The Allergology Teaching Unit is led by allergy and immunology professionals from the Internal Medicine Department (General Hospital), and from Paediatric Allergies from the Respiratory Medicine, Cystic Fibrosis and Allergy Department (Maternity and Children's Hospital). The Unit’s healthcare activities are divided into outpatient clinics, the day hospital and medical interconsultations. We were the first to use molecular diagnostics for complex allergic conditions in Catalonia and we are the leading centre for rare disorders such as hereditary angioedema and systemic mastocytosis.

The unit carries out clinical research in the fields of anaphylaxis, hereditary angioedema, food allergies and chronic urticaria. In terms of experimental research , we offer the opportunity to carry out specific immunoglobulin E and G tests by biochip, and basophil activation tests.
