    About the Special Issue

    Precision medicine has become popular over the recent years. Precision medicine is defined as a personalized approach that incorporates an individual's genetics, environment, and lifestyle to help determine the management and prevention of diseases. It can enhance the efficacy of the treatment regime and thus, lower the cost. Currently, precision medicine is hugely involved in the field of allergy and rhinology and there are challenges to be implemented.The goal of this special issue is to bring together the updates on precision medicine in rhinology and allergy.

    Keywords: Precision medicine, personalized medicine, biologics, molecular diagnosis, component resolved diagnosis, allergen-specific immunotherapy
