Anaphylaxis: An acute hypersensitivity reaction due to exposure to a previously encountered ANTIGEN. The reaction may include rapidly progressing URTICARIA, respiratory distress, vascular collapse, systemic SHOCK, and death.Passive Cutaneous Anaphylaxis: An evanescent cutaneous reaction occurring when antibody is injected into a local area on the skin and antigen is subsequently injected intravenously along with a dye. The dye makes the rapidly occurring capillary dilatation and increased vascular permeability readily visible by leakage into the reaction site. PCA is a sensitive reaction for detecting very small quantities of antibodies and is also a method for studying the mechanisms of immediate hypersensitivity.Food Hypersensitivity: Gastrointestinal disturbances, skin eruptions, or shock due to allergic reactions to allergens in food.Immunoglobulin E: An immunoglobulin associated with MAST CELLS. Overexpression has been associated with allergic hypersensitivity (HYPERSENSITIVITY, IMMEDIATE).Drug Hypersensitivity: Immunologically mediated adverse reactions to medicinal substances used legally or illegally.Insect Bites and Stings: Bites and stings inflicted by insects.SRS-A: A group of LEUKOTRIENES; (LTC4; LTD4; and LTE4) that is the major mediator of BRONCHOCONSTRICTION; HYPERSENSITIVITY; and other allergic reactions. Earlier studies described a "slow-reacting substance of ANAPHYLAXIS" released from lung by cobra venom or after anaphylactic shock. The relationship between SRS-A leukotrienes was established by UV which showed the presence of the conjugated triene. (From Merck Index, 11th ed)Wheat Hypersensitivity: Allergic reaction to wheat that is triggered by the immune system.Peanut Hypersensitivity: Allergic reaction to peanuts that is triggered by the immune system.Mast Cells: Granulated cells that are found in almost all tissues, most abundantly in the skin and the gastrointestinal tract. Like the BASOPHILS, mast cells contain large amounts of HISTAMINE and HEPARIN. Unlike basophils, mast cells normally remain in the tissues and do not circulate in the blood. Mast cells, derived from the bone marrow stem cells, are regulated by the STEM CELL FACTOR.Histamine Release: The secretion of histamine from mast cell and basophil granules by exocytosis. This can be initiated by a number of factors, all of which involve binding of IgE, cross-linked by antigen, to the mast cell or basophil's Fc receptors. Once released, histamine binds to a number of different target cell receptors and exerts a wide variety of effects.Skin Tests: Epicutaneous or intradermal application of a sensitizer for demonstration of either delayed or immediate hypersensitivity. Used in diagnosis of hypersensitivity or as a test for cellular immunity.Urticaria: A vascular reaction of the skin characterized by erythema and wheal formation due to localized increase of vascular permeability. The causative mechanism may be allergy, infection, or stress.Histamine: An amine derived by enzymatic decarboxylation of HISTIDINE. It is a powerful stimulant of gastric secretion, a constrictor of bronchial smooth muscle, a vasodilator, and also a centrally acting neurotransmitter.Allergens: Antigen-type substances that produce immediate hypersensitivity (HYPERSENSITIVITY, IMMEDIATE).Basophils: Granular leukocytes characterized by a relatively pale-staining, lobate nucleus and cytoplasm containing coarse dark-staining granules of variable size and stainable by basic dyes.Bronchial Spasm: Spasmodic contraction of the smooth muscle of the bronchi.Anti-Allergic Agents: Agents that are used to treat allergic reactions. Most of these drugs act by preventing the release of inflammatory mediators or inhibiting the actions of released mediators on their target cells. (From AMA Drug Evaluations Annual, 1994, p475)Cell Degranulation: The process of losing secretory granules (SECRETORY VESICLES). This occurs, for example, in mast cells, basophils, neutrophils, eosinophils, and platelets when secretory products are released from the granules by EXOCYTOSIS.Ant Venoms: Venoms from the superfamily Formicoidea, Ants. They may contain protein factors and toxins, histamine, enzymes, and alkaloids and are often allergenic or immunogenic.Epinephrine: The active sympathomimetic hormone from the ADRENAL MEDULLA. It stimulates both the alpha- and beta- adrenergic systems, causes systemic VASOCONSTRICTION and gastrointestinal relaxation, stimulates the HEART, and dilates BRONCHI and cerebral vessels. It is used in ASTHMA and CARDIAC FAILURE and to delay absorption of local ANESTHETICS.Desensitization, Immunologic: Immunosuppression by the administration of increasing doses of antigen. Though the exact mechanism is not clear, the therapy results in an increase in serum levels of allergen-specific IMMUNOGLOBULIN G, suppression of specific IgE, and an increase in suppressor T-cell activity.Histamine H1 Antagonists: Drugs that selectively bind to but do not activate histamine H1 receptors, thereby blocking the actions of endogenous histamine. Included here are the classical antihistaminics that antagonize or prevent the action of histamine mainly in immediate hypersensitivity. They act in the bronchi, capillaries, and some other smooth muscles, and are used to prevent or allay motion sickness, seasonal rhinitis, and allergic dermatitis and to induce somnolence. The effects of blocking central nervous system H1 receptors are not as well understood.Cromolyn Sodium: A chromone complex that acts by inhibiting the release of chemical mediators from sensitized mast cells. It is used in the prophylactic treatment of both allergic and exercise-induced asthma, but does not affect an established asthmatic attack.Hypersensitivity: Altered reactivity to an antigen, which can result in pathologic reactions upon subsequent exposure to that particular antigen.Glafenine: An anthranilic acid derivative with analgesic properties used for the relief of all types of pain.Latex Hypersensitivity: Allergic reaction to products containing processed natural rubber latex such as rubber gloves, condoms, catheters, dental dams, balloons, and sporting equipment. Both T-cell mediated (HYPERSENSITIVITY, DELAYED) and IgE antibody-mediated (HYPERSENSITIVITY, IMMEDIATE) allergic responses are possible. Delayed hypersensitivity results from exposure to antioxidants present in the rubber; immediate hypersensitivity results from exposure to a latex protein.Autacoids: A chemically diverse group of substances produced by various tissues in the body that cause slow contraction of smooth muscle; they have other intense but varied pharmacologic activities.Histamine Antagonists: Drugs that bind to but do not activate histamine receptors, thereby blocking the actions of histamine or histamine agonists. Classical antihistaminics block the histamine H1 receptors only.Hypersensitivity, Immediate: Hypersensitivity reactions which occur within minutes of exposure to challenging antigen due to the release of histamine which follows the antigen-antibody reaction and causes smooth muscle contraction and increased vascular permeability.Arachis hypogaea: A plant species of the family FABACEAE that yields edible seeds, the familiar peanuts, which contain protein, oil and lectins.Ovalbumin: An albumin obtained from the white of eggs. It is a member of the serpin superfamily.Lens Plant: A plant genus of the FABACEAE family known for the seeds used as food.Angioedema: Swelling involving the deep DERMIS, subcutaneous, or submucosal tissues, representing localized EDEMA. Angioedema often occurs in the face, lips, tongue, and larynx.Bee Venoms: Venoms obtained from Apis mellifera (honey bee) and related species. They contain various enzymes, polypeptide toxins, and other substances, some of which are allergenic or immunogenic or both. These venoms were formerly used in rheumatism to stimulate the pituitary-adrenal system.Adrenergic Agonists: Drugs that bind to and activate adrenergic receptors.Neuromuscular Blocking Agents: Drugs that interrupt transmission of nerve impulses at the skeletal neuromuscular junction. They can be of two types, competitive, stabilizing blockers (NEUROMUSCULAR NONDEPOLARIZING AGENTS) or noncompetitive, depolarizing agents (NEUROMUSCULAR DEPOLARIZING AGENTS). Both prevent acetylcholine from triggering the muscle contraction and they are used as anesthesia adjuvants, as relaxants during electroshock, in convulsive states, etc.Antigens, Plant: Substances found in PLANTS that have antigenic activity.Intradermal Tests: Skin tests in which the sensitizer is injected.Ascaris: A genus of nematodes of the superfamily ASCARIDOIDEA whose species usually inhabit the intestine.Guinea Pigs: A common name used for the genus Cavia. The most common species is Cavia porcellus which is the domesticated guinea pig used for pets and biomedical research.Arthropod Venoms: Venoms from animals of the phylum Arthropoda. Those most investigated are from scorpions and spiders of the class Arachnidae and from ant, bee, and wasp families of the Insecta order Hymenoptera. The venoms contain protein toxins, enzymes, and other bioactive substances and may be lethal to man.Tryptases: A family of neutral serine proteases with TRYPSIN-like activity. Tryptases are primarily found in the SECRETORY GRANULES of MAST CELLS and are released during mast cell degranulation.Nut Hypersensitivity: Allergic reaction to tree nuts that is triggered by the immune system.Receptors, IgE: Specific molecular sites on the surface of B- and T-lymphocytes which combine with IgEs. Two subclasses exist: low affinity receptors (Fc epsilon RII) and high affinity receptors (Fc epsilon RI).Reagins: Antibodies, especially IGE, that bind to tissue of the same species so that ANTIGENS induce release of HISTAMINE and other vasoactive agents. HYPERSENSITIVITY is the clinical manifestation.Diethylcarbamazine: An anthelmintic used primarily as the citrate in the treatment of filariasis, particularly infestations with Wucheria bancrofti or Loa loa.Platelet Activating Factor: A phospholipid derivative formed by PLATELETS; BASOPHILS; NEUTROPHILS; MONOCYTES; and MACROPHAGES. It is a potent platelet aggregating agent and inducer of systemic anaphylactic symptoms, including HYPOTENSION; THROMBOCYTOPENIA; NEUTROPENIA; and BRONCHOCONSTRICTION.Hymenoptera: An extensive order of highly specialized insects including bees, wasps, and ants.p-Methoxy-N-methylphenethylamine: A potent mast cell degranulator. It is involved in histamine release.Antigens: Substances that are recognized by the immune system and induce an immune reaction.Fagopyrum: A plant genus of the family POLYGONACEAE that is used as an EDIBLE GRAIN. Although the seeds are used as cereal, the plant is not one of the cereal grasses (POACEAE).Methysergide: An ergot derivative that is a congener of LYSERGIC ACID DIETHYLAMIDE. It antagonizes the effects of serotonin in blood vessels and gastrointestinal smooth muscle, but has few of the properties of other ergot alkaloids. Methysergide is used prophylactically in migraine and other vascular headaches and to antagonize serotonin in the carcinoid syndrome.Basophil Degranulation Test: An in vitro test used in the diagnosis of allergies including drug hypersensitivity. The allergen is added to the patient's white blood cells and the subsequent histamine release is measured.

