(Trinity College Dublin) Scientists from Trinity College Dublin, Ireland, have made a significant breakthrough in understanding the regulation of immune cells that play a pivotal role in allergic diseases such as asthma and eczema. They have identified a 'checkpoint' manned by these immune cells that, if barred, can halt the development of the lung inflammation associated with allergies.

CONCLUSIONS: Dietary restrictions are common among Chinese children with eczema in Hong Kong, who have a lower calcium, vitamin D, and iron intake. Nonetheless, such practice is not associated with changes to bone mineral density or bone resorptive biomarker. PMID: 28775219 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Abstract We welcome the critique by Apfelbacher and colleagues 1 of our overview of patient‐reported outcome measures (PROMS) in allergy and asthma clinical studies in children 2. Our focus was on identifying valid instruments and in so doing we relied on our own detailed systematic reviews in relation to asthma and food allergy 3‐5, recent evidence‐based guidelines on PROMS in allergy 6, and systematic reviews undertaken by others in atopic eczema/dermatitis and allergic rhinitis 7. We agree that on a closer look at the primary evidence in relation to PROMs for atopic eczema/dermatitis, whilst there is some evidence...

Conclusions and Clinical RelevanceOur findings provides further evidence of a developmental contribution to the risk of later allergic disorders, and suggests that involvement of epigenetic mechanisms in childhood asthma is already demonstrable at birth.This article is protected by copyright.

Abstract A popular hypothesis known as the atopic march proposes a set of sequential allergy and respiratory disorders in early childhood contributes enormously to the burden of disease in developed countries. Although the concept of the atopic march has been refined and strengthened by many cross‐sectional and longitudinal studies linking eczema as the initial manifestation with progression to hay fever and then asthma, there is yet no definitive proof that the atopic march is the primary causal factor in childhood allergic disease. This debate is mainly related to the controversy around potential confounding of these a...

Abstract BACKGROUND: Previous studies have found increased rates of musculoskeletal problems in adults with allergic disease, but whether this association holds true for children is unknown. OBJECTIVE: To investigate the association of bone, joint, and muscle problems in children with a history of allergic disease. METHODS: Data were obtained from the 2007 Child and Adolescent Health Measurement Initiative. Univariable and multivariable logistic regression models accounting for the sampling design were used to evaluate associations of bone, joint, and muscle problems with allergic diseases, such as asthm...
