    Added On : 10th September 2012

    asthma childViral infections in newborns "cripple" part of the immune system and increase the risk of asthma later in life, US researchers studying mice have said.

    They say their findings, published in the journal Nature Medicine, will help develop ways of preventing asthma.

    The charity Asthma UK said the study had "really exciting" potential.

    peanutsThe New Test That Determines Your Risk of a Deadly Allergic Reaction

    A new test to indicate which people are most at risk from life-threatening allergic reactions has been developed by British scientists.

    The procedure measures levels of an enzyme in the blood which is involved in allergic reactions that can cause potentially fatal anaphylactic shock.

    Medics hope the test could become the definitive, gold standard test for the diagnosis of severe allergic reactions across the world.
