Our group is working in several issues linked to immunological pathways of allergy diseases, including allergic asthma. One goal is to know the influence of fat-soluble vitamins (vitamin A & vitamin D), which are needed to maintain good health. In the same line, we have several ongoing projects about immunological mechanisms in new biological therapies applied to allergy. We have been also working in projects of genetic and pharmaco-genetic studies in allergy diseases and about the clinical relevance of new mites in Allergy Rhinitis. Finally, we are studying mechanism of desensitization in protocols to treat cow’s milk protein and egg-protein allergy.
