Can you prevent biphasic anaphylaxis?

Biphasic anaphylaxis is characterized by an initial, milder attack followed by a more severe attack, usually within 10 hours. Because there is no way to know who might develop biphasic anaphylaxis, people treated for anaphylaxis are often hospitalized and observed overnight. Corticosteroids have been proposed as a preventive measure but most studies have shown this to be ineffective.
