CONCLUSIONS: This study provides detailed information that facilitates studying CRS and its main phenotypes. However, patient distribution of this study does not necessarily reflect disease distribution in the general population. PMID: 29911211 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

chikowski T Abstract Childhood eczema results from an interplay of genetic and environmental factors including Traffic-Related Air Pollution (TRAP). In contrast, little is known about eczema in the elderly in general and its association with TRAP in particular. Animal experiments indicate that the arylhydrocarbon receptor (AHR) might link TRAP and eczema. We investigated (i) incidence and prevalence of eczema in elderly women, (ii) its association with long-term TRAP exposure and (iii) the effect modification by AHR polymorphism rs2066853. The study is based on the SALIA cohort. The women's average age was 55 year...

Our data provide evidence for targeting IL-13 alone in atopic dermatitis. Tralokinumab demonstrated meaningful improvements in Eczema Area and Severity Index and Investigator ’s Global Assessment responses, with additional benefits in participants with increased IL-13 activity.

Conclusion: Allergic diseases seem to be linked to several risk factors in our population of school children. Many environmental factors might be incriminated in these allergic diseases.

Conclusion This study provides a new insight into the relationship between allergic symptoms and childhood acute lymphoid leukaemia, by suggesting this inverse association could be limited to children carrying certain genetic polymorphisms. If confirmed, these results could help better understand the biological mechanisms involved in the development of childhood acute lymphoid leukaemia.

Abstract Little is known about whether maternal immune status during pregnancy influences asthma development in the child. We measured cytokine production in supernatants from mitogen-stimulated peripheral blood immune cells collected during and after pregnancy from the mothers of children enrolled in the Tucson Infant Immune Study, a non-selected birth cohort. Physician-diagnosed active asthma in children through age 9 and a history of asthma in their mothers were assessed through questionnaires. Maternal production of each of the cytokines IL-13, IL-4, IL-5, IFN-γ, IL-10, and IL-17 during pregnancy was unr...

Authors: Han JH, Lee HJ, Bang CH, Lee JH, Park YM, Lee JY Abstract Background: P-phenylenediamine (PPD) has been identified as the most frequent contact sensitizer of hair dye and the clinical characteristics of hair dye contact allergy (HDCA) are diverse. Objective: The purpose of this study was to identify the clinical characteristics of HDCA and to assess the relationships between HDCA, exposure time to PPD and PPD positivity. Methods: We analyzed 105 patients with patch test-confirmed hair dye allergy who presented between July 2009 and March 2015. Clinical symptoms, signs, associated skin diseases, inv...

Atopic dermatitis (AD), contact dermatitis, and irritant dermatitis share many similarities, and are often tied together in a Gordian knot of etiopathogenesis and therapeutic considerations. The pruritus, eczematous morphology, and waxing-waning presentations can be clinically indistinguishable, and as more of the scientific underpinnings are elucidated, connections in their complex pathophysiology continue to be found.1,2 Differentiating between these entities, especially when more than 1 may be present simultaneously, can be a daunting task.
