Risk Factors for Hen’s Egg Allergy in Europe: EuroPrevall birth cohort

ConclusionsSimilar to peanut allergy, eczema was strongly associated with egg allergy development and the association increased with increasing eczema severity. The age of introduction of dietary egg was not a risk factor. The potential role of antibiotics in early life as a risk factor for egg allergy needs further examination.

Publication date: Available online 18 November 2019Source: The Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology: In PracticeAuthor(s): Puja Sood Rajani, Hayley Martin, Marion Groetch, Kirsi M. 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...

Conclusions: In asthma and allergy, multimorbidity and polypharmacy are major concerns. Disease severity, drug use, and costs increased with multimorbid conditions. To reduce the burden, allergy management should be better integrated and more comprehensive.Int Arch Allergy Immunol

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 ...

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]

(Food Allergy Research&Education) In a recently published study supported by Food Allergy Research&Education, researchers at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center have described a signaling pathway that can contribute to the dangerous circulatory and respiratory symptoms of anaphylaxis. The pathway, which promotes fluid loss from blood vessels into surrounding tissues, includes the interleukin-4 receptor, a protein that is targeted by a drug already approved to treat moderate to severe eczema. These findings hold promise for a treatment to make anaphylaxis less deadly.

Conclusions Early-onset eczema, Asian background, and family history of allergic disease were associated with an increased risk of food allergy, whereas dog exposure in early life reduced the risk in 10- to14-year-old adolescents. Factors predicting food allergy risk in an adolescent population-based cohort appear remarkably similar to those predicting early-onset food allergy in infancy.
