Food allergy has now reached epidemic proportions in the UK where the personal, social and economic cost extends not only across the nation but affects other developed countries as well. This has prompted the House of Lords Science and Technology Committee to publish its report on allergy (September 2007) in which they conclude that evidence-based research into food allergy is urgently needed to ensure that sound scientific evidence underpins public policies.

The aim of this first EuroScicon meeting on Food Allergy is to provide a wider perspective, being unlimited in scope. It strives to provide a broad overview of the following;

food allergies and intolerances the susceptibility to food allergy early life origins of food allergy food tolerance versus food sensitisation effects of food processing on food allergenicity industrial dimensions of food allergy food allergy and the processing of protein allergens by antigen-presenting cells novel foods
