The relationship between latitude and allergic gastroenteritis hospital admissions in New Zealand infants

Recent epidemiological studies suggest that non-IgE-mediated childhood food allergic disorders such as eosinophilic esophagitis (EOE), celiac disease and allergic gastroenteritis (AG), may be increasing in parallel with previously observed increases in childhood IgE-mediated food allergy (FA) and food-induced anaphylaxis (FIA)1-4. The term AG encompasses food protein induced enterocolitis syndrome (FPIES), eosinophilic enteritis and colitis, food protein induced enteropathy, food hypersensitivity enteritis and colitis, but not EOE.

Authors: Authried G, Prasad SC, Rasmussen ER, Bygum A Abstract Summary: A subset of patients with angioedema (AE) and urticaria has histamine releasing autoantibodies. The histamine release test (HR-test) has been used as a tool in chronic urticaria to define the autoimmune subgroup and may possibly guide the clinician to a more personalized therapy, like omalizumab and cyclosporine. The prevalence and value of positive histamine releasing autoantibodies in monosymptomatic AE is sparsely described in the literature. The purpose of this study was to report the prevalence of positive histamine releasing autoantibodie...

Here, we report a novel immunomagnetic beads-derived enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) method which employ antibody functionalized graphene oxide (GO) and gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) to amplify the detection signal of PV. The GO and AuNPs are modified with monoclonal antibody (mAb) and HRP-labeled secondary antibody respectively to det...

Authors: Joseph CL, Mahajan P, Buzzelli-Stokes S, Jacobsen G, Johnson DA, Duffy E, Williams R, Suzanne H, Zoratti E, Ownby DR, Johnson CC, Lu M Abstract The recruitment setting plays a key role in the evaluation of behavioral interventions. We evaluated a behavioral intervention for urban adolescents with asthma in three randomized trials conducted separately in three different settings over the course of 8 years. We hypothesized that characteristics of trial participants recruited from the ED and clinic settings would be significantly different from that of youth participating in the school-based trials. The inter...

House dust mite induces Sonic hedgehog signaling that mediates epithelial‑mesenchymal transition in human bronchial epithelial cells. Mol Med Rep. 2019 Sep 26;: Authors: Zou Y, Song W, Zhou L, Mao Y, Hong W Abstract Epithelial‑mesenchymal transition (EMT) provides a valuable source of fibroblasts that produce extracellular matrix in airway walls. The Sonic hedgehog (SHH) signaling pathway plays an essential role in regulating tissue turnover and homeostasis. SHH is strikingly upregulated in the bronchial epithelia during asthma. Snail1 is a major target of SHH signaling, which regulates EMT and fib...

Serum amyloid A is involved in lipid metabolism, inflammatory reactions, granuloma formation, and cancerogenesis. Additionally, serum amyloid A is involved in the pathogenesis of different autoimmune lung diseases. The levels of serum amyloid A has been evaluated in biological fluids of patients with different...
