Higher Risk of Food Allergy Diagnosis and Increased Objective Testing for Asian Children with Atopic Dermatitis
Atopic dermatitis (AD) is a known risk factor for the development of food allergy. Prior work demonstrated racial/ethnic disparities in the diagnosis of food allergy. However, limited data has been reported regarding the diagnosis of food allergy among Asian Americans, particularly in the high-risk population of children with AD.

Does detection of S.aureus and resistance to antistaphylococcal drugs in blood cultures of hospitalized patients for infected atopic dermatitis change the hospitalization profile?
S.aureus infection is a constant complication in patients with Atopic Dermatitis (AD) and leads to hospitalizations and use of broad-spectrum antibiotics (AB). We hypothesized that the detection of S.aureus in blood cultures (BC) and the pattern of antimicrobial resistance in patients hospitalized for infected AD impacts their clinical and laboratory parameters.

Allergy, Respiratory Symptoms, And Contact Dermatitis Are Occupational Risks Among Prosthodontists
Mercury in amalgams, acrylate resins in oral prosthetics, and latex, have been associated with allergic contact dermatitis in dentists. Bisphenol-A (BPA) has been linked to atopic dermatitis in children. Prosthodontists may be at higher risk of contact dermatitis due to exposure to amalgams, acrylic resins and BPA as restorative procedure specialists. Dentists may be at higher risk of respiratory symptoms because the most common occupation in an idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis registry was dentistry.

Dupilumab Reduction of IgE Levels and Probability of Atopic Dermatitis Flares – Analysis of A Randomized Placebo-Controlled 52-Week Study
IgE levels are often elevated in patients with atopic dermatitis (AD) but the clinical relevance of reducing IgE levels in patients with AD remains unclear. This analysis reports the impact of dupilumab treatment on total IgE levels in association with the probability of having flares in patients with moderate-to-severe AD.

Common Contact Allergens Missed by the TRUE ™ Test in an Allergy Practice
Patch testing (PT) is the gold standard for identifying clinically relevant allergens responsible for allergic contact dermatitis (ACD). Although the Thin-Layer Rapid Use Epicutaneous (TRUE ™) test is the only patch test approved by the Food and Drug Administration, this limited series can miss specific allergens otherwise detected in an extended panel.

Factors Associated with Severity of Atopic Dermatitis and Quality of Life Deterioration in a Middle-Income Tropical Country
Atopic dermatitis (AD) is the most common inflammatory skin condition worldwide with significant geographical variation and various disease drivers, yet there are few studies on the incidence and burden of AD in middle/low-income countries and tropical climates. We aim to characterize the association between demographic, clinical, environmental, and socioeconomic factors that affect the severity of AD in Colombia, a middle-income tropical country.

Patient Reported Outcomes Measures (PROMs) in atopic dermatitis: perceptions and level of satisfaction.
AD's chronic and relapsing-remitting course makes management difficult. The patient-reported outcomes (PROMs) are essential for clinical practice and shared decision-making between patients and caregivers to lessen the disease burden and adjust treatment. However, there is still a gap in the literature regarding the attitudes AD patients have toward the use of PROMs during consultation. That is why our aim is to assess patients' perceptions, experiences, and level of satisfaction with the use of PROMs in AD. (Source: Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology)
