Frontiers in Clinical Drug Research - Anti-Allergy Agents: Volume 4

  • ID: 5188254
  • Book
  • October 2020
  • Bentham Science Publishers Ltd
Frontiers in Clinical Drug Research - Anti-Allergy Agents is a book series comprising of a selection of updated review articles relevant to the recent development of pharmacological agents used for the treatment of allergies. The scope of the reviews includes clinical trials of anti-inflammatory and anti-allergic drugs, drug delivery strategies used to treat specific allergies (such as inflammation, asthma and dermatological allergies), lifestyle dependent modes of therapies and the immunological or metabolic mechanisms that are of interest to researchers as targets for new drugs.

The fourth volume of this series brings 5 reviews which cover the following topics:

Anti-inflammatory and Immunomodulatory properties of medicinal plant products
Helminth therapy: a new tool for treatment of allergic diseases
An overview of anti-allergic medications in paediatric population
In-silico approaches in drug discovery and design of anti-allergic agents
Microbiota and allergy: possible Interventions

Frontiers in Clinical Drug Research - Anti-Allergy Agents will be of interest to immunologists and drug discovery researchers interested in anti-allergic drug therapy as the series provides relevant cutting edge reviews written by experts in this rapidly expanding field.
