Clinical Characteristics of Oral Allergy Syndrome in Children with Atopic Dermatitis and Birch Sensitization: a Single Center Study.
Conclusion: In our study, the prevalence of OAS in children with AD and birch sensitization was 43.5%. Even in the preschool age group, the prevalence of OAS was considerable. Patients with high levels of birch-sIgE were more likely to have OAS. Clinicians should therefore be vigilant about OAS in patients with a high degree of sensitization to birch pollen and even young children if they have birch sensitization.

Lung Lavage Granulocyte Patterns and Clinical Phenotypes in Children with Severe, Therapy-Resistant Asthma
ConclusionsIn children with severe, therapy-resistant asthma, BAL granulocyte patterns and infectious species are associated with novel phenotypic features which can inform pathway-specific revisions in treatment. In 32% of children evaluated, BAL revealed corticosteroid-refractory eosinophilic infiltration amenable to anti-Th2 biological therapies, and in 12%, a treatable bacterial pathogen.

Atopic dermatitis in US adults: from population to healthcare utilization.
ConclusionAdults with AD had low rates of outpatient and high rates of urgent care, ED and hospital visits. The major predictor of outpatient utilization for AD care was AD severity. Racial/ethnic, socio-economic and/or healthcare disparities reduce outpatient utilization and increase urgent, ED and hospital utilization.

Rhinogenic headache in pediatric and adolescent patients: an evidence ‐based review
ConclusionThe majority of pediatric patients with sinus headache harbor a primary headache disorder, with migraine being most common. Physicians should suspect primary headache disorders in pediatric patients with chronic headaches and a normal exam. Although some case series are supportive of surgical management for mucosal contact point headaches in children, the level of evidence supporting these recommendations is insufficient. High ‐quality clinical trials are necessary for continuing to improve outcomes in patients with these clinical entities.

Gut microbes from healthy infants block milk allergy development in mice
(NIH/National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases) New research suggests that the gut microbiome may help prevent the development of cow's milk allergy. Scientists at the University of Chicago found that gut microbes from healthy human infant donors transplanted into mice protected animals exposed to milk from experiencing allergic reactions, while gut microbes transplanted from infants allergic to milk did not. The work, described online today in Nature Medicine, was supported in part by NIAID.

Clinical trial testing fecal microbiota transplant for recurrent diarrheal disease begins
(NIH/National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases) A research consortium recently began enrolling patients in a clinical trial examining whether fecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) by enema--putting stool from a healthy donor in the colon of a recipient--is safe and can prevent recurrent Clostridium difficile-associated disease (CDAD), a potentially life-threatening diarrheal illness. Investigators aim to enroll 162 volunteer participants 18 years or older who have had two or more episodes of CDAD within the previous six months.

The Australasian Society of Clinical Immunology and Allergy infant feeding for allergy prevention guidelines.
Abstract INTRODUCTION: The Australasian Society of Clinical Immunology and Allergy, the peak professional body for clinical immunology and allergy in Australia and New Zealand, develops and provides information on a wide range of immune-mediated disorders, including advice about infant feeding and allergy prevention for health professionals and families. Guidelines for infant feeding and early onset allergy prevention were published in 2016, with additional guidance published in 2017 and 2018, based on emerging evidence.

Publication date: Available online 10 January 2019Source: The Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology: In PracticeAuthor(s): Jennifer HeimallAbstractThe discovery of chromosomes, genes, and DNA in the early 20th century paved the way for the development of techniques to examine the role of these elements in disease pathogenesis. Since the start of the 21st century, genetic testing and particularly next-generation sequencing has allowed for a rapid rate of gene disease associations for a broad range of primary immunodeficiency patients. At the same time, biologic and small molecule–based therapies targeting specific mo...

Impact of penicillin allergy records on carbapenem prescribing: an observational retrospective cohort study
This study measured the impact of penicillin allergy labels on meropenem prescribing. Rates of meropenem prescribing were compared between patients with a penicillin allergy record and patients without such a record. Potential confounders were also collected (i.e. age, sex and co-morbidities). Of the 21,272 patients with no penicillin allergy, 225 (1.06%) were prescribed meropenem, whereas of the 3443 patients with penicillin allergy, 240 (6.97%) were prescribed meropenem. Meropenem prescribing is associated with a patient's penicillin allergy record. Given that many penicillin allergy records are incorrect, addressing spu...

The position paper of the Polish Society of Allergology on climate changes, natural disasters and allergy and asthma.
Authors: Pałczyński C, Kupryś-Lipinska I, Wittczak T, Jassem E, Breborowicz A, Kuna P Abstract The observed global climate change is an indisputable cause of the increased frequency of extreme weather events and related natural disasters. This phenomenon is observed all over the world including Poland. Moreover, Polish citizens as tourists are also exposed to climate phenomena that do not occur in our climate zone.

The Efficacy of 0.1% Tacrolimus Ophthalmic Suspension in the Treatment of Severe Atopic Keratoconjunctivitis
Allergic conjunctival diseases (ACDs) are defined as conjunctival inflammatory conditions associated with a type I allergy accompanied by some subjective and objective symptoms1. ACDs are broadly divided into five types according to the presence of proliferative changes, atopic dermatitis (AD), and the presence/absence of mechanical irritation (i.e., seasonal allergic conjunctivitis (SAC), perennial allergic conjunctivitis (PAC), atopic keratoconjunctivitis (AKC), vernal keratoconjunctivitis (VKC) and giant papillary conjunctivitis (GPC)).

Double check patients with ' penicillin allergy ' to avoid increased MRSA risk.
Healthcare staff should be aware of this and ensure that only people with a true allergy to penicillin are documented as such, NICE is urging. Incorrectly identifying people as allergic could also contribute to antimicrobial resistance, as these people are likely to instead be given broad-spectrum antibiotics. The warning comes in a new medicines evidence commentary (MEC) on research conducted in the UK and published in the BMJ in June 2018.
