Diagnosing allergic sensitizations in the third millennium: why clinicians should know allergen molecule structures.
Diagnostic tests to detect allergic sensitization were introduced at the end of the nineteenth century but only in the late 1990s did the advent of molecular allergology revolutionize the approach to the allergic patient. Personalized Medicine, a medical procedure that separates patients into different groups with different medical decisions, practices and interventions has sanctioned this change. In fact, in the last few years molecular allergology and the observation that not every patient has the same allergic profile, even when allergic to the same allergenic source, has originated the concept 'one size does not fit all'. This new approach requires the identification of still unknown allergens, but also the more detailed investigation of those already known. In depth studies of the structure-function relationships in allergenic molecules can reveal the structural determinants involved in the IgE-binding. Then, the knowledge of the epitope profile of each allergen and of the environmental/experimental conditions affecting the exposure of IgE-binding epitopes can provide important contributions to the understanding of cross-reaction processes and to the improvement of diagnosis, immunotherapy and the overall patient treatment. The evolution of diagnostic systems cannot ignore these new needs in this field.

Hidden causes of anaphylaxis.
This study aimed to review important hidden causes of anaphylaxis in ingestants, non-ingestants, and uncommon settings. Multiple new and elusive causes of anaphylaxis have been described over the past 35 years. Further research is required to identify the epidemiology, pathophysiology, and clinical impact of these hidden causes. Although these culprits should be considered in the appropriate clinical scenarios, many remain exceedingly rare.

Component resolved diagnostics for hymenoptera venom allergy.
We review recent studies on the use of component-resolved diagnostics in the field of Hymenoptera venom allergy (HVA) and discuss its benefits and limitations. Component resolution in HVA has moved from single molecules to panels of allergens. Detection of specific immunoglobulin E (sigE) to marker and cross-reactive venom allergens has been reported to facilitate the discrimination between primary sensitization and cross-reactivity and thus, to provide a better rationale for prescribing venom immunotherapy (VIT), particularly in patients sensitized to both honeybee and vespid venom. Characterization of IgE reactivity to a broad panel of venom allergens has allowed the identification of different sensitization profiles that in honeybee venom allergy were associated with increased risks for side effects or treatment failure of VIT. In contrast, component resolution so far has failed to provide reliable markers for the discrimination of sensitizations to venoms of different members of Vespidae.

Designing predictive models for beta-lactam allergy using the drug allergy and hypersensitivity database.
The objectives of this study was to design predictive models for the diagnosis of beta-lactam allergy, based on the clinical history of patients with suspicions of allergic reactions to beta-lactams. The study concludes that two different independent methods using clinical history predictors were unable to accurately predict beta-lactam allergy and replace a conventional allergy evaluation for suspected beta-lactam allergy

Low food allergy prevalence despite delayed introduction of allergenic foods
There is mounting evidence that early introduction of allergenic food decreases the risk of food allergy development, especially in high-risk infants with eczema. However, there is a lack of data to suggest whether this association holds true in Asian populations. This study concludes that food allergy rates in Singapore are low despite delayed introduction of allergenic foods. Early introduction of allergenic foods may thus not be necessary in populations in which overall food allergy prevalence is low, and thus infant feeding recommendations should be carefully tailored to individual populations

Methods in Allergy/Immunology: Food Challenges.
Since there is no in vitro test, which can accurately predict the clinical relevance of a sensitization to food, the oral food challenge still remains the most reliable procedure to confirm or exclude food allergy and to assess the development of tolerance in children with potentially transient food allergies such as to cow's milk, hen's egg, wheat or soy. Although in the last few years component-resolved diagnostic has improved the food allergy diagnostics, especially in peanut and tree nut allergy, the majority of patients still need to undergo oral food challenge. The following paper will describe in whom and how to perform an oral food challenge as well as its interpretation of the results with a focus on suspected IgE-mediated food allergy

Prevalence of clinic-defined food allergy in early adolescence: The SchoolNuts study.
Approximately 1 in 20 10- to 14-year-old school students in Melbourne has current food allergy. This high prevalence suggests that the previously reported rise in food-induced anaphylaxis in this age group may reflect an increasing prevalence of food allergy rather than simply increased reporting of anaphylaxis

