The International Symposium of the Spanish Society of Allergology and Clinical Immunology (SEAIC), has been held at the Palma Congress Center, gathering more than 1,500 specialists.
Under the motto "Personalized Allergology: Immunotherapy and Drug Allergy", the scientific event aimed to address the new advances and challenges in these two highly relevant areas. As the president of the SEAIC, Dr. Antonio Valero, has pointed out, “the public health system needs to have allergy services in all the country. For this reason, we're happy that the Balearic government will create the first public allergology service on the islands next year”.
In addition, the Symposium addressed other issues, highlighting the importance of accurate diagnosis and treatment personalization .
Thus, issues such as allergen immunotherapy (ITA), immunoregulation, molecular diagnosis in ITA, allergy to beta-lactams or hypersensitivity to vaccines were discussed. The latter has been one of the most debated issues during the pandemic. As explained by Dr. Nancy Ortega, coordinator of the Symposium's Drug Allergy Committee, "the fear of severe reactions to vaccines represented a barrier to the adequate progress of these programs, limiting vaccination coverage, especially among allergic patients." .
This year, the SEAIC will also carry out an environmental impact initiative, which will consist of planting a tree for each congress attendee in an area of Galicia deforested by recent fires and which also pursues the objective of improving air quality , thus contributing to better respiratory health.
