In this study, we investigated the clinical manifestations and risk factors for anaphylaxis in PFAS in Korean patients with pollinosis. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Data were obtained from a nationwide cross-sectional study that previously reported on PFAS in Korean patients with pollinosis. Data from 273 patients with PFAS were collected, including demographics, list of culprit fruits and vegetables, and clinical manifestations of food allergy. We analyzed 27 anaphylaxis patients and compared them with patients with PFAS with oropharyngeal symptoms only (n=130). RESULTS: The most common cause of anaphylaxis in PFAS wa...

Although atopic dermatitis (AD) has been associated with increased risk of food allergy (FA), this association is not fully understood, and the predictors of severe reactions to foods are not clear. In a review of 18 population-controlled studies, the rate of food sensitization was up to 6 times higher in patients with AD vs healthy controls.1 A recent study identified a potential physiologic mechanism by demonstrating increased skin barrier dysfunction, measured by increased transepidermal water loss and reduced skin filaggrin levels, in patients with AD and FA.

Progestogen hypersensitivity (PH; a.k.a autoimmune progesterone dermatitis) was first reported 50 years ago in a woman whose symptoms correlated with the luteal phase of her menstrual cycle.1 Of note, her symptoms were partially resolved with estrogen administration. Since this case, PH cases manifesting as a spectrum of dermatologic eruptions in the presence or absence of anaphylactic symptoms have been reported. The classic presentation of PH symptoms is an onset beginning during the second half of the cycle when progesterone levels begin to increase.

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]

CONCLUSION: Although the medical literature on progestogen hypersensitivity is limited to case reports and small case series, significant heterogeneity exists in clinical presentation among patients. PMID: 30712576 [PubMed - in process]

In this study, we tried to reveal the allergenic potential of several Asteraceae species. The Asteraceae-related allergy symptoms involve eczema, hay fever, asthma, or even anaphylaxis. Furthermore, the evidence of severe cross-reactivity with food and pollen allergens (PFS) in patients sensitive to Asteraceae allergens have been announced. Further identification and characterization of secondary metabolites and possible allergens in Asteraceae are necessary for the better understanding of Asteraceae-related immune response. The Asteraceae allergy screening panel (the SL mix and the Compositae mix of five plant species) is...

This article provides highlights of the original research published in 2018 issues of JACI: In Practice on the subjects of anaphylaxis, asthma, dermatitis, drug allergy, eosinophilic disorders, food allergy, immune deficiency, rhinitis/upper respiratory disease, and urticaria/angioedema. Within each topic, practical aspects of diagnosis and management are emphasized. Treatments discussed include lifestyle modifications, allergen avoidance therapy, positive and negative effects of pharmacologic therapy, and various forms of immunologic and desensitization management. We hope this review will help readers consolidate and use...
