Food Allergy Prevention: More Than Peanut

Publication date: January 2020Source: The Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology: In Practice, Volume 8, Issue 1Author(s): Michael R. Perkin, Alkis Togias, Jennifer Koplin, Scott SichererGiven an apparent increase in food allergies worldwide, the focus on prevention strategies has intensified. Following the Learning Early About Peanut study, there is now a widespread acceptance that peanut should be introduced promptly into the diet of high-risk infants. However, most food allergies are caused by triggers other than peanut and additional prevention strategies are being evaluated. The appreciation of the role of an impaired skin barrier in the process of food sensitization and subsequent allergy has led to a spectrum of dermatologically orientated studies. Other prevention strategies address the role of the microbiome, dietary components, and other modifiable risk factors. With regard to early introduction of foods other than peanut, studies are heterogeneous in design and governmental and professional society response to the early introduction trials has varied, ranging from new guidelines confining advice specifically to peanut, to ones recommending prompt introduction of a broad spectrum of allergenic foods. Much remains to be determined with regard to the acceptability and uptake of the new guidelines and their impact on infant feeding behavior and food allergy outcomes. This review discusses the panoply of prevention approaches, their promise, and limitations.

Authors: Ebo DG, Bridts CH, Rihs HP Abstract INTRODUCTION: IgE-mediated Hevea latex allergy and associated food-allergies constitute a significant health issue with serious consequences of diagnostic error. Hence, there is need for more reliable confirmatory diagnostics.Areas covered: Here, we summarize the major limitations of conventional tests using native extracts and describe how piecing together the IgE reactivity profile can benefit correct diagnosis in difficult cases in whom conventional tests yield equivocal or negative results. A diagnostic algorithm integrating traditional sIgE and component resolved di...

We report a case of an 8-year-old boy who developed a cochineal allergy.Current disease history: He has been suffering from atopic dermatitis, bronchial asthma, and food allergies since childhood. At the age of seven, he experienced an unknown anaphylaxis reaction twice. When he was 8 years old, he ate a frankfurter containing hypoallergenic cochineal for the first time; cold sweat, intraoral discomfort, respiratory distress, and urticaria appeared throughout the body. His skin prick tests were positive, with a result of 2+to frankfurter and cochineal dyes (color value 0.1 and 0.01). In the immunoblot assay, binding of IgE...

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...

Type I allergic hypersensitivity disorders (atopy) including asthma, atopic dermatitis, allergic rhinitis, and food allergy are on the rise in developed and developing countries. Engineered nanomaterials (ENMs) span a large spectrum of material compositions including carbonic, metals, polymers, lipid-based, proteins, and peptides and are being utilized in a wide range of industries including healthcare and pharmaceuticals, electronics, construction, and food industry, and yet, regulations for the use of ENMs in consumer products are largely lacking. Prior evidence has demonstrated the potential of ENMs to induce and/or agg...

(Natural News) A person’s nutritional status affects his body’s immune function. Scientific evidence of this has sparked interest in the possible role dietary factors play in the pathogenesis of skin conditions like atopic dermatitis (AD). While food allergies and elimination diets have been studied in relation to atopy — a genetic tendency to develop allergic diseases —...

Deaths due to food allergy are incredibly rare (1), but it is now understood that food is the most commonly identified trigger of anaphylaxis (2). In the United States, deaths from food anaphylaxis are broadly estimated to occur at a rate of 5-200 cases per year (3).
