Hives (or Urticaria) are a kind of skin rash notable for dark red, raised, itchy bumps. Hives are frequently caused by allergic reactions; however, there are many non-allergic causes.
Researchers have developed a chicken egg that may be safe for people with egg white allergies. Chicken egg allergies are one of the most common allergies in children.
Researchers at Greece’s B.S.R.C. “Alexander Fleming” has perfected a method for identifying DNA traces in honey, indicating the species with which honeybees interact.
Researchers at Emory University have uncovered a mechanism for skin cell death that might lead to novel therapies for “flesh-eating” infections, alopecia, hives, and possibly even melanoma, the deadliest type of skin cancer.
Researchers combined advanced computational methods with experimental studies to gain new insight, at the cell level, into how the plant compound formononetin might be used to treat food allergies.
In Central and South America, predatory blood-sucking bugs transmit the causative agent of the widely prevalent Chagas disease.
Recently discovered genetic knowledge of two nuisance western honey bee subspecies will help commercial and hobby beekeepers.
Bumblebees are important pollinators because they pollinate many different plant species and are extremely resilient. They can still manage to fly at temperatures that are too cold for other pollinators.
Around the world, honeybees are dying in large numbers. This die-off is in part because of a deadly virus that can kill bees or impair their ability to return to the hives after foraging. But in a study published September 28 in the journal iScience, researchers show that a cheap and naturally occurring chemical compound could prevent or reverse the effects of the virus in bees.
In order to fight pathogens, mast cells regulate inflammatory reactions of the immune system.
