As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times. Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
COVID-19 and impact on peer review
Featured Review: Is diet partly responsible for differences in COVID-19 death rates between and within countries?
Since the outbreak in China, the COVID-19 pandemic has affected Europe. Interestingly, there is large variability across European countries in both incidence and mortality. Most current debates on COVID-19 focus on the differences among countries but little attention has been given to regional differences and diet.
Among the many possible areas of research, Bousquet et al suggest the importance of understanding diet and angiotensin-converting enzyme-2 (ACE2) levels in populations with different COVID-19 death rates since dietary interventions may be of great benefit.
Featured Research: EAACI Task force Clinical epidemiology of anaphylaxis: experts’ perspective on the use of adrenaline autoinjectors in Europe
Worldwide, guidelines recommend the use of adrenaline autoinjectors (AAIs) for self-medication in patients who experience severe allergic reaction. The European Medical Agency recommends the prescription of two AAIs, which should be carried by patients at all times. The European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology guidelines propose to prescribe a second AAI under some defined conditions.
In the present study, Kraft et al aimed to examine the adherence to these guidelines and prescription behavior of allergy experts regarding the number of AAIs prescribed for a given patient.

Aims and scope
Clinical and Translational Allergy, one of several journals in the portfolio of the European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology, provides a platform for the dissemination of allergy research and reviews, as well as EAACI position papers, task force reports and guidelines, amongst an international scientific audience.
Clinical and Translational Allergy accepts clinical and translational research in the following areas and other related topics: asthma, rhinitis, rhinosinusitis, drug hypersensitivity, allergic conjunctivitis, allergic skin diseases, atopic eczema, urticaria, angioedema, venom hypersensitivity, anaphylaxis, food allergy, immunotherapy, immune modulators and biologics, animal models of allergic disease, immune mechanisms, or any other topic related to allergic disease.
Open access publishing enables free access to all content ensuring a wide dissemination of articles; the electronic format and expert peer review allows for very rapid publication. Clinical and Translational Allergy is an international journal reaching out far beyond the borders of Europe, and invites clinicians and researchers from all countries of the world to contribute.
The EAACI Junior Members and Clinical and Translational Allergy are pleased to be working in conjunction to highlight must-read articles from recent publications. This collection aims to further the knowledge of medical residents and other young scientists.
Clinical & Tranlastional Allergy collaborates with EAACI Junior Members to produce interviews and podcasts featuring leading authors from recently published CTA articles.
We hope to shine a brighter light on our authors' world-leading research as well as provide EAACI Junior Members with the opportunity to meet and discuss the latest research with experts in the field.
The European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (EAACI) is an association of clinicians, researchers and allied health professionals, dedicated to improving the health of people affected by allergic diseases. With more than 11,000 members from 124 countries and over 50 National Allergy Societies, EAACI is the primary source of expertise in Europe for all aspects of allergy.
Allergic and immunologic diseases represent current crippling or life threatening conditions, and are a cause of worldwide concern. EAACI’s mission is to provide the most efficient platform for scientific communication and education in the field of allergy and immunology, ultimately striving to ease the lives of patients suffering from these diseases.
In pursuit of our mission, we seek to accomplish the following aims:
- Promoting basic and clinical research
- Collecting, assessing and disseminating scientific information
- Functioning as a scientific reference body for other scientific, health and political organisations
- Encouraging and providing training and continuous education
Promoting good patient care in this important area of medicine

Quote from the Editors
Dr Clive Grattan, St John’s Institute of Dermatology, London, UK
Dr Jean Bousquet, University of Montpellier, France
Clinical and Translational Allergy is a pioneering initiative to make high quality peer-reviewed research and reviews in allergy and related subjects available to clinicians, scientists and the public in an open-access format. Advances in allergy and immunology are being made in the clinic and in the laboratory at a rapid rate. CTA provides the platform for rapid dissemination of these findings to a wide audience to provide greatest impact and benefit to society.
