Aim: To determine the influence of allergy risk factors on the concentration of specific IgE antibodies in serum. Material and methods: The concentration of sIgE antibodies against allergens Dermatophagoides pteronyssinus, cat dander, timothy grass, Alternaria alternata were determined in serum of 4077 respondents randomly selected from 9 regions (EC...

The “atopic march” recognizes the increased occurrence of asthma and/or allergic rhinitis after atopic dermatitis (AD) onset. Mechanisms for developing atopic comorbidities after AD onset are poorly understood, but may involve the impaired cutaneous barrier, which facilitates cutaneous sensitization . The association may also be driven or amplified in susceptible individuals by a systemic Th2-dominant immune response to cutaneous inflammation. However, these associations may merely involve shared genetic loci and environmental triggers, including microbiome dysregulation, with the temporal sequ ence reflecting ...

(CNN) — Your baby’s pacifier falls on the floor. Before giving it back to your child, do you wash it in a sink or, perhaps reluctantly, clean it with your own saliva? Don’t feel too guilty if you chose the latter, because a new study suggests that a mother’s spit — and the bacteria in it — may help prevent allergies in young children. The research found lower levels of a troublesome, allergy-causing protein in babies whose mothers reported sucking on their infants’ pacifiers, adding to a growing body of evidence that early exposure to microbes may prevent allergies in children. &ld...
