BACKGROUND: Some patients with severe asthma also have fungal sensitization and are considered to have severe asthma with fungal sensitization. However, there is limited information on the clinical features of SAFS. OBJECTIVE: To investigate the clinical characteristics of severe asthma with fungal sensitization. METHODS: The present study enrolled 124 patients with severe asthma. We evaluated clinical aspects, such as various serum cytokines, fractional exhaled nitric oxide, pulmonary function, and serum immunoglobulin E (IgE)...

BACKGROUND: Patients reporting drug allergy are treated with second-line therapies, with possible negative clinical and health consequences. OBJECTIVE: To assess the prevalence of self-reported drug allergy. METHODS: We performed a systematic review of observational studies assessing the prevalence of self-reported drug allergy. We searched 4 electronic databases. From selected studies, we extracted data on self-reported drug allergy prevalence, study design, participants' demographic characteristics, reported clinical manifestations, and suspected culprit drugs...

BACKGROUND: Immunoglobulin E (IgE) deficiency (<2.5 kU/L) has unclear clinical significance. Very little is known about the clinical characteristics of IgE deficiency in patients with Common Variable Immunodeficiency (CVID). OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the clinical and laboratory differences between patients with IgE deficiency and those with non-IgE deficiency with and without CVID diagnosis. METHODS: This is a retrospective study of adult patients who had total serum IgE levels measured at our facility from 2010 through 2015...

BACKGROUND: Vitamin D insufficiency might be associated with biased T-cell responses resulting in inflammatory conditions such as atopy and asthma. Little is known about the role of vitamin D in low-grade systemic inflammation and airway hyperresponsiveness (AHR) in young children. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate whether vitamin D insufficiency and increased serum high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) are linked to AHR in symptomatic infants. METHODS: Seventy-nine infants with recurrent or persistent lower respiratory tract symptoms underwent comprehensive lung function testing and a bronchial methacholine challenge test...

BACKGROUND: Air pollution exposure in childhood is associated with greater incidence and exacerbation of asthma, particularly in children whose parents report high levels of psychological stress. However, this interaction has not been completely elucidated in pregnancy. OBJECTIVE: To examine whether the association between prenatal exposure to particulate matter no larger than 2.5 μm in diameter (PM2.5) and wheeze in children is modified by prenatal stress. METHODS: Mexican women were recruited during pregnancy (N = 552)...

BACKGROUND: In a recent preliminary study, eosinophil and basophil counts were calculated in chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps (CRSwNP) using conventional histologic and immunohistochemical methods. The tissue eosinophil-to-basophil ratio differed in the CRSwNP endotypes considered. OBJECTIVE: To compare the blood eosinophil-to-basophil ratio (bEBR) in a large series of patients with CRSwNP with that in a control group of consecutive rhinological patients with no evidence of nasal, paranasal, or systemic inflammatory disorders...

BACKGROUND: Most patients with a history of penicillin allergy can tolerate penicillin. Skin testing can identify tolerant patients, but not all known allergenic determinants are commercially available. Protocols exist that use only available reagents, but the sensitivity and safety of these protocols, particularly for hospitalized patients, are controversial. OBJECTIVE: To determine the number of hospitalized patients referred for penicillin skin testing who showed unique positivity to the minor determinants penicilloate and penilloate...

BACKGROUND: In children with eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) foods are the most common disease triggers, but environmental allergens are also suspected culprits. OBJECTIVE: To determine the effects of environmental allergen sensitization on response to treatment in children with EoE in the southeastern United States. METHODS: Patients 2 to 18 years old who were referred to the Arkansas Children's Hospital Eosinophilic Gastrointestinal Disorders Clinic from January 2012 to January 2016 were enrolled in a prospective, longitudinal cohort study with collection of demographics, clinical symptoms, medical history, allergy sensitization profiles, and response to treatment over time...

BACKGROUND: Epinephrine is the first-line treatment for anaphylaxis but may be underused by patients and medical personnel. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate factors associated with anaphylaxis management before arrival at the emergency department (ED) or urgent care center (UCC). METHODS: We performed a retrospective review of electronic medical records for all patients aged 0 to 25 years presenting with anaphylaxis to the ED or UCC at a pediatric academic referral center during 2009 to 2013...

BACKGROUND: Previous studies have found increased rates of musculoskeletal problems in adults with allergic disease, but whether this association holds true for children is unknown. OBJECTIVE: To investigate the association of bone, joint, and muscle problems in children with a history of allergic disease. METHODS: Data were obtained from the 2007 Child and Adolescent Health Measurement Initiative. Univariable and multivariable logistic regression models accounting for the sampling design were used to evaluate associations of bone, joint, and muscle problems with allergic diseases, such as asthma, hay fever, food allergies, and eczema...
