First paragraph (this article has no abstract)
The World Allergy Organization Journal (WAO Journal) has recently published a number of position papers, statements and guidelines on topics of global importance in allergy and clinical immunology, including hereditary angioedema , urticaria and angioedema , probiotics in pediatrics , biodiversity and allergic disease , as well as the latest ICON, or International Consensus document, on eosinophil disorders , an effort that the World Allergy Organization (WAO) led as a participating organization in the International Collaboration in Asthma, Allergy and Immunology (iCAALL). These key articles and more are free for download in Volume 5 of the Journal (http://www.waojournal.org webcite). This significant publishing activity represents the ongoing goals of the WAO Journal to provide the most up-to-date and useful information on critical topics of global relevance in the field of allergy/immunology. Since the switch by the World Allergy Organization (WAO) of its Journal to an online-only format five years ago, the Journal has disseminated timely, informative original studies and reviews that offer a global perspective. Now in the sixth year of publication, there are a number of important updates and changes regarding the WAO Journal that should be highlighted.
