    Dr. Iris Otani is an allergist and immunologist with specific expertise in drug allergies, secondary hypogammaglobulinemia, and eosinophilic esophagitis. She is the associate program director of the UCSF allergy and immunology fellowship and the medical and quality improvement director for the Allergy & Immunology Clinic. She has led several multi-disciplinary collaborations to build innovative clinical treatment programs for drug allergy, including a cystic fibrosis antibiotic allergy evaluation program, inpatient beta-lactam antibiotic allergy evaluation program, and prenatal penicillin allergy evaluation program. She has published in the area of chemotherapy hypersensitivity and is collaborating with the Oncology division to standardize chemotherapy hypersensitivity evaluation and management. She has developed a program for secondary hypogammaglobulinemia screening and management in collaboration with the UCSF Lung Transplant Program.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
