Abstract

Allergen avoidance, allergen immunotherapy, IgE antagonists, biological medications, prevention and treatment of respiratory infections, probiotics, adapted formula, vitamins, and oligo-elements have been investigated as strategies in the prevention of allergic diseases. Promising findings were obtained. To prevent allergic diseases could be a dream that will be soon realized in clinical practice.
