ConclusionsAppropriate policies to manage food anaphylaxis events and anaphylaxis management training were missing in a substantial proportion of camps. Camp-tailored food allergy training is needed given the number of camps reporting food allergy reactions requiring epinephrine.
ConclusionsA multicenter, international study of simulated pediatric anaphylaxis reveals (1) variation in management between institutions in the use of protocols, cognitive aids, and medication formularies, (2) frequent errors involving epinephrine, and (3) latent safety threats related to cognitive aids among multiple sites.
CONCLUSION: This indicated we need to examine the rinoconjuctivitis and oral allergy syndrome related to herbaceous pollen carefully.The importance of airborne pollen surveys for the treatment of the patients with pollen allergies was suggested. PMID: 31827031 [PubMed - in process]
CONCLUSION: In the training courses of registered dietitians, the practice of food allergy education is hardly adequate, and the educational sites seem to recognize the problem, but they are also pessimistic regarding the improvement of the situation due to the difficult problems that were revealed in this survey. From now on, it is strongly expected for the government and its people to work together to improve the current situation. PMID: 31827030 [PubMed - in process]
CONCLUSION: Following OIT, the assessment using exercise provocation tests should be performed prior to termination of exercise restriction because some patients remain intolerant to exercise. PMID: 31827029 [PubMed - in process]

(NIH/National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases) As antibiotic-resistant bacteria become more urgent threats worldwide, the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases will provide up to $102.5 million in renewed funding over seven years for the Antibacterial Resistance Leadership Group (ARLG). This global consortium of scientific experts leads a comprehensive clinical research network overseeing research on important scientific questions related to antibacterial resistance.
