Methylisothiazolinone contact allergy--growing epidemic.
The prevalence of contact allergy to the isothiazolinone preservative methylchloroisothiazolinone (MCI) in combination with methylisothiazolinone (MI) and MI alone has increased in the last couple of years. This study investigated the prevalence of contact allergy to MI, MCI/MI and benzisothiazolinone (BIT) among patch tested patients, as well as the use of MI in cosmetic products, and concludes that the prevalence of MI and MCI/MI contact allergy increased significantly from 2010 to 2012: from 2.0% to 3.7% for MI (n = 2766), and from 1.0% to 2.4% for MCI/MI (n = 2802). MI-allergic patients had occupational, hand and face dermatitis significantly more often, and were aged > 40 years. Cosmetics were the most common substances causing relevant exposure found in both MCI/MI-allergic and MI-allergic patients. MI was found in 3.3% of cosmetics on the Danish retail market.

Contact sensitization to calocephalin from cushion bush (Leucophyta brownii, Compositae).
Cushion bush is an Australian Compositae shrub that has been introduced into Scandinavia as a pot plant. Calocephalin was isolated from a dichloromethane extract of aerial parts of cushion bush. The prevalence of patch test positivity was up to 28% in aimed patch testing. Despite strongly positive patch test reactions, the relevance was unknown in the majority of cases, and only 1 person was occupationally sensitized. Positive reactions in Compositae-sensitive persons probably occur because of cross-reactivity, and patients should be warned about contact with cushion bush plants.

Sensitizing capacity of Disperse Orange 1 and its potential metabolites from azo reduction and their cross-reactivity pattern.
Simultaneous contact allergies to Disperse Orange 1, 4-nitroaniline and p-aminodiphenylamine (PADPA), as well as to other disperse azo dyes and to p-phenylenediamine (PPD), have been reported. Cross-reactivity is one of the possible explanations for simultaneous reactions between PPD and disperse azo dyes. Some metabolites from the azo reduction of these disperse azo dyes could be sensitizers, as human skin bacteria produce azo reductases. This study investigated the sensitizing capacity of Disperse Orange 1, PADPA and 4-nitroaniline, and the cross-reactivity between these substances and Disperse Yellow 3, its potential metabolites from azo reduction (4-aminoacetanilide and 2-amino-p-cresol), and PPD.

The results indicate that patients sensitized primarily to Disperse Orange 1 will also react to PADPA, which can be found mainly in hair dyes. PPD, 4-nitroaniline, 4-aminoacetanilide, 2-amino-p-cresol and Disperse Yellow 3 did not show any cross-reactivity with Disperse Orange 1 or PADPA.

Side-effects of henna and semi-permanent 'black henna' tattoos: a full review.
Henna, the dried and powdered leaf of Lawsonia inermis, is widely used as a dye for the skin, hair, and nails, and as an expression of body art, especially in Islamic and Hindu cultures. As it stains the skin reddish-brown, it is also called red henna. Black henna is the combination of red henna with p-phenylenediamine (PPD), and is used for temporary 'black henna tattoos'. This article provides a full review of the side-effects of topical application of red and black henna, both cutaneous (allergic and non-allergic) and systemic. Red henna appears to be generally safe, with rare instances of contact allergy and type I hypersensitivity reactions. In children with glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency, topical application of henna may cause life-threatening haemolysis. Black henna tattoos will induce contact allergy to its ingredient PPD at an estimated frequency of 2.5%. Once sensitized, the patients may experience allergic contact dermatitis from the use of hair dyes containing PPD. There are often cross-reactions to other hair dyes, dyes used in textiles, local anaesthetics, and rubber chemicals. The sensitization of children to PPD may have important consequences for health and later career prospects. Systemic toxicity of black henna has been reported in certain African countries

Bla g 3: a novel allergen of German cockroach
The objective of this study was to characterize a novel German cockroach (GCr) allergen homologous to the American cockroach allergen Per a 3. A novel allergen of GCr homologous to American cockroach allergen Per a 3 was isolated and designated Bla g 3. It has an apparent mass of 78 kDa and is a heat-stable protein. Screening of 61 serum samples from GCr-allergic patients showed a 22% prevalence of Bla g 3-specific IgE.

