Managing Anaphylaxis Away from Home
Anaphylaxis is a potentially severe, systemic allergic reaction, with an estimated population prevalence of 5%.1, 2 Adolescents and young adults (YA) may be at particular risk for anaphylaxis, given both emerging developmental skills that may lead to risk taking behaviors and failure to appropriately treat allergic reactions3, and the challenge of transition in management responsibilities of personal health conditions to the teen from their caregivers. The purpose of this perspective is to highlight the potential causes of anaphylaxis in this poorly studied demographic falling somewhere between the child and adult (ages wh...

Preparing Adolescents for Independent Asthma Management: Gaps and Opportunities
Adolescence is a vulnerable time for patients with asthma, marked by higher mortality rates1 and lower usage of preventative asthma medications.2 Appropriate transition to an adult provider to prevent lapse in care is important. Research on transition care in patients with asthma is lacking, despite it being the most prevalent chronic disease among adolescents and young adults (AYA).3 We conducted an exploratory survey study to characterize patient reported transition experiences and factors affecting transition to an adult provider for asthma management.

Early solid introduction to prevent IgE-mediated food allergy should continue unabated while we learn more about FPIES prevalence
Food protein-induced enterocolitis syndrome (FPIES) is a non-IgE-mediated allergy that typically presents in infancy with introduction of infant formula or solid foods. While previously thought to be rare, recent studies have reported a notable increase in prevalence, particularly among peanut and egg (Table 1). FPIES to peanut has historically been uncommon. Interestingly, several case series have described increased incidence of peanut FPIES in recent years and cited the 2015 Learning Early about Peanut Allergy (LEAP) study as a potential driving factor.

Assessing Meaningful Change in the Asthma Impairment and Risk Questionnaire
The Asthma Impairment and Risk Questionnaire (AIRQ) is a 10-item, yes/no, equally weighted control tool. Lower scores indicate better control. Seven impairment items reflect prior 2-week symptoms, and three risk items assess prior 12-month exacerbations. The Follow-up AIRQ for use between annual assessments has a 3-month recall period for exacerbation items. (Source: Annals of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology)
