Activities

The identification, isolation and characterization of allergens is crucial for diagnosis and therapy of allergic disorders. The team focuses on the analysis of respiratory and food allergens from animal origin. A large panel of characterized fish and furry pet allergens became available during the past decade.

The use of single allergens in IgE-diagnosis allows to discriminate between a primary sensitization and cross-reactivity, a first step into personalized diagnosis and treatment. We are closely linked to the clinic through our partner, the National Service of Immuno-Allergology at CHL. The analysis of common allergen features helps to understand the allergic immune response and as a perspective, to develop strategies for patient immunotherapy.
