Allergists from around the globe gathered at the 2013 annual conference of the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology (AAAAI) conference in San Antonio, Texas in late February. Allergic Living was there to cover it. Here are some of the intriguing reports that came out of the conference:

  • Intentional Food Allergy Exposures [1]: Researchers have revealed the reasons that a concerning number of parents are knowingly giving their allergic children food that they are allergic to.
  • Pollution Changing Genes [2]: Researchers found that a certain type of air-pollution may be causing a DNA change which results in worsened asthma symptoms, and potentially even new cases of asthma.
  • Milk Therapy Lacks Staying Power [3]: Editor Gwen Smith on the study that showed a surprising reversal among patients who had been successfully treated for milk allergy.
  • Alcohol, Asthma and Aspirin [4]: A group of people with asthma are experiencing respiratory reactions when drinking alcohol. But how does Aspirin fit into the equation?
  • Allergic Children Underweight [5]: Children with multiple food allergies or milk allergy appear to be underweight when compared with their non-allergic peers.
  • A New Spot for the Shot [6]: Investigators discovered that there may be a more effective location for an epinephrine shot in obese patients.
