Management of primary antibody deficiency by consultant immunologists in the United Kingdom: a paradigm for other rare diseases. (1/201)

Variation in clinical practice and its effect on outcome is little known for rare diseases such as primary antibody deficiency. As part of a national audit a survey of all 30 consultant immunologists in the United Kingdom dealing with primary antibody deficiency syndromes in adults and children was carried out in 1993 to ascertain their practices in diagnosis and management. Consensus guidelines were published after the survey was completed. Comparison of the survey results of clinical practice at the time the guidelines were published with the standards identified highlighted that the practice of a minority of specialists was at variance with their peers and with the consensus document, particularly in the use of intramuscular immunoglobulin, the dose and frequency of intravenous immunoglobulin, and target trough immunoglobulin G concentration, which has implications for the quality of patient care. However, much closer agreement existed in the key areas of management, such as diagnosis and selection of intravenous immunoglobulin. The approach and the problems identified are relevant to the management of other rare diseases, in which diagnosis and management is complex and there are few specialists with the necessary knowledge to undertake such care. This survey, the first attempted audit of practice, shows that within a motivated group of specialists highly significant differences in practice may exist and the authors emphasise the importance of setting clear guidelines against which care can be assessed.  (+info)

Burnet Oration: living in the Burnet lineage. (2/201)

Scientific discoveries are not made in isolation. Innovation depends on resources, both intellectual and physical. A primary requirement is the development and maintenance of appropriate institutions. Such structures do not emerge by chance, but arise from opportunity, political will and the continued efforts and commitment of many people over long periods. Suitable buildings, laboratories and state-of-the-art equipment are obviously necessary, but hardware alone is of little value in the absence of a vibrant research culture. The key characteristics of the latter are intellectual foment, open debate and a body of wisdom and knowledge about the particular subject area. Rolf Zinkernagel and 1 played a part in triggering a paradigm shift in the understanding of T cell recognition, a contribution recognized by the 1996 Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine. In our Nobel lectures, we both discussed briefly why it was that the John Curtin School of Medical Research (JCSMR) of 1973-75 provided a milieu that facilitated the emergence of the underlying experiments and ideas. My intention here is to discuss in more detail the scientific lineages that put this physical and intellectual environment in place, focusing particularly on the influence of Sir Frank Macfarlane (Sir Mac) Burnet as we celebrate his centenary year.  (+info)

The discovery of T cell help for B cell antibody formation: a perspective from the 30th anniversary of this discovery. (3/201)

Thirty years ago, Miller and Mitchell described the bone-marrow origin of antibody-forming cells and the thymic origin of the help needed to activate the bone-marrow-derived antibody formation. Since then, there has been a continuous stream of discovery in Australia, from Zinkernagel and Doherty's description of MHC-restricted antigen recognition to Goodnow's dissection of the maturation and tolerization of antigen-specific B cells. All of these discoveries, and many more described in the text, contribute to the modern synthesis in immunology.  (+info)

Introduction to immunology and autoimmunity. (4/201)

Autoimmune disease occurs when the immune system attacks self-molecules as a result of a breakdown of immunologic tolerance to autoreactive immune cells. Many autoimmune disorders have been strongly associated with genetic, infectious, and/or environmental predisposing factors. Comprising multiple disorders and symptoms ranging from organ-specific to systemic, autoimmune diseases include insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus, rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, scleroderma, thyroiditis, and multiple sclerosis. There are also implications of autoimmune pathology in such common health problems as arteriosclerosis, inflammatory bowel disease, schizophrenia, and certain types of infertility. Largely of unknown etiology, autoimmune disorders affect approximately 3% of the North American and European populations, > 75% of those affected being women. This discussion provides a brief introduction to the immune system and tolerance maintenance, an overview of selected autoimmune diseases and possible mechanisms of immune autoreactivity, and a review of experimental autoimmune models.  (+info)

Progress in standardization: 4 immunological reagents. (5/201)

The need for material standards in the field of clinical immunology, together with the mode of operation of the combined World Health Organization/International Union of Immunological Societies programme for the provision of such standards, are discussed. Attention is drawn to the importance of the use of International Units in reporting concentrations of complex constituents, e.g., immunoglobulins in body fluids, and to the availability of standard materials against which such components can be calibrated. The necessity for the standardization of nomenclature is also emphasized.  (+info)

Transplantation and its biology: from fantasy to routine. (6/201)

