Acupuncture improves symptoms in patients with mild-to-moderate atopic dermatitis: A randomized, sham-controlled preliminary trial.

CONCLUSIONS: For the following research, the authors suggest SCORAD (Total) as primary outcome and SCORAD (objective), VAS (Itch), VAS (insomnia), EASI, POEM, and DLQI as secondary outcomes. Thirty six participants should be conducted a 4-week acupuncture period (twice weekly) and a 4-week follow-up. It is necessary to compare the differences of general symptoms according to presence of epigastric tenderness or dyspepsia at the screening level. PMID: 30477869 [PubMed - in process]

We examined our primary care birth cohort of 158,510 pediatric patients, of whom 214 patients met 2017 FPIES diagnostic criteria. We measured the influence of FPIES on developing subsequent atopic disease.ResultsPediatric FPIES incidence was between 0.17% and 0.42% depending on birth year. As in prior reports, most patients had an acute presentation (78%), and milk, soy, oat, rice, potato, and egg were common triggers. The mean age of diagnosis was 6.8 months. Atopic comorbidity was higher in patients with FPIES compared with healthy children (AD, 20.6% vs 11.7%; IgE-FA, 23.8% vs 4.0%; asthma, 26.6% vs 18.4%; AR, 28.0% vs 16.7%; P
