Food allergy is an important public health problem that affects children and adults and may be increasing in prevalence. Despite the risk of severe allergic reactions and even death, there is no current treatment for food allergy: the disease can only be managed by allergen avoidance or treatment of symptoms. The diagnosis and management of food allergy(More)
BACKGROUND Moderate-to-severe allergic rhinitis (AR) is a challenge to treat, with many patients using multiple therapies and achieving limited symptom control. More effective therapies must be developed and tested in well-controlled, randomized, prospective studies with a direct comparison to current standards. OBJECTIVES The aim of these studies was to(More)
Several unmet needs have been identified in allergic rhinitis: identification of the time of onset of the pollen season, optimal control of rhinitis and comorbidities, patient stratification, multidisciplinary team for integrated care pathways, innovation in clinical trials and, above all, patient empowerment. MASK-rhinitis (MACVIA-ARIA Sentinel NetworK for(More)
OBJECTIVE To improve understanding of the epidemiology of anaphylaxis. DATA SOURCES We performed a qualitative review by hand of the major epidemiology studies of anaphylaxis. This review was restricted to articles in the English language. STUDY SELECTION Articles chosen were selected by the committee and dated back to 1968. There was no specific(More)
BACKGROUND It is unclear what constitutes a clinically meaningful response for allergic rhinitis (AR) outcomes. The objectives of these post hoc analyses were (1) to define a clinically meaningful response using novel efficacy analyses (including a responder analysis), and (2) to compare the efficacy of MP29-02 [a novel intranasal formulation of azelastine(More)
The density and species prevalence of dust mites were determined at various times over a 5-year-period in 252 homes of dust mite sensitive people with asthma who lived in eight geographic areas of the United States (Cincinnati, Ohio; New Orleans, La.; Memphis, Tenn.; Galveston, Texas; Greenville, N.C.; Delray Beach, Fla.; San Diego and Los Angeles, Calif.).(More)
BACKGROUND Although nonallergic rhinitis is a well recognized entity, its incidence and therapy have not been definitively studied. Recent epidemiologic studies and treatment trials have furthered our knowledge regarding the frequency of occurrence of this disorder and effective treatment modalities. OBJECTIVE To review and put into perspective recent(More)
The most common agents that are responsible for intraoperative anaphylaxis are muscle relaxants. However, latex accounts for a significant number of these reactions, and the incidence of intraoperative anaphylaxis caused by latex is increasing. It is now probably the second most important cause of intraoperative anaphylaxis. Following muscle relaxants and(More)
BACKGROUND The epidemiology of anaphylaxis is uncertain, especially its geographic distribution. OBJECTIVE To address this deficit, we examined regional rates of EpiPen prescriptions in the United States. METHODS EpiPen prescriptions in 2004 were obtained for all 50 states and Washington, DC, from NDCHealth, Pharmaceutical Audit Suite (Alpharetta, Ga).(More)
