Allergy and Allergen Immunotherapy: New Mechanisms and Strategies is a valuable and comprehensive book that covers allergy and causative allergens and provides diagnostic and therapeutic aspects as well. With chapters from internationally recognized experts in the field, the book provides a balanced approach to enumerating pollen allergens as well as allergy diagnosis and therapeutic management and safety assessment of genetically engineered food allergens.
The book features a special section on allergic diseases and allergens from tropical countries, including such countries such as India, Sri Lanka, Iran, and South Korea, giving the book a global appeal.
The book is broken in the following sections:
The book deals not only on basics of allergy and allergen immunotherapy but also discusses indoor environments and safety considerations of genetically modified food allergens. The first of its kind volume from the Indian subcontinent that caters to the needs of clinicians, aerobiologists, environmentalists, and regulatory agencies as well, the volume will be of immense interest for clinicians and patients of allergy as well as diagnostic and therapeutic management of allergy in tropics.
"In this very interesting book, Prof. Singh has brought together authorities from several different countries, and together they have produced a detailed account of the regional differences in allergenic pollen, providing a wealth of information for allergists, aerobiologists, botanists, and others interested in this fascinating branch of medical science."

"A fascinating book on a fascinating subject. Books published on allergies from India are rare. Dr. Singh has brought together a collection of well-known authors from India and other countries. The chapters are superbly divided and the book will be a treasure trove of allergy information from the Indian subcontinent. Doctors (particularly those who work in the field of allergy), scientists, and researchers will refer to this book for reliable and important information on allergy for several years."
