Anaphylaxis in America

Anaphylaxis in AmericaNEARLY 1-IN-50 AMERICANS AT-RISK OF SEVERE ALLERGIC REACTIONS

Anaphylaxis is More Common the Many Thought, Most Patients are Not Prepared

A novel study by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) published in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (JACI) finds that severe life-threatening allergic reactions – anaphylaxis – are common in the U.S. According to the peer-reviewed study, anaphylaxis very likely occurs in nearly 1-in-50 Americans (1.6%), and the rate is probably higher, close to 1-in-20 (5.1%).

The article, Anaphylaxis in America: The Prevalence and Characteristics of Anaphylaxis in the United States, based on AAFA’s study of the same name, provides one of the most reliable estimates to-date of the prevalence of severe, life-threatening allergies in the general population. It is also helping experts understand how the public, patients and caregivers think, feel and behave regarding anaphylaxis. See the links below for more information.
