  • After the acute phase of the disease is under control, an attempt to reduce the daily dose should be made repeatedly until the patient is receiving the smallest effective dose or the drug is discontinued. (drugs.com)
  • common
  • In many individual, anaphylaxis is mediated by the expansion of T helper 2 cell (TH2-cell), a subset of T cells, together with isotype switching of B cells to generate IgE antibodies specific for common environment allergens (Holgate and Polosa, 2008). (studymode.com)
  • hospital
  • 4 5 Most data for the incidence have been derived from hospital databases, and it is widely believed anaphylaxis is under-recognised and under-reported. (bmj.com)
  • oral
  • Preclinical data showed Deflazacort had acute toxicity with an oral lethal dose (LD50) greater than 5,200mg/kg in a mouse. (wikipedia.org)
  • population
  • Epidemiological studies have shown differing results owing to differences in both definitions of anaphylaxis and the population groups studied. (bmj.com)
