    Book Summary

    Provides clinicians, scientists, educators, and regulators with an authoritative review of the field. • Combines our knowledge and hypotheses about food allergy treatments, research directions, bioinformatics tools, and industry and governmental regulation guidelines into one valuable reference. • Examines the identification and characterization of allergenic proteins within food sources, the underlying mechanisms of action, and treatment options. • Emphasizes clinical aspects of food allergy and advances in diagnosis; cutting edge immunochemical theories and molecular mechanisms; immunotherapy and the role of animal models in advancing food allergy research; the effects of food processing on allergenicity; and methods for preparing hypoallergenic foods. • Features in-depth coverage of bioinformatics tools.
