aeroallergens
The World Atlas of Aeroallergens website has brought together experts from all the WAO regions to focus on the growing concern about indoor and outdoor allergens worldwide. The website provides AEROallergen information in regions, based on availability in existing database, published studies, up-to-date aerobiology websites, and national and regional society resources, and these data have been organized into a web-based atlas.
Eosinophils, Mast Cells, and Basophil Disorders in Allergy
The Eosinophil, Mast Cell, and Basophil Disorders in Allergic Disease website is a web-based resource for those interested in the role of these cells in allergy. The new resource includes a searchable reference list of recent publications, and a definitive view provided by WAO of why these cells are important in allergy. The resource also contains monthly article summaries and an Ask the Expert Feature.