The replacement of diseased organs and tissues by the healthy ones of others has been a unique milestone in modern medicine. For centuries, transplantation remained a theme of fantasy in literature and the arts. Within the past five decades, however, it has developed from a few isolated attempts to salvage occasional individuals with end-stage organ failure to a routine treatment for many patients. In parallel with the progressive improvements in clinical results has come an explosion in immunology, transplantation biology, immunogenetics, cell and molecular biology, pharmacology, and other relevant biosciences, with knowledge burgeoning at a rate not dreamed of by the original pioneers. Indeed, there have been few other instances in modern medicine in which so many scientific disciplines have contributed in concert toward understanding and treating such a complex clinical problem as the failure of vital organs. The field has been a dramatic example of evolution from an imagined process to an accepted form of therapy.  (+info)

Provision of allergy care for optimal outcome in the UK. (7/201)

Allergy is common and the prevalence has increased substantially in the last 2-3 decades. There has been a particular increase in severe allergic disease, including anaphylaxis, food, drug and latex rubber allergy. Provision of allergy services in the NHS is extremely poor and there is a huge unmet need. Allergy is a full speciality, but there are few consultants and few trainees. Whilst other specialists have a role in the management of allergy, it is no longer adequate to devolve most of allergy care to them. Provision of allergy care must be lead by allergy specialists so that adequate standards of care can be achieved. The lack of care leads to morbidity, mortality and substantial cost to the NHS, much of which is avoidable. There is an urgent need for the creation of more consultant posts in allergy and this requires recognition by Trust Managers, Regional Commissioners and the Department of Health.  (+info)

Identification of the enzymatic active site of tobacco caffeoyl-coenzyme A O-methyltransferase by site-directed mutagenesis. (8/201)

Animal catechol O-methyltransferases and plant caffeoyl-coenzyme A O-methyltransferases share about 20% sequence identity and display common structural features. The crystallographic structure of rat liver catechol O-methyltransferase was used as a template to construct a homology model for tobacco caffeoyl-coenzyme A O-methyltransferase. Integrating substrate specificity data, the three-dimensional model identified several amino acid residues putatively involved in substrate binding. These residues were mutated by a polymerase chain reaction method and wild-type and mutant enzymes were each expressed in Escherichia coli and purified. Substitution of Arg-220 with Thr resulted in the total loss of enzyme activity, thus indicating that Arg-220 is involved in the electrostatic interaction with the coenzyme A moiety of the substrate. Changes of Asp-58 to Ala and Gln-61 to Ser were shown to increase K(m) values for caffeoyl coenzyme A and to decrease catalytic activity. Deletions of two amino acid sequences specific for plant enzymes abolished activity. The secondary structures of the mutants, as measured by circular dichroism, were essentially unperturbed as compared with the wild type. Similar changes in circular dichroism spectra were observed after addition of caffeoyl coenzyme A to the wild-type enzyme and the substitution mutants but not in the case of deletion mutants, thus revealing the importance of these sequences in substrate-enzyme interactions.  (+info)

The diagnostic immunology laboratory relies heavily on protein measurements, especially with the explosion of clinically relevant biomarker analysis. Of particular import are the tremendous advances that have been made in the technology for protein detection, and while not all of it has gained traction in the clinical immunology laboratory, this remains an area of huge growth. However, regulatory processes have not kept up with the burgeoning research in the area of protein analysis, and new diagnostic tests for protein analytes are approved for clinical testing at a glacial pace. Nonetheless, it is critical for the clinical immunologist to understand these advances and determine how they can best be utilized in the clinical laboratory. Besides keeping pace with the rapidly changing technology, the age-old fundamental principles of analytical validation of new tests, protein based or not, are still applicable. This chapter covers the basic principles of protein testing in the clinical laboratory and

An allergist is a physician who has successfully completed both a specialized training period in allergy and immunology and a training period in either internal medicine, or a sub-specialty of internal medicine such as dermatology, pneumology, or otorhinolaryngology, and/or pediatrics. Subject to national training requirements, allergists are also partially or fully trained as clinical immunologists, because of the immune basis of the diseases that they diagnose and treat. In most countries, the approved period of specialty training in allergy and immunology will be two to three years of specific, intense training. Depending on national accreditation systems, completion of this training will be recognized by a Certificate of Specialized Training in Allergy, in Allergy and Immunology, or in Allergy and Clinical Immunology, awarded by a governing board. In some countries this will follow successful completion of a certification test, and in other countries by competencies being signed-off by a ...

