Spotlight on Annals

Biology of anticytokine drugs and challenges of treating pediatric asthma


April 9, 2018

We are excited about the contents of our April issue of the Annals of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology. This issue has multiple articles that provide the practicing clinician with timely, pragmatic information to stimulate thinking that will translate to improved patient care. Two such articles are worthy of your particular attention as you browse through the pages of this issue.

Common food allergy questions answered and childhood asthma risk


March 26, 2018

I hope you have had a productive March and that Annals has in some way contributed to your productivity. I want to be certain that you are aware of two of the useful articles in this month’s issue.

The first is by Maureen Egan, MD, and Matthew Greenhawt, MD, MBA, MSc, FACAAI, who address multiple common questions about food allergy that are often asked by our patients and their family members. Such questions include:

The atopic march


February 12, 2018

The February issue of the Annals of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology has a special emphasis on the atopic march. From the cover that depicts a typical march from dermatitis through food allergy to asthma and rhinitis, this is a message that bears repeating by all of us to researchers, patients and their families, payers and society at large. This concept has enjoyed  a “practical home” with the practicing allergist-immunologist as we increasingly incorporate prevention strategies into our daily practices.

USP's revisions to sterile compounding standards; atopic dermatitis yardstick and recent advances


January 22, 2018

Hopefully all of you have received the January issue of the Annals of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology and have seen the many great features and articles contained in our pages. I want to point out two articles that I hope many of you have already read but, if not, that you will take the time to do so. They should definitively be useful to you in your practice.

The January 2018 issue of the Annals of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology launches the renewed effort of our journal to serve our readers with the highest possible quality publication features. We have a great new team of editors and support staff who are working very hard to make our journal greater than it ever has been. Of course, the final metric is the quality of the material we publish and its utility to you. In that regard, we have many features that offer “something for everyone” in this issue. Two such manuscripts deserve special mention.

December 27, 2017

As 2017 draws to a close, I want to thank all of the people who make the Annals of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology a successful journal. Our editors, editorial staff and publisher all play integral roles for our journal. But it is you, our readers, that make the efforts to provide a scientific journal for the practicing clinician worthwhile. With these thoughts in mind, I would like to call your attention to two more articles in our Dec. issue that may be useful for you in your practice – both now and in the future.
