Abstract It has been a little more than 50 years since we discovered IgE, a key molecule for the allergic response and a target for treating allergies and severe asthma. Here, I trace my career, from the kindling of my interest in immunochemistry to groundbreaking discoveries in the biology and chemistry of immunoglobulins. I describe my service to the broader community of immunologists and my role in shaping departments and research institutes. My course starts in Japan and includes Southern California, Baltimore, and Denver. PMID: 29677471 [PubMed - in process]

Chamber and Field Studies demonstrate Differential Amb a 1 Contents in Common Ragweed Depending on CO₂ Levels. Allergy Asthma Immunol Res. 2018 May;10(3):278-282 Authors: Choi YJ, Oh HR, Oh JW, Kim KR, Kim MJ, Kim BJ, Baek WG Abstract Although atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO₂) has no apparent direct effect on human health, it does have direct effects on plants. The present study evaluated the influence of increased CO₂ levels on the concentration of allergens from common ragweed pollen by setting up a chamber study to model future air conditions and a field study to evaluate current air conditions...

Background: Asthma has been linked with prolonged time to pregnancy, but our knowledge of asthma and infertility is limitedObjective: To explore a possible association between asthma and infertilityMethods: All pregnant women referred to Hvidovre Hospital (HVH) have been offered enrolment into the Management of Asthma during Pregnancy (MAP) program since 2007. Pregnant women were eligible for the present study provided they had a diagnosis of asthma and had their first visit to the respiratory outpatient clinic within the first 18 weeks of pregnancy (cases). Controls were the three consecutive women giving birth at HVH. In...

Environmental exposures are becoming increasingly recognized as important contributors to health. Over the last decade, a significant number of studies have examined the relationship between ambient air and traffic-related air pollution and the incidence of asthma, cardiovascular disease, and reproductive outcomes. Proximity to major roadways has recently been shown to impact time to pregnancy and infertility rates.1 We sought to determine if residential proximity to in-state major U.S. highways and interstates impacts IVF outcomes.

Conclusion: To address the many challenges posed by EDCs, we argue that Africans should take the lead in prioritization and evaluation of environmental hazards, including EDCs. We recommend the institution of education and training programs for chemical users, adoption of the precautionary principle, establishment of biomonitoring programs, and funding of community-based epidemiology and wildlife research programs led and funded by African institutes and private companies. https://doi.org/10.1289/EHP1774 Received: 16 February 2017 Revised: 22 May 2017 Accepted: 24 May 2017 Published: 22 August 2017 Address correspond...
