The incidence of emergency treatment of anaphylaxis, the severe form of food-allergic reaction, climbed a remarkable 377 percent in the United States between 2007 and 2016, according to an extensive analysis of private health insurance claims. Among the foods triggering severe reactions, peanut was the single allergen most frequently seen in anaphylaxis (26 percent of cases), while tree nuts and seeds came in second (18 percent of cases).
The FDA has approved the first-ever epinephrine auto-injector designed for infants and small children who weigh between 16.5 to 33 pounds. Auto-injector maker Kaléo developed the new device, called Auvi-Q 0.1 mg, which is expected to be available in the first half of 2018. The device has a smaller dose of epinephrine and the needle length is shorter than the 0.15 mg and 0.3 mg auto-injectors for children and adults that are already on the market.
Following our report on the workplace death of Justin Mathews, 33, from what doctors concluded was a severe anaphylactic reaction from exposure to walnut shell sandblasting, Allergic Living heard concerns from our readers. To gain further understanding, Allergic Living’s Mariam Matti asks Canadian allergist Dr. Antony Ham Pong about the risks from natural materials being used in workplaces, when airborne reactions might occur, and what individuals allergic to tree nuts need to know.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
