Abstract

Manuscripts published in the "Mechanisms of allergy and clinical immunology" section of the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology during 2012 enhanced our knowledge of the involvement of cytokines and other mediators in allergic disorders and described novel approaches for understanding mechanisms of allergic and immunologic diseases. Also published were articles focused on mechanisms of allergen-specific immunotherapy and the development of novel antiallergic treatments, as well as strategies to achieve tolerance to allergens. The highlights of these studies and their potential clinical implications are summarized in this review.
