REVIEW
Stephanie A Leonard
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The purpose of this review is to update what is currently known about the major non-IgE-mediated food allergies: food protein-induced enterocolitis syndrome (FPIES), food protein-induced allergic proctocolitis (FPIAP), and food protein-induced enteropathy (FPE). These conditions are similar in that symptoms are regulated to the gastrointestinal tract; therefore understanding their specific features is important for diagnosis and management. RECENT FINDINGS: The most progress has been made in understanding FPIES with several recent large cohorts being described...

REVIEW
Philipp R Esser, Stefan F Martin
Contact sensitization is the initial process involved in the development of an allergic reaction to xenobiotic environmental substances. Here, we briefly describe the differences between irritant and allergic contact dermatitis. Then, we highlight the essential steps involved in the development of an ACD reaction, i.e., the protein binding of haptens, genetic factors influencing the penetration of sensitizers into the skin, the different mechanisms driving the initial development of an inflammatory cytokine micromilieu enabling the full maturation of dendritic cells, the role of pre- and pro-haptens, antigen presentation and T cell activation via MHC and CD1 molecules, dendritic cell (DC) migration, and potential LC contribution as well as the different T cell subsets involved in ACD...

REVIEW
Jae Seok Jeong, So Ri Kim, Seong Ho Cho, Yong Chul Lee
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: In this review, we will integrate recent knowledge on endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress and allergy, thereby highlighting the therapeutic potential of ER stress in the context of precision medicine for allergic diseases. RECENT FINDINGS: Emerging evidence suggests that allergic diseases are very heterogeneous having numerous endotypes. This leads to the new era of modern medicine, which assumes that a particular endotype-driven therapy, called precision medicine, would be more efficacious in a specific group of patients rather than in all patients...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Atopic dermatitis (AD) is a chronic, relapsing inflammatory skin disorder that is a major public health burden worldwide. AD lesions are often colonized by Staphylococcus aureus and Staphylococcus epidermidis. An important aspect of Staphylococcus spp. is their propensity to form biofilms, adhesive surface-attached colonies that become highly resistant to antibiotics and immune responses, and recent studies have found that clinical isolates colonizing AD skin are often biofilm-positive...

REVIEW
Nicholas Klaiber, Santhosh Kumar, Anne-Marie Irani
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: In this review, we examine the current understanding of the pathogenesis, clinical presentations, diagnostic tools, and treatment options of pediatric mastocytosis as well as the natural history of the disease. RECENT FINDINGS: We discuss the emerging concept of mast cell activation syndrome. Mastocytosis in children presents most commonly as isolated cutaneous lesions and is a relatively rare occurrence with excellent prognosis and spontaneous regression often occurring by adolescence...

REVIEW

Common variable immunodeficiency (CVID) is the most prevalent symptomatic primary immune deficiency. With widespread use of immunoglobulin replacement therapy, non-infectious complications, such as autoimmunity, chronic intestinal inflammation, and lung disease, have replaced infections as the major cause of morbidity and mortality in this immune deficiency. The pathogenic mechanisms that underlie the development of these complications in CVID are not known; however, there have been numerous associated laboratory findings...

#7
REVIEW
María Belén Almejun, Mercedes Borge
Common variable immunodeficiency (CVID) is a heterogeneous disorder characterized by impaired antibody production and recurrent infections. In the last 20 years, several groups have reported that B cells from CVID patients have an impaired somatic hypermutation (SHM). The reported frequency of this defect among CVID patient cohorts is highly variable and so is the methodology used to evaluate this process. Interestingly, the low level of SHM on B cells from CVID patients has been correlated with the presence of infectious and non-infectious complications...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Vaccination against influenza in patients with primary antibody deficiency is recommended. Common variable immunodeficiency (CVID) is the most frequent and clinically relevant antibody deficiency disease and is by definition characterized by an impaired vaccination response. The purpose of this review is to present the current knowledge of humoral and cellular vaccine response to influenza in CVID patients. RECENT FINDINGS: Studies conducted in CVID patients demonstrated an impaired humoral response upon influenza vaccination...

