Allergy and Immunology News of the Day

Health News of the Day is a daily summary made from the selected links I post on Twitter. It is in a bullet points format with links to the original sources which include 350 RSS feeds that produce about 2,500 items per day.

  • Cat exposure in the first year of life is a risk factor for wheezing, asthma and rhinoconjunctivitis (dog was OK)

  • Immunogenicity of Anti-TNF- Agents - Chimerical drugs have a higher capacity of inducing immunogenicity. The prevalence of anti-infliximab antibodies in RA varies from 12% to 44%

  • Laryngophar. reflux disease differs from GERD in extent (hypopharynx and above) and timing (when the patient is upright). In patients with chronic and recurrent sinusitis, laryngopharyngeal reflux disease may play a significant role.

  • The role of antileukotriene drugs in management of rhinitis and rhinosinusitis - studies needed

  • Interleukins adapt to parasites: Intestinal worms helped shape human interleukin genes. Parasites leave a footprint on host genomes in the form of single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs).

  • 5 Videos: Mayo Clinic held Tweetcamp to provide basic training for staff in using Twitter, applications in health care
