Authors: Davis DM, Waldman A, Jacob S, LeBovidge J, Ahluwalia J, Tollefson M, Jetter N, Spergel J Abstract Atopic dermatitis (AD) is a chronic inflammatory skin disease, with a remitting relapsing course. The central diagnostic features of AD include pruritus, xerosis, eczematous lesions with a characteristic morphology and distribution, and a personal or family history of atopic disease. Several clinical studies have emphasized the link between AD and other atopic disorders including asthma, allergic rhinitis, and food allergies. More recent studies indicate possible links between AD and other nonatopic disorders,...

Abstract OBJECTIVE: To compare changes in quality of life (QOL) that resulted from sublingual immunotherapy (SLIT) and subcutaneous immunotherapy (SCIT) in a real-world clinical setting. BACKGROUND: SLIT is established as a viable alternative to SCIT for the treatment of allergic rhinitis. Although comparative trials are increasingly available, few studies have examined QOL outcomes between these two treatments. METHODS: One hundred and five participants who underwent immunotherapy for airborne allergies were enrolled in this prospective, single-center study. Forty participants completed the Rhinoconjuncti...

In this study, we investigated the relationship between hay fever and mineral concentrations in hair to obtain findings on the risk of developing pollen allergies. A questionnaire survey was conducted for 275 men and 977 women on their lifestyle habits and ten kinds of mineral concentrations present in their hair were measured with subsequent analysis using nominal logistic regression analysis. The results indicated that half the patients in each age group had hay fever, with no significant difference between hay fever and aging, exercise habits, sleep and dietary rhythms. On the other hand, there was a significant differe...

In this study, we sought to determine the association between nasal and extranasal symptoms of allergic rhinitis with general health-related QOL. METHODS: A total of 150 participants with ages> 18 years and persistent allergic rhinitis were prospectively recruited for this cross-sectional study. General health-related QOL was measured by using the visual analog scale (VAS) from the five-dimension EuroQol QOL survey (EQ-5D). The severity of nasal and extranasal symptoms was measured by using the 22-item Sino-Nasal Outcome Test (SNOT-22). The severity of nasal obstruction was measured by using the Nasal Obstruction S...

This report has been prepared by the European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology Task Force on Allergic Rhinitis (AR) comorbidities. The aim of this multidisciplinary European consensus document is to highlight the role of multimorbidities in the definition, classification, mechanisms, recommendations for diagnosis and treatment of AR, and to define the needs in this neglected area by a literature review. AR is a systemic allergic disease and is generally associated with numerous multi-morbid disorders, including asthma, eczema, food allergies, eosinophilic oesophagitis (EoE), conjunctivitis, chronic middle ear eff...

CONCLUSIONS: CPAP produces inflammation with increased nasal neutrophil levels in AR and nonAR patients. Nevertheless, patients with AR observed an improvement in nasal symptoms and quality of life, whereas in patients without AR, a relevant worsening of nasal dryness and mucociliary transport was observed.
