EAACI Publishes the First European Guidelines for food-Allergy Sufferers
Date:6/24/2013

MILAN, June 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Europe's foremost scientific allergy authority, the European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (EAACI), has just published the Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Guidelines, the first comprehensive clinical guide for the prevention and treatment of food allergies and severe, even potentially fatal, allergic reactions.

EAACI presented the guidelines today in Milan at the World Allergy Congress, attended by 8,000 delegates. The guidelines offer practical recommendations not only for doctors and patients, but also for schools, communities, regulators, the food industry, and insurance companies.

EAACI research reveals that over 17 million Europeans, and one in four school children, suffer from food allergies. The traditional perception of food allergy as a nuisance-itchy hives, a runny nose, or diarrhea-is altered, raising it to a higher level of scientific understanding and classification. The evidence collected by EAACI task forces shows that hospital admissions for anaphylaxis (severe, often lethal allergic reaction) have risen seven-fold in the past 10 years.

ESTIMATED OCCURENCES OF FOOD ALLERGIES IN EU COUNTRIES Population Food (in Allergy EU Countries millons) Occurence 1,6% Denmark 5,4 (86.000) 2% UK 60,9 (1.200.000) 2% Greece 11 (220.000) 2,5% Poland 38,2 (950.000) 2,5% Netherlands 16,3 (407.000) 3% Spain 44,5 (1.330.000) 3% Switzerland 7,5 (225.000) 3,5 % Italia 60,3 (2.100.000) 3,5 % Germany 82,6 (2.900.000) 3,5 % France 63,2 (2.200.000)

Despite these numbers, until now, evidence-based, clinical guidelines for everyday use have been nonexistent in Europe.
