Why do excessive reactions of the immune system occur? A person's genetic predisposition plays a role in the development of allergies, but which specific gene variants are involved? And how does the interaction with triggering environmental factors work? Which treatment options are available for allergies in different organ systems? The different areas of allergy research are working on answers to these complex questions. The study platform offers an opportunity to participate in current allergy research projects.

Clinical trials platform: Allergies have developed into one of the most common widespread diseases. Clinical studies are necessary to better understand this development and to develop new strategies for treatment and prevention. Researchers depend on your help as an affected person. ...read more (in German)
