Conclusions: In conclusion, our report shows that cooked onion can induce severe allergic reactions, suggesting the presence of thermostable components. Moreover, we applied for the first time a B-cell-based approach to the diagnosis of food allergy. This latter approach might also be applied to other allergic conditions. PMID: 30858787 [PubMed]

Atopic dermatitis (AD) is a chronic, predominantly type 2 inflammatory skin disease that affects up to 10% of adults and 20% of children [1 –5]. Moderate-to-severe AD is characterized by extensive eczematous lesions, pronounced persistent, severe itch [6–8], substantial pain and discomfort [9–12], and is frequently associated with other type 2 (atopic/allergic) comorbidities, e.g. asthma, allergic rhinitis, chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyposis (CRSwNP), eosinophilic esophagitis, and food allergies [8,13–15], and a significant disease burden, e.g.

AbstractPurpose of ReviewStaphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) is correlated with the development of persistent severe inflammatory disease of the upper airway including chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps (CRSwNP). The presence ofS. aureus is associated with atopic disease including allergic rhinitis and atopic dermatitis and is associated with poor outcomes.Recent FindingsSeveral different strains ofS. aureus generate different toxins and gene products that can account for organism pathogenicity.S. aureus bacteria and its antigens shape the bacterial and fungal microbiome and the mucosal niche which generates host respo...

AbstractCosmetics and skin care products for neonates and infants are considered as ‘‘hypoallergenic’’, “tested” or ‘‘safe’’. Nevertheless, the prevalence of haptens in these products is a matter of concern, since allergic contact dermatitis in children is gaining an importance. We aimed to assess the prevalence of haptens in cosmetics designed for children youn ger than 1 year. To identify haptens, the components of the cosmetics listed on packaging were compared with substances from European baseline series, Cosmetics series and Fragrance series. Survey com...

Contact dermatitis is an inflammatory cutaneous reaction induced by an exogenous agent coming into direct contact with the skin and is characterized by pruritic, well-defined, eczematous dermatitis with vesicles, or erythematous papules.[1-3] Irritant contact dermatitis (ICD) accounts for>80% of cases and occurs as a result of direct damage to the skin by physical agents or chemicals without prior sensitization.[4] Only 20% of cases of contact dermatitis have an underlying allergic mechanism. Allergic contact dermatitis (ACD) is a delayed, type IV (T-cell mediated) hypersensitivity reaction occurring in susceptible indi...
