iCAALL

Hundreds of millions of people in the world suffer from allergies, and it is estimated that 300 million have asthma*. Inadequate or improper diagnosis and treatment of these chronic diseases and of immunodeficiency disorders results in lost productivity and substantial medical and socioeconomic burdens throughout the world.

Recognizing a lack of consensus-driven information and general recommendations, four of the most influential Allergy/Immunology professional organizations have joined forces to launch the International Collaboration in Asthma, Allergy and Immunology (iCAALL). Participating in iCAALL are the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology (AAAAI), the American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology (ACAAI), the European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (EAACI) and the World Allergy Organization (WAO).

iCAALL is designed to collect and disseminate consensus-driven information about allergies, asthma and immunological diseases. Communicating this knowledge can positively impact diagnosis and treatment, as well as cost containment and policy decisions.

A major focus of this initiative is the production of a series of International Consensus (ICON) reports. These documents offer general recommendations based on global challenges in caring for patients with allergic and immunologic diseases.

The following ICONS have been published:
