Explore the latest in allergy and clinical immunology, including asthma, food allergy, immunotherapy, atopic dermatitis, and more.
This analysis uses Markov simulations of the Chicago Public Schools system to define value-based strategies and cost-effectiveness of undesignated school stock epinephrine programs based on analysis of children with peanut allergies.
This systematic review and meta-analysis synthesizes the available literature to evaluate the association between atopic dermatitis and suicidality.
This JAMA Patient Page describes evaluation for and diagnosis of penicillin allergy.
This narrative review summarizes the epidemiology of penicillin allergy and the clinical consequences of misattributing adverse drug events to β-lactam allergy, including development of antimicrobial resistance and adverse events associated with alternative antibiotics, and proposes an algorithm to facilitate evaluation of true penicillin allergy.
A 67-year-old man with type 2 diabetes, unintentional weight loss, and increasing fasting blood glucose levels showed diffuse enlargement of the pancreas with peripheral hypoenhancement but no discrete mass on CT scan and soft tissue surrounding the abdominal arteries and left ureter causing hydronephrosis. Testing showed no pancreatic malignancy, no abnormal findings on colonoscopy, and lab results showed elevated IgG4. How would you interpret the test results?
This cross-sectional study examines gender equity in the presidential leadership of medical specialty societies over a 10-year period.
This survey study provides nationally representative estimates of the distribution, severity, and factors associated with adult food allergy in the United States.
This medical record review evaluates the efficacy and safety of dapsone as second-line therapy in patients with chronic spontaneous urticaria.
This cohort study assesses the use of a blood test to distinguish galactose-α-1,3-galactose (α-gal) allergy from chronic urticaria.
This case report describes changes in repeated patch test results in a patient receiving dupilumab therapy.
This clinical birth cohort study evaluates the association of genetic, environmental, clinical, and social factors with the persistence of atopic dermatitis at age 13 years among children born to parents with asthma.
This Viewpoint discusses recent findings associating atopic dermatitis in infants with increased sensitization to peanut protein and how those findings are informing new guidelines and efforts to prevent peanut allergy.
This meta-analysis of 67 observational studies analyzes the effectiveness and adverse event rate of omalizumab therapy in patients with chronic idiopathic urticaria and compares these findings with those of randomized clinical trials conducted among similar patients.
This Special Communication from the Neurosarcoidosis Consortium Consensus Group describes the clinical manifestations and process of diagnosing neurosarcoidosis as well as the efforts to establish standard definitions and diagnostic criteria for this disease.
This randomized clinical trial compares the ability of lanadelumab—a human monoclonal antibody that selectively inhibits active plasma kallikrein—vs placebo to prevent angioedema among patients with types I and II hereditary angioedema.
This economic evaluation uses a cost-effectiveness model with inputs including allergy fatality rates, device carriage rates, and market device costs to investigate the value-based price of an epinephrine autoinjector for children with peanut allergy.
This Medical News article discusses why many patients have mistakenly been labeled as allergic to penicillin and the impact that can have on their health.
