(HAMBURG, Pa.) — The spring breezes of 2020 are carrying more than just tree pollen. There’s a whiff of paranoia in the air. For millions of seasonal allergy sufferers, the annual onset of watery eyes and scratchy throats is bumping up against the global spread of a new virus that produces its own constellation of respiratory symptoms. Forecasters are predicting a brutal spring allergy season for swaths of the U.S. at the same time that COVID-19 cases are rising dramatically. That’s causing angst for people who never have had to particularly worry about their hay fever, other than to stock up on antihista...

IgG4-related disease (IgG4-RD) is a fibro-inflammatory disorder named upon the prominent IgG4+ plasma cells infiltrate in affected organs1-4. The aetiology of IgG4-RD is unknown and the pathogenicity of IgG4 antibodies remains a matter of a live debate1-5. In general, IgG4 antibodies are believed to dampen chronic inflammation thanks to their anti-inflammatory properties1. Yet, injection of patient derived IgG4 in mice induce IgG4-RD-like lesions, suggesting that IgG4 antibodies can cause tissue damage1.

Until recently, chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) was viewed as a chronic infectious disease of the sinuses caused by anaerobic bacteria. This dogma led to the concept that, as with any abscess in a closed space, the primary modalities of treatment should be surgical drainage and antibiotics. Not surprisingly, few patients responded favorably. Recent years have seen a revolution in our thinking, with the recognition that CRS is a chronic inflammatory disease —a syndrome comprising numerous chronic inflammatory diseases.

Black children have higher prevalence of asthma and increased rates of asthma morbidity and mortality than white children, which has been documented for decades, and this disparity remains persistent.1 In this issue of the Annals of Allergy, Asthma&Immunology, Sitarik et  al2 describe their study that determined whether disparities associated with asthma and allergy observed between black and white children at the age of 2 years remained at the age of 10 years. They found that at 10 years, black children were still more likely to have eczema, asthma, and allergen s ensitization compared with white children, even w...