Structural determinants of the eosinophil: chemotactic activity of the acidic tetrapeptides of eosinophil chemotactic factor of anaphylaxis. (1/1066)

The acidic tetrapeptides of ECF-A, Ala/Val-Gly-Ser-Glu, exhibit peak in vitro chemotactic activity for human eosinophils at concentrations of 3 X 10(-8) M to 10(-6) M, and rapidly deactivate eosinophils to homologous and other stimuli at concentrations as low as 10(-10) M. The analogue Leu-Gly-Ser-Glu reaches peak activity at 10(-8)M-10(-7)M, while Phe-Gly-Ser-Glu requires 10(-4)M to elicit a peak response. Although inversion of the order of glycine and serine does not alter the eosinophil chemotactic activity of the tetrapeptides, deletion of glycine increases by 10-fold the concentration required for peak chemotactic activity, indicating the critical nature of the spacing between NH2- and COOH-terminal residues. The substituent COOH-terminal tripeptide, which is only marginally chemotactic, irreversibly suppresses eosinophil chemotactic responsiveness at a concentration 10,000-fold higher than concentrations necessary for deactivation by the intact tetrapeptide. The high concentration of tripeptide required for this cell directed effect, which is assumed to be analogous to deactivation, is attributed to the absence of the NH2-terminal residue which would facilitate effective interaction with the eosinophil. A substituent NH2-terminal tripeptide and amides of the NH2-terminal amino acids, which are devoid of chemotactic and deactivating activities, reversibly inhibit the tetrapeptide stimulus in a dose-response fashion. The additional finding that the NH2-terminal tripeptide protects the eosinophil from deactivation by the intact tetrapeptide confirms that the competitive interaction is stimulus specific.  (+info)

The cat lung strip as an in vitro preparation of peripheral airways: a comparison of beta-adrenoceptor agonists, autacoids and anaphylactic challenge on the lung strip and trachea. (2/1066)

1 A new in vitro preparation, the isolated lung strip of the cat, is described for investigating the direct effect of drugs on the smooth muscle of the peripheral airways of the lung. The preparation comprises a thin strip of lung parenchyma which can be mounted in a conventional organ bath for isometric tension recording. Its pharmacological responses have been characterized and compared with the isolated tracheal preparation of the cat. 2 The lung strip exhibited an intrinsic tone which was relaxed by catecholamines, aminophylline and flufenamate. It was contracted strongly by histamine, prostaglandin F2alpha, acetylcholine, compound 48/80, potassium depolarizing solution and alternating current field stimulation. In contrast, the cat trachea was unresponsive to histamine and prostaglandin F2alpha and did not exhibit an intrinsic tone. 3 (-)-Isoprenaline and (-)-adrenaline were much more potent in relaxing the lung strip than the trachea. The potency order of relaxation responses to isoprenaline, adrenaline and (+/-)-noradrenaline in the lung strip was isoprenaline greater than adrenaline greater than noradrenaline but in the trachea was isoprenaline greater than noradrenaline greater than or equal to adrenaline. 4 beta2-Adrenoceptor selective agonists salbutamol and terbutaline were more potent in the lung strip than the trachea, suggesting beta2-adrenoceptors predominated in the lung strip. Propranolol was equipotent in inhibiting isoprenaline relexations of the lung strip and trachea, whereas practolol was much less effective in inhibiting lung strip than trachea, further supporting a predominance of beta2-adrenoceptors in lung strip and beta1-adrenoceptors in trachea. 5 Strong Schultz-Dale type contractions were elicited in both lung strips and trachea by Ascaris lumbricoides antigen in actively sensitized cats. The initial phase of the contractile response of the lung strip following challenge was shown to be due to histamine release and was absent in the trachea. The delayed phase of the contraction which took several minutes to develop in both the mepyramine-treated lung strip and trachea was not due to prostaglandins E1, F2alpha or bradykinin, the probable mediator being slow reacting substance of anaphylaxis (SRS-A). 6 It is concluded that the isolated lung strip of the cat is useful as an in vitro model for investigating the effect of drugs on the smooth muscle of the peripheral airways of the lungs.  (+info)

Anaphylactic bronchoconstriction in BP2 mice: interactions between serotonin and acetylcholine. (3/1066)

1. Immunized BP2 mice developed an acute bronchoconstriction in vivo and airway muscle contraction in vitro in response to ovalbumin (OA) and these contractions were dose dependent. 2. Methysergide or atropine inhibited OA-induced bronchoconstriction in vivo and airway muscle contraction in vitro. 3. Neostigmine potentiated the OA-induced bronchoconstriction in vivo and airway muscle contraction in vitro of BP2 mice. This potentiation was markedly reduced by the administration of methysergide or atropine and when the two antagonists were administered together, the responses were completely inhibited. 4. Neostigmine also potentiated the serotonin (5-HT)- and acetylcholine (ACh)-induced bronchoconstriction and this potentiation was significantly reversed by atropine. 5. These results indicate that OA provokes a bronchoconstriction in immunized BP2 mice by stimulating the release of 5-HT, which in turn acts via the cholinergic mediator, ACh.  (+info)

Mediators of anaphylaxis but not activated neutrophils augment cholinergic responses of equine small airways. (4/1066)

