"Weiterbildungsermächtigung" Allergy


We are primarily devoted to identify allergenic (glyco-/lipo-) proteins in allergen sources, to isolate and structurally characterize them. These well-characterized molecules are used to improve allergy diagnostic tests, a prerequisite for patient-tailored diagnostics, and as tools for investigating the influence of allergen structures on allergy / asthma development and on the severity and organ-manifestations of allergic symptoms. In the course of the projects, marker allergens will be identified that will allow to determine the individual risk of patients a.) to develop allergy and/or asthma, and b) in the case of already existing allergy to predict the severity of a reaction and/or the exacerbation of a pre-existing bronchial asthma.
