The Anaphylaxis Interest Section aims to further the understanding of Anaphylaxis and Adverse reactions. We critically evaluate issues surrounding severe food, medication and insect sting allergy as well as other less common diseases including idiopathic anaphylaxis and mast cell disorders. Currently, the Section is undertaking a systematic review of the management of anaphylaxis in schools including the use of school bans and stock epinephrine. This is being performed in concert with the Pediatric Interest Section. The goal is to develop a document with international endorsement and applicability. Other ongoing projects include assessment of oral food immunotherapy and mast cell disorders.
