This marks ANGANY’s first corporate sponsorship of a scientific meeting. The International Symposium on Molecular Allergy is a specialty meeting of the European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology held every other year. Molecular allergy is part of the science of allergy that understands that allergens, the very cause of symptoms in allergic individuals, are components or molecules, most often proteins. These allergenic molecules are central to the accurate diagnosis and treatment of allergy relating to the corresponding source such as pollens, animal dander or food items. As a matter of example, human allergy to cats relates most often to a protein called Fel d 1 while allergy to peanuts is believed to relate mostly to a protein called Ara h 2.
