CONTEXT: The intravenous (IV) N-acetylcysteine (NAC) regimen used worldwide in paracetamol overdose is complex with three separate weight-based doses and is associated with a high incidence of adverse events including non-allergic anaphylactoid reactions (NAARs). In 2012, Denmark adopted the two-bag IV NAC regimen which combined the first two infusions of the three-bag regimen and kept the third infusion unchanged. We compared the safety and efficacy of the two-bag IV NAC regimen with the traditional Danish three-bag regimen...

BACKGROUND: Asthma is a chronic respiratory condition, with airway hyperresponsiveness (AHR) and inflammation as hallmarks. The hypothesis that the substantially increased expression of arginase 1 in activated macrophages limits the availability of L-arginine for nitric oxide synthesis, and thus increases AHR in lungs of mice with experimentally induced allergic asthma was recently refuted by several studies. In the present study, we tested the hypothesis that, instead, a low circulating concentration of arginine aggravates AHR in the same murine asthma model...

Filaggrin (FLG) loss of function (LOF) variants are a major risk factor for the common inflammatory skin disease, atopic dermatitis (AD), and are often population-specific. African American (AA) children are disproportionately affected with AD, often later developing asthma and/or allergic rhinitis and comprise an atopy health disparity group for which the role of FLG LOF is not well known. Discovery of FLG LOF using exome sequencing is challenging given the known difficulties for accurate short-read alignment to FLG's high homology repeat variation...

BACKGROUND: Interleukin-31 (IL-31), a novel T helper type 2 effector cytokine, is known to have an important effect on the pathogenesis of allergic disease and tumors. However, the impact of IL-31 on human lung cancer remains unclear. METHODS: This study explored the role of IL-31 polymorphisms in lung cancer and sought to characterize how IL-31 polymorphisms correlate with lung cancer tumorigenesis and patient survival rates. Using a single-nucleotide polymorphism genotype assay, we examined the expression of two IL-31 polymorphisms (rs7977932 and rs4758680) in samples from 302 lung cancer patients and 493 control cases...

BACKGROUND: The use of allergen immunotherapy (AIT) for allergic rhinitis and its clinical efficacy in clinical trials depends on the effective determination of pollen allergens exposure time-periods. We evaluate pollen data from Germany to examine the new definitions on pollen season and peak pollen period start and end as proposed by the European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (EAACI) in a recently published Position Paper. The aim was to demonstrate the ability of these definitions to mirror symptom loads for grass and birch pollen-induced allergic rhinitis based on real-life data...

BACKGROUND: The generation of IgE-mediated food allergy in humans is silent, and only diagnosed upon manifestation of clinical symptoms. While experimental models have been used to investigate some mechanisms of allergic sensitization, the generation of humoral immunity and memory remain to be elucidated. Here, we defined the evolution of allergen-specific B cell responses during epicutaneous sensitization to foods. METHODS: Wild-type and genetic knockout animals, and drug or antibody strategies for cell depletion and immunoglobulin signaling blockade were used to investigate epicutaneous sensitization and disease progression; we analyzed allergen-specific germinal centers and IgG1+ memory B cells by flow cytometry, evaluated humoral responses and determined clinical reactivity (anaphylaxis)...

INTRODUCTION: Atopic dermatitis (AD) is a common chronic inflammatory skin disease; it requires long-term treatments focused on symptomatic relief. Current first-line treatments include moisturizers and topical corticosteroids. Recently, topical antioxidants have been added to moisturizer formulations to alleviate mild-to-moderate AD. The aim of this review was to evaluate the efficacy and tolerability of furfuryl palmitate, a new antioxidant molecule, and furfuryl derivatives. METHODS: A PubMed/Google Scholar search was conducted using the term "furfuryl palmitate" (and its derivatives, including AR-GG27® ) combined with "skin," "atopic dermatitis," and "atopic eczema...

The skin, together with gut and respiratory tract, harbor a central epithelial barrier function in regards to the interaction of an individual with the environment. Continuing exposure to environmental influences can cause epithelial barrier damages and thus pave the way for atopy development. The latter describes the tendency for allergies, i. e. hypersensitivity of the skin, intestine, and respiratory tract towards per se unharmful environmental substances.Allergies are classified as non-communicable diseases (NCDs)...

Food allergy (FA) impacts 8% of children in the United States, thus it is critical to document allergic reactions in order to assist schools in managing FAs. We aimed to develop an online tool to assist school health personnel in tracking the characteristics of all allergic reactions occurring at schools. The Online School Allergic Reaction Registry (OScARR) was developed and implemented in three Chicago schools during the 2016-2017 school year. All allergic reactions occurring at participating schools were recorded by school nurses during this phase...

BACKGROUND: The most common surgical treatment for paralytic lagophthalmos is the placement of a weight implant in the upper eyelid; however, this technique confers the risks of implant visibility, implant extrusion, and entropion. In this study, we present a new technique of placing platinum weight implants between the levator aponeurosis and inner septum to decrease such complications. METHODS: A total of 37 patients with paralytic lagophthalmos were treated between March 2014 and January 2017 with platinum weight placement (mean follow-up, 520...

BACKGROUND: Beta-lactam allergy is overdiagnosed. Diagnosis of penicillin allergy has been associated with a greater use of hospital resources and an increased risk of antibiotic-resistant infections, although this issue remains poorly studied in children. We aimed to compare patient characteristics and use of hospital resources in hospitalized children with and without a record of penicillin allergy. METHODS: We identified all hospitalizations in children labelled as being allergic to penicillin in a database containing all hospitalizations in Portuguese public hospitals between 2000 and 2014, and compared these with a similar number of age-, sex-, and main diagnosis-matched hospitalizations without a penicillin allergy label...

Mosquito bite is usually followed by a local reaction, but severe or systemic reaction may, in rare cases, occur. Allergic reactions to Aedes communis (Ac) may be underestimated due to the lack of reliable diagnostic tools. In this multicenter study, 205 individuals reporting large local reactions to Ac were enrolled and studied for cutaneous or IgE reactivity to Ac, Blattella germanica, Penaeus monodon, and Dermatophagoides pteronyssinus. Extract and molecular IgE reactivity to bees, wasps, hornets, and yellow jacket venoms were also studied in 119 patients with a clinical history of adverse reaction to Hymenoptera...

BACKGROUND: Compositional changes of the early life gut microbiota have been implicated in IgE-associated allergic disease but there is lack of longitudinal studies. We examined gut microbiota development from infancy to school age in relation to onset of IgE-associated allergic diseases. At 8 years of age, we also examined the relationship between gut microbiota and T-cell regulation, estimated as responses to polyclonal T-cell activation. METHODS: Stool samples were collected from 93 children at 4, 6 and 13 months, and 8 years of age...

BACKGROUND: Lipid transfer protein (LTP) is a major fruit allergen. It has, however, recently been revealed that the systemic reaction in peach-allergic patients is related not only to LTP (Pru p 3) but also to gibberellin-regulated protein (Pru p 7). We investigated recombinant Pru p 7 (rPru p 7) for its potential use in worldwide standardization for the diagnosis of peach allergy. METHODS: Natural Pru p 7 (nPru p 7) was purified from peach crude extract using a monoclonal antibody affinity column...
