Abstract

Allergology and Clinical Immunology (ACI) is an area of clinical medicine with a precise identity, relevant recent scientific achievements and well-defined educational and professional needs. In spite of the high individual and socio-economic impact of allergic diseases in Europe, the organization of ACI services is imperfect and varies among countries according to their health policies and priorities. In the firm belief of the role of ACI specialists in addressing clinical issues related to the involvement of the immune system in health and diseases - such as vaccination, immunodeficiencies, susceptibility and response to microbial agents, autoimmune and allergic diseases, immune aspects of transplantation and malignancies, in vivo and in vitro immunological tests, vaccinations, immuno-modifiers - the European Academy of Allergology and Clinical Immunology appointed an ad hoc Task Force to produce standards for ACI Services in Europe. The resulting position paper should be used as a consulting reference for National Health Services as a necessary pre-requisite for the free circulation to patients and health care professionals.
