dc.description.abstractIn the last century alone, allergy has gained its fame throughout the world. Affecting close to one billion people worldwide, allergies have changed their status from being considered a rare disease to being a common medical problem, heavily disturbing many individuals and impacting the universal public health system. The State of World Allergy Report of 2008 mentions that allergies are not only affecting quality of life, but also may present mortality risks, thereby affecting the length of life as well.1 This has lead to the efforts of many academics including those collaborated with the European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology who realize that there is an increased need for research to fill in the major knowledge gaps in this area of study.en_US
