Again in 2015 CK-CARE can report successful activities and important results that also have an impact on allergy sufferers. For instance, considerable progress has been made in terms of measuring allergy triggers and environmental influences.
The barrier function of the skin, which is central to protecting against allergy triggers, has been further understood and in studies has been improved in a therapeutically effective way. CK-CARE identified factors that enable at-risk children to be identified and promptly protected against developing allergies. Furthermore, food ingredients were discovered which have a preventive effect and may be used in future to prevent allergies. The education of medical primary care providers, as the second major pillar of CK-CARE activities along with research, has been further expanded and continually improved by thorough evaluation. In 2015 the Global Allergy Forum was held for the third time with great success.
