ConclusionsHistory of penicillin-associated rash (without angioedema, mucosal ulceration, or systemic involvement), more than 1 year ago, is sufficient to select a patient for a direct oral penicillin challenge. This large multicenter study demonstrates that this approach appears safe, and risk is comparable to that in other procedures being performed in primary care in Australia. The higher risk patients are more likely to benefit from skin testing. This simple risk-based delabeling strategy could potentially be used by nonallergists, leading to more efficient penicillin allergy delabeling service provision.

ConclusionsThe trial demonstrated a favorable safety profile of the SQ HDM SLIT tablet in Japanese adult patients with AA. The treatment appeared to be efficacious in patients requiring rescue medication (ie, short-acting β2-agonist) at baseline in the efficacy assessment using asthma exacerbation during inhaled corticosteroid reduction (JapicCTI number 121847).

ConclusionsThe present study allowed the identification of different protein areas specific to these studied groups. The protein spots of interest were identified by UHPLC-MS/MS. It has been possible to establish a link between a specific symptomatology and the newly identified responsible allergens.

ConclusionThe clinical history is essential for the allergological workup and therapeutic decision on Hymenoptera venom allergies. A short latency time and the absence of skin symptoms are indicators for severe systemic sting reactions, followed by the patient ’s age and baseline serum tryptase levels.

Authors: Bilò MB, Tontini C, Martini M, Corsi A, Agolini S, Antonicelli L Abstract Summary: Hymenoptera venom allergy (HVA) is the most frequent cause of anaphylaxis in Europe, accounting for most of the severe reactions occurring in adults, and being the second cause of anaphylaxis in children. Prevention of further episodes in patients who developed a systemic reaction (SR) is based on the correct management of the allergic emergency, the referral to an allergist for a correct diagnosis, prescription of adrenaline auto-injectors (AAI) and specific venom immunotherapy (VIT), if recommended. Diagnosis is bas...

ConclusionsSM are a  common sensitization in the study population and should be included in standard skin prick test arrays. Cross sensitization to house dust mites is limited and nasal symptoms are most frequent. Nasal provocation testing is necessary to secure clinical diagnosis of allergy and further research is ne eded to evaluate the clinical relevance of the high sensitization rates found for intradermal testing.

CONCLUSION: PFS can be seen in children who are followed up for pollen-induced AR. The symptoms of PFS are usually mild and transient. However, comprehensive evaluation of patients is important since serious systemic reactions such as anaphylaxis can also be observed. PMID: 31601505 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
