Current techniques, however, are limited in their ability to elucidate essential immune cell features,including variable sequences of T cell antigen receptors (TCRs) that confer antigen specificity. Here, we present a strategy thatenable...

Understanding and predicting an individual's clinical cross-reactivity to related allergens is a key to better management, treatment and progression of novel therapeutics for food allergy. In food allergy, clinical cross-reactivity is observed in patients reacting to unexpected allergen sources containing the same allergenic protein or antibody binding patches (epitopes), often resulting in severe allergic reactions. Shellfish allergy affects up to 2% of the world population and persists for life in most patients. The diagnosis of shellfish allergy is however often challenging due to reported clinical cross-reactivity to o...

JärvinenAbstractBreastfeeding is currently recommended as the optimal source of nutrition to infants. However, there are several studies that have shown clinical IgE and non-IgE-mediated reactions to foods in exclusively breastfeeding infants, specifically to cow’s milk, egg, peanut, and fish. Literature suggests that antigenic food proteins present in human milk can be found in substantial enough amounts to elicit clinical reac...

The objective of this study was to test the hypothesis that comorbid type 2 immune diseases confer protection against morbidity and mortality due to acute infection. Design: Retrospective cohort study of patients hospitalized with an acute infection between November 2008 and January 2016 using electronic health record data. Setting: Single tertiary-care academic medical center. Patients: Admissions to the hospital through the emergency department with likely infection at the time of admission who may or may not have had a type 2 immune-mediated disease, defined as asthma, allergic rhinitis, atopic dermatitis, or f...

CONCLUSIONS: Children in ECEC benefit from cooks' commitment to providing nutritious foods, however, the requirements to extend their role to respond to increasing demands without relevant system-level support and training puts the children at risk of not being exposed to health-promoting menus and possible errors in providing dietary modifications. ECEC cooks urgently need access to system-level support and training. SO WHAT: Understanding and addressing the barriers experienced by cooks and the complexity of factors that inform their food-related decision-making will sustain the implementation of effective, healthy e...