This section talks about immunologic methods, testing and discusses about sample collection, processing, and handling. The section also discusses the laboratory procedures involved in clinical immunology. Sufficient detail is provided to enable the reader to understand the basic theory behind each procedure, the types of specimens required, and the possible problems and pitfalls. The processing and handling of samples are discussed to emphasize that correct handling of samples is as important as having the correct sample. The methods used in the clinical immunology laboratory have evolved over many decades. Although the initial serologic techniques were developed in the late 19th century, the major growth of this discipline has occurred in the last 30 or so years, following the development of RID, IIF, RIA, and EIA. Examples of potentially infectious material include blood and blood products, semen, vaginal fluids, CSF, pleural fluid, pericardial fluid, peritoneal fluid, amniotic fluid, and any unfixed

The rapid advance of immunologic knowledge has left many practitioners behind. Indeed, those who finished medical school only in the last few years may find that the basic information in immunology so recently acquired is already hopelessly outmoded. Fundamentals of Clinical Immunology presents a 150-page overview of basic immunology that is clear and concise, with simple instructive line drawings and tables. This is followed by chapters describing the relation between this fundamental information and clinical disease. The clinical portion of the book is not designed to be a guide to diagnosis and treatment but rather a treatise on the current ...

GPs are failing to care properly for the one in three people in the UK who have allergies because of poor training and a lack of specialist services, a Parliamentary report has found.. The House of Commons health select committee attacked the Governments failure to address the poor state of allergy services in a report published last week.. Five out of six allergy patients should be treated in primary care, the MPs said, and allergy services should be included in the quality and outcomes framework as an incentive to GPs.. But GPs were criticised for inadequate knowledge that made accurate diagnosis rare and condemned for attitudes of scepticism, ridicule and disbelief towards patients with symptoms of allergies.. A survey of 201 allergy sufferers giving evidence to the inquiry found that only 23 per cent had received a correct diagnosis of allergy when they first visited their GP and 58 per cent were never referred to any type of allergy service.. However, GP allergy experts said the only ...

It is well established that infection has a significant detrimental effect on patients with Alzheimers disease (AD), accelerating cognitive decline and, even in healthy ageing individuals, increasing amyloid-β (Aβ) accumulation in the brain. In animal models of AD infection can also cause damage, with evidence of increased neuroinflammation, amyloid pathology and deterioration of cognitive function. These changes are against a backdrop of an age- and AD-related increase in susceptibility to infection. Here we set out to determine whether FTY720, a molecule that binds sphingosine-1-phosphate (S1P) receptors and with known immunosuppressant effects mediating its therapeutic action in multiple sclerosis (MS), might modulate the impact of infection in a mouse model of AD ...

In this study, we compared the gene and protein expres sions of TIPE2 between the APP/PS1 mice and the age-matched wild type (WT) mice at different stages of development using western blot and RT-qPCR. The hippocampal expression of the TIPE2 mRNA and protein in APP/PS1 mice was higher than that of the WT mice starting from 6 months to 10 months. Howev er, the difference of the TIPE2 expression between the APP/PS1 mice and the WT mice declined in a time-dependent manner. The spatial learning and memory deficit from the 8-month-old APP/PS1 mice was observed in the Y-maze test and fear conditioning task. Interesting ...

Shown strategies and concepts are Flumazenil kinase activity assay illustrated through program to a little, wide data set of adults spanning a wide range in ages and multiple immunophenotypes that were assayed before and after immunization with inactivated influenza vaccine (IIV). Our regression modeling prescriptions identify some potentially important topics for future immunological research. 1) Immunologists may wish to distinguish differences in immune features from changes in immune features by aging. 2) A form of the bootstrap that employs linear extrapolation may prove to be an invaluable analytic tool because it allows the working immunologist to obtain accurate estimates of the stability of immune parameter estimates with a bare minimum of imposed assumptions. 3) Liberal inclusion of immune features in phenotyping panels can facilitate accurate separation of ...

The difference in survival for people with different forms of pancreatic cancer is not news. But it disturbs me that the cancers that they "rich" have get more attention, and different treatment, than the rest of us. A liver transplant for someone with metastatic cancer of any kind is such a waste of time, money and resources it should be a crime. None of the patients I have ever cared for with liver metastasis from any type of cancer would have been approved for a transplant. I hope Mr. Jobs paid for it out of his own pocket, not his insurance company! The reason so much more money "seems" to be going toward breast and colon cancer is that these are two very common cancers that affects hundreds of thousands of people each year and are curable diseases. Pancreatic cancer, even though it is tragic, is still a fairly rare disease with no real cure in sight. I am sympathetic to people with this disease, but economics do have a place in medicine!