Neutrophilic inflammation in small airways (SA) and bronchospasm mediated via muscarinic receptors are features of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease in horses (COPD). Histamine, serotonin, and leukotrienes (LTs) are reported to be involved in the exacerbation of COPD, and currently, histamine has been shown to increase tension response to electrical field simulation (EFS) in equine SA. We tested the effects of these mediators and the effects of activated neutrophils on the cholinergic responses in SA. Histamine, serotonin, and LTD4 had a synergistic effect on EFS responses and only an additive effect on the tension response to exogenous ACh or methacholine. Atropine and TTX entirely eliminated the EFS-induced tension response in the presence of all three inflammatory mediators, indicating that augmentation of the EFS response applies only to the endogenous cholinergic response. Neutrophils isolated from control and COPD-affected horses were activated by zymosan, producing 18.1 +/- 2.3 and 25.0 +/- 2.3 nmol superoxide. 10(6) cells-1. 30 min-1, respectively. However, in contrast to the profound effect of mediators, incubation of SA for over 1 h in a suspension of up to 30 x 10(6) zymosan-treated neutrophils/ml did not significantly affect EFS responses of SA isolated from either control or COPD-affected horses. We conclude that in equine SA 1) the endogenous cholinergic responses are subject to strong facilitation by inflammatory mediators; 2) activated neutrophils do not affect cholinergic responses in SA; and 3) in acute bouts of equine COPD, histamine, LTD4, and serotonin (mediators primarily associated with type I allergic reaction) rather than mediators derived from neutrophils most likely contribute to increased cholinergic airway tone.  (+info)

Effect of bolus epinephrine on systemic hemodynamics in canine anaphylactic shock. (5/1066)

OBJECTIVE: Epinephrine (Epi) is considered to be the drug of choice for anaphylactic shock (AS). However, the benefit of this drug on improving systemic hemodynamics in AS has never been shown. We used a canine ragweed model of AS to determine if an intravenous bolus of Epi hastened the recovery of hemodynamics and modified mediator release (Med) compared with no treatment (NT). METHODS: In one protocol (n = 8), the effects on hemodynamics of two intravenous doses of Epi (0.01 and 0.025 mg/kg) were examined for 3 h postshock in respective studies approximately three weeks apart under pentobarbital anesthesia in the same animal. In five other dogs, left ventricular (LV) mechanics were additionally determined by sonomicrometric techniques to determine changes in contractility as defined by the preload recruitable stroke-work (SW) relationship. RESULTS: Compared with NT values, Epi treatments produced only transient increases in mean arterial pressure (MAP) and cardiac output (CO) post-challenge. By 20 min postshock, CO in the Epi studies were generally lower (p < 0.05) and BP was not different from NT values. With Epi treatment, SW was reduced for a given LV end-diastolic volume compared with the control study. Epi treatments also caused relatively higher plasma thromboxane B2 concentrations postshock. CONCLUSION: Our findings indicate that, when given immediately postshock, bolus-Epi did not hasten recovery and caused impairment in LV mechanics in canine AS.  (+info)

Strain-dependent induction of allergic sensitization caused by peanut allergen DNA immunization in mice. (6/1066)

To investigate the potential application of allergen gene immunization in the modulation of food allergy, C3H/HeSn (C3H) mice received i.m. injections of pAra h2 plasmid DNA encoding one of the major peanut allergens, Ara h2. Three weeks following pDNA immunization, serum Ara h2-specific IgG2a, IgG1, but not IgE, were increased significantly in a dose-dependent manner. IgG1 was 30-fold higher in multiply compared with singly immunized mice. Ara h2 or peanut protein injection of immunized mice induced anaphylactic reactions, which were more severe in multiply immunized mice. Heat-inactivated immune serum induced passive cutaneous anaphylaxis, suggesting that anaphylaxis in C3H mice was mediated by IgG1. IgG1 responses were also induced by intradermal injection of pAra h2, and by i.m. injection of pOMC, the plasmid DNA encoding the major egg allergen protein, ovomucoid. To elucidate whether the pDNA immunization-induced anaphylaxis was a strain-dependent phenomenon, AKR/J and BALB/c mice also received multiple i.m. pAra h2 immunizations. Injection of peanut protein into these strains at weeks 3 or 5 following immunization did not induce reactions. Although IgG2a was increased significantly from week 2 in AKR/J mice and from week 4 in BALB/c mice and remained elevated for at least 6 wk, no IgG1 or IgE was detected. These results indicate that the type of immune responses to pDNA immunization in mice is strain dependent. Consequently, models for studying human allergen gene immunization require careful selection of suitable strains. In addition, this suggests that similar interindividual variation is likely in humans.  (+info)

Evidence of anaphylaxy after alteplase infusion. (8/1066)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Although alteplase, a recombinant tissue plasminogen activator (tPA), is structurally identical to endogenous tPA and therefore should not induce allergy, single cases of acute hypersensitivity reactions have been reported. Until now, specific antibodies against alteplase were not detected in blood samples obtained in these patients. CASE DESCRIPTION: We report an anaphylactic reaction in a 70-year-old white female who was treated with intravenous alteplase for thrombolysis of acute ischemic stroke 160 minutes after onset of a right-sided hemiparesis. Thirty minutes after infusion of alteplase had been started, the patient suffered acute severe sinus tachycardia and hypotension, followed by cyanosis and loss of consciousness. The alteplase infusion was stopped, and following antiallergic therapy, tachycardia and hypotension resolved within 1 hour. The hemiparesis remained unaltered, but additional harm resulting from the hemodynamic complication was not observed. Serum samples analyzed with a radioimmunoprecipitation assay were negative for total antibodies to alteplase, but in a subsequent ELISA, both samples were positive for IgE antibodies to alteplase. CONCLUSIONS: The detection of specific IgE antibodies reactive with alteplase in this patient could provide the first evidence of an anaphylactic-type reaction to alteplase in man. Because previous exposure to alteplase can be excluded, the results suggest that this patient had preexisting antibodies that were cross-reactive with one or more epitopes of alteplase and therefore precipitated the anaphylactic-type reaction.  (+info)

Definition of anaphylactoid reaction in the Legal Dictionary - by Free online English dictionary and encyclopedia. What is anaphylactoid reaction? Meaning of anaphylactoid reaction as a legal term. What does anaphylactoid reaction mean in law?
Published Online: September 9, 2013. Food-induced anaphylaxis is a potentially life-threatening systemic allergic reaction that often results in emergency department (ED) visits and/or hospitalization. Epinephrine is the first-line treatment for anaphylaxis and its prompt and correct administration can be lifesaving. After an ED visit/hospitalization for anaphylaxis, US national guidelines recommend several actions, including prescription of an epinephrine auto-injector (EAI) and referral to an allergist/immunologist.. In a recent study of healthcare claims in 1,370 US adults, published in The Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology: In Practice, Landsman-Blumberg et al examined patient concordance with recommended post-discharge care after an ED visit or hospitalization for food-induced anaphylaxis. While previous studies investigated physician adherence with US national guidelines, the new study evaluated if patients actually fill/refill an EAI prescription and visit a specialist ...

