Shared prenatal impacts among childhood asthma, allergic rhinitis and atopic dermatitis: a population-based study

Increasing prevalence of childhood allergic diseases including asthma is a global health concern, and we aimed to investigate prenatal risk factors for childhood asthma and to address the potential shared pren...

CONCLUSIONS: UR-SCIT with tyrosine-adsorbed HDM extract conducted in an outpatient clinic was tolerable in patients with AD and AR. UR-SCIT can be a useful method to start a SCIT in patients with AD and AR. PMID: 31552719 [PubMed]

AbstractPurpose of reviewThe aim of this paper is to review and summarise the current knowledge of prevention of house dust mite (HDM)-induced allergic rhinitis (AR).Recent findingsAR can be either classified as seasonal/intermittent (for example hay fever occurring summer and autumn) or perennial/persistent (occurring throughout the year). The commonest trigger for seasonal AR is pollen whereas HDMs are the key allergic trigger for perennial AR. HDMs are a recognised indoor allergen that is crucial in the development of AR, asthma, and atopic dermatitis.SummaryPreventive strategies have gained acceptance for the managemen...

Atopic dermatitis (AD) is a chronic, relapsing disease that typically manifests in childhood and improves with age. Studies have demonstrated that the presence of AD increases the risk of developing food allergy, allergic rhinitis, and asthma later in life. Although children with AD are more likely to produce allergen-specific immunoglobulin E, there is conflicting evidence that allergen avoidance improves disease severity. Furthermore, food-elimination diets in patients with AD may increase the risk of developing immediate, life-threatening reactions to the removed food. The most effective treatments of AD aim to repair a...

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...

Conclusions: Children with IBD should be constantly monitored by medical professionals, not only due to the underlying disease but also due to a possible concomitant allergic disease. PMID: 31333345 [PubMed]

Discussion Atopic dermatitis (AD) has a prevalence of 3-5% in the overall U.S. population but is increasing with an estimated 10-15% lifetime risk in childhood. It is even more common in children of color with a prevalence in African-American/black children of 17% and Hispanic children of 14%. Health care utilization data also appears to support more severe disease in children of color also. Atopic dermatitis or eczema is a common dermatological skin problem which characteristically is a pruritic, papular eruption with erythema. Like most papulosquamous eruptions it often occurs in intertrigenous areas in people with alle...

Authors: Čepelak I, Dodig S, Pavić I Abstract There is an increasing number of experimental, genetic and clinical evidence of atopic dermatitis expression as a pre-condition for later development of other atopic diseases such as asthma, food allergy and allergic rhinitis. Atopic dermatitis is a heterogeneous, recurrent childhood disease, also present in the adult age. It is increasingly attributed to systemic features and is characterized by immunological and skin barrier integrity and function dysregulation. To maintain the protective function of the skin barrier, in particular the maintenance of pH, hydration a...

The prevalence of allergic diseases such as asthma, allergic rhinitis, food allergy and atopic dermatitis has increased dramatically in recent decades. Conventional therapies for allergy can induce undesirable effects and hence patients tend to seek for natural compounds as alternative medicine. Considering the fact above, there is an urgency to discover potential medicinal plants as future candidates in the development of novel anti-allergic therapeutic agents. Lamiaceae family, the mint family, is a diverse plant family which encompasses more than 7000 species and with a cosmopolitan distribution. A number of species fro...
