To the 15th International Paul-Ehrlich-Seminar in Bad Homburg, Germany, Maritim Hotel

Time flies when you are having fun! It has been already three years since the last IPES was held: three years during which exciting new developments have occurred in regulation and science concerning allergen products for diagnosis and therapy!

We proudly present this year´s programme and are very pleased that so many exquisite experts have followed our invitation to Bad Homburg to present and discuss these novel insights and trends in regulation, science, clinical research and manufacturing of allergen products.

The 15th IPES will proceed to serve as a forum for interdisciplinary exchange of thoughts, for taking the broader view and add new impetus to complex topics in the world of allergens and regulatory affairs.

At this point, we would like to thank our colleagues from the FDA , EAACI and DGAKI for their valuable support and ongoing sound cooperation.

On behalf of the Scientific Committee and the Local Organizing Committee of the 15th International Paul-Ehrlich-Seminar we wish you a fruitful and informative meeting and a pleasant stay in Bad Homburg.

With best regards,

Stefan Vieths, Vera Mahler
