He is a pioneer on aspirin desensitization in treating aspirin exacerbated respiratory disease-which has since been widely adopted after his paper was published in the early 1980's. He was the first to document that seed oil could be allergenic at a time when no one considered cooking oil to be a potential allergen. He had also lectured to physicians in the US and overseas and had served as a sponsored speaker for the New Jersey School of Medicine and Dentistry on upper respiratory tract infections.
