BACKGROUND: The world's most catastrophic and deadly thunderstorm asthma epidemic struck Melbourne, Australia, on November 21st 2016. OBJECTIVE: Among thunderstorm-affected patients presenting to emergency rooms (ERs), we investigated risk factors predicting severe attacks requiring admission to hospital. METHODS: Thunderstorm-affected patients were identified from ER records at the eight major Melbourne health services and interviewed by telephone...

Thunderstorm asthma (TA) refers to the sudden increase of acute bronchospasm following a storm during pollen seasons, necessitating primary care facilities by general practioner (GP) visits, Emergency Department (ED) admissions and hospitalizations, sometimes also endotracheal intubation for severe asthma and near fatal asthma (NFA). In the scientific literature, there are descriptions of epidemics of TA in various geographical areas of the world (1-8) and climate change scenarios indicate there will be an increase in the intensity and frequency of heavy rainfall episodes, including thunderstorms, in all the world...

BACKGROUND: Microbes in the airway has been shown to be associated with the pathogenesis of asthma. The upper airway microbiome influences the dysbiosis of the lower airway microbiome. However, to date, the influence of upper airway microbiome for adult and elderly asthma has not been fully elucidated. Here, the metagenome of upper airway microbiome of young adults and elderly was analyzed to identify their association with adult asthma. METHODS: Nasopharyngeal swabs were collected from young-adult and elderly asthma patients and non-asthmatic subjects...

BACKGROUND: This randomised, double-blind trial was conducted to determine the optimal dose for clinical efficacy of the SQ tree SLIT-tablet. An environmental exposure chamber (EEC) was used to reduce variability of allergen exposure and allow investigation of symptom reduction towards different species from the birch homologous group in separate EEC sessions. METHODS: Eligible subjects (N=219) were randomised to receive treatment with placebo or the SQ tree SLIT-tablet (2, 7, or 12 DU) for 24 weeks...

BACKGROUND: There is limited data on feasibility, efficacy and safety of high-dose oral immunotherapy (OIT) in children highly allergic to peanuts. OBJECTIVE: In children highly allergic to peanut, we primarily aimed to determine the feasibility of reaching the maximum maintenance dose (MMD) of 5000 mg peanut protein or alternatively, a lower individual maintenance dose (IMD), by OIT up-dosing. Secondarily, we aimed to identify adverse events (AEs), and determine factors associated with reaching a maintenance dose...

BACKGROUND: Allergic asthma is characterized by chronic inflammation and remodelling of the airways, associated with dysregulated type 2 immune responses and allergen-specific IgE. T follicular helper cells (TFH ) are crucial in T-dependent B cell responses and have been implicated in allergic airway disease (AAD). TFH , unlike other CD4+ T cells are uniquely reliant on continuous ICOS signalling to maintain their phenotype after T cell priming, therefore disrupting this signal can impair TFH responses...

NSAID-exacerbated respiratory disease (N-ERD) is a chronic eosinophilic, inflammatory disorder of the respiratory tract occurring in patients with asthma and /or chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps (CRSwNP), symptoms of which are exacerbated by NSAIDs, including aspirin. Despite some progress in understanding of the pathophysiology of the syndrome, which affects 1/10 of patients with asthma and rhinosinusitis, it remains a diagnostic and therapeutic challenge. In order to provide evidence-based recommendations for the diagnosis and management of N-ERD a panel of international experts was called by the EAACI Asthma Section...

BACKGROUND: Real-world evidence is sparse on the benefits of allergen immunotherapy [AIT; subcutaneous/sublingual immunotherapy (SCIT/SLIT)], the only disease-modifying intervention for allergic rhinitis (AR) with long-term efficacy. This real-life study evaluated the effect of 6 AITs (native pollen SLIT/SCIT, 4 allergoid SCITs) versus symptomatic medication use, on AR symptoms and asthma symptoms/onset, in patients with birch pollen-associated AR and/or asthma. METHODS: In this retrospective cohort analysis of a German longitudinal prescription database, AIT patients received ≥2 successive seasonal treatment cycles; non-AIT patients had ≥3 AR prescriptions in 3 seasons or previous month...

BACKGROUND: The diagnosis and phenotyping of paediatric asthma is particularly complex due to the lack of currently available sensitive diagnostic tools. This often results in uncertainties associated with inhaled steroid therapy prescription. Therefore, this study aimed to investigate if volatile organic compounds measured in exhaled breath condensate can be used as biomarkers for asthma diagnosis in the paediatric population. METHODS: A total of 64 participants, aged 6 to 18 years, were recruited on a random basis during visits to an outpatient allergy clinic and to a juvenile football team training session...

BACKGROUND: Artemisia pollen allergy is a major cause of asthma in Northern China. Possible associations between IgE responses to Artemisia allergen components and clinical phenotypes have not yet been evaluated. This study was to establish sensitization patterns of four Artemisia allergens and possible associations with demographic characteristics and clinical phenotypes in three areas of China. METHODS: Two hundred and forty patients allergic to Artemisia pollen were examined, 178 from Shanxi and 30 from Shandong Provinces in Northern China, and 32 from Yunnan Province in Southwestern China...

BACKGROUND: Use of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) has been proposed to treat various autoimmune diseases. However, effective strategies for treating atopic dermatitis (AD) are still lacking, and the mechanisms underlying stem cell therapy remain largely unknown. In this study, we sought to explore potential clinical application of superoxide dismutase 3-transduced MSCs (SOD3-MSCs) to experimental AD-like skin inflammation in in-vitro and in-vivo, and its underlying anti-inflammatory mechanisms...

Food allergies reduce the quality of life of affected individuals and may result in anaphylaxis or even death. Allergen-specific immunotherapy (AIT) is based on vaccination with the disease-causing allergens. However, the administration of food allergens can produce severe side effects. Engineered food allergens with altered IgE epitopes hold the promise to improve the safety and efficacy of AIT. Food allergens contain linear and conformational IgE epitopes.

BACKGROUND: Wheezing illnesses among young children are common, and are a risk factor for asthma. However, determinants of childhood bronchial reactivity, a key feature of asthma, are largely unknown. Aim of this study was to determine how patient characteristics during the first severe virus-induced wheezing episode are associated with pulmonary function at pre-school age. METHODS: Study consisted of 76 children presenting with their first wheezing episode at the ages of 3 to 23 months...
