this document is to examine the claims that probiotic supplements can be used
for the treatment of allergic diseases. Topics covered includes: Allergy,
Atopy, Allergic Diseases, Hygiene hypothesis, microbial origin of allergic
disease hypothesis, and probiotics, Probiotics and Allergic Disease, Quality of
Clinical Studies, Probiotics and Respiratory Allergy, Probiotics and Food
Allergy, Probiotics and Atopic Eczema, Some safety aspects of probiotics for
Allergic diseases, are a
number of conditions caused by hypersensitivity of the immune system to
something in the environment that usually causes little problem in most people.
The chapters included in the book Allergic diseases - New Insights addressed a
variety of important topics related to distinct aspects related to allergy. The
contribution of outstanding expert authors from many countries provided update
