Scientists Discover Cells That Could Make Allergy Research More Targeted, Improving Our Understanding of How Allergies Develop

Research published today in Science Translational Medicine has shown that immune cells with a distinct protein profile are found in the blood of patients with diverse environmental and food allergies (including peanut, pollen, pet dander and mold) but absent from individuals who do not have allergic conditions. This new finding, from a team of researchers… Continue reading Scientists Discover Cells That Could Make Allergy Research More Targeted, Improving Our Understanding of How Allergies Develop

Less Than Half of Young People With Anaphylaxis Are Given Epinephrine Before Reaching Hospital

Epinephrine is the only first-line treatment for anaphylaxis, a severe, life-threatening allergic reaction. However, a July 2017 study suggests that most children and young adults receiving emergency care for anaphylaxis are not given epinephrine at the onset of symptoms, when the life-saving medication is most effective. Published in the Annals of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology,… Continue reading Less Than Half of Young People With Anaphylaxis Are Given Epinephrine Before Reaching Hospital

Study: Patient-Centered Outcomes in Food Allergy

Patient-centered outcomes research is a recent and promising development in healthcare that expands how we assess the impact of disease. In addition to tracking physiological and medical outcomes such as deaths or hospitalizations, patient-centered outcomes research seeks to measure how health conditions – and their management and treatment – affect quality of life. Food allergy… Continue reading Study: Patient-Centered Outcomes in Food Allergy
