Authors: Choi Y, Jeon H, Yang EA, Yoon JS, Kim HH Abstract Background: Researcher showed that EPO is a relatively accurate marker of eosinophilia and eosinophil activity and that EPO has a higher correlation to them. However, it's use as markers of eosinophilic inflammation in nasal secretions is limited because the diagnostic cut-off values of EPO for use as one-time tests for allergic diseases such as allergic rhinitis have not been established. Purpose: To identify the correlation between nasal eosinophil and eosinophil peroxidase (EPO) in children and adolescents with rhinitis. Methods: We recruited pat...

ConclusionsPrompt epinephrine treatment is crucial. Use of antihistamines in conjunction with epinephrine may reduce the risk of uncontrolled reactions (administration of 2 or more doses of epinephrine in the ED), although our findings do not support the use of corticosteroids.

SilverbergOne in 4 adults with atopic dermatitis (AD) report adult-onset disease. Adult-onset AD appears to be associated with a different disease phenotype compared with childhood-onset AD. A broad differential diagnosis must be considered in a patient presenting with an adult-onset eczematous eruption, including allergic contact dermatitis, mycosis fungoides/cutaneous T-cell lymphoma, psoriasis, scabies, and so forth. This review will specifically address the diagnosis, workup, and ma...

CD48 is a member of the signaling lymphocyte activation molecule family and is expressed on most hematopoietic cells (Latchman et  al., 1998). CD48 has two different ligands, CD2 and CD244, and the latter binds to CD48 with a much higher affinity (Brown et al., 1998). Through interactions with these ligands, CD48 plays important roles in immune cell function and activation, such as enhancing T-cell activation, facilitating a dhesion of antigen-presenting cells, and modulating cytotoxic T-cell and natural killer-cell immunity, which are associated with a variety of diseases including autoimmunity, allergy, infecti...