Bad for Good is a 1981 album by American songwriter Jim Steinman. Steinman wrote all of the songs and performed on most, although Rory Dodd contributed lead vocals on some tracks. The songs were originally intended to be recorded by Meat Loaf as a follow up to Bat Out of Hell, titled Renegade Angel. However, Meat Loaf suffered vocal problems and was unable to sing. He would record several tracks from Bad for Good for his later albums. The critical reaction to the album was mixed. Many reviews commented that Steinmans singing voice was inadequate for the songs. Despite this, the album was a major commercial success, breaking the UK Top 10. In the midst of the success of Bat Out of Hell, management and the record company put pressure on Steinman to stop touring in order to write a follow-up, provisionally titled Renegade Angel. Steinman joined Meat Loaf and his band for a live performance in Toronto, Ontario, Canada in 1978 with the intention of going through the songs for the new album after the ...

The great advances in immunology in recent years make this field one of the most dynamic and rapidly growing in biological sciences. This remarkable growth is stimulated by the influx of investigators from other disciplines such as biochemistry, genetics, molecular biology, microbiology, virology and various medical disciplines. These disciplines are so well interlinked with immunology that no immunological challenge can now be properly addressed without sophisticated applications of expertise of combinations of these disciplines. As a consequence, immunology has become a vast and rich field encompassing discoveries and outlooks that range from the highly clinical to the highly molecular. Although such perspectives may appear diverse, they are, in fact, extremely interdependent. Critical ReviewsTM in Immunology (CRI) seeks to present a balanced overview of contemporary immunology and melds together different aspects of molecular immunology, immunobiology and clinical immunology.

We would expect that vaccinated individuals would not be involved (or very minimally involved) in any outbreak of an infectious disease for which they have been vaccinated. Yet, when outbreaks are analyzed, it becomes apparent that most often this is not the case. Vaccinated individuals are indeed very frequently involved and constitute a high proportion of disease cases.. I think this is happening because vaccination does not engage the genuine mechanism of immunity. Vaccination typically engages the immune response-that is, everything that immunologists would theoretically "want" to see being engaged in the immune system. But apparently this is not enough to confer robust protection that matches natural immunity. Our knowledge of the immune system is far from being complete.. What kind of protection can we expect from vaccines, if not life-long immunity? For live attenuated viral vaccines against communicable diseases, we can expect a very short-term protection (3-5 years). This estimate is ...

This afternoon has been a busy, whirlwind kind of afternoon. It started with a trip to an allergist to finally be tested so I can try to figure out these hives and allergies once and for all. I found out Im allergic to three things and could be allergic to more, including some foods. So, for the next six weeks the allergist wants me to hit it hard and start on their sublingual drops (thats right no injections) and come back to see them after the six weeks to evaluate everything and move on from there. One thing hat surprised me about these drops though. The doctor said many of her patients that suffer from asthma and allergies notice a huge difference and their asthma is well controlled with these drops. She said these drops are the long term solution for both and as things progress they will start taking me off some of the other medications Im on for both my allergies and my asthma, but we will do it all gradually. She also made sure I knew that if I needed to talk to her or something comes ...

Millions of Floridians will celebrate the Fourth of July holiday outdoors with family, fireworks, barbecues and some irksome, uninvited guests: stinging, flying insects.. Allergists in Florida and across the nation are particularly concerned about those party crashers this year because of a shortage of venom extract used to protect people who are allergic to the stings of honeybees, wasps, yellowjackets and yellow and bald-faced hornets. The extract is used in immunotherapy shots to help build up tolerance to the stings for those prone to allergic reactions, which can be life-threatening in severe cases.. University of Florida Health allergists said the shortage of the extract is expected to continue through the summer - peak sting season - as production ramps up to meet the shortfall.. Manufacturing problems with one of the two companies that produce the extract has led to up to a 35 percent drop in supply, according to a recent CNN report.. Juan C.

In the late 1960s and early 1970s, a shift occurred in the focus of immunological research from Ab-dominated studies to ones involving cellular components of immunity such as T cells, B cells, and APCs. The Ig nature of the B cell Ag receptor greatly facilitated the elucidation of how B cells recognized Ags. For T cells, significant progress was made with their identification, the establishment of the critical role of the thymus in their development, and their essential functional activities; however, how T cells recognized Ag was not fully understood until the mid-1980s. This months Pillars of Immunology article by Ziegler and Unanue made a seminal contribution to the understanding of T cell recognition of Ag by defining the macrophage Ag processing step required for the generation of the ligand recognized by the TCR (1).. Our current view of how T cells recognize Ag emerged from a series of findings that distinguished this recognition from that of B cells; many of these findings involved the ...

