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...

CONCLUSION: A similar approach to that used for peanut OIT can be taken for non-peanut foods, and for multiple foods simultaneously. High baseline allergy test results are not a contraindication to OIT. PMID: 31494236 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Immunoglobulin E (IgE)-mediated food allergy impacts 8% of US children,1 with peanut allergy prevalence steadily increasing.2 Food allergy affects everyday activities for food-allergic children and their parents,3 which can increase anxiety and reduce health-related quality of life (QoL).4, 5 Although several peanut-desensitization methods are being studied, no approved treatments exist for peanut-allergic patients.6, 7 Current research is mainly focused on efficacy and safety; however, it is important to consider participant QoL following peanut-immunotherapy clinical trials.

CONCLUSIONS: The gender, treatment duration and stage of anaphylactic reaction influenced level of anxiety. The level of feeling of safety was related to the place of living. PMID: 30922038 [PubMed - in process]

AbstractOver the past few years, the rates of food allergies have dramatically increased. As a result, the lives of patients and their caregivers have been dramatically altered. While most attention surrounding food allergies has focused on treatment, less consideration has been given to the mental health ramifications of living with this condition, among them depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress, being bullied, and an overall poorer quality of life. At the same time, patients ’ family lives are often disrupted. Parents of food-allergic children, especially mothers, report anxiety, depression, and a decreased q...
