Identifying the mechanisms of drug hypersensitivity

Drug allergies are a significant medical problem, but their underlying pathogenesis is not well understood. Unravelling the genetics and mechanisms leading to adverse hypersensitivity to drugs is key to preventing these life-threatening events, and accelerating the development of better targeted diagnostic and therapeutic options. This Collection brings together the latest evidence in this rapidly growing field by gathering basic science and translational research on the different types of immune-mediated drug hypersensitivities.
