Stocking EpiPens at Restaurants Might Reduce Fatal Allergic Reactions Stocking EpiPens at Restaurants Might Reduce Fatal Allergic Reactions
If restaurants and other food establishments stocked epinephrine autoinjectors, the number of fatal allergic reactions, known as anaphylaxis, could decrease, a small study in Canada suggests.Reuters Health Information

ConclusionsFindings suggest that iron (III) isomaltoside 1000 is associated with a higher reporting rate of severe HSRs related to estimated exposure than ferric carboxymaltose in European countries. Future research investigating the occurrence of severe HSRs associated with i.v. ferric carboxymaltose and iron (III) isomaltoside 1000 is needed to broaden the evidence for benefit-risk assessment.

This composite hydrogel reflects the enzymatic hydrolysis profiles of penicillinviaβ-lactamase. The determination of β-lactamase by this hydrogel was achieved through an “ON–OFF–OFF–ON” fluorescence trigger pattern. The potency of1@SA was further demonstrated for its selectivity, sensitivity and convenient visual detection. To cite this article before page numbers are assigned, use the DOI form of ...

Anaphylaxis represents a severe allergic reaction that is rapid in onset and can be fatal 1. Epinephrine is the first-choice medication in the treatment of anaphylaxis, both in the community and in the hospital setting 2. Nonetheless, epinephrine is largely underused 3. The purpose of this study was to examine the reasons that currently motivate professionals to treat anaphylaxis with epinephrine in the Emergency Department (ED) and the prescription of EAI for outpatient use after the allergy workup.
CONCLUSIONS: Findings of the complex omics technologies need to be evaluated by comprehensive prospective studies in order to validate their clinical relevance and suitability for personalized medicine in allergology. PMID: 30515524 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

However, a little information is available on its antiasthmatic activity. Jujuboside B (JB) is a natural saponin and one of the active constituent of fruits of Zizyphus jujuba. In the present investigation, JB was isolated from ethanolic extracts of fruits of Zizyphus jujuba (EZJF). EZJF and JB wer...
The atomizer is a handy tool to instill life-saving medication into the nose, and you should consider stocking them if you don't already. An atomizer can be used to administer naloxone and countless other drugs as well as for moderate sedation and pain control. Pediatric and adult patients alike can benefit from intranasal fentanyl or Versed. Studies on intranasal epinephrine for anaphylaxis also look promising, but it does require a higher dose—5 mg instead of 0.3 mg. (Asian Pac J Allergy Immunol 2016;34:38; http://bit.ly/2Prpjhb.)The atomizer is easy to use and can be attached to any syringe. Each spray creat...
