Authors: Tom WL Abstract Many children with atopic dermatitis also have an allergy to one or more foods, but the presence of these two conditions in an individual does not necessarily indicate a causal link between them. Testing and interpretation, sometimes with specialist consultation, may be required to discern whether food allergy is present in a child with atopic dermatitis and-if it is present-whether the food is triggering or exacerbating signs and symptoms of atopic dermatitis. Recent milestone trials have demonstrated that early introduction of peanuts can reduce the development of peanut allergy in at-ris...

Recent studies suggest that the sensitization to food allergens commonly occur through the skin. We previously established a mouse model of epicutaneous sensitization using ovalbumin (OVA). BALB/c mice are sensitized by three-time application of OVA to tape-stripped skin (1-week sensitization at 2-week intervals) and oral challenge of OVA undertaken. Allergic symptoms such as fall of rectal temperature are observed after oral challenge (Yu R et al, Experimental Dermatology. 2017;26:778-784). In the present study, we examined whether oral administration of food is effective for the prevention and treatment of food allergy c...

The transition from adolescence to young adulthood marks a developmental period where responsibility for management of chronic conditions such as food allergy shifts from the caregiver to the young adult. Fatal food-induced anaphylaxis is most common among adolescents and young adults. However, colleges are currently not well-positioned to provide integrated support for students with food allergies.

AbstractDevelopment of active therapies for IgE-mediated food allergy is a critical action step toward alleviating the adverse medical, psychosocial, and economic burdens on affected patients and families. Significant progress has been observed specifically in the application of single-allergen oral and sublingual immunotherapy for treatment of IgE-mediated food allergy, with emphasis on milk, egg, and peanut as the primary allergens. Oral immunotherapy (OIT) has demonstrated efficacy in promoting immunomodulatory effects that lead to the clinical outcome of desensitization, defined as reduced reactivity while on active OI...
