Milwaukee, WI (PRWEB) January 31, 2013
Medical professionals who care for patients with allergies, asthma and immunologic disorders now have access to The Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology: In Practice, a new peer-reviewed publication. The American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology (AAAAI) today announced the launch of JACI: In Practice, a journal devoted to presenting the best clinical research and practical management recommendations in allergy/immunology.
An official AAAAI publication, JACI: In Practice brings timely clinical papers, instructive case reports, and the latest management recommendations to clinical allergists, pediatricians, dermatologists, internists and other physicians concerned with clinical manifestations of allergies in their practice. The inaugural issue of JACI: In Practice is currently available open access at http://www.jaci-inpractice.org. The latest research summaries from JACI: In Practice are available from the AAAAI website—http://www.aaaai.org/global/latest-research---news.aspx—and there is an RSS feed for subscriptions.
“Advancing clinical care is impossible without high quality, outcomes-based clinical studies, and JACI: In Practice will serve as an important venue for this exciting research,” said AAAAI President A. Wesley Burks, MD, FAAAAI. “This vision of a new journal was made possible through the dedicated work and vision of many AAAAI members and leaders.”
Michael Schatz, MD, MS, FAAAAI, a past President of the AAAAI, is Editor-in-Chief of this journal. Dr. Schatz is a current member and former Chief of the Department of Allergy at Kaiser Permanente in San Diego, CA. He is also a Clinical Professor in the Department of Medicine at the University of California, San Diego.
“JACI: In Practice covers the spectrum of diseases treated by the allergist/immunologist, with an emphasis on information that is practical for clinicians,” said Dr. Schatz. “This information can be used in everyday practice or help in acquiring the latest knowledge or skills that can be directly applied to patient care.”
Rounding out the editorial team are Deputy Editor Robert Zeiger, MD, PhD, FAAAAI, and Associate Editor Scott Sicherer, MD, FAAAAI. Dr. Zeiger is Director of Allergy Research at Kaiser Permanente in San Diego, CA, and also a Clinical Professor in the Department of Pediatrics at the University of California, San Diego. Dr. Sicherer is Assistant Professor of Pediatrics at the Mt. Sinai School of Medicine, Division of Allergy/Immunology in New York, NY.
