Food allergy is a common disorder especially in the first years of life. Strict avoidance of the responsible food is the most effective therapeutic measure so far. But this continuous vigilance could be stressful for the patient and family and decreases their quality of life (QOL). This survey was designed to evaluate the impact of IgE-mediated food allergy on parental QOL in Iranian patients and to develop a valid Persian version of "Food Allergy Quality Of Life- Parental Burden (FAQL-PB) questionnaire". 90 patients (28 females, 62 males) and their parents who were referred to the clinic of Allergy in Children's Medical Center, Tehran University of Medical Sciences, Tehran, Iran were enrolled...

BACKGROUND: Fatal food anaphylaxis is rare, but a major concern for people with food allergy and their carers. We evaluated whether community healthcare professionals accurately estimate risk of fatal anaphylaxis for food allergic children, and whether accurate risk estimation is related to competence in recognizing and managing anaphylaxis. METHODS: We enrolled 90 community healthcare professionals in a cross-sectional survey - 30 primary care nurses, 30 school first aiders, 30 community pharmacists...

REVIEW
Angela Tsuang, Julie Wang
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The goal of this review is to characterize food allergy management and anaphylaxis in schools and assess current policies and level of preparedness of schools to recognize and treat anaphylaxis. RECENT FINDINGS: An increasing number of school-aged children have food allergies, and studies show that a significant number of school children with no known history of allergies will experience their first anaphylactic reaction at school. Stock-unassigned epinephrine auto-injectors are recommended in schools but not mandatory in most states, and therefore, epinephrine is not always available...

Children and adolescents in the United States spend many hours in school. Students with chronic health conditions (CHCs) may face lower academic achievement, increased disability, fewer job opportunities, and limited community interactions as they enter adulthood. School health services provide safe and effective management of CHCs, often for students with limited access to health care. A systematic review to assess the role of school health services in addressing CHCs among students in Grades K-12 was completed using primary, peer-reviewed literature published from 2000 to 2015, on selected conditions: asthma, food allergies, diabetes, seizure disorders, and poor oral health...

Context • Allergies are a common affliction, whether they are respiratory, food related, or dermatological. People often resort to continuous use of over-the-counter medications, such as antihistamines, to manage their symptoms. Controversy still remains over testing serum immunoglobulin (Ig) G to diagnose food allergies. Objective • This study intended to examine the benefits of treatment of a pediatric patient with natural supplements and an elimination diet for IgG food allergies. Design • The research team reported a case study...

Atopic diseases are known to be characterized by a T helper (Th) 2-skewed immunity; however, there are few studies addressing the Th1/Th2 immunity at birth related to the development of atopic diseases in early childhood. We investigated 186 children followed up regularly at the clinic for 4 years in a birth cohort study. The Th1-associated CXC chemokine ligand (CXCL)-10, CXCL11, and the Th2-associated CC chemokine ligand (CCL)-17 and CCL22 were quantified in cord blood by multiplex Luminex kits. Specific immunoglobulin E antibodies against food and inhalant allergens were measured at 6 months as well as 1, 1...

EDITORIAL

We read with great interest the report of Lange et al (1) that studied cashew allergic children and the potential predictive value of cashew 2S albumin storage protein (Ana o 3)-specific IgE measurements in determining the need for an oral cashew challenge to prove disease. They report that IgE antibody levels >2 kUA /l to Ana o 3 improved their prediction (95% probability) of a positive oral food challenge after cashew consumption in comparison to IgE against the whole cashew extract. In other words, increased analytical specificity of molecular Ana o 3-specific IgE testing (2) reportedly translates into an improved diagnostic efficacy and a superior prediction for a positive oral cashew challenge...

Latest research data have emphasized the interaction between the nervous and the immune systems. In this regard, it has been demonstrated that the disruption of the blood-brain barrier (BBB) secondary to peripheral inflammation may play a key role in this relationship. This assumption is linked to recent findings according to which units that constitute the BBB are not only simply neurologic but have also been reconsidered as "neurovascular" elements, through which immune system molecules are vehiculated within the central nervous system (CNS)...

BACKGROUND: False positive test results in children who are tested for food allergies may lead to inappropriate dietary restrictions. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to report our experience with a 3 year-old boy, who presented with "multiple food allergies" and, however, passed the food challenges, and to review our experience regarding management of children with high specific food IgEs with high total IgE. METHODS: Medical records of 16 children with food challenges were reviewed...

BACKGROUND: Risk factors for persistence of food-related symptoms (FRS) and food allergy (FA) from early life to adolescence are incompletely understood. The aim of this study was to identify risk factors for FRS and FA in adolescence amongst children with FRS or FA in the first four years of life (early life). METHODS: In children enrolled in a Swedish birth cohort and followed to 16 years (n = 2572), we defined children with early life FRS in the absence of FA, and FA...

Sam Hassan, Mary Jacqueline Saviour
Causes of facial rashes and erythema in infants are many but rarely only happen during feeding times which are commonly and sometimes wrongly attributed to food allergy. There is a rare condition called Auriculotemporal nerve syndrome that is characterized by recurrent episodes of gustatory facial flushing and sweating along the cutaneous distribution of Auriculotemporal nerve: the so-called Frey syndrome. This condition is most frequently observed in adults usually after parotid surgery. It is rare in children and is mostly attributed to forceps assisted delivery...

Anaphylaxis is a severe potentially life-threatening allergic emergency that has been increasing over the last two decades, especially in young children. Anaphylaxis deaths remain rare, in particular in children, and their frequency is stable during this period. Food is the main anaphylaxis trigger in children, notably to cow's milk, peanuts, and tree nuts. In infants, the recognition of anaphylaxis may be difficult. Vomiting, urticaria, and laryngeal edema are more frequent at this age. Cardiovascular involvement is rare, most often encountered in adolescence...
