Anxiety and Depression Effects during Drug Provocation Test
Conclusions There is a significant and strong correlation between the loss of psychic equilibrium and the development of a placebo reaction during a DPT. We suggest the use the HADS or other validated questionnaire in clinical practice before a DPT to evaluate the possible psychiatric components.

Usmani, Job F.M. van Boven Nonadherence to treatment, and its associated health and economic burden, is particularly problematic in asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease management because of heterogeneous patient populations and the need for an inhaled route of drug administration. Symptom variability, comorbidities, and device switching further add to suboptimal adherence rates. As opposed to controlled clinical trials, real-life studie...

Prevalence and Outcomes of Primary Immunodeficiency in Hospitalized Children in the United States
Conclusions The prevalence of PIDDs in the hospitalized pediatric population in the United States may have increased over time. Younger age is associated with higher mortality, hospital costs, and LOS.

The Prevalence of Food Sensitization Appears Not to Have Changed between 2 Melbourne Cohorts of High-Risk Infants Recruited 15 Years Apart
Conclusions The prevalence of food sensitization among high-risk infants has remained stable in Australia since the 1990s, despite the reported increase in food-related anaphylaxis in the same period. This discrepancy could be due to increased food allergy in the low-risk population, increased conversion of food sensitization to allergy, or increased number of high-risk infants. Alternatively, increased awareness or severity of reactions may have led to an apparent increase in food allergy. (Source: The Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology: In Practice)

Evaluation of Potential Continuation Rules for Mepolizumab Treatment of Severe Eosinophilic Asthma
Conclusion There was no evidence of a reliable physician-rated response, ACQ-5 score, or lung function–based continuation rule. The added value of changes in blood eosinophils at week 16 over baseline was marginal. Initiation criteria for mepolizumab treatment provide the best method for assessing patient benefit from mepolizumab treatment, and treatment continuation should be reviewed on the basis of a predefined reduction in long-term exacerbation frequency and/or oral corticosteroid dose.

The high number of symptomatic males and patients with estrogen-independent FXII-HAE found here suggests that male sex and the absence of a hormonal influence should not discourage clinicians from searching for F12 mutations in cases of HAE with normal C1-INH.
