„THROUGH RESEARCH AND EDUCATION TOWARDS PREVENTION AND DISEASE MANAGEMENT“
Around a billion people worldwide are affected by allergic diseases and asthma. Research efforts have been made for nearly a century to unlock the secrets of these scourges of humanity. Yet there continue to be sizeable gaps in our knowledge about these diseases and, owing to the lack of scientific knowledge, the preventive and therapeutic options are still limited.
In the next five years CK-CARE will be concentrating research on the subject “immunotolerance in atopic diseases: lessons learnt from the natural course of diseases”. The underlying hypothesis is that a long-term strategy for influencing the disease can be developed if the natural course of atopic diseases is better understood.
