As a group of allergists who treat both allergic rhinitis and urticaria patients on a daily basis, and involved in clinical research, we read with particular interest the review paper “Treatment of allergic rhinitis and urticaria: a review of the newest antihistamine drug bilastine”,1 published in your journal. Although the group of distinguished authors from the Asia Pacific Region provide an interesting insight into the burden of allergic diseases in this fast developing part of the world, no new data or insights are offered for the treatment of these diseases. Our attention was particularly drawn by Figure 9, which is partly based on data generated in a clinical study performed and published by our group.
