Spring in Cincinnati. It brings bright colors, maxi dresses and allergies. Because the latter is a spring trend we could all do without, we’re lucky to have the Bernstein family in town.

Dr. Leonard Bernstein, who studied at the University of Cincinnati, started his own practice in 1956. Since then, a number of other doctors have joined the Bernstein Allergy Group, including his two sons, Dr. David Bernstein and Dr. Jonathan Bernstein.


The group focuses on patient care and research for children and adults. There is also a Bernstein Allergy Clinical Research Center, LLC. which conducts studies for drug companies prior to FDA approval. In fact, Dr. David and Jonathan Bernstein “act as investigators for the research center” says Cheryl K. Bernstein RN, research center director. “We have studied most of the drugs that are on the market for allergies,” she says.KITF_InStory.gif

 

The research center conducts studies in house, and many women in particular participate in these studies. Statistically, more women suffer from allergy conditions than men, and at the top of that list is asthma. The research center offers many clinical trials where participants can come in and take part in a trial.

 

“If you don’t have medical insurance, this is a good way to get free treatment and also get paid for your time,” says Dr. Jonathan Bernstein. The relationship between the Bernstein Allergy Group and the Bernstein Allergy Clinical Research Center, LLC is crucial because it allows the doctors to stay “up to date on new advances, which is important because things are rapidly changing,” says Dr. Jonathan Bernstein.

 

And, get this, have you ever heard of a woman who is allergic to her husband? It’s possible, and Dr. Jonathan Bernstein is paving the path to researching this issue. He studies and treats seminal plasma protein hypersensitivity, which is when a woman is literally allergic to her husband’s seminal fluid. Dr. Bernstein has a Web site dedicated to this condition, www.seminalplasmaallergy.org.

 

Another problem common in women is chronic candida vulvovaginal hypersensitivity. English please? We’re talking about chronic yeast infections. “Some women become sensitized to local yeast and don’t respond well to underlying agents,” says Dr. Jonathan Bernstein.

 

So, no matter what allergy you have, kin disorders, chronic dermatitis, metal allergies, soft tissue inflammation, The Bernstein Allergy Group has seen it all, and treated it all. “There’s nothing related to allergies we haven’t evaluated or treated,” says Dr. Jonathan Bernstein.

 

Dr. Jonathan Bernstein’s advice to everyone is that “if you’re having a recurring problem and have tried over the counter medications and seeing your doctor, it’s important to seek consultation. It could be easily treatable and you can prevent significant morbidity, while saving yourself a lot of money as well.” When you don’t have a proper diagnosis you often end up spending money on things that aren’t very helpful.

 

Both the Bernstein Allergy Research Clinic, LLC. and the Bernstein Allergy Group are located at 8444 Winton Rd. in Cincinnati. To learn more, visit www.bernsteinallergyresearch.com.
