Economic evidence for the prevention and treatment of atopic eczema: a protocol for a systematic review

Discussion The systematic review is being undertaken to identify the type of economic evidence available, summarise the results of the available economic evidence and critically appraise the quality of economic evidence currently available to inform future economic modelling and resource allocation decisions about interventions to prevent or treat eczema. We aim to use the review to offer guidance about how to gather economic evidence in studies of eczema and/or what further research is necessary in order to inform this.

CONCLUSIONS AND RELEVANCE: Evidence on FLG-environment interactions in atopic dermatitis aetiology is limited. However, many of the studies lacked large enough sample sizes to fully assess these interactions. Further research is needed with larger sample sizes and clearly defined exposure assessment.

This study aims to systematically review the evidence describing the effects of timing of CM or cow’s milk formula (CMF) introduction to the infant diet on the development of atopic diseases during childhood. Pubmed, Embase, CINAHL, Cochrane CENTRAL, and CNKI were sea rched through May 30, 2019. Study screening and data extraction by two reviewers followed the PRISMA statement. Data were extracted independently in duplicate, and meta-analyses were performed by pooling unadjusted and adjusted odds ratio (OR) separately. Heterogeneity was explored usingI2 and publication bias by funnel plots and Begg ’s tests. In...

Allergic diseases such as atopic dermatitis (AD), food allergy (FA), asthma and allergic rhinitis (AR) are common; according to a national birth cohort study in Japan, almost half of pregnant women reported a history of allergic disease.1 Given that genetic factors, including family history, are predictors of allergic diseases in offspring, we expect the birth of many infants who carry a high risk of developing allergies. Among allergy prevention strategies, the effectiveness of primary prevention of eczema in high-risk infants by the topical application of emollient during the neonatal period has been demonstrated in two ...

Introduction: Although asthma/allergic diseases are known to follow circadian rhythmicity, whether these are associated with individual circadian preference/chronotype (CT) is not known.Objective: To estimate the association between allergic responses and chronotype among adolescents.Methods: Among 1684 adolescents (58% male) aged between 13 and 14 years, recruited from 23 randomly selected schools of 16 districts of West Bengal (India), prevalence of asthma, wheeze, rhinitis, rhinoconjunctivitis, and eczema were assessed using the English-back Bengali version of the International Study on Asthma and Allergies in Childhood...

We report on 7 AD patients presenting with a paradoxical head-neck erythema which appeared 10 to 39 weeks after start of dupilumab treatment. Patients presented with a relatively sharp demarcated, patchy erythema in the head and neck area that showed no or less scaling compared to their usual eczema. Only 1 patient experienced symptoms of itch and burning, although this was notably different from his pre-existent facial AD. Except for a notable "red face", eczema on other body parts had greatly improved in 6 out of 7 patients with a mean NRS treatment satisfaction of 9/10 at time of biopsy. Treatment of the eryth...
