M301 allergic reaction while making burgers —blame it on the dog!

A 5-year-old girl with history of significant eczema, severe dog allergy (IgE>100), and anaphylactic allergy to egg and treenuts developed urticaria on her bilateral arms after preparing hamburger patties. No other ingredients, such as egg, were handled. She had previously tolerated cooked beef and had no history of milk allergy.

This study — known as the Learning Early About Peanut or LEAP trial — showed that children at high risk of developing peanut allergies who are introduced to peanuts at 4 months to 6 months old had a significantly lower risk of developing a peanut allergy than those who waited until they were 5 years; 1.9% of the kids who had peanuts early developed an allergy, compared with 13.7% of the kids who waited. The LEAP trial formed the basis for Monday’s new recommendations, which encourage the early introduction of peanut products in infants at high risk for allergies. But most babies are not at high risk, and ...

For millions of children who have peanut allergies, mealtimes can be deadly. And for years, doctors have advised parents to keep peanut products away from children thought to be at high risk.  But new guidelines issued Thursday state that infants should be introduced to peanut products as early as 4 months old if they appear to be at high risk of developing food allergies. A panel of experts convened by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases says that introducing peanuts early in life can actually help prevent the development of peanut allergies. The new recommendations encourage...

ConclusionsThis analysis of Read codes use suggests that, introduction of the more detailed SNOMED‐CT, in isolation, will not improve the quality of allergy coding in Scottish primary care. The introduction of SNOMED‐CT should be accompanied by initiatives aimed at improving coding quality, such as the definition of terms/codes, availability of terminology browsers, a recommended list of codes and mechanisms to incentivize detailed coding of the condition and the underlying allergic trigger.This article is protected by copyright.

This review provides an overview of the use of antihistamines in children. We discuss types of histamine receptors and their mechanism of action, absorption, onset and duration of action of first-generation and second-generation H(1)-antihistamines, as well as elimination of H(1)-antihistamines which has important implications for dosing in children. The rationale for the use of H(1)-antihistamines is explored for the relief of histamine-mediated symptoms in a variety of allergic conditions including: non-anaphylactic allergic reactions, atopic eczema (AE), allergic rhinitis (AR) and conjunctivitis, chronic spontaneous urt...

Conclusion This well-designed randomised controlled trial has found that the early introduction of regular small amounts of peanut protein to infants at high risk of having allergies reduced the proportion who developed a peanut allergy by age five, compared to avoiding peanuts completely. The study looked at a group of infants who were at a particularly high risk of going on to develop food allergies, because they already had severe eczema or an allergy to eggs, or both. It is important to know that this study was not about treating infants or children who already had a peanut allergy. Those who showed a strong reaction ...
