BACKGROUND: Concerns regarding topical corticosteroid (TCS) use, broadly known as "corticophobia", are highly prevalent among dermatology patients and often result in non-adherence to TCS. This non-adherence contributes to poor disease control and increased health care costs. However, it is unknown if assessment of these concerns might help to identify patients at risk of TCS-non-adherence. Clinical tools indicating non-adherence could be helpful to improve management of this patient group...

"Tree nut" is a broad term for classification of nuts that include cashews, almonds, hazelnuts etc. Reports of mild to adverse immune reactions following the consumption of these nuts has been on a rise in recent years. Currently, about 1.2 - 2% of the world's population suffer from sensitivity to tree nuts. The only solution is complete abstinence from the allergy causing tree nut which is not feasible in most cases due to issues like cross contamination or their presence in the form of hidden ingredients in processed foods...

Tree nuts are one of the most common foods causing acute allergic reactions and nearly all tree nuts have been associated with fatal allergic reactions. Despite their clinical importance, tree nut allergy epidemiology remains understudied and the prevalence of tree nut allergy in different regions of the world has not yet been well characterised. We aimed to systematically review the population prevalence of tree nut allergy in children and adults. We searched three electronic databases (OVID MEDLINE, EMBASE and PubMed) from January 1996 to December 2014...

BACKGROUND: In children with food allergy, multiple food-specific serum IgE levels to common food allergens are frequently measured. OBJECTIVE: To compare food-specific serum IgE measurements among common food allergens in children with food allergy to determine the characteristics of the measurements, their ability to discriminate between foods associated and not associated with a presenting clinical reaction, and their change over time. METHODS: A retrospective analysis was conducted of food-specific serum IgE to cow's milk, egg white and yolk, peanuts, almond, and soy, for up to 3 subsequent measurements, in 291 children with food allergy...

Food allergies have become a significant medical and legal concern for children worldwide, as there is a rising incidence of potentially fatal hypersensitivity reactions. The most common foods implicated include cow milk, wheat, egg, soy, peanut, tree nuts such as walnuts, hazelnuts, almonds, cashews, pecans, and pistachios, fish and shellfish. The majority of food allergies represent an IgE-mediated hypersensitivity reaction to specific proteins found in foods. Peanut allergy, in particular, is a significant food allergy responsible for the majority of patients with food-induced anaphylaxis...

Although much is known today about the prevalence of food allergy in the developed world, there are serious knowledge gaps about the prevalence rates of food allergy in developing countries. Food allergy affects up to 6% of children and 4% of adults. Symptoms include urticaria, gastrointestinal distress, failure to thrive, anaphylaxis and even death. There are over 170 foods known to provoke allergic reactions. Of these, the most common foods responsible for inducing 90% of reported allergic reactions are peanuts, milk, eggs, wheat, nuts (e...

BACKGROUND: Tree nut allergy is characterized by a high frequency of life-threatening reactions and is typically lifelong persistent. Some people with a pistachio nut allergy, which is common in the pistachio rich area of Iran, develop a hypersensitivity to other tree nuts as well. The aim of this study was to investigate the prevalence of pistachio nut allergy in Iran, the major pistachio cultivation region in the world. The study also addressed the presence of allergenic cross-reactivity between pistachio and other nuts, including almond, peanut, and cashew in pistachio allergic patients...

Seed storage proteins are accumulated during seed development and act as a reserve of nutrition for seed germination and young sprout growth. Plant seeds play an important role in human nutrition by providing a relatively inexpensive source of protein. However, many plant foods contain allergenic proteins, and the number of people suffering from food allergies has increased rapidly in recent years. The 11S globulins are the most widespread seed storage proteins, present in monocotyledonous and dicotyledonous seeds as well as in gymnosperms (conifers) and other spermatophytes...

BACKGROUND: The increasing number of applications of sweet lupins in food is paralleled by an increase in immunoglobulin E (IgE)-mediated allergic reactions to lupin proteins. In particular, lupin allergy seems to appear in patients with an existing peanut allergy. In the present study, IgE-binding studies towards fractionated lupin seed proteins, and peanut and almond proteins were performed using sera from patients with confirmed lupin allergy. METHODS: Immunoblotting and indirect ELISA were performed to investigate IgE binding to protein extracts...

BACKGROUND: The identity of allergenic almond proteins is incomplete. OBJECTIVE: Our objective was to characterize patient IgE reactivity to a recombinant and corresponding native almond allergen. METHODS: An almond cDNA library was screened with sera from patients with allergy for IgE binding proteins. Two reactive clones were sequenced, and 1 was expressed. The expressed recombinant allergen and its native counterpart (purified from unprocessed almond flour) were assayed by 1-dimensional and 2-dimensional gel electrophoresis, dot blot, and ELISA, and screened for cross-reactivity with grass profilin...

The aims of this study were to define the development of sensitization and clinical allergy to multiple nut types by age, and to identify associations. This observational cross- sectional study was carried out in a tertiary level allergy clinic. Seven hundred and eighty four nut-allergic children, prospectively enrolled on first attendance with history of a type-1 allergic reaction shortly after definite nut ingestion with evidence of sensitization (presence of nut-specific IgE) by skin prick test (SPT) to peanut, Brazil, almond, hazel and walnut (positive > or = 3 mm)...

BACKGROUND: Peanut and tree nut allergy are common, increasing in prevalence and the commonest food cause of anaphylaxis. In the USA, 7.8% are sensitized (have nut-specific IgE), but not all those sensitized are allergic. Lack of data makes interpretation of tests for nut-specific IgE difficult. OBJECTIVES: This is the first study to investigate the clinical significance of test results for peanut and tree nut allergy in allergic or tolerant patients. Findings are related to the severity of the allergy...

BACKGROUND: Allergy to almonds has been frequently reported, but data on the identification of the almond allergens, as well as on the reliability of the methods for in vitro detection of specific IgE for these allergens, are scant. This study aimed to identify the almond allergens and to evaluate the reliability of the CAP-FEIA as the standard system for detection of almond-specific IgE with clinical significance. METHODS: Immunoblotting performed with an almond-protein extract was carried out on the sera of five patients who had previously been tested by the CAP-FEIA system; two of these patients had tested negative with the CAP-FEIA system but suffered life-threatening laryngeal edema after eating almonds, whereas the other three subjects, who had tested positive with CAP-FEIA, did not present any symptoms subsequent to almond ingestion...

BACKGROUND: Peanut (PN) and tree nut (TN) allergies are potentially life-threatening, rarely outgrown, and appear to be increasing in prevalence. However, there is relatively little reported about the clinical features of acute reactions to these foods and their potential association. OBJECTIVE: To describe the clinical features of acute reactions during initial and subsequent accidental ingestions of PN and TN among children with a history of at least one acute allergic reaction to these foods...

The diagnosis of food allergy is often difficult to make by conventional means. Histories are frequently ambiguous, and skin testing is of dubious reliability because of the number of false-positive and false-negative reactions. We have evaluated the radioallergosorbent test (RAST) for the in vitro measurement of the specific IgE antibodies to nuts, including Brazil nut, almond, walnut, pecan, cashew, and the legume, peanut. Serums were obtained from 18 patients with a history of nut allergy and IgE level and specific IgE antibodies were measured...
