We received a record number of expressions of interest (EOIs) for AIFA grants in 2019. However, we have decided to extend the EOI deadline for the $15,000 Hereditary Angioedema (HAE) clinical research grant, that has been supported by CSL Behring. Grant EOIs should be submitted by 21 May 2019. For an EOI form go to www.allergyimmunology.org.au/grants
A study titled “Tick killing in situ before removal to prevent allergic and anaphylactic reactions in humans: a cross-sectional study” has recently been published.
This publication supports the ASCIA recommendation to prevent allergic reactions to ticks by not forcibly removing the tick. Disturbing the tick may cause the tick to inject more allergen-containing saliva.
