BACKGROUND: Twenty percent of children outgrow peanut allergy and 10% outgrow tree nut allergy. Resolution can be confirmed by a food challenge. Little is known about the psychosocial impact of the challenge. We aimed to investigate effects of a food challenge on anxiety, stress and quality of life (QoL) in ...

Allergic phenomena share common pathways with the immune response against helminth parasites. The definitions regarding allergens and their related concepts have their roots in the area of allergy research. The experience with the fish parasite Anisakis simplex-associated allergic features still nurtures an open debate on the necessity of larvae being ...

Chronic sinusitis and nasal polyps with subsequent nasal blocking, anosmia, and relapsing infections are frequent in the rhinological practice. Often, recurrent disease necessitates repetitive conservative therapy and surgical treatment (functional endoscopic sinus surgery). This study was initiated to scrutinize the relationship of wheat and milk allergies to chronic polypoid sinusitis ...

Sphingosine-1-phosphate (S1P) influences activation, migration and death of immune cells. Further, S1P was proposed to play a major role in the induction and promotion of allergic diseases. However, to date only limited information is available on the role of S1P in food allergy. We aimed to investigate the role of ...

Thioredoxin (TRX) catalyzes the reduction of disulfide bonds in proteins via the NADPH-dependent thioredoxin reductase system. Reducing the disulfide bonds of allergenic proteins in food by TRX lowers the allergenicity. We established in this study a method to prepare TRX-enriched extracts from the edible yeast, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, on a large ...

Allergy to tree nuts represents an acute health problem. Sensitized people can be inadvertently exposed to hidden allergens resulting from cross-contamination of foods. For this reason, reliable and highly sensitive analytical methods are needed to be developed for control and labeling of food ingredients and products. In the present paper ...

BACKGROUND: Our objective was to determine the texture of semisolid foods that are appropriate for poststroke dysphagic patients. METHODS: Subjects included 52 poststroke dysphagic patients (72 ± 8 years of age) who were trained with semisolid foods and required the evaluation of swallowing function. Fifty-two homogeneous semisolid foods not requiring ...

Food allergy is defined as an abnormal immunologic reaction to food proteins that causes an adverse clinical reaction. In addition to well-known acute allergic reactions and anaphylaxis triggered by immunoglobulin E antibody-mediated immune responses to food proteins, there is an increasing recognition of cell-mediated disorders such as eosinophilic esophagitis and ...

Hazelnuts (Corylus avellana) are used widely in the food industry, especially in confectionery, where they are used raw, roasted or in a processed formulation (e.g., praline paste and hazelnut oil). Hazelnuts contain multiple allergenic proteins which can induce an allergic reaction associated with symptoms ranging from mild irritation to life-threatening ...

The immunologic mechanisms responsible for the development of allergic sensitization rather than tolerance to foods are not well understood, although there have been a number of recent advances in our understanding of why some foods are inherently allergenic. In addition, the involvement of alternative routes of exposure that are not ...

BACKGROUND: There is an emerging consensus that, as with other risks in society, zero risk for food-allergic people is not a realistic or attainable option. Food allergy challenge data and new risk assessment methods offer the opportunity to develop quantitative limits for unintended allergenic ingredients which can be used in ...

Intestinal epithelial barrier plays a critical role in the maintenance of gut homeostasis by limiting the penetration of luminal bacteria and dietary allergens, yet allowing antigen sampling for the generation of tolerance. Undigested proteins normally do not gain access to the lamina propria due to physical exclusion by tight junctions ...

Food allergy is a lifelong condition with no known treatment or cure. Allergy tests such as skin tests and blood tests are not always accurate when positive and are not necessarily diagnostic of a food allergy. A food allergy takes into consideration both the history of exposure and the testing. ...

Background: Peanut allergy is recognized as one of the most severe food allergies. Some studies have investigated the effects of enzymatic treatments on the in vitro immunological reactivity of members of the Leguminosae family, such as the soybean, chickpea and lentil. Nevertheless, there are only a few studies carried out ...

Compliance with the European allergen labelling legislation (Directive 2007/86/EC) is only possible when coupled with appropriate methods to detect allergens in food. The aim of the current study was to develop new real-time PCR assays for the detection of hazelnut and soy and evaluate these assays via comparison with commercially ...

We examined whether the risk of food-allergen sensitization varied according to self-identified race or genetic ancestry. We studied 1104 children (mean age: 2.7 years) from an urban multiethnic birth cohort. Food sensitization was defined as specific immunoglobulin E (sIgE) levels of ≥ 0.35 kilo-units of allergen (kUA)/L for any of ...

Anaphylaxis is a life-threatening allergic condition. The 3 most common triggers for anaphylaxis are food, medications, and insects. All of these triggers are the sources of considerable morbidity and mortality, but of the 3, only insect allergy is treatable through means other than trigger avoidance. Because ≥40 deaths per year ...

Prevalence of asthma and allergy has increased over the past 2-3 decades in Westernized countries. Despite increased understanding of the pathogenesis of asthma and allergic diseases, control of severe asthma is still difficult. Asthma is also associated with a high prevalence of anxiety, particularly in adolescents. There is no effective ...

1 Food allergy appears to be increasing in prevalence and is estimated to affect >2% and possibly up to 10% of the population. Food allergies are defined by an immune response triggered by food proteins. Emerging data suggest that carbohydrate moieties on food proteins, specifically mammalian meats, may also elicit ...

Over the past several decades, the incidence of atopic diseases such as asthma, atopic dermatitis and food allergies has increased dramatically. Although atopic diseases have a clear genetic basis, environmental factors, including early infant nutrition, may have an important influence on their development. Therefore, attempts have been made to reduce ...

BACKGROUND: Several risk factors for severe anaphylactic reactions to food in daily life are known. However, to date, it is not possible to predict the severity of allergic reactions to food in the individual patient with accuracy. Some studies show that a history of severe reactions is associated with a ...

Scope: Food allergy is caused by primary (class 1) food allergens, e.g. Bos d 5 (cow's milk) and Cor a 8 (hazelnut) or secondary (class 2) food allergens, e.g. Mal d 1 (apple). The latter cannot sensitize susceptible individuals but can cause allergy due to immunological cross-reactivity with homologous respiratory ...

Thermal stability has been reported as a shared characteristic among some of the major food allergens and appears to have originated from the observation that some cooked foods retain their ability to cause allergic reactions by Immunoglobulin E (IgE) binding and the subsequent cascade of events that mediate allergic reactions. ...

Anisakis simplex (As), a parasite in fish, is able to sensitize humans via the alimentary tract. The prevalence of hypersensitivity and allergy to As outside the Iberian peninsula has not been investigated so far. We investigated Anisakis hypersensitivity in different areas of Italy. Consecutive subjects seen at 34 Italian allergy ...

Background: Severe food allergy has potentially life threatening consequences. Despite the significant impact on quality of life for families affected by food allergy, there is still relatively little known about the psychosocial experience in this area, especially with regards to the parenting experience. Objectives: This study focused on the following ...

Omalizumab is currently used in severe asthma and has been tried in other allergic disorders. The authors report two patients with multiple food allergies and eosinophilic esophagitis on a very restrictive diet who have been treated with omalizumab, in order to improve food intolerance-the major distressing factor in their lives. ...