article{1e9e7fa6-4990-4ef4-af96-b18ff9968d5d, abstract = {,p,Anaphylaxis/anaphylactoid reactions have recently been reported after few treatments with factor IX concentrates in patients with haemophilia B at the same time as inhibitors to factor IX were demonstrated. In some of these cases nephrotic syndrome has appeared during immune tolerance induction (ITI) with high doses of factor IX concentrates. Gene deletions seem to be associated with a high risk of developing antibodies to factor IX. This report presents two brothers with deletion of 1 bp in exon f of the factor IX gene. Both showed anaphylactoid reactions and they were desensitized using slow i.v. injections of factor IX. At the time of anaphylaxis, inhibitors of factor IX in a low titre could be demonstrated. The elder brother responded well after a short time on ITI and has no spontaneous bleedings on regular prophylaxis although in a somewhat higher dose than expected. On the other hand, in spite of comparable regimens, the younger ...
Anaphylaxis is classically induced by IgE-dependent FceRI crosslinking that triggers mast cell and basophil mediator, enzyme and cytokine secretion. Anaphylaxis can also be induced in mice, however, by IgG- mediated crosslinking of macrophage and basophil FcgRIII. This alternative pathway may be responsible for some cases of human anaphylaxis, particularly those associated with protein-based drugs, including humanized mAbs. We used mouse passive anaphylaxis models to attempt to identify markers that could distinguish between IgE- and IgG-mediated anaphylaxis. Mice sensitized by i.v. injection of TNP-specific IgE or IgG mAbs were challenged i.v. 24h later with TNP-OVA; changes in cells and serum were then evaluated. Changes 2h post-challenge in both IgE- and IgG-mediated anaphylaxis included: 1) up to 90% decreases in percentages of basophils and monocytes in blood; 2) doubling of the percentage of neutrophils in blood; and 3) ~25% increases in the ability of neutrophils to generate reactive ...
Anaphylaxis is the medical term for severe allergic reaction. Anaphylaxis, if left untreated, can turn out to be fatal, hence it should be attended with utmost care and sensitivity. Unfortunately, severe anaphylaxis is so rare that more often than not people are not aware what to do if they come across someone who is under an anaphylaxis. This is the reason why we have come out with this article in which we have listed some of the most effective first aid procedures that are highly effective in an event of anaphylaxis. While administering first aid for anaphylaxis, it is important that you bear in mind that it is a potentially fatal condition and hence you should seek emergency help immediately. Emergency help means calling 911 for ambulance so that the person can be taken to the nearest medical centre. Anaphylaxis can be treated quickly by administering prescribed medicines; hence if you do not know how to do it then you have to take the person to the nearest medical unit. Often people get confused in
Our data indicate that bradykinin production is increased during cardiac anaphylaxis, a reaction characterized by the release of several coronary-vasoconstricting mediators. The following findings define the functional consequences of this increased bradykinin production: (1) HOE 140 potentiates anaphylactic coronary vasoconstriction and exacerbates arrhythmias. (2) When the half-life of bradykinin is prolonged with captopril and enalaprilat, anaphylactic coronary vasoconstriction is greatly diminished, or even reversed, and arrhythmias are alleviated. (3) HOE 140 prevents the effects of the kininase II/ACE inhibitors. Accordingly, we postulate that bradykinin functions as a mitigating factor in cardiac anaphylaxis by opposing the coronary-vasoconstricting effects of other mediators.. Given the potent coronary-vasodilating effects of bradykinin7 and the likelihood that this peptide is a mediator of immediate hypersensitivity,13 we questioned whether local bradykinin production is augmented ...
CAI urges MPs to Advance Anaphylaxis 5-Point Action Policy. Canadian Anaphylaxis Initiative urges action at Federal level. June 17, 2013 - OTTAWA - A volunteer network of families celebrate the recent historic Parliamentary vote and, at the same time, urge MPs to push for action that can improve the lives of Canadians coping with the medical condition anaphylaxis. The Canadian Anaphylaxis Initiative (CAI) would like to have the Government follow-up the House of Commons unanimous vote for greater anaphylaxis awareness with a coordinated plan of action led by Health Canada. On May 22, the House of Commons wholly supported a motion to raise awareness of anaphylaxis. Motion M-230 calls for the government to take "the appropriate measures necessary to ensure these Canadians are able to maintain a high quality of life." Cindy Paskey, a CAI founder, says, "We are all encouraged that the federal government has anaphylaxis on its radar screen. Our group has spent years with MPs Dean Allison, Rick ...
60. Is anaphylaxis the same as anaphylactic shock?. No. Anaphylaxis can result in anaphylactic shock but it often doesnt. When talking about anaphylactic shock, people are referring to circulatory shock that was caused by anaphylaxis. Circulatory shock occurs when there is not enough blood to carry oxygen to all the tissues that need it. When the tissues dont get enough oxygen, your organs stop working correctly.. Circulatory shock is usually caused by low blood pressure. Anaphylaxis commonly causes low blood pressure and that can cause shock. However, anaphylaxis does not always cause low blood pressure, and it does not always cause shock.. 61. If a tryptase level over 10.9 ng/mL is high, why is one of the criteria for systemic mastocytosis a tryptase level of 20.0 ng/mL or higher?. Tryptase level is used in two ways in assessing mast cell patients: as a marker for activation, and as a marker for how many mast cells are in the body.. There are two primary methods of using tryptase to indicate ...

Abstract: Serine elastase-like proteinase was isolated from rat bronchial secretion, activity of which was increased 2-fold in bronchial anaphylaxis. Effect of histamine, serotonin and hydrocortisone on the enzymatic activity was studied. Regulation of the enzyme activity in bronchial anaphylaxis was considered with relation to patterns of its metabolism as well as depending on efficiency of specific endogenous inhibitor of the proteinase. A procedure for histamine stimulation of alkaline proteinase was developed ...
ANAPHYLAXIS IS A LIFE-THREATENING TYPE OF ALLERGIC REACTION Can occur at any time. Risks include a history of any type of allergic reaction. Anaphylaxis is a severe, whole-body allergic reaction to a chemical that has become an allergen. INCIDENCE 1 million cases of venom anaphylaxis 0.4 million cases of nut anaphylaxis up to age 44 years worldwide. Approximately 20 anaphylaxis deaths reported each year in the UK (specific causes of anaphylaxis -prevalence and severity data available) PROGNOSIS Overall prognosis of anaphylaxis is good. Case fatality ratio of less than 1% reported in most population-based studies. Risk of death is, however, increased in those with pre-existing asthma, particularly if the asthma is poorly controlled or In asthmatics who fail to use, or delay treatment with adrenaline.
Anaphylactoid Reactions: Sudden and potentially life-threatening anaphylactoid reactions have occurred in some patients dialyzed with high-flux membranes treated concomitantly with an ACE inhibitor. In such patients, dialysis must be stopped immediately, and aggressive therapy for anaphylactoid reactions must be initiated. Symptoms have not been relieved by antihistamines in these situations. In these patients, consideration should be given to using a different type of dialysis membrane or a different class of antihypertensive agent. Anaphylactoid reactions have also been reported in patients undergoing low-density lipoprotein apheresis with dextran sulfate absorption and in patients undergoing desensitizing treatment with hymenoptera venom ...
To the Editor: Indocyanine-green is used for determination of cardiac output, liver function testing, chorioidal angiography, and capillary microscopy. We report three cases of patients with anaphylactoid reactions to indocyanine-green, which together with reports in the literature suggest a dose-dependent pseudoallergic mechanism, rather than a true immune mechanism.. A 49-year-old man received indocyanine-green, 5 mg/kg body weight for capillary microscopy. Within 10 seconds, he developed flush, dyspnea, and shock.. A 56-year-old man received indocyanine-green, 0.5 mg/kg for liver function testing. Within 1 minute, he developed acute bronchospasm, hypotension, and cardiorespiratory arrest.. A 62-year-old man received indocyanine-green, 0.5 mg/kg for liver ...
Anaphylaxis is widely understood to be an immediate life-threatening condition that can occur at all ages and frequently in subjects with a history of atopy. Data about the prevalence of the various causes of anaphylaxis is scarce, especially in children. In adults some reasonable estimates report that hymenoptera sting anaphylaxis occurs in 0.4% of the population6 and penicillin-induced anaphylaxis occurs every 10-50 cases/100 000 injections.7 In a review of patients admitted to a university hospital during 1 year there were 9 cases of anaphylaxis out of 20 000 admissions.8 In a retrospective study carried out among adult subjects, Sorensen et al9 have reported an incidence of 3.4 cases/100 000 inhabitants of anaphylactic shock per year that occurred in a hospital catchment area over a 13-year period. The precipitating agents were penicillin in 7 cases, aspirin in 3 cases, food in 2 cases, and bee or wasp stings in 8 cases. In one study of 172 anaphylactic reactions, foods, especially nuts, ...
Members of Parliament pass Anaphylaxis Awareness Motion. Canadian Anaphylaxis Initiative pleased with "step in right direction". May 23, 2013 - OTTAWA - MPs votes in the House of Commons last night included the passing of Motion 230, a motion to raise awareness of anaphylaxis, a life-threatening medical condition brought on by severe allergies. This is welcomed news for family members of the Canadian Anaphylaxis Initiative (CAI), a volunteer network of concerned families who have been working with MPs to raise awareness of severe allergies in Ottawa.. The anaphylaxis motion passed with unanimous, all-Party support. Niagara West-Glanbrook MP Dean Allison initiated the debate in the House of Commons, moving: That in the opinion of the House, anaphylaxis is a serious concern for an increasing number of Canadians and the government should take the appropriate measures necessary to ensure these Canadians are able to maintain a high quality of life.. "By bringing more attention and awareness to the ...

