Comic: anaphylaxis quickly explained

What is anaphylaxis and how to deal with it? Our comic answers these questions.

The word anaphylaxis comes from the Greek words ana (= against) + phylaxis (= guarding) and refers to a severe, misdirected protective reaction of the body. This reaction can affect the entire body and have life-threatening consequences.
