Cold Urticaria: Clinical Features and Natural Course in a Tropical Country.

CONCLUSIONS: The rate of anaphylaxis in patients with ColdU in a tropical country was lower than those reported by other studies conducted intemperate climates. On the other hand, the number of female patients, mean age at symptom onset, atopy rate, rate of concomitant chronic spontaneous urticaria and mean CTT were higher. PMID: 31172722 [PubMed]

CONCLUSION: The reactions that develop during this long-term treatment may be treated by premedication-prolonged infusion but in some patients, desensitization protocols is necessary for the continuation of therapy. Revisions in desensitization protocols may be required. PMID: 32687987 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Anaphylaxis is a severe allergic reaction that can potentially lead to death if not promptly treated. Allergic reactions typically begin suddenly after exposure to an allergen, which may be a food, medication, insect sting, or another trigger. Anaphylaxis can occur in anyone at any time; it can sometimes be triggered by allergens that a person has only had mild reactions to in the past — or to which they have never reacted to before. Recognizing anaphylaxis A mild allergic reaction may consist of hives, itching, flushing, swelling of the lips or tongue, or some combination of these. However, throat swelling or tighte...

Nicola Mucci Allergic disorders in the agriculture sector are very common among farm workers, causing many injuries and occupational diseases every year. Agricultural employees are exposed to multiple conditions and various allergenic substances, which could be related to onset of anaphylactic reactions. This systematic review highlights the main clinical manifestation, the allergens that are mostly involved and the main activities that are usually involved. This research includes articles published on the major databases (PubMed, Cochrane Library, Scopus), using a combination of keywords. The online search yielded 48...

ConclusionA multidisciplinary approach to the treatment of sinonasal symptoms using both escalation of medical therapy and surgical approaches may improve QOL of patients with suspected MCAS. Consensus criteria for MCAS, which includes elevation in tryptase over baseline during an episode, may exclude the full spectrum of individuals with MCAS from potentially beneficial treatment.

Hymenoptera venom allergy affects approximately 3% of the adult population in Western countries 1,2,3,4 and represents the most common cause of anaphylaxis in Germany, Austria and Switzerland accounting for 50% of reported cases5. The incidence of insect sting related mortality in Europe caused by anaphylaxis is estimated around 200 fatalities per year6, but the incidence of near-fatal episodes might be considerably higher7. Moreover, the documented mortality may be underestimated because of unrecognized insect stings in unexplained causes of death8.

BackgroundKetotifen is a second ‐generation noncompetitive H1‐antihistamine and mast‐cell stabilizer. It is commonly used to treat or prevent allergic conjunctivitis, asthma, chronic urticaria, anaphylaxis, mast‐cell, and other allergic‐type disorders. However, it has never been studied in aspirin‐exacerbated respirato ry disease (AERD), an aggressive phenotype of chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps, where the mast cell plays a prominent role its pathogenesis.MethodsHuman sinonasal epithelial cells were grown at an air ‐liquid interface (ALI). Ketotifen powder was dissolved in saline to make 4 test solut...

We report a case of an 8-year-old boy who developed a cochineal allergy.Current disease history: He has been suffering from atopic dermatitis, bronchial asthma, and food allergies since childhood. At the age of seven, he experienced an unknown anaphylaxis reaction twice. When he was 8 years old, he ate a frankfurter containing hypoallergenic cochineal for the first time; cold sweat, intraoral discomfort, respiratory distress, and urticaria appeared throughout the body. His skin prick tests were positive, with a result of 2+to frankfurter and cochineal dyes (color value 0.1 and 0.01). In the immunoblot assay, binding of IgE...

(CNN) — The US Food and Drug Administration approved the first drug to treat peanut allergies in children on Friday, following an advisory committee vote of approval in September. The drug, Palforzia, can be used for children between 4 and 17 years old. It’s designed to minimize the incidence and severity of a child’s allergic reaction to peanuts, as even a small amount of exposure can be harmful to children with the allergy. Children are left attempting to avoid exposure to peanuts to avoid reactions. Though that will continue to be necessary with Palforzia, the risk of a reaction will be lessened, says ...
