Conclusions. Olea europaea SCIT (Allergovac® depot ROXALL Medicina España S.A.) showed a good safety and tolerability profile. Immunological changes with induction of blocking IgG and decreases in cutaneous reactivity were detected in the patients. PMID: 31789492 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
This study is a retrospective analysis of consecutive children (0-18 years-old) with suspected CMA tested with SPT and sIgE for cow's milk (CM) and its fractions between 2016-2017. CMA diagnosis was defined by a positive oral food challenge or a highly suggestive clinical history of CMA and SPT and/or sIgE positive to CM and/or its fractions. One hundred and five patients were included, 58% males with a median age of 2.5 (P25-P75:1-6) years and the diagnosis was confirmed in 83 patients (79%). The variables associated with CMA diagnosis were SPT with CM (p minor 0,05) and casein (p minor 0,05) and all sIgE to CM and its fr...
Conclusion. Adherence rate in our study was 77%. Economic reasons were the main cause of abandonment in the first year, while the perception of non improvement was the main reason for abandonment in subsequent years. Adequate information on SCIT prescribing and rigorous monitoring of patients during the treatment can improve adherence. PMID: 31789490 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Authors: Saenza De San Pedro A, Lopes MP, Sokolova A, Abreu C, Lopes C Abstract Summary: Atopic Dermatitis (AD) affects both children and adults and is a serious health concern in many countries. AD is a complex disease with host and environmental factors underlying its pathology. Its treatment is multidimensional reflecting the diverse nature of its triggers and includes emollients, topical steroids and calcineurin inhibitors among others. Immunological dysfunction can be addressed broadly with systemic immunosupressors and specifically with monoclonal antibodies. Dupilumab, which targets IL-4 and IL-13 was grante...
DISCUSSION: Since 2014, the worldwide "epidemic" of sensitization to MI has been subsiding in Central Europe, thanks to corresponding restrictions on use. Since 2008, there is no longer any widespread exposure to MDBGN; the new, higher test concentration elicits many false-positive test reactions and explains the sudden rise in positive patch test reactions since 2016. Despite widespread use, phenoxyethanol, benzoates, benzyl alcohol, parabens and sorbates rarely cause allergic reactions. Therefore, they can be recommended for cosmetics from the epidemiological-allergological point of view. PMID: 31792581 [Pu...