What kind of doctor is an allergist?. An Allergist/Clinical Immunologist is a physician with special training in the diagnosis and treatment of allergic and immunologic diseases. Generally, allergists are also trained in pediatrics or internal medicine so they have the capability of a primary care physician. The Allergist will conduct a personalized study of the patient. This may include a thorough history of the illness, family history, evaluation of the home and work (school) environment, allergy testing, and possibly other laboratory tests. This is a lengthy, individualized process. Allergen: any substance that causes an immune response leading to allergic symptoms. Possible common allergens include pollen and dust mites.

For residents, immunology and renal pathology rotations are combined. In immunology the residents learn how to work up a patient with an autoimmune or a paraproteinemic disorder and how these systemic orders adversely affect various target organs, for instance, the kidney. Very often the electrophoresis gels and ANCA and ANA slides are discussed with Medical Technitians for educational purposes before the reports are finalized. The residents on rotation review various tutorials in the immunology laboratory. In addition, the residents receive four to six didactic lectures on Immunology/Renal Pathology during the two to three weeks of rotation. All the native renal biopsies are reviewed with medical students, nephrology residents and fellows and the attending staff. ...

IgG antibody accounts for the vast majority of all antibody mediated protection even though it is the slowest to be produced after the initial insult. Its primary means of protection is to identify the pathogen by attaching to it and marking it for destruction by other immune cells. It can also burst cells by fixing complement. Complement is a group of proteins that build on one another after the initial component has been "fixed", much like the first domino must be tipped over to topple the whole row. Once the "row" has been completed, the complement has the ability to pierce the cell wall of the antigen. Typically only gram negative bacteria can be pierced (lysed) by a particular chain of complement known as the membrane attack (MAC). Gram positives can fall prey to the complement cascade but through the identification route ...

Since joining the Amherst College faculty in 1982 as the Cross Professor, and then after a stint as Distinguished University Professor at UMass, re-joining our faculty a decade later as the Simpson Lecturer, Richard Goldsby has been a mainstay of the Colleges Biology Department.. He is the author of many important papers on basic mechanisms of mammalian immunology. Amherst students were often drawn to Dick because of the exciting and medically relevant immunological research in his continuously funded laboratory. But he has also been a legendary classroom teacher, serving as nurturing mentor and demanding role model to a diverse group of Amherst students ranging from humanities majors tutored in Cancer and Aids to dozens of Amherst thesis students and a substantial number of graduate students on their way to successful careers as physicians or research scientists. Dick was our "silver-throated orator," who could extemporize in whole paragraphs on subjects ranging well beyond immunology, yet ...
The induction of cytotoxic CD8+ T cell responses requires the presentation of antigenic peptides by MHC class I molecules (MHC I). MHC I usually present peptides derived from endogenous proteins. However, some subtypes of dendritic cells (DCs) have developed the ability to efficiently present peptides derived from exogenous antigens on MHC I via a process called cross-presentation. Cross-presentation is intimately linked to the induction of anti-viral, -bacterial and -tumor cytotoxic T cell (CTL) responses, as well as a wide variety of CTL-mediated diseases and transplant rejections. The molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying cross-presentation have been studied intensively since its original description, yet understanding of this process is incomplete and on the forefront of immunological research. Numerous pathways and models, some of them conflicting, have been described so far. Here, we review the various pathways reported as involved in cross-presentation, highlighting the complexity of this
Advanced Immunology is designed to provide the basic scientist with an enhanced understanding of immunological concepts and techniques applicable to research in immunology and related fields. Specifically, the goal is to familiarize students with the current immunological concepts, paradigms, and techniques that are applicable not only to research in immunology but are also increasingly necessary for an enhanced understanding of all biological disciplines. The course will be offered in the spring semester and taught by a number of expert lecturers. Advanced Immunology will be taught in lecture format (2 hr/lecture; 2 lectures/week), which will include classical didactic experiences, instructor-guided discussions of relevant scientific literature, and student-led discussions of cutting-edge topics in immunology. Additionally, students will give oral presentations, approximately 30 minutes in length, on selected topics in Immunology. A list of topics appropriate for presentations will be provided ...
Background. Dr Christian Gray joined Plymouth School of Medicine and Dentistry in 2013 where he is the discipline lead for Immunology, Academic lead for Intercalated Degree Programme and Disability Champion. Prior to this he was employed as aPostdoc in a variety of areas of immunological research including therapies for rheumatoid arthritis, pneumococcal vaccines, mastitis resistance in dairycattle, and vaccines for R. microplus.

