As my sixteen year tenure as Editor-in-chief of the Annals of Allergy Asthma and Immunology draws to a close, I am reflecting on the challenges, victories and failures that have occurred that shaped the journal and the impact they had on me personally. Looking back, I can think of no greater impact on this process than the privilege I had to know and work with my editorial predecessor, Edward J. O'Connell, MD . To know Ed was to love and respect him. If he knew this tome was going to be published as a “Giants in Allergy-Immunology” feature, I strongly suspect he would blush and protest that he was no giant &nda...

It comes as no surprise that the delivery and payment for healthcare services in the United States is constantly changing. Recently, the federal government through the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Innovation (CMMI) was instructed to work toward value-based healthcare delivery models.1 CMMI was developed to address these challenges through creativity and innovation.2 The allergy-immunology specialty is small (less than 6,000 physicians), but our perspective of our nation's healthcare delivery system may be instructive for all of medicine as we adapt to these and other disruptive changes in healthcare.

Background Prenatal vitamin D3 supplementation has been linked to reduced risk of early-life asthma/recurrent wheeze. This protective effect appears to be influenced by variations in the 17q21 functional single nucleotide polymorphism rs12936231 of the child, which regulates the expression of ORMDL3 (ORM1-like 3) and for which the high-risk CC genotype is associated with early-onset asthma. However, this does not fully explain the differential effects of supplementation. We investigated the influence of maternal rs12936231 genotype variation on the protective effect of prenatal vitamin D3 supplementation against offspring ...

Conclusion This analysis demonstrates marked heterogeneity within, and overlap between, physician-assigned diagnosis and severity groups in patients with asthma and/or COPD. Current diagnostic and severity classifications in clinical practice poorly differentiate between clinical phenotypes that may have specific risks and treatment implications.

This study aimed to determine whether SAD presents histological abnormalities in the setting of normal CT imaging and FEV1&FEV1/FVC.METHODS: A cross-sectional study was performed in 64 patients undergoing thoracotomy for pulmonary nodules. Thoracic high-resolution computerized tomography (HRCT), bronchodilation test, fractional exhaled nitric oxide (FENO), and the alveolar component of FENO (CANO) were obtained before surgery. Lung pathology and levels of cytokines in lung tissue were measured. The patients were divided into SAD and small-airway normal-function (SAN) groups according to forced expiratory flow at 75% an...
