Nasal smear bacterial culture and cytology of Japanese ceder pollinosis in pre-season and in season
Nasal symptom appear in some patients with Japanese cedar pollen allergy (JCP) pre-season. More than 50% show neutrophils (no eosinophil) in nasal smears, and Staphylococcus aureus or epidermis are detected by culture in more than 90% of these patients. This study evaluated nasal smear cultures in pre-seasonal JCP and concludes that the results mean that inflammation by Staphylococcus species or Moraxella catarrhalis might involve symptom appearance in pre-season.

Management of rodent exposure and allergy in the pediatric population.
Although rodent allergy has long been recognized as an occupational disease, it has only been in the past decade that it has been recognized as a community-based disease that affects children. Most homes in the US have detectable mouse allergen, but the concentrations in inner-city homes are orders of magnitude higher than those found in suburban homes. Home mouse allergen exposure has been linked to sensitization to mouse, and children with asthma who are both sensitized and exposed to high mouse allergen concentrations at home are at greater risk for symptoms, exacerbations and reduced lung function. Rat allergen is found primarily in inner-city homes and has also been linked to asthma morbidity among sensitized children. The objective of this review is to summarize the scientific literature on rodents and their allergens, the effects of exposure to these allergens on allergic respiratory disease, and to make recommendations, based on this evidence base, for the evaluation and management of mouse allergy in the pediatric population

Cross-reacting carbohydrate determinants and hymenoptera venom allergy.
Hymenoptera stings and pollen exposure induce anti-CCD IgE. In regard to anaphylaxis due to Hymenoptera stings these antibodies are not clinically relevant, but they are important for the specificity of in-vitro tests proving insect venom allergy. The introduction of component based diagnostic IgE testing improves the specificity of in-vitro tests if proteins devoid of CCD epitopes are used

IgE binding to peanut components by four different techniques: Ara h 2 is the most relevant in peanut allergic children and adults.
Several studies have analysed the diagnostic value of specific IgE (sIgE) for individual peanut allergens. However, little is known about the concordance between different techniques available in both children and adults. Sensitization patterns to peanut allergens Ara h 1, 2, 3, and 8 were evaluated using four different techniques: multi-plexed microarray immunoassay, single-plexed IgE assay, SPT and immunoblot. Twenty-two peanut allergic adults and 15 children scored on clinical severity according to double-blind, placebo-controlled food challenges and 27 atopic control patients were included. Comparable sensitivity values were found between all four techniques in adults, with the highest sensitivity for Ara h 2 (76.2-95.5%, compared to 100% with all techniques in children). The multi-plexed assay to Ara h 1 (93.3%) demonstrated a higher sensitivity compared with the other three techniques (P = 0.04) in children, but absolute values were perfectly correlated. There were no differences between adults and children. In adults, sIgE to Ara h 1, 2, and 3 was correlated with clinical severity. No such correlation was found in children.

Allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis: review of literature and proposal of new diagnostic and classification criteria.
Allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (ABPA) is an immunological pulmonary disorder caused by hypersensitivity to Aspergillus fumigatus, manifesting with poorly controlled asthma, recurrent pulmonary infiltrates and bronchiectasis. There are estimated to be in excess of four million patients affected world-wide. The importance of recognizing ABPA relates to the improvement of patient symptoms, and delay in development or prevention of bronchiectasis, one manifestation of permanent lung damage in ABPA. Environmental factors may not be the only pathogenetic factors because not all asthmatics develop ABPA despite being exposed to the same environment. Allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis is probably a polygenic disorder, which does not remit completely once expressed, although long-term remissions do occur. In a genetically predisposed individual, inhaled conidia of A. fumigatus germinate into hyphae with release of antigens that activate the innate and adaptive immune responses (Th2 CD4(+) T cell responses) of the lung. The International Society for Human and Animal Mycology (ISHAM) has constituted a working group on ABPA complicating asthma (www.abpaworkinggroup.org), which convened an international conference to summarize the current state of knowledge, and formulate consensus-based guidelines for diagnosis and therapy. New diagnosis and staging criteria for ABPA are proposed. Although a small number of randomized controlled trials have been conducted, long-term management remains poorly studied. Primary therapy consists of oral corticosteroids to control exacerbations, itraconazole as a steroid-sparing agent and optimized asthma therapy. Uncertainties surround the prevention and management of bronchiectasis, chronic pulmonary aspergillosis and aspergilloma as complications, concurrent rhinosinusitis and environmental control. There is need for new oral antifungal agents and immunomodulatory therapy

Fungal rhinosinusitis: what every allergist should know.
The interaction between fungi and the sinonasal tract results in a diverse range of diseases with an equally broad spectrum of clinical severity. The classification of these interactions has become complex, and this review seeks to rationalize and simplify the approach to fungal diseases of the nose and paranasal sinuses. These conditions may be discussed under two major headings: non-invasive disease (localized fungal colonization, fungal ball and allergic fungal rhinosinusitis) and invasive disease (acute invasive rhinosinusitis, chronic invasive rhinosinusitis and granulomatous invasive rhinosinusitis). A diagnosis of fungal rhinosinusitis is established by combining findings on history, clinical examination, laboratory testing, imaging and histopathology. The immunocompetence of the patient is of great importance, as invasive fungal rhinosinusitis is uncommon in immunocompetent patients. With the exception of localized fungal colonization, treatment of all forms of fungal rhinosinusitis relies heavily on surgery. Systemic antifungal agents are a fundamental component in the treatment of invasive forms, but are not indicated for the treatment of the non-invasive forms. Antifungal drugs may have a role as adjuvant therapy in allergic fungal rhinosinusitis, but evidence is poor to support recommendations. Randomized controlled trials need to be performed to confirm the benefit of immunotherapy in the treatment of allergic fungal rhinosinusitis. In this article, we will summarize the current literature, addressing the controversies regarding the diagnosis and management of fungal rhinosinusitis, and focussing on those aspects which are important for clinical immunologists and allergists.

