FDA warns of potentially fatal skin reaction with ziprasidone
The Food and Drug Administration is warning that the atypical antipsychotic ziprasidone (Geodon) may be associated with a rare but potentially fatal skin reaction. The agency issued the communication on Dec. 11, saying that it had...googletag.display('div-gpt-ad-cta');
Frito-Lay today issued a limited voluntary recall of 7 3/4 oz. bags of Lay ’s Lightly Salted Barbecue Flavored Potato Chips because they may contain undeclared milk ingredients. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk run the risk of a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if
Authors: Dosoky NS, Satyal P, Pokharel S, Setzer WN Abstract Rhododendron anthopogon D. Don., A small compact Himalayan shrub growing in Nepal, is a known medicinal plant used to treat sore throat, colds, blood disorders, bone disease, potato allergies, and vomiting, and to relieve liver disorders, headaches and back pain. The present study investigated the chemical composition and bioactivities of the leaf essential oil from R. anthopogon from Dhankuta, Nepal. The essential oil from leaves was obtained by hydrodistillation and a detailed chemical analysis was conducted by gas chromatography - mass spectrometry.(GC...
EpiPens and other autoinjectors filled with epinephrine to treat severe allergic reactions may still be potent enough to work many months past their labeled expiration date, according to a new study that concludes patients might need expensive refills less often.Reuters Health Information
ConclusionNo medical cause was found to explain the disability. Findings support that the condition is a form of IEI and belongs to functional somatic syndromes (FSS). Instead of endless avoidance, rehabilitation approaches of FSS are applicable.
AbstractPurpose of ReviewCharcot-Leyden crystals (CLCs), slender bipyramidal hexagonal crystals, were first described by Jean-Martin Charcot in 1853, predating Paul Ehrlich ’s “discovery” of eosinophils by 26 years. To date, CLCs are known as a classical hallmark of eosinophilic inflammation. CLC protein expresses palmitate cleaving lysophospholipase activity and is a member of the family of S-type lectins, galectin-10. We summarize current knowledge regarding t he pathological observations of CLCs and their mechanism of generation focusing on eosinophil cell death.Recent FindingsThe presence of CLCs...

Mastocytosis is associated with impaired flow-mediated dilation that is more evident in patients with advanced disease and elevated serum tryptase. Endothelial dysfunction seems to be related to mast cell burden rather than to mediator-related symptoms.
We wish to thank Br åbäck et al1 for their interest in our recent review on epigenetic inheritance in allergic disease2 and for alerting us to errors in the table. We have requested that these be corrected.
We read with great interest the recent review on epigenetic inheritance in patients with allergic disease.1 The evidence for epigenetic transmission of allergic disease across generations in human subjects is discussed by the authors. We have a few further comments, and some errors in the presented table need to be corrected.
Publication date: July 2019Source: Materials Science and Engineering: B, Volume 246Author(s): Francisco Quintanilla, Susana Vargas, Domingo Rangel, Ulises Merino, Rogelio RodríguezAbstractA novel method is proposed to determine whether two proteins from different sources can be, potentially, candidates for cross-reactions allergies. The cross-reaction allergies are usually based on the similarity, partial or total, of the amino acids sequences of both proteins; however, according to our results, the recognition between proteins from different sources is carried out at secondary structure level; at this level the loc...
