Synopsis:
The ABC of Allergies is a thorough and practical guide to the treatment and diagnosis of allergies. Now in its second edition, this fully revised and updated text contains information about all major allergies, including food allergies, adverse drug reactions, venom allergy, anaphylaxis and hay fever. Asthma, rhinitis and allergic skin and eye diseases are also covered in great depth and there are new chapters on latex allergy, allergy to local and general anaesthetic drugs and allergen immunotherapy.


The chapters – all written by internationally acclaimed experts – include:


  • Diagnosing allergy
  • Pathogenic mechanisms: a rational basis for treatment
  • Avoiding exposure to indoor allergens
  • Allergy in general practice

The ABC of Allergies will prove invaluable to general practitioners and practice nurses and will be a perfect reference for immunologists and basic scientists working in this area. It is also an ideal teaching resource.
