Artist/Company Bio:
Teri J. McDermott, M.A. C.M.I. earned a Masters' degree in Instructional Design/Television in 1978 from the University of Missouri in Columbia, Summa Cum Laude. She holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Medical Art, Cum Laude, from the University of Illinois Medical Center (1975). She has conducted a successful full-time freelance practice since 1981, working primarily with editorial, advertising and patient education projects, with clients both in the U.S. and overseas. Teri has been an honorary Clinical Assistant Professor with the program in Biomedical Visualization, University of Illinois Medical Center, Chicago, since 1985. Teri has been a professional member of the Association of Medical Illustrators since 1977, earned her Fellowship in 1988, and was among the first group of medical illustrators to become board certified in 1993. She served as President of the AMI from 1994-5. She is also a founding member of the Illustrators Partnership of America (IPA). Teri has been an invited speaker at numerous national and international conferences over the past twenty years, including the Association of Medical Illustrators, the Association of Educational Communications Technologists, the Guild of Natural Science Illustrators, the Illinois Trial Lawyers Association, the Medical Artists Association (Great Britain), the AEIMS Association (Europe) and the Australian Institute of Medical and Biological Illustration. Her work was included in The Best in Medical Advertising and Graphics, vols. I & II, and in exhibitions at Chicago's Museum of Science & Industry, the Rochester Institute of Technology, and elsewhere in the US, Australia, Great Britain and France. By invitation, Teri presented a one-person show of 65 color paintings at Chicago's International Museum of Surgical Sciences in 1994. Teri's illustrations have won over thirty awards for creative excellence from the Association of Medical Illustrators, the World Congress on Biomedical Communications, DESI Awards for Graphic Design: USA, the Rx Club of New York, and others. Her life and work were showcased in a feature article published by Airbrush Action magazine in its February 1997 issue. Although a perfectionist at traditionally executed work, Teri currently produces and delivers her work in digital media.

Allergic response causes release of histamine by mast cells triggered by the crosslinking of protein from pollen grains in the nasal passage.

Allergic Hypersensitivity Response, Anaphylaxic Response. An allergy is an abnormal, acquired sensitivity to a given substance, including pollen, drugs, or numerous environmental triggers. Type I hypersensitivity is characterized by excessive activation of mast cells and basophils by IgE, resulting in a systemic inflammatory response that can result in symptoms as benign as a runny nose, to life-threatening anaphylactic shock and death. Type 1 hypersensitivity is an allergic reaction provoked by reexposure to a specific type of antigen referred to as an allergen. Exposure may be by ingestion, inhalation, injection, or direct contact. The difference between a normal immune response and a type I hypersensitive response is that plasma cells secrete IgE. This class of antibodies binds to Fc receptors on the surface of tissue mast cells and blood basophils. Mast cells and basophils coated by IgE are "sensitized." Later exposure to the same allergen, cross-links the bound IgE on sensitized cells resulting in degranulation and the secretion of pharmacologically active mediators such as histamine, leukotriene, and prostaglandin that act on the surrounding tissues. The principal effects of these products are vasodilation and smooth-muscle contraction. The reaction may be either local or systemic. Symptoms vary from mild irritation to sudden death from anaphylactic shock. Treatment usually involves epinephrine, antihistamines, and corticosteroids.

Allergic Reaction. Type 1 hypersensitivity is an allergic reaction provoked by reexposure to a specific type of antigen referred to as an allergen.[3] Exposure may be by ingestion, inhalation, injection, or direct contact. The difference between a normal immune response and a type I hypersensitive response is that plasma cells secrete IgE. This class of antibodies binds to Fc receptors on the surface of tissue mast cells and blood basophils. Mast cells and basophils coated by IgE are "sensitized." Later exposure to the same allergen, cross-links the bound IgE on sensitized cells resulting in degranulation and the secretion of pharmacologically active mediators such as [[mastcell ]], leukotriene, and prostaglandin that act on the surrounding tissues. The principal effects of these products are vasodilation and smooth-muscle contraction. The reaction may be either local or systemic. Symptoms vary from mild irritation to sudden death from anaphylactic shock. Treatment usually involves epinephrine, antihistamines, and corticosteroids. If the entire body gets involved, then anaphylaxis can take place; an acute, systemic reaction that can prove fatal.
