STRATEGIC OBJECTIVES

  • Search for biomarkers, based on B cell epitopes and microRNA expression, to improve the diagnosis and treatment of food allergy.
  • To measure the quality of life and socioeconomic costs associated with food allergy.
  • To develop technological instruments for monitoring food allergy in patients undergoing immunotherapy. 
  • To assess the usefulness of the “in vitro” techniques of basophils activation and interleukins determination for the diagnosis and monitoring of desensitization treatment with chemotherapeutic agents and biological drugs. 
  • To assess the quality of life and associated costs of drug desensitization procedures. 
  • To assess the frequency of mast cell disease in patients with anaphylaxis.
  • To assess risk factors for severe asthma.
  • Technological and clinical validation of a respiratory exposure chamber against aeroallergens.Validación tecnológica y clínica de una cámara de exposición respiratoria frente a aeroalérgenos.

RESEARCH LINES
