Smartphone App Allergy Study

The free "e-symptomes" app is an extension of the allergy study conducted in the context of the EU research project HIALINE, headed by Prof. Jeroen Buters from the Helmholtz Zentrum München. People suffering from allergies and asthma can daily enter their symptoms in an electronic diary. It generates a statistical analysis and every patient receives a personal evaluation. The data is processed anonymised; a PIN function in the app protects the personal data. The broad scope of the study centres around the connection between the amount of pollen, the release of allergens and the symptoms caused. The study aims to significantly improve the prediction of symptoms.
