Abstract

Allergic rhinitis is a major medical and socioeconomic problem due to its troublesome local symptoms, negative impact on quality of life, association with reduced productivity and increased absenteeism, its widespread nature, and the rapidly rising medical costs associated with the disease. Its handling depends on improved understanding of genetic, biological, environmental, and lifestyle predisposing factors, and the development of new and effective treatment strategies, both medically and focusing on the way we are living.
