umbrella concept


Explanation:
umbrella term

or perhaps generic term, but this may be dangerously pseudo-scientific in this context.

'distinguishing the most serious forms ... from the wider category /umbrella concept / of hypersensitivity syndromes

Sekkebegrep is an all-in-one, overall expression - the Norwegians put everything in one 'sack', and we apparently crowd everything in under the same umbrella...
