First Real-World Safety Analysis of Preschool Peanut Oral Immunotherapy
ConclusionsWe are the first group to describe preschool P-OIT in a real-world multicenter setting. The treatment appears to be safe for the vast majority of patients because symptoms were generally mild and very few reactions received epinephrine; however, life-threatening reactions in a minority of patients (0.4%) can still occur.

What is Chronic Cough? Terminology
Publication date: Available online 17 April 2019Source: The Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology: In PracticeAuthor(s): Lorcan McGarvey, Peter G. GibsonAbstractTerminology used to define clinical cough is based on features such as duration, underlying causes and associated characteristics such as whether the cough is ‘dry’ or ‘productive’. Terms such as ‘Refractory Chronic Cough’, ‘Unexplained Chronic Cough’ and ‘Idiopathic Cough’ are commonly used to describe a cough that persists despite extensive investigation and therapeutic trials. The use of these term...

ConclusionsAutoimmune disorders are the main clinical manifestations of LRBA deficiency. Therefore, LRBA deficiency should be included in the list of monogenic autoimmune diseases and screening for LRBA mutations should be routinely performed for patients with these conditions.

Radiocontrast media hypersensitivity: skin testing differentiates allergy from non-allergic reactions and identifies a safe alternative as proven by intravenous provocation
ConclusionsThe diagnostic sensitivity of intradermal RCM testing to identify allergic patients is high in both, immediate-type and delayed-type RCM allergy. Intravenous provocation with a skin test-negative RCM is safe and enables identification of a tolerated alternative RCM. Additional skin testing of iodine solution is required to identify patients with iodine allergy. (Source: The Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology: In Practice)

Mast Cell Activation Syndrome and Mastocytosis: Initial Treatment Options and Long-Term Management
Publication date: April 2019Source: The Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology: In Practice, Volume 7, Issue 4Author(s): Mariana Castells, Joseph ButterfieldPatients with clonal mast cell activation syndromes (MCAS) including cutaneous and systemic mastocytosis (SM) may present with symptoms of mast cell activation, but in addition can have organ damage from the local effects of tissue infiltration by clonal mast cells. Patients with nonclonal MCAS may have chronic or episodic mast cell activation symptoms with an increase in serum tryptase and/or urinary metabolites of histamine, prostaglandin D2, and leukotrienes.

Doctor, I Think I Am Suffering from MCAS: Differential Diagnosis and Separating Facts from Fiction
Publication date: April 2019Source: The Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology: In Practice, Volume 7, Issue 4Author(s): Peter Valent, Cem AkinMast cell activation syndrome (MCAS) is a rare condition defined by a severe systemic reaction to mast cell (MC)-derived mediators. Most cases present with clinical signs of anaphylaxis, and some have an underlying IgE-dependent allergy. A primary MC disease (mastocytosis) may also be detected. Severe recurrent MCAS episodes requiring intensive care or even resuscitation are typically found in patients who suffer from both mastocytosis and allergy against certain triggers, such ...

Insect Sting Anaphylaxis—Or Mastocytosis—Or Something Else?
Publication date: April 2019Source: The Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology: In Practice, Volume 7, Issue 4Author(s): David B.K. Golden, Melody C. CarterInsect sting anaphylaxis and mast cell disorders are intertwined in a specific and unusual way. There may be specific subsets of clonal mast cell disorders that are predisposed to sting anaphylaxis. The clinical characteristics of the sting reactions should raise suspicion of underlying mastocytosis (eg, hypotension without hives especially in a male). A baseline serum tryptase level is helpful in the evaluation of patients with insect sting anaphylaxis because it c...
