Abstract

The burden of allergic diseases (ADs) such as asthma and rhinitis and autoimmune disorders (AIDs) such as rheumatoid arthritis (RA) are relatively low/moderate in low and low-middle income countries and there is some evidence regarding higher incidence rates of these conditions amongst immigrant population settled in high income countries . The burden of ADs are particularly high in high income countries such as UK, Republic of Ireland and New Zealand . Studies in immigrants have been limited by several factors including relatively small sample size, shorter duration, and methodological issues such as selection bias, survey or questionnaire-based data, focus on a single or limited number of ADs or AIDs, and some not accounting for important disease confounders such as smoking history.
