This study was carried out to corroborate the superiority of nAAF over a different commercially available cAAF. METHODS AND STUDY DESIGN: Infants with CMA aged less than 4 months underwent a double-blind, placebo-controlled food challenge. They consumed each of the 2 test formulas for 14 days before switching to the other one. Following the 28-day challenge period, infants consumed the tolerated formula for 4 weeks as an at-home open challenge. RESULTS: Out of 36 infants who completed the study, 18 were intolerant to the cAAF, seven of whom (38.8%) were also intolerant to the nAAF. Eleven of the 18 infants who we...

Nearly every American is touched by serious chronic illness, either as a patient or as a caregiver. The federal government recognizes the far-reaching effects of such conditions, and agencies like the National Institutes of Health and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention conduct surveillance of these diseases. Such research allows us to better understand the burden of different diseases, develop new treatments and prevention practices, and protect the public’s health. And it is why surveillance programs exist for virtually every major disease and illness impacting the American public. Despite this fact, there i...

(NIH/National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases) Children exposed to high indoor levels of pet or pest allergens during infancy have a lower risk of developing asthma by 7 years of age, new research supported by the National Institutes of Health reveals. The findings, published September 19 in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology, may provide clues for the design of strategies to prevent asthma from developing.

ConclusionWe studied the national allergy programme that started in 2008 and found that there was a non‐significant overall decrease in the number of children aged 6‐7 on avoidance diets for allergies between 2009‐2016. The only allergies that showed signficiant decreases were fresh fruit and vegetables.This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

AbstractMast cells secrete a wide spectrum of stored or newly synthesized pro-inflammatory, anti-inflammatory, and/or immunosuppressive mediators and express several costimulatory and inhibitory surface molecules. Mast cells finely tune activities of T cells, B cells, and regulatory cells and effectively contribute to the development of different T cell-associated responses by influencing their recruitment, activation, proliferation, and differentiation. The interaction between mast cells and T cells, with regard to cellular functionality and immune responses, can be assessed in both activating and inhibitory regulations. ...

AbstractFood allergy imposes a severe global health burden, and thus, there is a dire need for safe and effective treatments. Allergen-specific immunotherapy (AIT) is currently the only approach to restore immune tolerance through administrating increasing doses of allergen extracts. Unfortunately, the development of AIT for food allergies has been impeded by the frequent anaphylactic side effects during the course of treatment. The emergence of component-resolved diagnosis has greatly improved our ability to identify causative allergens and revolutionized the design of AIT. Molecular features such as IgE-binding epitopes ...