REVIEW
Phillip W Clapp, Ilona Jaspers
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Vaping is gaining popularity in the USA, particularly among teens and young adults. While e-cigs are commonly represented as safer alternatives to tobacco cigarettes, little is known regarding the health effects of their short- or long-term use, especially in individuals with pre-existing respiratory diseases such as asthma. Flavored e-cig liquids (e-liquids) and e-cig aerosols contain airway irritants and toxicants that have been implicated in the pathogenesis and worsening of lung diseases...

REVIEW

Heparin is widely used as an anticoagulant. Currently, this macromolecule is at the forefront in the field of glycobiology because of the recognition of its therapeutic potential in a wide range of medical conditions including inflammation. Heparin is composed of anticoagulant and non-anticoagulant molecules. A large body of evidence suggests that the anti-inflammatory activities of heparin are attributed to its non-anticoagulant molecules and are therefore independent to its anticoagulant effect. However, the potential therapeutic use of heparin in inflammatory conditions is hindered by the presence of anticoagulant molecules causing the risk of bleeding...

REVIEW
Anna S Tocheva, Adam Mor
To limit excessive T cell-mediated inflammatory responses, the immune system has a milieu of inhibitory receptors, called immune checkpoints. Cancer cells have evolved to seize those inhibitory pathways and to prevent T cell-mediated killing of tumor cells. Therefore, immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICI) consisting of blocking antibodies against these receptors present an exciting avenue in the fight against cancer. The last decade has seen the implementation of ICI against a variety of cancer indications that have improved the overall anti-tumor responses and patient survival...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Asthma is a heterogeneous disease characterized by multiple phenotypes. Treatment of patients with severe disease can be challenging. Predictive biomarkers are measurable characteristics that reflect the underlying pathophysiology of asthma and can identify patients that are likely to respond to a given therapy. This review discusses current knowledge regarding predictive biomarkers in asthma. RECENT FINDINGS: Recent trials evaluating biologic therapies targeting IgE, IL-5, IL-13, and IL-4 have utilized predictive biomarkers to identify patients who might benefit from treatment...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: In this article, we review current understanding of the epidemiology and etiology of disparities in asthma. We also highlight current and emerging literature on solutions to tackle disparities while underscoring gaps and pressing future directions. RECENT FINDINGS: Tailored, multicomponent approaches including the home, school, and clinician-based interventions show great promise. Managing asthma in disadvantaged populations can be challenging as they tend to have disproportionately worse outcomes due to a multitude of factors...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Wheezing in infancy is a common presentation with many potential causes. In writing this review, we sought to summarize the newest recommendations and testing available for the more common etiologies of wheezing. RECENT FINDINGS: Regarding the diagnosis of asthma, the modified asthma predictive index has recently been established as a useful predictive tool. Non-breath held multidetector CT with 3D volume rendering airway images is also a newer helpful diagnostic tool for tracheomalacia due to ease of use and its 100% positive predictive value...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The adaptive immune response orchestrated by type 2 T helper (Th2) lymphocytes, strictly cooperates with the innate response of group 2 innate lymphoid cells (ILC2), in the protection from helminths infection, as well as in the pathogenesis of allergic disease. The aim of this review is to explore the pathogenic role of ILC2 in different type 2-mediated disorders. RECENT FINDINGS: Recent studies have shown that epithelial cell-derived cytokines and their responding cells, ILC2, play a pathogenic role in bronchial asthma, chronic rhinosinusitis, and atopic dermatitis...

REVIEW

Epidemiological studies from Sub-Saharan Africa indicate that allergies are on the rise in this region especially in urban compared to rural areas. This increase has been linked to improved hygiene, lifestyle changes, and lower exposure to pathogens in childhood. Reduced exposure to parasitic worm (helminth) infections and allergy outcomes has been the focus of a number of population studies over the years. Paradoxically, there are parallels in the immune responses to helminths and to allergies. Both conditions are associated with elevated levels of immunoglobulin E, high numbers of T helper 2 cells, eosinophils, and mast cells...
