iFAAM: Integrated Approaches to Food Allergen and Allergy Risk Management


Publications are how the results of clinical research are reported to fellow researchers. They are also read by the media, patients organisations, and other interested parties. Therefore it is important that research is written up and published in reputable, well regarded research journals so the findings can help progress knowledge in the field.


Analysing results and writing them up is a time-consuming process and then the time between submitting the findings to a journal and actual publication is often at least a few months This means there is often a delay between finishing a research study and publication. This is understood by the research world but everyone involved in the process works hard to keep the period between analysis to publication as short as possible.

Here is a list of the publications published so far from the results of the EuroPrevall study, but since there are further publications in different stages of the process, this page will be updated regularly when publications are finalised.
