The 10th Drug Hypersensitivity Meeting (DHM) will take place in Verona, Italy, from 27 – 29 April 2023. This EAACI focused meeting is usually held biannually, but due to the COVID-19pandemic the meeting scheduled for 2020 was postponed and will be held in 2023. In 2022 a digital DHM meeting was held with a special focus on COVID-19 infection and vaccines.
The Drug Hypersensitivity Meeting was first held in Bern in 2004 and has since been held in in Liverpool 2006, Paris 2008, Rome 2010, and Munich 2012. Since the 2014 meeting in Bern, it has become an EAACI focused meeting successfully held in Malaga in 2016, and Amsterdam in 2018.
The DHM is an interdisciplinary meeting, bringing together researchers and physicians from different disciplines and different parts of world, to exchange their most up-to-date data in the continually evolving field of drug hypersensitivity, and to transfer them into clinical practice. It is the leading event of its kind, attracting up to 600 physicians and researchers.
The meeting includes plenary lectures, parallel symposia, pro-con debate sessions, breakfast seminars, and clinical cases.
The scientific program covers a wide range of topics related to drug hypersensitivity in both basic science and clinical research and in immediate and delayed type hypersensitivity.
Again, we will discuss the most recent and topical challenges in our day-to-day practice. This includes the checkpoint inhibitors and the role of genetics, epigenetics and enzymes, and old challenges such as hypersensitivity to antibiotics and anaesthetics, along with the mechanisms of hypersensitivity reactions.
We hope that you will take this great opportunity to not only expand your own horizons in terms of knowledge, but also to network and meet old and new friends and future collaborators.
Lastly, we are sure you will enjoy the very attractive and beautiful city of Verona where you can enjoy the city centre with its old buildings, museums, and very good restaurants.
We look forward to seeing you in DHM Hybrid 2023!

We look forward to welcoming you to the 10th anniversary edition of the Drug Hypersensitivity Meeting in the beautiful city of Verona, Italy on 27-29 April 2023.
The EAACI focused meeting was held for the first time in 2004 and has gathered hundreds of delegates throughout its nine previous editions. DHM is an interdisciplinary and buzzing setting where healthcare professionals and scientists can learn about the latest developments and transfer know-how to their practices and laboratories.
We take pride in the vastly international mix of our audience, which ensures all national priorities and challenges in the field of drug hypersensitivity are properly covered – yours and fellow peers participation is therefore of great value.
This year DHM will become the perfect platform for our community to have access to the latest and cutting-edge molecular and cellular tools for allergy diagnosis in basic and clinical sessions. Participants will learn from experts how to apply these tools and will be presented with the possibility to exchange with peers coming from all over the world.
The scientific programme will include sessions on various topics of interest such as: clinical approaches of drug allergy; pathomechanisms of delayed reactions; Severe Drug Hypersensitivity Reactions; Management of patients with Clonal Mast cell Disease and drug allergy; new technologies in drug hypersensitivity; immunology beyond drug allergy; delayed hypersensitivity reactions; new approaches in Drug Hypersensitivity; the role of the MRGPRX2 receptor for immediate non allergic drug hypersensitivity reactions; drug allergy in children, and more. There is something for everyone, so make sure to join us!We hope you enjoy this meeting and take this opportunity to not only expand your horizon in terms of knowledge but also networking and personal development.
