In the last two decades allergic diseases have seen a rise worldwide with children suffering the highest burden of the condition(1). Food allergies, eczema and asthma are the most common allergic disorders in children(1-2). The increasing burden of allergic conditions is an important public health concern and understanding how to prevent the development of allergic diseases is a vital area of research.

The incidence of IgE sensitization and associated diseases has been on the rise since the late 19th century reaching epidemic proportions in the current era.1 This increase has occurred over just four generations, a rate that far exceeds the rate at which genetics alone could account for the change. Explaining the cause for this epidemic has proven to be a challenge for epidemiologists, scientists and clinical researchers alike. In 1980, David Strachan proposed the well-known “hygiene hypothesis” which proposed that the increase in hay fever and eczema was a result of the decrease in “opportunity for cros...

ConclusionsThe regression of complaints after replacement with cementless and nickel-free revision implants suggests allergic implant intolerance. Implantation of a cementless, hypoallergenic endoprosthesis might, therefore, be a surgical treatment strategy in patients with evidence of allergies.

ConclusionModerate-to-severe AD is associated with significant decrements of health utility in the US population. These data illustrate the heavy societal burden of moderate and severe AD and provide important insight for prioritization of resource allocation and cost-effectiveness research.

AbstractBackgroundThe prevalence of allergic diseases, such as asthma, allergic rhinitis, eczema and food allergy, has been increasing worldwide, as shown in a large number of studies, including the International Study of Asthma and Allergies in Childhood (ISAAC). However, there is significant variation in the prevalence of these diseases in different regions, suggesting that there may be location-specific factors such as environment and microbial exposure affecting allergic disease prevalence. Hence, in this study we determine if there is a difference in microbiota composition and allergen concentration of household dust ...

BackgroundMultiple contact allergies (MCA) are evidenced by 3 or more positive patch test reactions to unrelated antigens. Factors associated with MCA include female gender, older age, and certain eczema sites.ObjectivesTo investigate the prevalence of MCA, risk factors for their development, and patterns of allergen combinations.MethodsThis retrospective, case ‐control study was conducted on patients suspected of having allergic contact dermatitis who had been patch tested with a baseline series during January 2007 through December 2016.ResultsOf the 2 178 included patients, 531 (24.4%) had MCA. A multivariate analysis ...

INTRODUCTIONUsually attributed to allergies or parasites (Seifert et. al Medline 2008) eosinophila is often overlooked. However hypereosinophilia (absolute eosinophil count>1.5 X 109/L on two separate exams one month apart or with pathologic confirmation) can have serious manifestations. When hypereosinophilia is associated with eosinophil-mediated organ damage or dysfunction, a hypereosinophilic syndrome (HES) exists.With an unpredictable course, eosinophilic infiltration commonly affects the skin (eczema), lung (dyspnea), &GIT (gastritis). However life-threatening damage to the CVS (myocarditis) or the CNS may occ...
