Azathioprine Hypersensitivity Syndrome in a Cohort of Antineutrophil Cytoplasmic Antibody-Associated Vasculitis Patients
ConclusionsAzathioprine hypersensitivity syndrome is strikingly common in ANCA-associated vasculitis, might be associated with reduced TPMT activity, is accompanied by an increase in neutrophil counts, and may occur even during concomitant prednisolone therapy. Proper recognition may prevent unnecessary hospital procedures and damage to the patient. (Source: The Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology: In Practice)

ConclusionAvailable evidence suggests that PID patients have a lower HRQL than healthy individuals and patients with other chronic conditions, including diabetes mellitus and juvenile idiopathic arthritis. No disease-specific instruments are available for children and few options are available for adults. This finding highlights the need for developing PID-specific instruments which would allow for a more sensitive evaluation of PID impact on patient health and psychological wellbeing, school/work and social activities.

AAAAI/ACAAI subcutaneous immunotherapy (SCIT) surveillance study (2013-2017): fatalities, infections, delayed reactions and use of epinephrine auto-injectors
ConclusionsThere is an unexplained slight increase in SCIT-related fatalities for 2015-2017, although mean annual reported events over 9 years (0.8 fatal reactions/year) have declined. SCIT-related infections were not identified during two years of surveillance. The 15% incidence of delayed-onset SRs (> 30 min) is similar to a prior annual survey. Prescribing epinephrine auto-injectors for SCIT does not appear to improve outcomes, possibly due to low rates of self-administration.
