Summary

There is a significant health problem associated with allergy and intolerance to man-made chemicals, both in terms of the severity of the clinical condition and the seriousness of interference with life quality and in terms of the number of exposed people.

Recognizing the growing importance of the problem, the World Health Organization Regional Office for Europe and the Commission of European Communities (Health and Safety Directorate) jointly organized a Workshop on Allergic Responses and Hypersensitivities Induced by Chemicals, which was held in Frankfurt/on Main, Federal Republic of Germany, from 12 to 15 October 1982.
