Herzlich Willkommen auf der Homepage des Instituts für Pathophysiologie und Allergieforschung!


Gegründet im Jahr 1873
gehört das IPA zu den ältesten Forschungsinstituten der Medizinischen Universität Wien.
Derzeit haben wir 130 interdisziplinäre und internationale MitarbeiterInnen, deren Forschungsarbeit darauf abzielt, pathophysiologische Vorgänge besser zu verstehen und daraus innovative Konzepte zu entwickeln, die der Diagnose, Prophylaxe und Therapie von Erkrankungen dienen. Zusätzlich legen wir Wert auf höchste Qualität in der Lehre und Ausbildung von MedizinerInnen und NaturwissenschafterInnen. Darüber hinaus bietet das IPA die postgradualen
Ausbildungen zu FachärztInnen für Pathophysiologie und Immunologie an.

July 30, 2019, Nature Communications 10, 3298, by Jordakieva et al.: Antiacids drugs prime subsequent anti-allergy prescriptions. 30% of 30-years old, and 33% of 60-year old Austrians are treated with gastric acid-inhibitors. As a continuation of their previous works, the team around Erika Jensen-Jarolim performed a population-wide study in Austria and found a significant correlation between the intake of these drugs and symptoms of respiratory allergies, treated by H1R blockers and allergen-specific immunotherapy.