Allergenic properties of enzymatically hydrolyzed peanut flour extracts.
Peanut flour is a high-protein, low-oil, powdered material prepared from roasted peanut seed. In addition to being a well-established food ingredient, peanut flour is also the active ingredient in peanut oral immunotherapy trials. Enzymatic hydrolysis was evaluated as a processing strategy to generate hydrolysates from peanut flour with reduced allergenicity. These results indicate that hydrolysis of peanut flour reduced IgE binding capacity; however, IgE cross-linking capacity during hydrolysis was retained, thus suggesting such hydrolysates are not hypoallergenic.

Food patch testing for irritable bowel syndrome.
The traditional classification of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) as a functional disorder has been challenged in recent years by evidence of ongoing low-grade gastrointestinal tract inflammation. Inflammation may alter gastrointestinal motility and thus be central to the pathogenesis of IBS. Many foods and food additives are known to cause allergic contact dermatitis. We hypothesize that allergenic foods and food additives may elicit a similar allergic reaction in the gastrointestinal tract, giving rise to symptoms suggestive of IBS. This study sought to determine whether skin patch testing to a panel of foods and food additives may identify food allergens that may be responsible for symptoms of IBS. Skin patch testing to common allergenic foods and food additives were performed on individuals with a history of or symptoms suggestive of IBS. Patch test-guided avoidance diets were utilised to determine whether avoidance alleviates IBS symptoms. Thirty of the 51 study participants showed at least 1 doubtful or positive patch test result. Fourteen of the participants reported symptomatic improvement, ranging from slight to great, upon avoidance of the foods/food additives to which they reacted. The limitations of the study: Double-blind study design, inclusion of only patients with active IBS, larger sample size, more balanced gender distribution, testing of more foods/food additives, and longer duration of and more precise quantification of response to dietary avoidance are suggested for future studies. The authors conclude that allergic contact enteritis to ingested foods, food additives, or both may contribute to IBS symptoms. Patch testing may be useful in identifying the causative foods

The analysis of specific antigenicity of food allergens families
Classification of food allergens based on protein’s structure and function contributes to the study of the relationship between bioinformatics and potential allergenicity of allergens, as well as the evaluation of novel proteins’ allergenicity. Some researchers were focused on classification within plant or animal food allergens respectively, but there is not any classification of the whole food allergens. In this article, we classified all the food allergens included in the SDAP into different food allergen families and analyzed their specific antigenicity. According to allergen families in AllFam Database, food allergens taken from SDAP (Structural Database of Allergenic Proteins) are classified into different allergen families. Moreover, Protean of DNAStar was applied to analyzing the antigenicity of food allergens. Sixty percent of food allergens are included in the five allergen families, Prolamin superfamily, EF hand domain, Cupin superfamily Profilin and Bet v 1-related protein. Besides, three other cross-food allergen families are found: EF hand domain, Serpin serine protease inhibitor and Triosephosphate isomerase, which include food allergens from both plants and animals. Common characters of food allergens from the same family were easy to find. For instance, they share the same specific peptides and potential T lymphocyte antigen epitope. This classification and characterization of allergen antigenicity in different food allergen families provide foundation for studying the structure and function of novel food allergens as well as the data for the assessment of potential allergenicity.

Research into sensitization and allergies to latex: results after 10 years of the use of powder-free latex gloves.
After the study in 1998, the introduction of sterile, powder-free latex gloves very likely led to a decline in the prevalence of sensitization and allergy to natural latex in 2009.

Manifestations of food protein induced gastrointestinal allergies presenting to a single tertiary paediatric gastroenterology unit.
This retrospective analysis was performed at Great Ormond Street Children?s Hospital. Medical notes were included from 2002 ? 2009 where a documented medical diagnosis of food protein induced gastrointestinal allergies was confirmed by an elimination diet with resolution of symptoms, followed by reintroduction with reoccurrence of symptoms. Data from 437 children were analysis. The majority (67.7%) of children had an atopic family history and 41.5% had atopic dermatitis at an early age. The most common diagnosis included, non-IgE mediated gastrointestinal food allergy (n = 189) and allergic enterocolitis (n = 154) with symptoms of: vomiting (57.8%), back-arching and screaming (50%), constipation (44.6%), diarrhoea (81%), abdominal pain (89.9%), abdominal bloating (73.9%) and rectal bleeding (38.5%). The majority of patients were initially managed with a milk, soy, egg and wheat free diet (41.7%). At a median age of 8 years, 24.7% of children still required to eliminate some of the food allergens.
