Papers 1 - 20 of 328 in Allergy, S
  1. BACKGROUND: Anaphylaxis is a serious allergic reaction that is rapid in onset and may cause death. Allergists and emergency department (ED) physicians recognize the need for multidisciplinary efforts to increase public awareness of anaphylaxis,…
  2. Previously healthy children hospitalized with respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) received motavizumab (3, 15, or 30 mg/kg intravenously), an RSV-specific monoclonal antibody, or placebo. Safety, tolerability, motavizumab concentrations, and…
  3. Background: Anaphylaxis after Hymenoptera sting has been described in patients with mastocytosis. Venom immunotherapy (VIT) is a safe and effective way to treat patients with Hymenoptera anaphylaxis, but few studies have addressed its usefulness in…
  4. Background: Immunotherapy with the SQ-standardized grass tablet Grazax is efficacious and well-tolerated in adult patients with rhinoconjunctivitis. Allergic asthma and rhinoconjunctivitis are closely linked, and a strategy combining treatment of…
  5. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the safety and efficacy of long-term intraarticular (IA) steroid injections for knee pain related to osteoarthritis (OA). METHODS: In a randomized, double-blind trial, 68 patients with OA of the knee received IA injections of…
  6. Background: Hereditary angioedema caused by C1 inhibitor deficiency can be life threatening. Acute exacerbations are treated with intravenous purified, pasteurized C1 esterase inhibitor concentrate at doses of 500-1000 IU. Methods: We reviewed the…
  7. The efficacy of bacille Calmette-Guérin (BCG) may be enhanced by heterologous vaccination strategies that boost the BCG-primed immune response. One leading booster vaccine, MVA85A (where "MVA" denotes "modified vaccinia virus Ankara"), has shown…
  8. Immunotherapy is the only treatment for allergy that has the potential to alter the natural course of the disease. Sublingual immunotherapy for grass pollen-induced rhinoconjunctivitis has been developed to make immunotherapy available to a broader…
  9. BACKGROUND: Omalizumab (Xolair) is a recombinant humanized monoclonal anti-IgE antibody with proven efficacy in patients with moderate-to-severe and severe persistent allergic (IgE-mediated) asthma. OBJECTIVE: To review clinical study data to assess…
  10. This paper has two objectives: to identify and review factors that research has shown to be most significant in determining the effectiveness of warnings; and, to offer suggestions regarding challenges and opportunities for future research on…
  11. This research sets out to estimate the effects of vehicle incompatibility on the risk of death or major injury to drivers involved in two-vehicle collisions. Based on data for 2,999,395 drivers, logistic regression was used to model the risk of…
  12. Background: Oral immunotherapy (OIT) offers a promising therapeutic option for peanut allergy. Given that during OIT an allergic patient ingests an allergen that could potentially cause a serious reaction, the safety of OIT is of particular concern.…
  13. BACKGROUND: Sublingual treatment of grass pollen induced rhinoconjunctivitis might provide easier access to specific immunotherapy (SIT) and minimize the risk of serious adverse events (AEs) compared to subcutaneous SIT. AIM OF THE STUDY: To…
  14. BACKGROUND: Although the role of immunoglobulin E (IgE) in immunity against helminth parasites is unclear, there is concern that therapeutic antibodies that neutralize IgE (anti-IgE) may be unsafe in subjects at risk of helminth infection.…
  15. Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) is widely used in the treatment of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). Even if it is generally agreed that pregnancy per se increases disease activity in patients with SLE and that withdrawal of HCQ at the onset of pregnancy…
  16. Background: Investigative bronchoscopy was performed in a subset of participants in the Severe Asthma Research Program to gain insights into the pathobiology of severe disease. We evaluated the safety aspects of this procedure in this cohort with…
  17. Background: Safety of long-acting beta agonists (LABA) has been questioned and recent evidence suggested a detrimental effect on asthma control as well as an increased risk of death. Objective: To evaluate the safety of regular use of LABA compared…
  18. Interleukin-9 (IL-9)-targeted therapies may offer a novel approach for treating asthmatics. Two randomized placebo-controlled studies were conducted to assess the safety profile and potential efficacy of multiple subcutaneous doses of MEDI-528, a…
