Environmental Diagnostics Laboratory writes chapter on indoor air pollutants in newly published book on Allergen Immunotherapy

April 5, 2017

Allergies and causative allergens affect millions of people worldwide every year. The newly published book Allergy and Allergen Immunotherapy: New Mechanisms and Strategies, edited by A.B. Singh, provides industry leading knowledge on airborne allergens in both indoor and outdoor environments from Europe, the U.S., India, and Iran.

Written by internationally recognized experts in the field the book includes chapters about:

  • Epidemiology, Pathophysiology, and Diagnosis of Allergy

  • Aerobiology and Allergic Diseases

  • Pollen Allergy in the Tropics and Temperate Regions

  • Indoor Air Pollutants

  • Allergy in Children

  • Food Allergy Evaluation

  • Allergen Immunotherapy and Anti IgE

Chapter 6, Indoor Pollutants with Reference to Health and Hygiene, was authored by Dr. Rajiv R. Sahay, director of Environmental Diagnostics Laboratory (ED Lab) and Alan L. Wozniak, President of Pure Air Control Services, Inc.

“In recent years, indoor air quality has become significantly important due to energy tight buildings and changing habits of occupants. In fact, the EPA has ranked indoor air pollution amongst the top five environmental dangers.” says Dr. Rajiv Sahay, director of EDLab, “I am delighted to summarize this complex topic to make users knowledgeable about investigations and methods for the appropriate management of indoor air quality.”

This chapter discusses how health and hygiene are affected by common air pollutants found inside of buildings. It also covers the testing, analysis of numerical reference points for indoor air pollutants. Other features include comprehensive keywords and reference sections. In the chapter you will find a numerical referenced IAQ guideline to indoor air quality baseline conditions.  This information provides insight on both quantitative and qualitative indoor pollutant levels and what is considered to be normal in today’s buildings.

The book, as a whole, not only deals with the basics of allergies, immunotherapy and indoor air quality, but also covers safety considerations of genetically modified food allergens. This innovative volume is well suited for aerobiologists, clinicians, environmentalists, and regulatory agencies. It would also be of interest for clinicians and patients of allergies as well as the diagnostic and therapeutic management of allergies in tropical regions.
