EFA president Mikaela Odemyr participated in the Paediatric Allergy and Asthma Meeting - PAAM 2017 in London last 26 - 28 October, organised by the European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (EAACI).

Children and young patients are usually particularly affected by allergy and airways diseases, which may affect their self-steam and have consequences on the correct management and self-management of their disease. 

EFA members Spanish AEPNAA (Asociación Española de personas con alergia a alimentos y látex) and Food Allergy Italia also participated, showing how isolating food allergy can be. 

The PAAM programme covered contemporary aspects of asthma, food allergy, anaphylaxis, atopic eczema, immunotherapy and eosinophilic gastrointestinal disorders. For example, new insights into immunological mechanisms that underpin successful tolerance induction to foods was presented.
