The prevalence of allergic disease and asthma has increased dramatically over the past decades. Allergic disease arises as a result of aberrant immune responsiveness against innocuous environmental proteins (antigen). The most important determinant for the development of allergy and asthma is also genetic predisposition, environmental factors, such as exposure to allergens, infections, and air pollution plays an important role in the development of allergic and asthmatic inflammatory responses.
Asthma, allergy, environmental factors.
