Summary

This valuable work explores the comprehensive topic of pollinosis in allergic diseases. The first part of this book deals with the botanical aspects of pollinosis: physiology of pollen, aerobiology in the different countries, morphological data, and pollen chemistry. The drawings and tables are a valuable key for identification of pollens and preparation of pollen calendars. The other sections deal with the medical aspects of pollinosis: immunological basis, genetics, clinical pictures, diagnostic procedures and laboratory techniques, pharmacologic therapy and immunotherapy. Both the theoretical bases and practical applications are provided regarding each topic. Of tremendous benefit is the fact that, despite the book's focus on pollinosis, most sections are useful in facing all kinds of allergological problems. This book provides a basic reference for physicians and biologists involved in the field of allergy, both at the practical and research level.
