Anaphylactic shock to iodinated contrast media: not so rare after all
Eur Ann Allergy Clin Immunol. 2021 Sep 15. doi: 10.23822/EurAnnACI.1764-1489.210. Online ahead of print.NO ABSTRACTPMID:34523871 | DOI:10.23822/EurAnnACI.1764-1489.210
Although there is a general perception that the prevalence of food allergy is increasing, data supporting this are limited. Food is the least common cause of fatal anaphylaxis, and fortunately, is a very rare event; however, it is also unpredictable. There...

Intimacy-related allergic reactions, including anaphylaxis, are under-reported due to social stigma, lack of awareness, and misdiagnosis. The differential diagnosis for intimacy-related anaphylaxis is extensiv...
Currently there is no systematic review and meta-analysis of the global incidence rates of anaphylactic and nonanaphylactic reactions to SARS-CoV-2 vaccines in the general adult population.
Hautarzt. 2021 Oct 15. doi: 10.1007/s00105-021-04894-2. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTAnaphylaxis is a suddenly occurring potentially life-threatening systemic allergic reaction. In childhood, food allergens play a major role but insect stings and drugs are also potential triggers. The symptoms appear in minutes up to few hours on the skin, airways, gastrointestinal tract and/or the cardiovascular system. Intramuscular adrenaline is the drug of first choice due to its rapid effectiveness and its low side effect potential. A detailed patient history and the determination of potential IgE antibodies must be carried out to id...
ConclusionTo conclude, this work confirms the unprecedented opportunities of metabolomics and supports the in-depth pathophysiological qualification in the quest towards improved diagnostic and prognostic biomarkers for IgE-FA.This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved
CONCLUSION: This study documented the clinical characteristics and immunological profiles of 21 children with perilla seed allergy. Our results suggest that oleosin is one of the major allergens in perilla seeds.PMID:34643183 | DOI:10.18176/jiaci.0756
Immediate allergic reactions compatible with anaphylaxis have been reported severalfold higher with the coronavirus 19 disease (COVID-19) vaccine than other vaccines. It is hypothesized that immunoglobulin E (IgE) mediated reactions to polyethylene glycol (PEG) 2000, an excipient in the mRNA vaccines (such as Pfizer and Moderna) used to stabilize the lipid nanoparticle, are responsible for reported COVID-19 vaccine reactions.1 COVID-19 vaccine-induced anaphylaxis has only been linked to PEG allergy in few patients to date2,3, with many more patients having allergic reactions, making other mechanisms more likely.
CONCLUSION: The side effects experienced after Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccines are generally self-limiting and mild, with no anaphylaxis reported.PMID:34625758 | DOI:10.47102/annals-acadmedsg.2021160