Therefore, it is important to establish a novel method to evaluate drugs for anaphylactoid reactions. In this study, we developed a sensitive and rapid method to detect histamine release from LAD2 cells using liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) and constructed a relative release index based on various release curve parameters, including allergen release time and sudden change rate, to evaluate the potential and ...
Anaphylaxis is a serious allergic reaction that has a rapid onset and can cause death.1,2 In the past, the term anaphylactic reaction referred to symptoms triggered by immunoglobulin (Ig) E-dependent activation of immune effector cells, whereas anaphylactoid reactions were clinically similar to anaphylactic reactions but were not mediated by antigen-specific IgE. Although some experts have advocated that the term anaphylactoid be eliminated, other influential clinical practice guidelines consensus documents continue to use the term anaphylactoid - thus, anaphylactic and anaphylactoid reactions will be discussed as a single entity in this chapter. 2 ...
Anaphylaxis is a medical emergency and among the most severe diseases dealt with by allergists. In a nearly global manner and for reasons not fully understood, the incidence of anaphylaxis has increased [3-5], as has its severity [6-8]. This explains the growing interest in epidemiological surveys to map the problem in several populations.. According to estimates, one out of 200 emergency care cases are caused by hypersensitivity reactions, ranging from mild urticaria to true anaphylactic reactions [16]. Epidemiological studies claim an estimated 50-2000 episodes of anaphylaxis per 100,000 persons, and, thus, approximately 2% of the population has already experienced at least one episode of anaphylaxis during their life [17].. The prevalence of anaphylaxis can be studied using data from different sources, such as emergency services, public and private medical facilities, hospital admissions, and consultations in allergist offices. Thus, the different methodologies must be considered when ...
Anaphylaxis is a severe, life-threatening, systemic allergic reaction that is almost always unanticipated and may lead to death by airway obstruction or vascular collapse. Anaphylaxis occurs as the result of an allergen response, usually immunoglobulin E-mediated, which leads to mast cell and basophil activation and a combination of dermatologic, respiratory, cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, and neurologic symptoms. Dermatologic and respiratory symptoms are most common, occurring in 90 and 70 percent of episodes, respectively. The three most common triggers are food, insect stings, and medications. The diagnosis of anaphylaxis is typically made when symptoms occur within one hour of exposure to a specific antigen. Confirmatory testing using serum histamine and tryptase levels is difficult, because blood samples must be drawn with strict time considerations. Allergen skin testing and in vitro assay for serum immunoglobulin E of specific allergens do not reliably predict who will develop anaphylaxis.
An erroneous belief exists that epinephrine "fixes" anaphylaxis, thereby obviating the need for further evaluation and treatment in the emergency department. To undermine this belief, one must consider the pathogenesis of anaphylaxis [9].. Anaphylaxis results from the cascade-like activation of immune cells in the body after exposure to a particular allergen. The most common triggers for fatal reactions are foods, drugs, and stings [1, 10]. Children and adolescents carry a higher risk of fatal anaphylaxis due to food reactions, while older individuals are more likely to die from venom or drug reactions [8, 10, 11]. The triggering allergen starts the reaction by stimulating a response in a particular type of antibody (IgE), which bind both the allergen and sites on the surface of mast cells and basophils (immune cells), causing their activation. The activated immune cells quickly release a variety of potent chemicals into the body, including histamine and tryptase. As the reaction progresses, the ...
The diagnosis of anaphylaxis is based primarily on the clinical history. In some circumstances, inability to confirm the clinical diagnosis such as present with unusual manifestation, or when skin signs are absent likely contributes to underrecognition and undertreatment of the disease.. Currently, products of mast cell activation (histamine and total tryptase) can be measure in clinical laboratories as markers of acute anaphylaxis events, however these tests have clinically relevant limitations.. Therefore, development of laboratory tests with improved sensitivity and specificity that will support the clinical diagnosis of anaphylaxis are needed.. In addition, shrimp is the major cause of seafood anaphylaxis among Thai children. ...
To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case demonstrating FDEIA due to chickpea in an adolescent patient, and only the second case overall reporting FDEIA due to chickpea. The first case was identified in a 41-year-old woman after dancing [11]. Legumes are not a common food associated with FDEIA, and there are minimal reports in the literature. Of interest, Orhan and Karakas discuss a 17-year-old with FDEIA to lentils [9]. Adachi et al. describe the first known case of FDEIA induced by soybean products in a 16-year-old girl who ate tofu [8]. So far, FDEIA is more common in adolescents and adults, but should not be overlooked when assessing younger patients [6].. This case demonstrates the challenge in identifying specific causative food allergens when foods are eaten in combination and when a potential allergen is contained in processed food. Rice crackers and hummus were the suspected foods and therefore several potential allergens were investigated based on their ingredients: wheat, ...
Immunoglobulin E (IgE) production is tightly regulated at the cellular and genetic levels and is believed to be central to allergy development. At least two cellular pathways exist that lead to systemic anaphylaxis reactions in vivo: IgE-sensitized m
NC - According to Health Canada, close to 6 percent of Canadian children have a food allergy.. Greater public awareness and understanding of anaphylaxis could help save lives.. Elizabeth Monk, a spokesperson for Allerject, notes that the seriousness of anaphylaxis is generally not well understood. "Many people dont know that it can be life-threatening. And many are uncertain about how allergic reactions are triggered, how to spot the symptoms, and what to do in an emergency," she says.. How much do you know about severe allergic reactions?

Acute Systemic Anaphylaxis Anaphylaxis is a systemic allergic reaction involving the respiratory and/or the cardiovascular system; it has a rapid onset
A new study out of the McGill University Health Center in Montreal, Canada and published in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (JACI) notes that anaphylaxis, which is a sudden and potentially life-threatening allergic reaction, seems to be increasing among children. The percentage of emergency department visits have doubled over a four-year period in the area.. "With the rising rates of allergies among Canadian children, we were interested in determining if anaphylaxis rates are also increasing," said the main researcher. "Our findings suggest a worrisome increase in anaphylaxis rate that is consistent with the world-wide reported increase.". Having that reaction to an allergen can occur within seconds or minutes of exposure to certain foods, medications, insect venom or latex. Some symptoms of anaphylaxis are swelling, hives, lowered blood pressure, and dilated blood vessels and in severe cases and be life-threatening.. The annual percentage in the area of emergency department ...
Although many people take bee pollen as a health supplement, it can cause severe anaphylactic reactions. However, most people are unaware of the risks, states an article published in CMAJ (Canadian Medical Association Journal).
Anaphylaxis does not occur the first time someone comes in contact with an allergen. During the first exposure, the persons immune system, which fights infections and disease, responds to the allergen as if it were a threat. When exposed to the allergen again, the persons body tries to "defend" itself by releasing chemicals into the blood that cause inflammation throughout the body and the severe allergic symptoms known as anaphylaxis.. Common anaphylaxis symptoms are itchy or red skin, swelling, trouble breathing, hoarseness, a runny or stuffed nose, throwing up, a fast heartbeat, or passing out. If someone has anaphylaxis more than once, signs may change each time.. Treatment for anaphylaxis includes an injection of epinephrine (adrenaline) right away. Other medications like prednisone (a steroid) and antihistamines treat the reaction and usually will be continued for a few days. With prompt treatment, an episode usually ends within an hour, but some can last longer. Sometimes symptoms ...
At Odense University Hospital, nurses take part in a simulation training in critical patient care for younger doctors. One of the scenarios used is anaphylactic shock after the application of IV antibiotics. 49 out of 50 nurses realized within the first two minutes, that the simulation patient suffered from anaphylaxis. 48 out of 50 nurses stopped the IV with the antibiotic. Often, oxygen and IV NaCl was administered, and thereafter the doctor, who was five minutes away was called. Only two out of 50 nurses primarily injected adrenalin according to the hospital guideline.. Because of this, in 48 out of 50 cases adrenalin was given after more than five minutes. According to Pumphrey (2000), the median for a deadly anaphylactic reaction after the IV administration of medication is five minutes. Adrenalin is according to EAACI Guidelines 2014 and ERC Guidelines 2010 the primary treatment for anaphylactic shock and the only treatment that is lifesaving in such a situation. ...