Specific allergen profiles of peanut foods and of diagnostic or therapeutic allergenic products.
'Generic' immunoassays for peanut cannot discriminate between allergen levels in peanut derived food products or therapeutics. Clinical trials of oral immunotherapy are strengthened by using standardized peanut preparations, with defined doses of major allergens. This paper describes measurement of Ara h 1, Ara h 2 and Ara h 6 in peanut foods and in peanut flour extracts used for allergy diagnosis and oral immunotherapy. Roasted peanut butters contained 991-21,406mug/g Ara h 1 and exceeded Ara h 2 and Ara h 6 levels by 2-4 fold. Similarly, NIST SRM 2387 contained 11,275mug/g Ara h 1; 2,522mug/g Ara h 2 and 2,036mug/g Ara h 6. In contrast, peanut flours contained 787-14,631mug/g Ara h 2 and exceeded Ara h 1 levels by 2-20 fold. Flour extracts used for oral immunotherapy contained 394-505mug/ml Ara h 1, 1,187-5,270mug/ml Ara h 2 and 1,104-8,092mug/ml Ara h 6. In most cases, specific peanut allergens were not detected in tree nut butters or peanut oils. The results show marked differences in specific peanut allergen profiles in peanut butter, flour and peanut preparations for clinical use. Roasting may increase Ara h 1 levels in peanut butter. Variability in allergen levels could affect the outcome of clinical trials of peanut oral immunotherapy, especially with respect to Ara h 1. Specific allergen measurements will improve standardization and provide accurate dosing of peanut preparations that are being used for oral immunotherapy

The prevalence of food allergy and other allergic diseases in early childhood in a population-based study: HealthNuts age 4-year follow-up.
Although the prevalence of food allergy decreased between age 1 year and age 4 years in this population-based cohort, the prevalence of any allergic disease among 4-year-old children in Melbourne, Australia, is remarkably high. The prevalence of challenge-confirmed food allergy at age 1 and 4 years was 11.0% and 3.8%, respectively. At age 4 years, peanut allergy prevalence was 1.9% (95% CI, 1.6% to 2.3%), egg allergy was 1.2% (95% CI, 0.9% to 1.6%), and sesame allergy was 0.4% (95% CI, 0.3% to 0.6%). Late-onset peanut allergy at age 4 years was rare (0.2%).

Red meat allergy induced by tick bites: A Norwegian case report.
Food allergies, especially delayed hypersensitivity reactions, are often challenging for both patients and clinicians. Here, we report the case of a 64-year-old man who had allergic reactions six hours after eating a meal containing red meat. He reported that he had several tick bites in months before the reaction. High serum specific IgE levels of alpha-gal confirmed the diagnosis of alpha-gal allergic reaction with delayed onset after red meat ingestion caused by tick bite

Phleum pratense molecular pattern across Italy.
Phleum pratense (Timothy grass) is the most frequent cause of grass allergy in Europe. The present study was aimed to investigate the possible relationships between Graminaceae pollen data and the pattern of IgE reactivity to different allergen components across Italy. Pollen data, including duration and quantity, were recorded over a 10-year period in 24 Italian centres located along the Italian peninsula. Phl p molecular patterns (Phl p 1, 5, 7, 12) were evaluated in 4 different Italian geographical areas. There were significant differences about pollen count and sensitization prevalence across Italy. Different molecular patterns were defined considering the different Italian locations.

Meat allergy associated with alpha-Gal - Closing diagnostic gaps by anti-alpha-Gal IgE immune profiling.
Glycoproteins and glycolipids of some mammalian species contain the disaccharide galactosyl-alpha-(1,3)-galactose (alpha-Gal). It is known that alpha-Gal is immunogenic in humans and causes glycan-specific IgG and also IgE responses with clinical relevance. alpha-Gal is part of the IgE-reactive monoclonal therapeutic antibody cetuximab and is associated with delayed anaphylaxis to red meat. In this study, different alpha-Gal-containing analytes are examined in singleplex and multiplex assays to resolve individual sensitization patterns with IgE against alpha-Gal.

