  • Their aim is to help people with severe allergy to be more confidently in control of their lives. (wikipedia.org)
  • The charity actively campaigns to raise awareness of anaphylaxis with the general public and with the relevant authorities for better allergy care and treatments. (wikipedia.org)
  • The Anaphylaxis Campaign is a founder member of the National Allergy Strategy Group, a coalition of charities, professional organisations and industry, that seeks to improve health services for allergy sufferers in the UK. (wikipedia.org)
  • The Anaphylaxis Campaign has tried to raise awareness of the problems caused by inconsistency in how severe allergy is diagnosed. (wikipedia.org)

  • infections
  • And big plunges, such as those caused by uncontrolled bleeding, severe infections or allergic reactions, can be life-threatening. (mayoclinic.org)
  • Children less than 2 years of age are most susceptible to severe HMPV infections, and HMPV is the second or third leading cause of viral lower respiratory illness in children. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • This study included HIV-negative and human herpevisrus 8 (Kaposi's sarcoma-associated herpesvirus) seronegative patients aged 20-78 years old with symptomatic multicentric Castleman's disease (fatigue, malaise, night sweats, peripheral sensory neuropathy, anorexia, pruritus, dyspnea, oedma, hyperhidrosis) Siltuximab may lower resistance to infections and should not be administered to patients with severe infections. (wikipedia.org)
  • moderate
  • The severity of acne vulgaris (Gr. ἀκµή, "point" + L. vulgaris, "common") can be classified as mild, moderate, or severe as this helps to determine an appropriate treatment regimen. (wikipedia.org)
  • asthma
  • To establish definitively whether parasites can protect against allergic disease, and specifically asthma, ultimately requires a randomised clinical trial of parasite infection in patients with asthma. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Epidemiological evidence suggests that human hookworm infection is associated with a reduced risk of asthma and allergic disease. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • This association is potentially important not only to understanding the aetiology of asthma and allergic disease, but also because it suggests that hookworms or their products might be therapeutically effective in these conditions. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • respiratory
  • Human respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is a common cause of upper respiratory tract illnesses as well as more severe lower respiratory illnesses, including bronchiolitis and pneumonia. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Inflammatory
  • IL-1 is produced in response to inflammatory stimuli and mediates various physiologic responses, including inflammatory and immunologic reactions. (wikipedia.org)
  • Inflammatory reactions caused by anti-dsDNA complexes with extracellular DNA in the glomerular basement membrane cause macrophage IL-1 release onto neighbouring mesangial cell IL-1 receptors. (wikipedia.org)
