Breakthrough reactions during rapid drug desensitization: Clinical outcome and risk factors
Recently, new diagnostic tools and therapeutic agents have significantly increased the survival rate of cancer patients compared to that in the past. As the number of cancer survivors exposed to multiple courses of chemotherapy increases, more patients become sensitized to chemotherapeutic agents and suffer from hypersensitivity reactions (HSRs).1-3 HSRs to chemotherapeutic agents range from mild cutaneous urticaria to severe reactions, such as life-threatening anaphylaxis, and even death.4 Most HSRs are unpredictable, such that they threaten the safety of patients; moreover, they can be uncontrollable, and severe HSRs lim...

Phenotypes favoring fractional exhaled nitric oxide discordance vs guideline based uncontrolled asthma
A possible explanation for the poor response to inhaled corticosteroids (ICS) in approximately 45% of asthmatic children1 may be the weak association between guideline-based criteria for asthma control and ongoing allergic airway inflammation,2, 3 which may, if unrecognized in asymptomatic patients, result in serious sequelae, including airway remodeling.4 Thus, assessing airway inflammation has the potential to provide additional information to guidelines alone, which could be clinically useful in managing asthma.

Beer allergy: when malt is the culprit
Beer is the most widely consumed alcoholic beverage in the world and beer allergy is rare1-3. The fundamental ingredients of beer according to the Bavarian Purity Law include barley malt, hops, yeast and water but each individual beer may differ in malt content and brewing procedures4. Malt is obtained by roasting germinated cereal and is essential to beer flavouring3. In beer-allergic subjects the most frequent allergenic sources involved are cereals, particularly barley malt2 and wheat3. Pan-allergens, namely lipid transfer proteins (LTP) have been also involved5. (Source: Annals of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology)

Successful Oral Desensitization with Dasatinib in Delayed Cutaneous Hypersensitivity Reactions
Dasatinib (Bristol-Myers Squibb) is a short-acting inhibitor of multiple tyrosine kinases which is used orally in treatment of chronic myeloid leukemia, Philadelphia-chromosome positive acute Lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), solid tumors and systemic mastocytosis [1]. Despite acceptable safety profile of dasatinib, cutaneous adverse reactions including xerosis, keratosis pilaris, pruritus, maculopapular/exfoliative rashes, edema, alopecia may limit its use in crucial conditions [2]. In case of drug-related cutaneous rashes, the primary approach is withdrawal of the culprit agent and introduction of supportive treatment. (Sour...

Standardization of the nasal cytology in the work-up of allergic rhinitis.
Allergic rhinitis (AR) is a common disorder characterized by typical nasal symptoms and IgE-mediated inflammation (1). Nasal type 2 inflammation is initiated by the causal allergen exposure (2). Mediators and cytokines are deeply involved in the cascade of inflammatory phenomena. A typical pattern of inflammatory cells infiltrates the nasal mucosa, including eosinophils, neutrophils, and mast cells. However, the paradigmatic characteristic of allergic inflammation is its reversibility as it depends on the allergen exposure. (Source: Annals of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology)

Inverse association of asthma and hay fever with cancer in the 2015 National Health Interview Survey database
Although immune hyperresponsiveness to common inhaled antigens is inherent to allergy and asthma, with allergens perceived as danger signals,1 there is an active immune underreactivity promulgated by cancer cells,2 which allows progression of this potentially fatal disease process. How one immunologic extreme relates to the clinical expression of the other immunologic extreme has not been established. (Source: Annals of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology)

Omalizumab for Chronic Urticaria in Children Less than 12 Years of Age: A Systematic Review.
Chronic urticaria (CU), defined by recurrent wheals, angioedema, or both lasting more than six weeks, is subclassified into chronic spontaneous urticaria (CSU) and inducible urticaria (IndU) 1. CU is disabling and impairs work and school performance 1. Current treatment guidelines recommend a stepwise approach starting with escalating doses of non-sedating antihistamines 1. Omalizumab (anti-IgE monoclonal antibody) is approved as an add-on therapy for patients (12 years and older) with antihistamine resistant CSU; however, omalizumab is not approved for CSU in children less than 12 years of age 2.

High pressure epinephrine auto-injector (HPEAI) Epipen®/EpipenJr® (4) is the most commonly prescribed EAIs, in North America and Europe. Other HPEAI are Jext® (5) and Auvi-Q® (6). These EAIs require high pressure to release the needle and the dose of epinephrine.

Does inhaler technique align with confidence among African-American children and their parents?
Asthma prevalence and its related morbidity is two to three times higher among African-American children compared to white youth.1 A key method for reducing asthma-related morbidity is quick-relief and controller medications delivered through respiratory inhaler devices. However, few children use inhalers correctly, which results in negative effects on asthma control, quality of life, and morbidity,2 thus, inhaler education is critical.

Human milk (HM) is not only considered the ideal nutrition source for term infants during the first six months of life by providing nutrients needed for growth and development 1, but it also provides antimicrobial and immunomodulatory factors providing defense against infections 2, 3. Thereby, breastfeeding provides continued exposure to the mother ’s immune system during the crucial window of first few months of life, when the infant’s immune system is constantly developing. However, the immunomodulatory make up of HM has not been well-characterized and demonstrates a great deal of variability between mothers,...

Hypersensitivity pneumonitis (HP) is an immunologically-mediated lung disorder caused by inhalation of antigens stimulating primarily a lymphocytic inflammation in the peripheral airways and interstitial tissue. Causative antigens have been historically recognized in occupational settings1. However, as more safety measures have been initiated to reduce exposure in the workplace, the home has become the primary causative environment.1-7 The home is a complex environment influenced by geographic location, architectural design, contents and lifestyles of the inhabitants.

Atopic dermatitis (AD) is a common, chronic inflammatory skin disease that affects children and adults. Several international studies examined the incidence of AD and found a broad range across different countries and periods of observation (from 2,150 per 100,000 person-years in Denmark 1997-20111 to 17,600 per 100,000 person-years in Germany 19972. While no studies examined the incidence of AD in the United States (US), several studies explored AD prevalence. The US prevalence of AD was 12% (2012 National Health Interview Survey [NHIS]) to 13% (2007-2008 National Survey of Children ’s Health [NSCH]) in children (ag...
