Allergic Living highlights Canadian anaphylaxis registry
Allergic Living’s Winter 2015 issue features AllerGen’s Cross-Canada Anaphylaxis Registry (C-CARE)—the first-ever prospective study on anaphylaxis.
Launched in 2011, C-CARE identifies anaphylaxis cases through reports from ambulance paramedics, emergency departments and allergists, and collects data on the cause, triggers and management of anaphylaxis in each case.
C-CARE is led by AllerGen investigator Dr. Moshe Ben-Shoshan, a pediatric allergist and immunologist at the Montreal Children’s Hospital. The unique registry will provide the first reliable estimate of anaphylaxis rates in Canada and open the door to new ways of preventing and treating the condition.
