Pollen count forecast for today - what is the best hay fever treatment?
POLLEN COUNT for most parts of the UK have been forecasted by the Met Office. What is the pollen count for today and how can you better manage your symptoms?
This study explored the efficacy and safety of sublingual immunotherapy (SLIT) with the extracts of Dermatophagoides Farinae (D. farinae Drops) on house dust mites (HDM)-induced atopic dermatitis (AD). 239 patients with HDM-induced AD were recruited and exposure to a multi-centre, randomized, double-blind, and placebo-controlled clinical trials for 36 weeks, which were randomly divided into placebo and sublingual D. farinae Drops groups (high-dose, medium-dose and low-dose), respectively. Statistical analysis was performed in three groups: Full Analysis Set, Per Protocol Set and Safety Set. 48 cases have withdrawn f...
Conclusions: The numerical results revealed the roles of different nasal cavity regions in filtering various types of dust mite allergens with consideration of breathing conditions. PMID: 31431101 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Introduction: Atopic dermatitis (AD) is a chronic, inflammatory and pruritic skin disease, with a prevalence of 1-3% of the adult population. Usually begins in early childhood, progresses with a recurrent course before disappearing at puberty, and may persist to adulthood or present de novo during this period. It is frequently associated with elevated levels of serum IgE, individual or family history of type I allergies, allergic rhinitis and asthma. The therapeutic approach in adult AD patients can be frankly complicated beyond topical treatments, as phototherapy and/or systemic therapies often do not guarantee adequate c...
In conclusion, individuals with ASD-affected siblings were more likely than were the controls to develop atopic diseases, suggesting shared familial mechanisms underlying the two conditions. PMID: 31435817 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
This study provides a useful elucidation for the chemical composition of S. crispa, and demonstrated its potential inhibitory effects on AR, which could promote the research and development of effective agents from natural resources.
CONCLUSION: Oral administration of BV offers remarkable and sustained efficacy in alleviating AR symptoms and may be considered as an alternative therapeutic strategy for patients with persistent AR. BV acts by improving the overall mucosal immunity via restoring and maintaining the normal Th1/Th2 cytokine balance as an underlying cellular/signaling mechanism.