Three serum groups, alpha-Gal-associated meat allergy (MA) patients, idiopathic anaphylaxis (IA) patients with suspected meat allergy and non-meat-allergic healthy control individuals (HC), were analyzed via singleplex allergy diagnostics and a newly established immunoblot diagnostic system. The new dot blot detection system resolved individual IgE sensitization profiles for alpha-Gal-containing analytes cetuximab, bovine thyroglobulin and HSA-conjugated alpha-Gal.

Singleplex allergy diagnostics using the alpha-Gal-analytes cetuximab and bovine thyroglobulin confirms the history of meat allergy patients in 91% and 88% of the cases, respectively. A novel dot-blot-based assay system for the detection of IgE against alpha-Gal reveals individual IgE sensitization profiles for alpha-Gal-containing analytes. An alpha-Gal-associated IgE cross-reactivity profile (IgE against cetuximab, bovine thyroglobulin and HSA-alpha-Gal) was identified, which is associated with meat allergy.

Detection of individual sensitization patterns with different alpha-Gal-containing analytes provides the basis for an individual allergy diagnosis for alpha-Gal sensitized patients. Higher amounts of alpha-Gal in pork and beef innards compared to muscle meat as indicated by a higher staining intensity are a plausible explanation for the difference in allergic symptom severity.

Usefulness of in vivo and in vitro diagnostic tests in the diagnosis of hypersensitivity reactions to quinolones and in the evaluation of cross-reactivity
Reports evaluating diagnosis and cross reactivity of quinolone hypersensitivity have revealed contradictory results. Furthermore, there are no reports investigating the cross-reactivity between gemifloxacin (GFX) and the others. We aimed to detect the usefulness of diagnostic tests of hypersensitivity reactions to quinolones and to evaluate the cross reactivity between different quinolones including the latest quinolone GFX. We studied 54 patients (mean age 42.31+/-10.39 years; 47 female) with 57 hypersensitivity reactions due to different quinolones and 10 nonatopic quinolone tolerable control subjects. A detailed clinical history, skin test (ST), and single-blind placebo-controlled drug provocation test (SBPCDPT), as well as basophil activation test (BAT) and lymphocyte transformation test (LTT) were performed with the culprit and alternative quinolones including ciprofloxacin (CFX), moxifloxacin (MFX), levofloxacin (LFX), ofloxacin (OFX), and GFX.

The majority (75.9%) of the patients reported immediate type reactions to various quinolones. The most common culprit drug was CFX (52.6%) and the most common reaction type was urticaria (26.3%). A quarter of the patients (24.1%) reacted to SBPCDPTs, although their STs were negative; while false ST positivity was 3.5% and ST/SBPCDPTs concordance was only 1.8%. Both BAT and LTT were not found useful in quinolone hypersensitivity. Cross-reactivity was primarily observed between LFX and OFX (50.0%), whereas it was the least between MFX and the others, and in GFX hypersensitive patients the degree of cross-reactivity to the other quinolones was 16.7%. These results suggest that STs, BAT, and LTT are not supportive in the diagnosis of a hypersensitivity reaction to quinolone as well as in the prediction of cross-reactivity. Drug provocation tests (DPTs) are necessary to identify both culprit and alternative quinolones

In vitro diagnostic testing for antibiotic allergy.
Allergy to antibiotics is an important worldwide problem, with an estimated prevalence of up to 10% of the population. Reaction patterns for different antibiotics have changed in accordance with consumption trends. Most of the allergic reactions to antibiotics have been reported for betalactams, followed by quinolones and macrolides and, to a lesser extent, to others, such as metronidazole clindamycin and sulfonamides. The diagnostic procedure includes a detailed clinical history, which is not always possible and can be unreliable. This is usually followed by in vivo, skin, and drug provocation tests. These are not recommended for severe, potentially lifethreaten reactions or for drugs that are known to produce a high rate of false positive results. Given the limitations of in vivo tests, in vitro test can be helpful for diagnosis, despite having suboptimal sensitivity. The most highly employed techniques for diagnosing immediate reactions to antibiotics are immunoassays and basophil activation tests, while lymphocyte transformation tests are more commonly used to diagnose non-immediate reactions. In this review, we describe different in vitro techniques employed to diagnose antibiotic allergy
