Simon P. Hogan, PhD was recently appointed as the Director of Research of the Division of Allergy/Immunology. He joins the Division Director, Marc E. Rothenberg, MD, PhD, and Amal H. Assa'ad, MD, the Associate Division Director, in leading the division in its mission to improve the health of children with allergic and immune conditions through innovative research, outstanding clinical care and education of the current and next generation of leaders in healthcare and research. In this new role, Hogan will strengthen the guidance available to division researchers with his hands-on approach and will be an advocate for process improvements that facilitate quality research.
July 31, 2013 A Patch to Treat Peanut Allergies in Works
A recent article in Elle magazine has speculated that GMO (genetically modified organism) corn can promote eosinophil-related diseases. There are statements in this article that are scientifically inaccurate in our opinion. The magazine article describes the presence of eosinophils in a nasal swab. This finding by itself is not indicative of an eosinophilic disorder. The presence of eosinophils in a nasal swab specimen is a common finding in patients with hay fever (allergic rhinitis), a disease process that has been well established to be caused by respiratory allergies. Further, it is our expert opinion that there is not sufficient knowledge or scientific foundation to warrant the claim in this article that eosinophilic disorders arise from GMO corn.
This statement is released by all of the Cincinnati Children's Hospital doctors mentioned in the article.Marc E. Rothenberg MD, PhD; Amal H. Assa'ad, MD; Simon P. Hogan, PhD; Karl von Tiehl, MD