A 4 month old infant presents to your hospital with a history of becoming unwell with difficulty in breathing after being given a different cows milk formula. She had previous devevloped urticaria with some porriage. This case incorporates a few common clinical challenges: how to recognise anaphylaxis in infants, identifying the responsible allergen and determining the most appropriate anaphylaxis management plan. Recognition of anaphylaxis in infancy: anaphylaxis can be difficult to recognise in infants and readily confused with other presentations (Simons 2007). Finding the responsible allergen: in this case, there is seemingly no contact with a new food. The challenge is that food manufacturers use multiple ingrediates in processed food so that a cows milk formula will not only include cows milk (Roberts 2008). Additionally other non food allergens should be considered, examples are latex and insect stings. Some food may only behave as allergens with a co-factor such as exercise. Skin prick testing

To establish a useful laboratory protocol to investigate possible cases of fatal anaphylaxis, we measured mast-cell-derived tryptase levels and allergen-specific immunoglobulin E (IgE) antibody levels in sera obtained prior to or within 24 h after death from 19 anaphylaxis victims. Elevated serum tryptase levels (range = 12 ng/mL to 150 μg/mL) were found in nine of nine Hymenoptera sting fatalities, six of eight food-induced fatalities, and two of two reactions to diagnostic/therapeutic agents. Tryptase levels were normal (,10 ng/mL) in 57 sequential sera obtained postmortem from six control patients. Tryptase could not be measured by pleural or pericardial fluids for technical reasons. Serum IgE antibodies were elevated in five of the nine Hymenoptera sting fatalities and in eight of the eight fatal food reactions; assays were unavailable for the two diagnostic/therapeutic agents. If elevated, the victims serum IgE antibodies to food could be used to identify allergens in uneaten portions of ...

Background: Previous US population-based epidemiologic studies of anaphylactic deaths have been limited by small populations and/or few deaths. The objective of this study was to determine the 10-year incidence of death from anaphylaxis in Florida and its descriptive epidemiology.. Methods: Patients who died from anaphylaxis from 1996 to 2005 were identified from ICD-9 and ICD-10 codes on death certificates statewide. Age, race and gender-specific anaphylactic death rates were calculated.. Results: There were 89 deaths among Florida residents. The individuals with autopsy confirmed diagnoses, and those with clinical diagnoses only, did not differ with regard to race, anaphylactic triggers or the clinical variables of lung and heart disease. Annual death rate for anaphylaxis in Florida was 5.02/10 000 000. The relative risk of death from anaphylaxis was 14.09 for individuals ≥65 years old (P = 0.0000002) and 6.38 for individuals 35-64 years old (P = 0.0019) compared with those who were 5-14 ...

We were disappointed that a number of myths about Group B Strep screening were reiterated in the article "Streptococcus B in pregnancy: to screen or not to screen?"1. Dr McCartney is concerned that alongside the very apparent potential benefits of screening, the potential limitations and harms are also raised. Clearly any decision about screening should consider both. However, there are some statements in the article with which we take issue:. 1. Risk of fatal anaphylaxis "The risks of antibiotic use include anaphylaxis, which is thought to be fatal in one in 10,000 women treated" is an unreferenced statement taken from the UK National Screening Committees 2008 review of antenatal screening for group B Streptococcus2. Potentially fatal anaphylaxis is clearly a risk but extremely rare. Law et al3 reported that 1.8 million women in the US will have been given benzylpenicillin (or ampicillin) between 1997 and 2001 and no deaths from anaphylaxis were reported. Furthermore, a review of UK data by ...
anaphylaxis must take into account the sensitivity of the recipient, the dose and character of the diagnostic or therapeutic agent, and the effect of the route of administration on the rate of absorption. Beta blockers are relatively contraindicated in persons at risk for anaphylactic reactions, especially those sensitive to Hymenoptera venom or those undergoing immunotherapy for respiratory system allergy. If there is a definite history of a past anaphylactic reaction to a medication, even though mild, it is advisable to select a structurally unrelated agent. A knowledge of cross-reactivity among agents is critical since, for example, cephalosporins have a cross-reactive ring structure with the penicillins. When skin testing, a prick or scratch skin test should precede an intradermal test, since the latter has a higher risk of causing anaphylaxis. These tests should be performed before the administration of certain materials that are likely to elicit anaphylactic reactions, such as allergenic ...
Allergy: Anaphylaxis. Anaphylaxis is a rare but severe allergic reaction that can occur after exposure to an allergy-causing substance. If you have a history of allergies or a family history of anaphylactic reactions, you may be at higher risk. Causes of anaphylaxis include certain medications, latex, insect bites and stings, and foods such as peanuts, shellfish, and dairy products.
Among the most common causes of anaphylactic shock is penicillin (1 response to 5000 exposures), insect venom and application of radiocontrast agents. Anaphylaxis is an acute, life-threatening syndrome with multisystemic manifestations. Anaphylactic...
The incidence of anaphylaxis in children and adolescents turns around 10/100 000 children per year. In this age group food allergy is the most important cause of anaphylaxis, followed by reactions to medication, latex and insect stings. Most children experiencing anaphylaxis are atopic. However, anaphylaxis due to insect stings is not correlated with atopy. Dermatological and respiratory symptoms occur most frequently, whereas one out of four patients has gastrointestinal or cardiovascular symptoms. The recurrence risk of anaphylaxis is estimated at 1/12 patients per year. In our own patient group, we recorded 39 anaphylactic episodes in 32 patients in 18 months. Mean patient age was 4 year. Food was the cause of anaphylaxis in 28/39 episodes ...
In contrast to the standardized schemes of SIT for pollen-induced and pollen-related allergies mentioned previously, in certain food allergies, individually adapted schemes have to be applied. Especially in protein allergy, like CM allergy in young children with atopic eczema, the variable response of each patient to the different allergen components may influence the potential clinical outcome. Therefore, the mode of application of ASIT is a very delicate matter and not seldom has to be interrupted and discontinued because of the occurrence of uncontrolled side effects that might indicate possible differences in the mechanism, which are known for classical immunotherapy with airway allergies. With respect to the fact that prolonged elimination diets are not without risks, such as deficiency and growth retardation,[37] eating disorders, impaired psychosocial development,[38, 39] or even severe anaphylactic reactions,[40] SIT has become a successfully used alternative, the major aim of which is ...
For the first time, the Academy is presenting a written emergency plan for allergy and anaphylaxis that can be individualized for use by patients, families, health care professionals and schools. The plan is included in one of two clinical reports from the Section on Allergy and Immunology that aim to enhance the care of children at risk for allergic reactions. The Allergy and Anaphylaxis Emergency Plan is a customizable PDF available at www.aap.org/aaep. It also is incorporated in the clinical report Guidance on Completing a Written Allergy and Anaphylaxis Emergency Plan, which is available at http://pediatrics.aappublications.org/content/early/2017/02/09/peds.2016-4005 and will be published in the March issue of Pediatrics. Benefits of the plan. The emergency plan was created with the support and advice of multiple AAP committees, councils and sections, and was evaluated to ensure it meets health literacy recommendations. For patients at risk for anaphylaxis, the provision of emergency action ...
Anaphylaxis is a potentially life threatening, severe allergic reaction and should always be treated as a medical emergency. Anaphylaxis occurs after exposure to an allergen (usually to foods, insects or medicines), to which a person is allergic. Not all people with allergies are at risk of anaphylaxis.

