Authors: Ohshima C, Sato F, Takahashi H, Kuda T, Kimura B Abstract Histamine in foods with a high histidine content may be produced by bacteria with histidine decarboxylase activity. Consumption of food enriched in histamine can produce symptoms of histamine poisoning that include flushing, headache, and urticaria. The number of histamine poisoning cases in Japan has decreased with developments in food hygiene management technology. However, approximately 10 cases are still reported each year. In addition, there have been cases where histamine was detected in the end products, prompting large product recalls. To pr...

Conclusions. This study brings additional evidences of interest to investigate IgE, D-dimer serum/plasma levels and basophil blood counts in patients with CSU as they could be correlated to disease activity, response to treatment and/or autoimmunity.

Urticaria is a common condition that has diverse non-allergic and allergic causes. [1] Its prevalence is higher in the first years of life and it decreases with age [2]. While the majority of cases in children are thought to be triggered by infections, 50% to 60% of acute urticaria (AU) cases are considered to be idiopathic or unknown [1-3].

CONCLUSIONS: Probiotics significantly reduce faecal calprotectin (a marker of intestinal inflammation) in children and adults with CF, however the clinical implications of this require further investigation. Probiotics may make little or no difference to pulmonary exacerbation rates, however, further evidence is required before firm conclusions can be made. Probiotics are associated with a small number of adverse events including vomiting, diarrhoea and allergic reactions. In children and adults with CF, probiotics may be considered by patients and their healthcare providers. Given the variability of probiotic composition ...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewThis paper is intended to review common uses of phototherapy in the treatment of dermatologic disease and to highlight recent updates in the field.Recent FindingsPhototherapy is effective in the treatment of several dermatologic conditions and offers a safe alternative to systemic treatments. Overall, limited studies on the use of phototherapy have been conducted. However, recent studies have demonstrated superior efficacy of various phototherapy options in comparison with other systemic or topical treatments for diseases such as psoriasis, vitiligo, atopic dermatitis, chronic urticaria, mycosis fu...

Assessing heavy metal pollution by biomonitoring honeybee nectar in Córdoba (Spain). Environ Sci Pollut Res Int. 2020 Jan 15;: Authors: Gutiérrez M, Molero R, Gaju M, van der Steen J, Porrini C, Ruiz JA Abstract Nectar of honeybee colonies has been used in order to identify heavy metals and establish the benefit of this type of studies as a tool for environmental management. For these goals, samples of nectar were obtained from Apis mellifera hives placed in the city of Córdoba (Spain) and its surroundings. Five stations (each with two hives) were selected and samples were collect...

by Sungrim Seirin-Lee, Yuhki Yanase, Shunsuke Takahagi, Michihiro Hide Urticaria is a common skin disorder characterized by the rapid appearance and disappearance of local skin edema and flares with itching. It is characterized by various macroscopic skin eruptions unique to patients and/or subtypes of urticaria with respect to shape, size, color, and/or duration of eruptions. Nevertheless, the mechanism underlying multifarious eruptions in urticaria is largely unknown. The eruptions are believed to be evoked by histamine release from mast cells in the skin. However, the majority of visible characteristics of urticaria ca...
