Section edited by Georges Herbein, Rachel Miller and Kari Nadeau
This section publishes high-quality and innovative research generated from basic science, animal and translational clinical studies that focus on epigenetic regulation in the induction or control of allergic disease, asthma and other immune responses and on epigenetic mechanisms involved in infectious diseases and inflammation. Research on the application of epigenetic analyses to the prediction, diagnosis, and treatment of allergic disease, infectious diseases and inflammation are particularly welcomed. These may also include reports on the interface between environmental exposures and epigenetic changes important to allergy, asthma, immunology, inflammation and infectious diseases. Laboratory studies that report on potentially new epigenetic targets related to allergy, asthma, immunology, inflammation and infectious diseases will also be considered.
