Featured Review: EAACI's comprehensive position paper on skin microdialysis

Despite being available since the 1990s, skin microdialysis (SMD) has still not reached its full potential in allergic and inflammatory skin conditions. In this review however, EAACI's skin microdialysis (SMD) taskforce aim to encourage the use of SMD by providing an accessible overview of the methodology and wide-ranging applications of this versatile and minimally invasive sampling technique.

Featured Research: Identifying genetic mechanisms in atopy towards a more personalized approach

Researchers at the Erasmus University use gene expression profiles in immune cell lineages to define gene clusters within the atopy syndrome opening up possibilities for novel therapeutic targets and a more tailored approach towards personalized medicine.

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.

EAACI Junior Members must-read articles

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.

EAACI Junior Member interviews

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 a non-profit organization active in the field of allergic and immunologic diseases such as asthma, rhinitis, eczema, occupational allergy, food and drug allergy and anaphylaxis. EAACI was founded in 1956 in Florence and has become the largest medical association in Europe in the field of allergy and clinical immunology. It includes over 8,000 members from 121 countries, as well as 47 National Allergy Societies.

EAACI's mission is to promote basic and clinical research; to collect, assess and diffuse scientific information; to act as a scientific reference body for other scientific, health and political organisations; to encourage and provide training and continuous education, and to collaborate with patients and lay organisations.

The Academy aims to provide the most efficient platform for scientific communication and education in the field of allergy and immunology, ultimately striving to ease patients' lives.
