In the present analysis, we aimed to evaluate the management and risk factors of refractory anaphylaxis to highlight possible clinical implications for updating current management algorithms.

Preventive measures to decrease the frequency and intensity of anaphylactic events are essential to provide optimal care for allergic patients. Aggravating factors may trigger or increase the severity of anaphylaxis and therefore need to be recognized and avoided. Our data suggest it may be possible to identify patients who require intensified preventive measures due to their relatively higher risk for severe anaphylaxis by considering endogenous and exogenous factors.

We read with great interest the article “Estrogen increases the severity of anaphylaxis in female mice through enhanced endothelial nitric oxide synthase expression and nitric oxide production” by Hox et al.1 Therein, the authors provide experimental evidence that female mice exhibit more severe anaphylactic reactions than do their male counterparts and offer mechanistic insights by showing that estrogen promotes vascular leakage during an anaphylactic event via enhanced nitric oxide production.

Today I was doing a quick ELISA and realized that the reader was old and produced the results in PDF only. This poses multiple problems as they need to be manually rewritten to a file and post-processed later. Additionally the optical density measurments in my software are automatically calculated into concentration based on some shady functions which I never understood. I decided to change this and learn this and that about analysing ELISA results.


Why do scientists still use journal articles as main form of sharing their research? The paper publication has been with the academics since ages and it surely does need an update. The variety of outputs we have to offer ar modern scientists had dramatically evolved and contains multigiabyte databases along with high quality images, and simple text output. We therefore need a modern medium which allows sharing such sophisticated data and paper simply is not suited for this.
