School-based strategies to reduce food allergy liked anaphylaxis 

The findings of a recent study, published in the Annals of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology, stressed on the need for programs to increase access to epinephrine autoinjectors to treat anaphylaxis caused by food allergies. The research, carried out by Ellen W. Daily Stephen, a first year allergy and immunology fellow in the Department of Internal Medicine at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, and colleagues, found that only 31 percent of schools provide training for all their staff to recognize anaphylaxis and in using epinephrine autoinjectors. The team wrote that additional policy measures are needed to address these concerns, which would help improve response to food-induced anaphylaxis.
