A teen told the restaurant he had a dairy allergy. Then his birthday meal killed him.

A London restaurant did not tell Owen Carey that his last meal was soaked in something that could kill him, a coroner concluded.

UCLA researchers are part of an international team that reported the use of a stem cell gene therapy to treat nine people with the rare, inherited blood disease known as X-linked chronic granulomatous disease, or X-CGD. Six of those patients are now in remission and have stopped other treatments. Before now, people with X-CGD – which causes recurrent infections, prolonged hospitalizations for treatment, and a shortened lifespan – had to rely on bone marrow donations for a chance at remission.“With this gene therapy, you can use a patient’s own stem cells instead of donor cells for a transplant,&rdqu...

(NIH/National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases) A Phase 1 clinical trial testing the safety and effectiveness of a monoclonal antibody (mAb) against malaria has begun enrolling healthy adult volunteers at the National Institutes of Health Clinical Center in Bethesda, Maryland. The trial, sponsored by NIH's National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), is the first to test mAb CIS43LS in humans. It aims to enroll up to 73 volunteers aged 18 through 50 years old who have never had malaria.

AbstractEarly life environmental risk factors are associated with chronic respiratory morbidity in child- and adulthood. A possible mechanism for this sustained effect is their influence on early life lung functional growth and development, a susceptible phase of rapid lung growth with increased plasticity. We summarize evidence of hereditary and environmental ante-, peri-, and early postnatal factors on lung functional development, such as air pollution, tobacco exposure, nutrition, intrauterine growth retardation, prematurity, early life infections, microbiome, and allergies and their effect on lung functional trajectori...

Choi Toll-like receptors (TLRs) represent a family of pattern recognition receptors that recognize certain pathogen-associated molecular patterns and damage-associated molecular patterns. TLRs are highly interesting to researchers including immunologists because of the involvement in various diseases including cancers, allergies, autoimmunity, infections, and inflammation. After ligand engagement, TLRs trigger multiple signaling pathways involving nuclear factor-κB (NF-κB), interferon-regulatory factors (IRFs), and mitogen-activated protein kinases (MAPKs) for the production of various cytokines tha...

Aspirin-exacerbated respiratory disease (AERD) is characterized by eosinophilic chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps, asthma, and upper-/lower-respiratory tract reactions to nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs. Persistent, severe disease, anosmia, and alcohol sensitivity is typical. AERD is mediated by multiple pathways, including aberrant arachidonic acid metabolism leading to elevated leukotriene E4 and decreased prostaglandin E2. Mast cell mediators (prostaglandin D2) and unique properties of eosinophils and type 2 innate lymphoid cells, along with receptor-mediated signaling, also contribute to AERD pathogenesis. P...

Peanut allergy has historically been difficult to manage, with most cases persisting into adulthood. Novel therapies for peanut allergy treatment are on the horizon, yet allergists must maintain a robust understanding of the risks and benefits of the current standard of therapy, avoidance diet.
