Condolences Anthony F.Frew

ÖGAI conveys the sincerest condolences to the death of Professor Anthony F.Frew. He was president of EAACI in 2006, when the EAACI Meeting has taken place in Vienna.


Today the very sad news of the death of Professor Anthony J. Frew caused deepest sorrow within the EAACI Family.

Professor Anthony J. Frew was President of EAACI between 2005 and 2007. He also served the Academy as Secretary General between 1999 and 2005, as EAACI Congress Chair in 2010 in London, as Ethics Committee Chair between 2016 – 2018 and as a leader of many Task Forces. In 2011 he was awarded the EAACI Charles Blackley Medal for Promotion of the Specialty in Europe. Professor Frew was also President of the British Society of Allergy and Clinical Immunology and in that capacity he focused on strengthening the links between EAACI and BSACI. While being a key opinion leader in allergen immunotherapy his research also focused on air pollution and on improving the care pathways for a better and early diagnosis of patients with allergic diseases.

We are deeply saddened by this early and unexpected death. Professor Frew was one of the greatest people in the EAACI, and the whole allergy world. It is an irreparable loss for our specialty and for our Academy. Professor Frew was a fantastic scientist and physician, a dedicated friend and magnificent personality who will be sadly missed by everyone who met him or knew of his achievements.

I would like to convey my heartfelt condolences and sympathy to the grieving family, especially to Professor Frew's wife and our very good friend Professor Helen Elizabeth Smith.

Ioana Agache
EAACI President
