What Proteins Cause Cow ’ s Milk Protein Allergy?

Discussion Cow’s milk protein allergy (CMPA) is one of the most common food allergies. It is estimated to have an incidence of 2-7.5% in infants and a prevalence of 0.5% in breastfeed infants. The prevalence decreases with age at 1% in children> or = 6 years. CMPA does not have a laboratory test and therefore is a clinical diagnosis. It is defined as a “hypersensitivity reaction brought on by specific immunologic mechanisms to cow’s milk.” Generally symptoms present within the first month of life and involve 2 of more systems with 2 or more symptoms. Systems are dermatologic (including atopic dermatitis, urticaria, oral pruritis), respiratory (including asthma, stridor, wheezing, rhinoconjunctivitis) and gastrointestinal (including emesis, diarrhea, constipation, malabsorption, gastroestophageal reflux disease) and other symptoms may include colic, irritability, failure to thrive or food aversion. IgE-mediated CMPA (Type 1 hypersensitivity reaction, ~50% of children) has symptoms that occur within minutes to 2 hours of ingestion of the CMP. Non-IgE mediated CMPA (Type 4 delayed hypersensitivity reaction) has symptoms that occur 4 or more hours (even up to 1 week) after exposure to CMP. Allergic colitis can have blood mixed into stools that are usually non-foul smelling, mucousy or foamy. Blood can be hematochezia or melanotic or insidious. The mechanism for rectal bleeding is felt to be ulceration of thinned mucosa that is stretched over enlarged h...

This study demonstrated a maximum 2.91 log reduction of Salmonella cocktail in wheat flour treated with 395 nm pulsed LED for 60 min in a semi-closed system. Oxidation occurred in wheat flour after 30 and 60 min exposure to the 395 nm LED, which subsequently led to bleaching, and polymerization of gluten components through disulphide linkage. The water holding capacity of gluten was reduced by oxidation, and the contents of secondary structures were altered significantly after pulsed LED treatment, but the rheological properties were not deteriorated. The disulfide bond formation naturally happens during dough form...

This has led to considerable interest in edible insects. Such insects form part of cultures and diets in many Asian and African countries, and are an excellent source of essential nutrients, minerals, vitamins and proteins. Furthermore, they have been reported to be sustainable. The ecological importance of insects is related to ...

This study aimed to enhance spray-drying tolerance of lactic acid bacteria by intracellular delivery of trehalose via electroporation. Diverse electroporation conditions were applied to Lactobacillus delbrueckii ssp bulgaricus sp1.1 cells exposed to 10% trehalose prior to spray drying with 30% re-constituted skimmed milk. Survival rates of spray-dried bacteria increased with an intracellular trehalose content of ≥3.5 µg/107 colony-forming units (CFU) and reached 100% with intracellular trehalose content of 10.1 µg/107 CFU. The application of two electroporation pulses at 2.5 kV/cm helped increase the surviva...

Herein, we present a ratiometric fluorescent sensing strategy based on an aptamer labeled with a fluorescent dye and a highly stable zirconium-porphyrin MOF (PCN-222) as a fluorescence quencher for the high-efficiency detection of chloramphenicol (CAP). PCN-222 exhibits a strong adsorption ability toward the d...

The zebrafish is well suited for large–scale genetic screens, available in large numbers, and continual advances in genetic engineering facilitate precise modeling of human genetic disorders. Most importantly, zebrafish are continuously accessible for imaging during critical periods o...

ConclusionData obtained demonstrated that solubility of Zn, Se and Mn was influenced by the mineral chemical form supplemented to the diet and by the gastrointestinal environment. The solubility of Zn, Se and Mn was not comparable with the apparent availability of Zn, Se and Mn. Nevertheless, the effect of the chemical form of the minerals was similar for the solubility of Zn, Se and Mn and the apparent availability of Zn, Se and Mn. Considering the overall results of this study, the in vitro method could replace some of the in vivo studies for a qualitative evaluation but not for a quantitative evaluation.

A 59-year-old woman presented with extreme thirst. She was a current smoker (35 pack-years) and had extensive peripheral vascular disease, including asymptomatic carotid artery stenosis. She had hypertension that was well regulated with a calcium channel blocker (nifedipine 30 mg once daily). Her thirst had become gradually worse over 6 months and was affecting her quality of life. During outpatient evaluation at a regional hospital, her thirst was accompanied by polydipsia and polyuria (both ∼6 l/d).
