ABSTRACT Introduction: Anaphylaxis is responsible for considerable morbidity and may in some cases prove fatal. Areas covered: This review summarises the findings from recent studies on the epidemiology and aetiology of anaphylaxis and draws on the insights from this work and recent international guidelines to consider the implications for clinical care. Acute management of anaphylaxis is centred on early recognition, treatment with adrenaline (epinephrine) and other essential life-support… Expand
World allergy organization anaphylaxis guidance 2020
TLDR
The rationale of this updated position document is the need to keep guidance aligned with the current state of the art of knowledge in anaphylaxis management, as well as their affordability for some patients. Expand
Application of precision medicine to the treatment of anaphylaxis
TLDR
Patients with first-line therapy-induced anaphylaxis are candidates for desensitization to increase their quality of life and life expectancy and to provide tools for the diagnosis of the underlying cause(s) and set up a long-term treatment to prevent recurrence. Expand
Anaphylaxis in the 21st century: phenotypes, endotypes, and biomarkers
TLDR
A better understanding of the pathophysiology of anaphylaxis is provided with a description of phenotypes, endotypes, and biomarkers available in both the clinical and research settings to improve its diagnosis and management, increase patient safety, and decrease morbidity and mortality. Expand
[Chlorhexidine anaphylaxis in a perioperative context: diagnosis and management].
TLDR
Perioperative anaphylaxis is a rare, but potentially fatal event; proper identification of the drug or substance responsible for the reaction by using allergy tests decreases unnecessary pharmacological restrictions and avoids re-exposure. Expand
Complications of Immunoglobulin Therapy and Implications for Treatment of Inflammatory Neuropathy: A Review.
TLDR
The importance of safe IVIg administration is emphasised and practical measures to minimise complications of this therapy are highlighted, including thromboembolic events and acute kidney injury. Expand
Pediatric urticaria in the Emergency Department: epidemiological characteristics and predictive factors for its persistence in children.
TLDR
The AU etiology identified by history in the ED may be a significant predictor of persistence after a first attack of AU, and is significantly most common in males and pre-school children. Expand
Significant predictive factors of the severity and outcomes of the first attack of acute angioedema in children
TLDR
The co-occurrence of pyrexia or urticaria, etiologies related to medications or infections, the presence of respiratory symptoms, and a history of allergies were predictors of severe angioedema and short-term POU observation and prompt treatment might be benefit for patients who did not require hospital admission.

HYPERSENSITIVITY REACTIONS AND ANAPHYLAXIS TO CHECKPOINT INHIBITOR-MONOCLONAL ANTIBODIES AND DESENSITIZATION.

TLDR
Hypersensitivity reactions and anaphylaxis have been identified as potential side effects induced by checkpoint inhibitor-monoclonal antibodies and drug desensitization is a safe and effective treatment option for patients who suffer hypersensitivity reactions in need of these monoclonan antibodies to improve cancer outcomes. Expand
Anaphylaxis after ingestion of dust mite (Dermatophagoides farinae)-contaminated food: A case report.
TLDR
The investigations showed that the patient was sensitive to house dust mites and oral ingestion of dust mite-contaminated food was the culprit of this severe allergic reaction. Expand
Factor XII in coagulation, inflammation and beyond.
TLDR
FXII/FXIIa induces the expression of inflammatory mediators, promotes cell proliferation, and enhances the migration of neutrophils and lung fibroblasts, and it has been reported that genetic ablation of FXII protects against neuro inflammation, reduces the formation of atherosclerotic lesions in Apoe-/- mice, improves wound healing, and inhibits postnatal angiogenesis.

Anaphylaxis: guidelines from the European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology
TLDR
These guidelines aim to provide evidence‐based recommendations for the recognition, risk factor assessment, and the management of patients who are at risk of, are experiencing, or have experienced anaphylaxis, and to prevent future episodes by developing personalized risk reduction strategies including, where possible, commencing allergen immunotherapy.

TLDR
The illustrated World Allergy Organization (WAO) Anaphylaxis guidelines focus on the supreme importance of making a prompt clinical diagnosis and on the basic initial treatment that is urgently needed and should be possible even in a low resource environment. Expand

TLDR
Patients who have an anaphylactic reaction have life-threatening airway and breathing problems usually associated with skin or mucosal changes and should be treated using the Airway, Breathing, Circulation, Disability, Exposure (ABCDE) approach. Expand
