Abstract

It is estimated that at least one-fifth of the world’s population suffers from allergic diseases (atopic asthma and allergic rhinitis are the most common). Different factors contribute to the development of allergies; a predisposing genetic background is needed; however, environmental factors play an important role, among them is the exposure to infectious agents.
