Special Focus Issue of Immunotherapy explores the use of allergen-specific immunotherapy

November 14, 2017

Immunotherapy, a leading MEDLINE-indexed journal, published by Future Science Group, has released a special focus issue providing insights into the latest advances in allergen immunotherapy covering both environmental and food allergies, with the aim of directing the improvement and optimization of immunotherapy for allergy specific treatments.

"Immunotherapy has been growing increasingly popular over the last few years, with the treatment of cancer being the main objective. This special focus issue has been a great opportunity to showcase the potential of immunotherapy outside of cancer and for treating and managing allergies", commented Sonia Mannan, Commissioning Editor of Immunotherapy. "We hope that the articles published in the issue will highlight how immunotherapy-based strategies can help overcome some of the limitations to current approaches for allergies."

This special issue combines a mixture of original research and longer articles to highlight how immune-based therapies for various allergies have the potential to impact the field. The Special Focus issue can be accessed on the Immunotherapy website here: https://www.futuremedicine.com/toc/imt/9/15

The Foreword for the issue is free to access and can be read here: https://www.futuremedicine.com/doi/10.2217/imt-2017-0157
