Allergy, Asthma & Clinical Immunology
Publisher: BioMed Central
Allergy, Asthma & Clinical Immunology (AACI), the official journal of
the Canadian Society of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (CSACI), is an
open access journal that aims to further the understanding and
treatment of allergic and immunologic disease.
By offering a high-visibility forum for new insights and discussions,
the journal provides a platform for the dissemination of allergy and
clinical immunology research and reviews amongst allergists,
immunologists and other physicians, healthcare workers, medical
students and the public world wide.
The fields of allergy and clinical immunology concern human diseases
in which disorders of the immune system play a significant role. It is
considered that diseases of the immune system are best understood
through a clear grasp of normal immune mechanisms and the ways in
which these processes become dysfunctional.
AACI reports on basic research and clinically applied studies in the
following areas and other related topics: asthma and occupational lung
disease, rhinoconjunctivitis and rhinosinusitis, drug
hypersensitivity, allergic skin diseases, urticaria and angioedema,
venom hypersensitivity, anaphylaxis and food allergy, immunotherapy,
immune modulators and biologics, immune deficiency and autoimmunity, T
cell and B cell functions, regulatory T cells, natural killer cells,
mast cell and eosinophil functions, complement abnormalities.
