Conclusion: FHRs to seafish in AD patients are associated with persistent eczematic lesions and with the higher occurrence of sensitization to fungi and reactions to celery. The occurrence of bronchial asthma, rhinitis, positive family history, and onset of AD under 5 years of age is higher in patients with reactions to seafish, but the difference is not statistically significant.

We greatly appreciate the published findings by Perkin et  al1 and agree these data should further inform infant feeding guidelines. However, to best interpret these outcomes with respect to food allergy prevention recommendations, we find it helpful to review study definitions and study design nuances of both the Learning Early about Peanut (LEAP) and En quiring About Tolerance (EAT) trials.2,3 We believe the conclusion that low-risk infants do not benefit from allergenic food introduction is overstated.

This study aimed to determine serum total IgE level, eosinophil count, and serum level of IFN-γ, in relation to the age of atopic patients and genotyping of the IFN-γ gene at +874 T/A in relation to serum IFN-γ level. As well as comparing of IFN-γ concentrations of atopic patients according to genotypes in atopic patients and apparently healthy control. The studied groups were 25 apparently healthy controls and 75 atopic patients (25 asthma patients, 25 allergic rhinitis patients and 25 atopic dermatitis patients). The obtained results showed that, the prevalence of atopic diseases occurred in the...

Publication date: April 2020Source: Journal of Functional Foods, Volume 67Author(s): Yoshinori Mine, Kaustav Majumder, Yan Jin, Yuhan ZengAbstractThe aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of Rubus suavissimus S. Lee extract against hen egg ovalbumin (OVA)-induced allergic response in mice. BALB/c mice were sensitized with OVA via intraperitoneal injection for four weeks and subsequently administered the different doses of Rubus suavissimus S. Lee extract (0.1 0.5 and 1.0% w/v) in drinking water. We demonstrated that Rubus suavissimus S. Lee extract can attenuate OVA allergic response in mice by inducing immune dese...