Nath: Ive put together a panel of really outstanding immunologists to guide me. Although I do consider myself to be a neuroimmunologist, every immunologist is not the same. There are people who specialize in B-cells, and T-cells, and NK cells, and so on and so forth. So what I did was I called on Dr. Neal Young, who is an expert immunologist at NIH and Ronald Germain, who is a National Academy of Science member, and so we sat and discussed various kinds of things. I think what were going to do is were going to collect a lot of lymphocytes both from blood and from CSF [cerebrospinal fluid]. Initially, well be storing them and what well be doing is looking at cell-free fluid in the CSF and the serum for not just a small number of cytokines, actually 1,500 lysates, analytes. But we want to be very comprehensive and I have developed a proteomics assay in my own lab which will look at about at least 2,500 proteins. So when we look at the composite, I think that it will be very clear to us what ...
Annual meeting of the Federation of Clinical Immunology Societies opens June 5 BOSTON, June 2 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Over a thousand scientists and clinicians
Mildred Cohn was born in New York City. She attended Hunter College in Manhattan. After graduating in 1931 she enrolled at Columbia University and, with Harold Urey, studied ways of separating different isotopes of carbon. She received her Ph.D. in physical chemistry in 1937 and obtained a postdoctoral position at George Washington University with Vincent du Vigneaud. In du Vigneauds laboratory, Cohn pioneered the effort to use isotopic tracers to follow the metabolism of sulfur-containing compounds. In 1946, Cohn went to Washington University to work with Carl and Gerty Cori. There, she used an isotope of oxygen to study the enzyme-catalyzed reactions of organic phosphates and employed nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) toward the same goal.. Cohn was promoted to associate professor in biochemistry in 1958 but left Washington University 2 years later to join the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine. She became a full professor in 1961 and retired as Benjamin Rush Professor Emerita of ...
In addition to modern antigen-specific antibody- and vaccine-based immunologic cancer therapies, "nonspecific" immunotherapies with bacterial products have also shown antitumor effects (24-26). Over the past 2 decades, immunologic research has broadened our understanding of how these bacterial products may stimulate the immune system, and how endogenous mediators, induced by nonspecific immune stimulation influence the immune defense (22, 27, 28). In previous studies with MBV, also known as Coleys toxins, fever induction has been considered to be the key indicative aspect of successful treatment (29). However, there has been no systematic investigation of the mechanism by which MBV-induced fever would contribute to mediate tumor regression.. Therefore, a primary objective of our study was to identify the dose of standardized MBV that increased the body temperature from 38°C to 39.5°C. Eleven of 12 patients developed fever of ≥38°C at a given MBV dose level. The pyrogenic dose level varied ...

Being on the other side.. As a pediatric allergist I hear the stories and share advice on how to handle situations. We need to keep the child out of harms way and we also want them to have the social interactions that they need and thrive on- an important part of a childs development. A few weeks ago Anna (my granddaughter) was invited to a bounce house birthday party. That in and of itself was a new experience for me. Her mom and dad were going out of town to a wedding so Anna and her older brother Calvin were on our watch for a good part of the weekend. Tree nut anaphylactic Calvin was invited to the party- and our thanks to the family for doing that. A thanks for many reasons.. Upon arrival, we mentioned the tree nut allergy to the family. They were very responsive and checked the labels for us and assured us that the cake had nothing to do with tree nuts (my summary term for contains, may contain, or made on the same machinery).. So let the bouncing begin. A very active party, quite ...

The Nobel Prize was established in 1901 using a bequest from Alfred Nobel and is probably the most highly regarded international award. Nobel prizes are currently awarded annually in several categories, including Physiology or Medicine, and winners are termed Nobel Laureates.1 The Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine is awarded for "discovery of major importance in life science or medicine. Discoveries that have changed the scientific paradigm and are of great benefit for mankind are awarded the prize, whereas life time achievements or scientific leadership cannot be considered for the Nobel Prize".1 While many medical researchers have been recognised with the Nobel prize for Physiology or Medicine, many famous medical researchers over the years did not win a Nobel Prize.