Drug allergens and food-the cetuximab and galactose-alpha-1,3-galactose story.
Recent work has identified a novel IgE antibody response to the mammalian oligosaccharide epitope, alpha-gal, that has been associated with 2 distinct forms of anaphylaxis: (1) immediate-onset anaphylaxis during first exposure to intravenous cetuximab and (2) delayed-onset anaphylaxis 3 to 6 hours after ingestion of mammalian food products (eg, beef and pork). Study results have suggested that tick bites are a cause of IgE antibody responses to alpha-gal in the United States. Patients with IgE antibody to alpha-gal continue to emerge, and, increasingly, these cases involve children. Nevertheless, this IgE antibody response does not appear to pose a risk for asthma but may impair diagnostic testing in some situations.

Cross-reactivity between Anisakis spp. and wasp venom allergens.
Anisakiasis is caused by the consumption of raw or undercooked fish or cephalopods parasitized by live L3 larvae of nematode Anisakis spp. Larvae anchor to stomach mucosa releasing excretion/secretion products which contain the main allergens. It has been described that nematode larvae release venom allergen-like proteins among their excretion/secretion products. This study investigated potential cross-reactivity between Anisakis and wasp venom allergens. Two groups of 25 patients each were studied: wasp venom- and Anisakis-allergic patients. A total of 40% of wasp venom-allergic patients had specific IgE to Anisakis simplex and 20% detected at least one of the Anisakis recombinant allergens tested. Likewise, 44% of Anisakis-allergic patients had specific IgE to Vespula spp. Venom and 16% detected at least one of the Hymenoptera allergens tested. Wasp venom-allergic patients detected CCDs in Anisakis extract and peptide epitopes on Anisakis allergens rAni s 1 and rAni s 9, whereas Anisakis-allergic patients only detected CCDs on nVes v 1 allergen from Vespula spp. Venom. The only Anisakis allergen inhibited by Vespula venom was rAni s 9. The authors conclude that this is the first time that cross-sensitization between wasp venom and Anisakis is described. CCDs are involved in both cases; however, peptide epitopes are only recognized by wasp venom-allergic patients.

Peanut, milk, and wheat intake during pregnancy is associated with reduced allergy and asthma in children.
This study sought to examine the associations between maternal intake of common childhood food allergens during early pregnancy and childhood allergy and asthma. 1277 mother-child pairs from a US prebirth cohort unselected for any disease were studied. The study concludes that higher maternal intake of peanut, milk, and wheat during early pregnancy was associated with reduced odds of mid-childhood allergy and asthma

Bovine milk intolerance in celiac disease is related to IgA reactivity to alpha- and beta-caseins.
Celiac disease is an autoimmune disease triggered mainly by ingestion of wheat gluten proteins. However, some other dietary proteins, such as those of cow's milk, induce celiac disease-like symptoms in some patients with celiac disease. Different approaches have been done to detect the component responsible for this problem, including the possibility of gluten peptides present in cow's milk. Bovine milk intolerance in celiac disease is related to IgA reactivity to alpha- and beta-caseins.

Grass pollen pollution (red fescue) from biofuels farming
Based on its low costs and high harvests, red fescue (Festuca rubra ssp. Rubra L.) is a promising plant for biofuel production in the subtropics and temperate climate. Robust analysis on the shape, size, and chemical composition, especially the presence of allergens was conducted for 2 successive years in relation to 3 levels of N- and PK-fertilization. Multiparametric statistical analysis showed that there was no significant effect on the pollen grain size nor on the profile and content of the phenolic compounds. On the other hand, intense fertilization naturally increased the number of panicles, and consequently the overall pollen production. In addition, higher levels of fertilization significantly (P0.016, resp. P0.011) influences the content of tryptophan, which is involved in the occurrence and course of the allergic reactions.

The allergic risk of Tenebrio molitor for human consumption
The introduction of new foods with high protein content is a current objective of the food industry. Larvae of Tenebrio molitor (mealworm beetle) are rich in proteins and products derived from them have been marketed in animal food. Such products have a high sensitizing potency. Occupational allergy to these proteins has been reported. If these proteins are to be authorized for human consumption, the risk of their allergenicity must be studied. A single case of anaphylaxis to these proteins has been published. Cross-reactivity with other arthropod proteins (such as those from shellfish and house dust mites) raises concern that they may induce reactions in patients already allergic to these arthropods. Prospective studies on the risk of cross-reactive sensitivity should therefore be required by food safety agencies if they receive a request for authorization of such innovative foods.
