Proteomics in Schematic Assessment of Food Allergenicity is a novel scientific reference tool for the systemic analysis allergens including common allergens, acute urticaria, allergic rhinitis, asthma, and food allergies. It provides information on structural proteomics and its implication in protein allergenicity assessment and structures of allergenic proteins to explore the mechanistic basis of allergies. This reference offers existing structural data on allergenic proteins for understanding allergenic determinants to foster further research and assessment to improve and expand upon existing research data. This is a practical guide of methodology to assess allergen identification, its route of entry and the human allergic immune response. The book includes a variety of allergens such as tree nuts, peanuts, shellfish, milk, eggs, fish as well as other common allergies such as pollens (ragweed, timothy, birch), and dust mite feces.

Key Features

  • Includes a thorough discussion on protein allergenicity and novel methods of assessment
