Bibliography of Wilford Hall USAF Medical Center: Allergy/Immunology

(Note: The notes below certain publications identify those that have had an impact to alter, in some manner, the practice of allergy/immunology over the course of time, or to provide some historical perspective.)

  1. Jacobs RL, Freedman PM, Boswell RN: Non-allergic rhinitis with eosinophilia (NARES) syndrome.  Clinical and immunological characterization.  J Allergy Clin Immunol 1981;67:253-62

(Note: This was a controversial paper which went against the dogma that all forms of rhinitis were allergic in causation. It was accompanied by an editorial by Dr. Mullarky criticizing the name NARES which made the paper more dominant. It was an essential publication that led to the official recognition of non-allergic forms of rhinitis which changed the practice of allergy. It has stood the test of time and now has been cited 241 times by other articles.)

  1. Jacobs RL, Rake GW, Fournier DC, Chilton RJ, Culver WG, Beckmann CH: Potentiated anaphylaxis in patients with drug-induced beta-adrenergic blockade.   J Allergy Clin Immunol 1981,68:125-27.

(Note: This is this most cited paper (331) which not only changed the practice of allergy, but of pulmonary medicine, cardiology, family medicine. and emergency medicine.  It has also stood the test of time and been confirmed by several other authors.)

  1. Jacobs RL, Lowe RS, Lanier BQ: Adverse reactions to tetanus toxoid.  JAMA 1982;247:40-2.

(Note: This paper debunked the long-held view that true allergy to Tetanus toxoid was a common problem. We were able to show in an enormous number of patients that the only true allergy was delayed hypersensitivity to mercury in the preservative. This paper was published in the JAMA edition in Germany, Japan, and Russia. Very high publication in JAMA.  145 citations in English Literature)

4. Jacobs RL, Koppes GW: Myocardial necrosis associated with isoproterenol abuse:  A ten year follow-up.  Tex Med 1982;78:58-60

5. Jacobs RL, Rake GW, Fournier DC, Chilton RJ, Culver WG, Beckmann CH: Glucagon in anaphylaxis – reply.  J Allergy Clin Immunol 1982;69:331-32

6. Nelson BL, Jacobs RL: Response of the non-allergic rhinitis with eosinophilia (NARES) syndrome to 4% cromolyn sodium nasal solutionJ Allergy Clin Immunol 1982;70:125-28

7. Strom GB, Boswell RN, Jacobs RL: In vivo and in vitro comparison of fire ant venom and fire ant whole body extract.  J Allergy Clin Immunol 1983;72:46-53.


(Note: This paper confirmed the publication from 1976. This was the 1st study done utilizing the new facility with a laboratory. This effort set the stage for continued research into the fire ant.)

8. Rake GW, Jacobs RL: Anaphylactoid reactions to tolmetin and zomepirac.  Ann Allergy 1983;50:323-25

9. Jacobs RL, Freda AJ, Culver WG: Primary nasal polyposis. Ann Allergy 1983;51:500-05


(Note: This paper, when coupled with the NARES paper, was considered another key to defining non-allergic forms of rhinitis.)

13. Hallett JS, Jacobs RL: Recurrent acute bronchitis: The association with undiagnosed bronchial asthma.  Ann Allergy 1985;55:568-70.


 (Note: The importance of this paper has been mainly overlooked by the allergy field but has been highly referenced in the infectious disease literature as the 1st paper tying recurrent bronchitis to hyper-reactive airways and mild asthma. Cited 51 times.)

Anderson DC, Schmalsteig FC, Finegold MJ, Hughes BJ, Rothlein R, Miller LJ, Kohl S, Tosi MF, Jacobs RL, Waldrop TC, Goldman AS, Shearer WT, Springer TA: The severe and moderate phenotypes of heritable Mac-1, LFA-1 deficiency:  Their quantitative  definition and relation to leukocyte dysfunction and clinical features.  J Inf Dis 1985;152:668-89

15. Jacobs RL, Thorner RE, Holcolm JR, Schwietz LA, Jacobs FO: Hypersensitivity pneumonitis caused by Cladosporium in an enclosed hot-tub area.  Ann Int Med 1986;105:204-06.


(Note:  This paper was the 1st paper to identify Cladosporium as an indoor contaminant (now recognized as one of the most common indoor contaminants) and to publish a direct challenge and a natural challenge in the same patient. Leigh Anne Schwietz, a fellow at the time, was a collaborator who underwent a control challenge to Cladosporium.  Very high publication in the Annals of Internal Medicine. Cited 57 times.)

16. Halsey AB, Martin ME, Ruff ME, Jacobs FO, Jacobs RL: Sunflower oil is not allergenic to sunflower seed-sensitive patients.  J Allergy Clin Immunol 1986;78:408-10

(Note: This the first report to demonstrate the safety of ingesting sunflower oil by individuals allergic to sunflower seed.)
