Conclusions. This study brings additional evidences of interest to investigate IgE, D-dimer serum/plasma levels and basophil blood counts in patients with CSU as they could be correlated to disease activity, response to treatment and/or autoimmunity.

DISCUSSION: The decline of positive test reactions to the fragrance mixes is mainly due to the reduced use of oakmoss containing atranol and chloroatranol, and HICC. Use of these substances in cosmetic products was prohibited within the EU starting in August 2019. Therefore, a further decline of the sensitization frequencies can be expected. A differentiated consideration of the individual fragrances under allergological aspects is urgently required. PMID: 31965209 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Wagner N, Kamann S, Oppel E Abstract The design and development of insulin pumps and various glucose sensor systems has an enormous impact on life quality of diabetic patients. Surveillance and therapy of diabetes has improved due to the new diabetic devices, which are affixed to the patients' skin for several days. Since their introduction, irritant and allergic contact dermatitis have been frequently reported. Patients often acquire contact sensitization to isobornyl acrylate, N,N-dimethylacrylamide or formerly to 2‑ethyl-cyanoacrylate. These contact allergens were found in the patch, in the glue to af...

CONCLUSION: Although there is still a need for research, many parts of the contact allergy pathogenesis are now better understood. In particular, the essential role of the innate immune response not only for the sensitization but also for the elicitation phase seems to be established. Implementation of today's knowledge into new therapeutic approaches and their application testing remains important and exciting. PMID: 31965202 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

This study aims to determine the current food allergy training practices, challenges and future food allergy training needs of foodservices in England. A postal survey was conducted among 500 foodservice operators in North West England. The questionnaire is divided into 5 sections: (i) demographics; (ii) current food allergy training practices; (iii) importance of food allergy training topics; (iv) challenges faced by restaurants when training foodservice staff; and (v) future food allergy training. Out of the 30 restaurants, only one restaurant did not carry out food allergy training. More than 70% of the restaurants freq...
