CONCLUSIONS: Childhood asthma is more prevalent in regional Tasmania compared with national estimates, especially among indigenous children. This appears not to be driven by an allergic response. Also, a significant proportion of children are likely to have undiagnosed asthma which has implications for rural health service delivery. PMID: 30311828 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSIONS: This was the first nationwide study of PFAS in Korea. The prevalence of PFAS was 41.7%, and 8.9% of the PFAS patients had anaphylaxis. These results will provide clinically useful information to physicians. PMID: 30306747 [PubMed]
Authors: Sharma G, Im SH Abstract The prevalence of allergic disorders has dramatically increased over the past decade, particularly in developed countries. Apart from gastrointestinal disorders, neoplasia, genital and dermatological diseases etc., dysregulation of gut microbiota (dysbiosis) has also been found to be associated with increased risk of allergies. Probiotics are increasingly being employed to correct dysbiosis and, in turn, to modulate allergic diseases. However, several factors like strain variations and effector metabolites or component of them in a bacterial species can affect the efficacy of those...

Conclusions: Our data suggest that our FPIES OFC protocol is safe. Early administration of IVF may prevent the development of hypotension. It is difficult to stratify the risk of severe or delayed reaction based on patient characteristics, and more data are needed to identify those appropriate for home introduction.

Conclusionsand clinical relevance: It showed, for the first time, that consumption of food products by peanut-allergic patients, including those with PAL, is modulated by factors related to anxiety such as label reading and knowledge of threshold and concomitant tree nut allergy. Knowledge of peanut-allergic food behaviours will make it possible to improve risk assessment and help allergists and risk managers to make diet advices.
