Occupational disease in bread bakers
Bakers have one of the highest rates of occupational disease. They are exposed to a wide variety of irritants and allergens. Baker’s eczema and asthma are major causes of significant morbidity and loss of income in this population; however, these occupational diseases continue to be under-recognised. This article reviews the most common irritants and allergens associated with baker’s eczema and asthma and interventions to limit exposure.

A case of Henoch-Schonlein purpura triggered by wild bee sting
Henoch-Schönlein purpura (HSP) is defined as a vasculitis with predominantly IgA deposits in the walls of small vessels in the skin, gastrointestinal tract and kidney associated with arthralgias or arthritis. The etiology is unknown, but HSP follows an upper respiratory infection. Infection agents, some medications and some toxins were reported as a trigger for Henoch-Schönlein purpura. We report a 6-year-old boy with typical clinical and pathologic features of this disease that was developed after wild bee sting and our case is an example of insect byte as a trigger agent for Henoch-Schönlein purpura.

Cupressaceae pollinosis and air pollution
Since 1960s, a constant increase in Cupressaceae pollinosis prevalence has been observed. In many regions, the increase in this pollinosis has coincided with particulate and gaseous pollution coming in large part from automobiles. Today, there is a better understanding of the interactions between atmospheric pollutants and the potential role of cypress pollen in the exacerbation of this allergy.

Lichen sclerosus and atopy in boys: coincidence or correlation?
We have demonstrated a significant comorbidity between Lichen sclerosus (LS) and atopic skin diathesis (AD) in boys. AD seems to be a priming precondition for the development of LS in boys.

Sensitizing capacity and allergenicity of enzymatically cross-linked sodium caseinate in comparison to sodium caseinate in a mouse model for cow's milk allergy.
A transglutaminase cross-linked caseinate was designed for use in dairy products to increase the viscosity of food matrices. The difference in structure of cross-linked caseinate might have implications for the risk of developing cow's milk allergy. The sensitizing capacity and the allergenicity (the potency to induce an allergic effector response) of cross-linked sodium caseinate was investigated using a mouse model for cow's milk allergy. Sensitization with cross-linked caseinate did not result in anaphylactic shock symptoms, drop in body temperature or release of serum mMCP-1. A tendency toward decreased casein-specific IgE levels was observed. These results indicate that in already caseinate-sensitized mice, cross-linked caseinate did not provoke more pronounced allergenic reactions compared to sodium caseinate. Reduced sensitization to cross-linked caseinate was observed.
