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...

Evidence is increasing of an association between asthma and aspects of female reproduction. However, current knowledge is limited and furthermore relies on questionnaire studies or small populations. In a prospective observational cohort study to investigate whether time to pregnancy, the number of fertility treatments, and the number of successful pregnancies differ significantly between women with unexplained infertility with and without asthma. 245 women with unexplained infertility (aged 23–45 years) underwent questionnaires and asthma and allergy testing while undergoing fertility treatment. 96 women enteri...

SPECIAL FROM You may watch what you eat, drink filtered water, and use your seat belt to protect yourself on the road. Yet many health hazards are lurking around us in not-so-obvious places. Here, a few to steer clear of:  1. Scented candles A fragrant candle may help you unwind and de-stress. But burning those containing a chemical calledlimonene, often used for citrus-scented candles, as well as many cleaning products, can produce fumes that are downright unhealthy. Recent British research found that households with a high levels of limonene correlated with high levels of formaldehyde, which irritates the eyes and ...

Conclusion A growing number of today’s children suffer from vaccine damage. Most individuals do not make the connection between health problems and vaccines. When asked about the cause of autoimmune disorders, asthma, allergies, diabetes, learning disabilities, attention deficit disorder, autism, and other common childhood diseases and illness, the majority of health care providers advise patients that the causes are unknown. Doctors, including most integrative physicians, fail to make the connection to vaccines. It takes one moment to permanently damage the health of an adult or child, but t...

This study investigated the association between HLA-G  gene  polymorphism  with repeated implantation failure (RIF). We used PCR followed by the sequencing technique for exons 2, 3, and 4, as well as intron 2 of the HLA-G gene in 100 couples with histories of two or more failed assisted reproductive technique (ART) attempts. The data were compared with the results of our previous study.The results indicated that some alleles of the HLA-G gene such as: 0106, 010106, 01010106 and 0105N (null) alleles were significantly higher in the patient group compared to the control group (p