Acute, often explosive, allergic systemic reaction, characterized by circulatory failure (e.g. alteration of level of consciousness, low arterial blood pressure, weakness or absence of peripheral pulses, cold extremities secondary to reduced peripheral circulation, flushed face and increased perspiration) with or without bronchospasm and/or laryngospasm/laryngeal oedema leading to respiratory distress. May also include pruritis, generalized flushes, angioedema (hives), seizures, vomiting, abdominal cramps and incontinence. It occurs in previously sensitized persons who receive the sensitizing antigens again. Supplementary information on vaccine safety WHO/V&B/00.

I was recently contacted by a US based company who had read some of the blog where I talk about our experience of using BVT to ask me if I would share their infographic detailing the effects of anaphylaxis on the body. This is an interactive chart allowing the reader to pick the side effect…
If a drug brings about a hypersensitivity, the repeated administration of the substance can provoke allergic fever reactions - even back when the first intake took place a number of years earlier. Allergic-type fever reactions run their course very quickly and violently. In this instance, the mortality rate of severe anaphylactic reaction is extremely high. The patient is however threatened primarily by the anaphylactic reaction, the temperature increase is merely a secondary symptom, which is followed by a volatile circulatory reaction. Patients complain of itching, nausea and dizziness. The release of histamine leads to an expansion of peripheral vessels and a massive drop in blood pressure. The body tries to compensate for this by initiating a drastic increase in heart rate - usually in vain. Until paramedic assistance or an ambulance arrives, the patient should be placed in the shock position. In pharmacotherapy, doses of adrenalin, antihistamines or corticosteroids have to be sufficiently ...
For rarer side effects (affecting fewer than 1 in 1000 people), ask to see the Patient Information Leaflet for the vaccine you are offered.. As with any vaccine, medicine or food, there is a very small chance of a severe allergic reaction (anaphylaxis). Anaphylaxis is different from less severe allergic reactions because it causes life-threatening breathing and/or circulation problems. It is always serious but can be treated with adrenaline. In the UK between 1997 and 2003 there were a total of 130 reports of anaphylaxis following ALL immunisations, but all of these people survived. Around 117 million doses of vaccines were given in the UK during this period, making the overall rate around 1 in 900,000. Depending on the cause of the reaction, and following expert guidance, the person may be able to have vaccinations in the future.. Reactions listed under possible side effects or adverse events on vaccine product information sheets may not all be directly linked to the vaccine. See Vaccine ...

Simultaneous pre-treatment with antihistamines that block both the H1 and H4 antihistamine receptors suppressed the gastrointestinal symptoms of food allergy in mice, according to researchers at National Jewish Health.
If youre with someone having signs and symptoms of anaphylaxis, dont wait to see whether symptoms get better. Seek emergency treatment right away. In severe cases, untreated anaphylaxis can lead to death within half an hour. An antihistamine pill, such as diphenhydramine (Benadryl), isnt sufficient to treat anaphylaxis. These medications can help relieve allergy symptoms, but work too slowly in a severe reaction.. ...

Anaphylactic and anaphylactoid reactions during anesthesia are generally caused by neuromuscular blocking agents, some general anesthetics, antibiotics, blood products, opioids, latex and rarely by anticoagulant agents such as heparins [3]. Cardiovascular collapse due to anaphylaxis is a vasodilatory shock, characterized by an abrupt fall in systemic vascular resistance, enhanced vascular permeability, intravascular volume depletion and metabolic acidosis with hyperlactatemia.. Metabolic acidosis is mainly derived from poor tissue perfusion due to severe hypotension and low perfusion pressure rather than inadequate systemic oxygen delivery only. The distribution of cardiac output to the various organs and to the regulation of the microcirculation that can be substantially altered in several conditions (i.e. distributive shock) where local control of vascular tone is altered and the formation of edema may contribute to damage to the distribution of blood flow. Multiple mediators from mast cells, ...

1. Nine unoperated dogs snowed a rise of blood sugar dunng anaphylactic shock. In six of these dogs the rise was 60 mg. or over.. 2. Six dogs in which one adrenal had long previously been extirpated and the opposite splanchnic nerve cut, showed a low preliminary level of blood sugar, and a relative rise of blood sugar during anaphylaxis, but of less degree than in the unoperated animals. In no case was it greater than 52 mg.. 3. Anoxemia did not appear to be a complicating factor, as evidenced by determination of the oxygen content of the arterial blood before and during shock.. 4. The rise in blood sugar, which occurs in spite of the loss of adrenal activity, is probably due to the venous stasis of the liver seen in anaphylaxis in the dog, because this rise in blood sugar can be simulated in a normal non-sensitized dog by mechanically constricting the hepatic veins for a brief interval.. 5. There are, therefore, probably two factors responsible for the hyperglycemia associated with anaphylaxis ...
Adverse events of special interest include infusion reactions, integument toxicities, diarrhea, stomatitis, hypomagnesemia, and pulmonary, vascular, and cardiac toxicities.

Polysorbate 80 is similar to Sodium Deoxycholate in its ability to increase cell permeability, damage, and bursting. After injection it can rapidly metabolize into sorbitol and ethylene oxide which is much more toxic than the original chemical. When Polysorbate 80 breaks down there are 20 moles of ethylene oxide for every mole of sorbitol. These polysorbates have been shown to cause dangerous, sometimes fatal effects, when given through a needle. Changes in heart function can occur immediately. The blood-brain-barrier (BBB) can be weakened and penetrated, followed by seizures and even death. Polysorbates demonstrate synergistic toxicity with a wide range of chemicals.. Polysorbate 80 has been found to negatively affect the immune system and cause severe anaphylactic shock which can kill. According to Annals of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology, Volume 95, Number 6, December 2005 , pp. 593-599(7), "it is of current relevance as a hidden inductor of anaphylactoid reactions", and "Polysorbate 80 ...
Abstract: Components of the cyclic nucleotide system--cAMP, cGMP, activities of adenylate cyclase (AC) and phosphodiesterase (PDase) were studied in brain, lung, adrenal gland, liver tissues, in blood plasma (cAMP, cGMP) and in leukocytes (AC and PDase) of guinea pigs at the periods of sensibilization and development of anaphylaxis. Dibutyryl cAMP was preadministered in a number of the animals in order to correct possible alterations in the system of cyclic nucleotides and to stimulate unspecific resistance of the organism. Distinct alterations were observed in the patterns studied after sensibilization of the animals, especially pronounced in anaphylactic shock. Preadministration of dibutyryl cAMP prevented development of anaphylactic shock in all the animals treated with the antigen. Even after repeated administration of the antigen the antigen. Even after repeated administration of the antigen the anaphylactic shock was observed only in 50% of these animals. The data obtained suggest that ...

From 481 identified allergy-related case records, 136 (28%) met guideline criteria for anaphylaxis. Seventy-six (56%) of these confirmed cases were deemed high acuity by medical dispatchers. Self-medication and bystander first-aid was recorded in 60 (44%) anaphylactic events; 34 (25%) received epinephrine. Paramedics administered epinephrine in an additional 49 cases (36%); only 7% received all three primary pre-hospital anaphylaxis treatments: epinephrine, corticosteroids, and antihistamines. Factors associated with pre-hospital epinephrine administration included: previous episode of anaphylaxis (adjusted odds ratio [aOR]=4.9, 95% confidence interval [CI]: 1.30, 19.21); administration of corticosteroids by bystanders or EMS personnel (aOR=3.8, 95% CI: 1.36, 10.65); and transport severity (aOR=3.2, 95% CI: 1.21, 8.36).. ...
A food allergy is defined as a reaction of the bodys immune system to a certain component, usually a protein, in a food or ingredient1 . The foreign particle triggers the body to produce immunoglobulin E (IgE) which then triggers other cells to release substances that cause inflammation. A food allergy is not an intolerance or sensitivity, as these do not trigger an IgE immune response. Reactions can differ in severity and the most severe anaphylactic reactions can be life-threatening. A licensed physician must determine and provide documentation of a students life-threatening food allergy.. ...
Blood pressure measurements are twice as high in children with Anaphylaxis than in infants. -Signs of uncomfortableness such as "irritability, persistent crying, and somnolence", are harder to interpret in infants than they are in children which may be why Anaphylaxis in infants is often overlooked.

