Food allergy prevalence has increased over the past 2  decades and is estimated to affect 8% of children and 4% to 10% of adults. There is an unmet need to evaluate new therapeutic modalities that may decrease the risk of food-induced anaphylaxis and improve patients’ quality of life. Oral, epicutaneous, and sublingual food immunotherapies have diff erent safety and efficacy profiles, and their long-term outcome and applicability are unclear. Food allergy trials are currently evaluating different biologics (given as monotherapy or adjunct to immunotherapy), modified food proteins, DNA vaccines, and fecal microbiota transplantation.

Subcutaneous immunotherapy (SCIT) is effective for allergic rhinitis and conjunctivitis, asthma, and insect venom hypersensitivity. The risk of severe allergic reactions induced by SCIT remains low, and mild systemic reactions have recently shown a tendency to decline. However, near-fatal and fatal anaphylactic reactions may occur. Clinicians administering allergen-specific immunotherapy should receive specialized training and be aware of risk factors and preventive measures to avoid severe allergic reactions induced by SCIT.

Two individuals with human immunodeficiency virus presented in acute renal failure with nephrotic range proteinuria and were diagnosed with secondary syphilis. One of them also had elevated transaminases. Kidney biopsies revealed membranous nephropathy, a rare complication of secondary syphilis, in both cases. Normal hepatic and renal function were restored after treatment with penicillin.

The subject matter of this report becomes increasingly relevant as the number of patients with chronic renal failure increases and their survival —and hence the period of time that dialysis access needs to be provided—also increases. The message provided in this paper is generally negative, as suggested in the title of “Patients with Lower Extremity Access Have Poor Primary Patency and Survival.”1 However, the information presented ne eds to be viewed in the appropriate context. Access procedures in the lower extremities may not be as durable as those in the upper extremities, but it is not as thoug...

In a move that defies public health logic, the Massachusetts Senate today voted for a bill that would ban the sale of virtually all e-cigarettes, but would allow non-mentholated real cigarette brands to remain on the shelves of all stores, including convenience stores and gas stations where youth have easy access to these products.There is simply no public health justification for taking e-cigarettes off the market but allowing youth to continue to have unfettered access to real tobacco products. The average annual death toll of these products is starkly different:Flavored e-cigarettes: 0Real cigarettes: 480,000Given the m...
