A diagnosis of food allergy adversely impacts one's ability to join or remain in the military. Inadequate knowledge or misconceptions of current military-specific standards regarding food allergy and how these apply to enlistment, induction, and retention in the United States military can potentially lead to inaccurate counseling as each military service has specific regulations which impact the evaluation and decision-making process. Recognizing this knowledge gap, the American Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology (AAAAI) Military Allergy and Immunology Assembly (MAIA) established a Work Group who reviewed and summarized all aspects of military instructions, policies, and regulations regarding IgE mediated food allergy...

Atopic dermatitis is a systemic disorder characterized by abnormal barrier function across multiple organ sites. Initial disruption in the skin epidermal barrier permits allergen sensitization and colonization by pathogens. This induces TH 2 inflammatory response and a thymic stromal lymphopoietin mediated pathway that further promotes barrier breakdown at distant sites including the intestinal and respiratory tract. Clinically, atopic dermatitis can progress from skin disease to food allergy, allergic rhinitis, and later asthma, a phenomenon commonly known as the atopic march...

Allergies manifest differently in every patient: Even when the same allergen source is the causing agent, means of sensitization and complexity of symptoms can vary strongly across patients. This often complicates the prevention, diagnostics and therapy of food allergies - or even makes them impossible. This article gives an overview of the underlying immunological principles of food-allergies, as well as of the current therapeutic and diagnostic approaches.

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: In the last years, food allergy treatment is moving away from food avoidance to interventional treatments. We review here the recent developments on immunotherapy with food allergens. RECENT FINDINGS: Oral immunotherapy remains the best studied form of food immunotherapy. In 2017, further evidence has been added to its efficacy. Its mechanisms of action are under scrutiny. To reduce its side effects, studies have been dedicated to the simultaneous use of biologics, in particular omalizumab...

BACKGROUND: Oral immunotherapy (OIT) is a promising treatment for persons with allergy; however, it can also cause adverse allergic reactions. In this study, we investigated the efficacy of low-dose OIT for anaphylactic peanut allergy. METHODS: Twenty-four children (median age, 9.6 years) with anaphylaxis to peanuts were hospitalized for 5 days and then gradually fed increasing amounts of peanut powder up to 133 mg/day. One year later, they underwent an oral food challenge after 2 weeks of peanut avoidance...

We describe a case of a woman who developed three separate episodes of urticaria and ana-phylaxis during exercise after consuming an apple, with immunological evidence that nonspecific lipid transfer proteins (LTP) may have been responsible for these reactions. LTP sensitivity can cause life-threatening allergies and anaphylaxis. Although LTP sensitization is common in Mediterranean countries, the frequency of knowledge and diagnoses is increasing in Europe. Despite the geographic differences, LTP allergy should be kept on sight when facing severe anaphylaxis after consuming LTP-included food...

REVIEW
Julia Upton, Anna Nowak-Wegrzyn
Baked milk (BM) and baked egg (BE) diets are increasingly used in the management of milk and egg allergy, rather than avoidance. Children with tolerance versus reactivity to BM and BE may have smaller skin prick test and lower specific IgE, and BM-tolerant children have less basophil reactivity and more peripheral T regulatory cells. However, most milk- and egg-allergic children tolerate BM and BE and an individual's reactivity is unpredictable. Non-reactivity is due to conformational changes in the allergens...

The introduction of solid food is necessary for any infant in order to provide adequate nutrition because when they grow up milk is insufficient for their nutritional needs. Infants born preterm have increased nutritional requirements. The high nutrient demands as well as the organ immaturity of preterm infants combine to render it difficult to achieve dietary intakes that will allow preterm infants to match their in utero growth rates. Current guidelines for the introduction of solid food to term infants cannot be directly translated to preterm infants...

BACKGROUND: Oral immunotherapy (OIT) is a new approach in patients with food allergy. Various immunological mechanisms underlie the reversal of food allergy. In this paper, we study possible changes in peripheral cytokine patterns during OIT. METHODS: Determinations of cytokines in peripheral blood were made in children who had milk or egg allergy and who received OIT. The determinations were made before and after OIT, and again following a final repeat oral challenge a month after a diet excluding the culprit food...

Cow's milk allergy (CMA) is one of the most common food allergies, especially during childhood. CMA is an immunological mediated adverse reaction to one or more cow's milk proteins, which are normally harmless to a non-allergic individual, as the result of a failure of oral tolerance. To make a correct diagnosis of CMA and a proper treatment is critical in clinical practice. Application of proteomics along with new bio-informatics tools in the field of food allergy is one of the hot topics presented in recent years...

Latest forecasts predict that half of the European population will be allergic within the coming 15 years, with food allergies contributing substantially to the total burden; preventive measures are urgently needed. Unfortunately, all attempted alimentary strategies for primary prevention of allergic diseases through allergen avoidance so far have failed. This also holds true for the prevention of food allergies in breastfed infants by the common practice of excluding certain foods with allergenic potential from the maternal diet...

Atopic dermatitis (AD) is a chronic inflammatory skin disease that causes dry skin and functional disruption of the skin barrier. AD is often accompanied by allergic inflammation. AD patient suffer from heavy itching, and their quality of life is severely affected. Some pharmaceuticals for AD have some side effects such as skin atrophy. So it is necessary to develop mild solutions such as food ingredients without side effects. There are various causes of AD. It is especially induced by immunological imbalances such as IFN-γ reduction...