The history of immunisation can be traced through two major narratives. The first is a story of profound benefit to global health, the other a complex tale of risk and uncertainty versus safety and public confidence. These narratives are forever intertwined, not least because as successful immunisation programmes lead to progressive reductions in disease risk, so the prospect of adverse vaccine-related events becomes a dominant public concern.. Anaphylaxis has long been recognised as a rare but serious complication of vaccination, but despite millions of infants and children receiving vaccine doses every year, data describing the incidence of anaphylaxis as an adverse event following immunisation (AEFI) are surprisingly sparse. Erlewyn-Lajeunesse et als prospective survey of anaphylaxis as an AEFI, published in this issue, provides a valuable addition to the existing evidence concerning vaccination safety.1.

What is anaphylaxis? The Allergy & Asthma Center in Maryland provides information on anaphylaxis symptoms and treatment. Learn more.
Anaphylaxis is an emergency condition in which a normally harmless substance which the body treats as harmful causes the bodys immune system to trigger a series of severe reactions throughout the body. These reactions may include swelling of the tongue or swelling in other places, a fast heart beat, or nausea. In a severe form of anaphylaxis, known as anaphylactic shock, the heart is unable to pump enough blood around the body for the organs to survive. This is because blood vessels have become much wider, meaning that blood cannot travel as far with each heartbeat. This can be fatal if untreated.. ...
BACKGROUND Anaphylaxis due to nuts is frequent in humans; to the best of the authors knowledge, it has not been reported previously in dogs. CASE REPORT A 5-year-old female, intact, Vizsla dog was presented with acute diarrhoea, vomiting, respiratory distress and erythematous wheals. The dog had eaten walnuts, which she had been fed in small amounts for years, hours before the onset of clinical signs. A diagnosis of generalized anaphylaxis was made. Skin testing and Western blotting revealed positive results with walnuts and hazelnuts. CONCLUSIONS AND CLINICAL IMPORTANCE This case report illustrates the need for a thorough food history and for recognition that a dog may experience severe allergic reactions to unusual and regularly fed food items. It also shows that allergen specific tests may help to confirm the diagnosis and help in planning the dogs future dietary regime. ...

bee stings and certain foods, medicines, and pollens) can trigger allergic reactions in certain people.. First-time exposure may produce only a mild reaction. Repeated exposures may lead to more serious reactions. Once a person has had an exposure or an allergic reaction (is sensitized), even a very limited exposure to a very small amount of allergen can trigger a severe reaction.. Most severe allergic reactions occur within seconds or minutes after exposure to the allergen. Some reactions can occur after several hours, particularly if the allergen causes a reaction after it has been eaten. In very rare cases, reactions develop after 24 hours.. Anaphylaxis is a sudden and severe allergic reaction that occurs within minutes of exposure. Immediate medical attention is needed for this condition. Without treatment, anaphylaxis can get worse very quickly and lead to death within 15 minutes. ...
In a new article published in the Annals of of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology, experts recommend the use of epinephrine for all severe allergic reactions, even if a patients reaction may not meet all the established criteria for anaphylaxis.
Anaphylaxis is a clinical syndrome often presenting as a medical emergency requiring immediate recognition of symptoms, proper treatment and, if possible, the identification and elimination of risk factors. The symptoms of anaphylaxis are mainly determined by chemicals mediators released upon activation of the immune cells. Mast cells which are abundant in cardiovascular tissues, are the main cells activated during anaphylaxis. Human cardiac mast cells have been identified at the site of sarcolemma, within perivascular tissues, in the adventitia of large coronary arteries, and within coronary plaques. Cardiac mast cells display unique immunological and functional features that make them distinct from mast cells in other tissues. Mast cells play a complex role in the development of several pathological processes in the heart. High affinity receptors for IgE (FcṘI) and for C5a anaphylatoxin are involved in development of systemic and cardiac anaphylactic reactions. Furthermore, in myocardial ...

However, the major allergens of P. chinensis have not yet been characterized. Methods We selected seven patients with histories of anaphylaxis induced by P. chinensis. Two-dimensional electrophoresis (2-DE) was used to identify the major allergens. We subsequently performed Western blots for P. chinensis-specific IgEs, N-terminal amino acid sequencing, ESI-MS/MS, and RT-PCR using primers based on the N-terminal sequence. Results Six of the anaphylactic subjects had an IgE specific to a 23 kDa allergen of P. chinensis. Two ...

It has been estimated that about 1.1% of the population of the United States, over three million Americans, have peanut or tree nut allergies. The peanut is actually not a nut at all but is a legume, more closely related to beans and peas. While not the most common form of allergy, peanuts are the number one cause of fatal anaphylactic reactions triggered by food allergies in the United States. The proportion of children who have nut allergy also appears to be on the increase and, while some people are only allergic to one type of nut, others have multiple nut allergies. It is not an allergy that people usually outgrow. These factors combine to give nut allergy a higher profile than some other types of allergic conditions.Nut allergies are more common in adults than children, despite the fact that food allergies are generally more prevalent in children. When children develop a food allergy it is usually during the first two years of life. Once they have reached three years of age it is accepted ...

Treatment failure during venom immunotherapy (VIT) may be associated with a variety of risk factors. Our aim was to evaluate the association of baseline serum tryptase concentration (BTC) and of other parameters with the frequency of VIT failure during the maintenance phase. In this observational prospective multicenter study, we followed 357 patients with established honey bee or vespid venom allergy after the maintenance dose of VIT had been reached. In all patients, VIT effectiveness was either verified by sting challenge (n = 154) or patient self-reporting of the outcome of a field sting (n = 203). Data were collected on BTC, age, gender, preventive use of anti-allergic drugs (oral antihistamines and/or corticosteroids) right after a field sting, venom dose, antihypertensive medication, type of venom, side effects during VIT, severity of index sting reaction preceding VIT, and duration of VIT. Relative rates were calculated with generalized additive models. 22 patients (6.2%) developed ...
Results:. The most common clinical presentation of latex allergy is a nonimmunologic, irritant dermatitis of the hand. Contact dermatitis (type IV delayed hypersensitivity reactions to rubber additives) is the most common immunologic manifestation of latex rubber allergy. Type I allergic responses are less common and include contact urticaria, rhinoconjunctivitis, asthma, and anaphylaxis. Seven percent to 10% of health care workers regularly exposed to latex and 28% to 67% of children with spina bifida have a positive skin test result to latex proteins indicating increased blood levels of IgE antibody. About one third of patients with positive skin test results, however, do not yet have symptoms of latex allergy. Systemic (life-threatening) anaphylactic shock can occur intraoperatively in highly sensitive patients because of mucosal absorption of latex protein allergens from the surgeons gloves. The present treatment for latex allergy is careful avoidance of latex materials. In addition, the ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Inhibitory effect of nifedipine and cromolyn sodium on skin reactions and 45ca uptake and histamine release in rat mast cells induced by various stimulating agents. AU - Tanizaki, Yoshiro. AU - Akagi, Katsumi. AU - Lee, Kyung Nam. AU - Townley, Robert G.. PY - 1983. Y1 - 1983. N2 - The effect of nifedipine, one of the calcium channel antagonists, was examined in allergic and nonspecific reactions using rat skin and peritoneal mast cells. Rat passive cutaneous anaphylaxis response mediated by IgE antibody was inhibited by nifedipine (100 μg/rat) and also by cromolyn sodium (5 mg/rat). Skin reactions induced by histamine or methacholine were not inhibited, and skin reaction induced by serotonin was slightly inhibited by these drugs. The 45Ca uptake and histamine release in sensitized mast cells stimulated by ovalbumin were suppressed by nifedipine. In actively sensitized cells, nifedipine seems to be more effective on the inhibition of 45Ca uptake, but less effective on histamine ...
