Platanus pollen allergen, Pla a 1: quantification in the atmosphere and influence on a sensitizing population.
The allergic response in susceptible patients does not always coincide with the presence and magnitude of airborne pollen counts. This study aimed to investigate the relationship between the atmospheric concentration pattern of Pla a 1 aeroallergen and the Platanus pollen. The aerobiological dynamics of Platanus pollen grains and Pla a 1 differed considerably, particularly during the Platanus pollination period. Of the 118 subjects tested, sera from 34 contained specific IgE to Platanus pollen and all of them had specific IgE to other pollen types. Therefore, the presence of the aeroallergen Pla a 1 in the atmosphere appears to be independent of Platanus pollen counts over the same period, which may be contributing to allergic symptoms and sensitization. The number of polysensitized patients displaying allergy to Platanus suggested that allergic symptoms were caused by co-sensitization or cross-reactivity involving a number of allergenic particles.

Prevalence and cause of methylisothiazolinone contact allergy.
Methylchloroisothiazolinone/methylisothiazolinone (MCI/MI) has been one of the most frequent sensitizers since the 1980s. In 2005, the use of MI alone was approved for the preservation of cosmetic and household products in the EU. Patch test results from 2536 dermatitis patients tested with MI at Gentofte University Hospital between May 2006 and February 2010 were analysed. Of patch-tested patients, 1.5% had MI contact allergy. It was associated with occupational dermatitis, hand eczema and age above 40 years. Exposure to MI in cosmetic products was found in 12 (32%) cases, and exposure to MI in occupational products was found in 11 (30%) cases; 5 of the 11 were painters.

Identification of metallic items that caused nickel dermatitis in Danish patients.
This study analysed items identified by nickel-allergic dermatitis patients as causative of nickel dermatitis by using the dimethylglyoxime (DMG) test. Among 95 nickel-allergic dermatitis patients, 70 (73.7%) had metallic items investigated for nickel release. A total of 151 items were investigated, and 66 (43.7%) gave positive DMG test reactions. DMG testing is valuable as a screening test for nickel release and should be used to identify relevant exposures in nickel-allergic patients. Mainly consumer items, but also work tools used in an occupational setting, released nickel in dermatitis patients. This study confirmed 'risk items' from previous studies, including mobile phones.

Patch test reactivity to feverfew-containing creams in feverfew-allergic patients.
Feverfew (Tanacetum parthenium) has long been recognized as an important sensitizer in European Compositae-allergic patients, mainly because of its content of the sesquiterpene lactone parthenolide. Recently, a parthenolide-depleted feverfew extract with claimed anti-inflammatory properties has been developed for use in cosmetics. The aim of the study was to test, on the basis of patch test reactions, whether persons with contact allergy to feverfew could tolerate creams containing this feverfew extract. Seven patients with feverfew contact allergy were patch tested with two creams containing the feverfew extract. Subsequently, the creams were analysed by liquid chromatography with tandem mass spectrometry to detect parthenolide. Four of the patients tested positive to one of the creams; reactivity was associated with simultaneous positive reactions to parthenolide. This cream was analysed about 2 years later, and no parthenolide was detected, probably because of degradation of the compound. Topical products containing parthenolide-depleted feverfew extracts may elicit positive patch test reactions in feverfew-sensitive patients. The reactivity may be enhanced by simultaneous testing with parthenolide, but the reactivity is lost over time, probably because of degradation of parthenolide.

Patch test reactivity to metal allergens following regulatory interventions: a 33-year retrospective study.
22 506 patients with dermatitis aged 4-99 years were patch tested with nickel sulfate, potassium dichromate, or cobalt chloride between 1977 and 2009. The proportion of 3+ reactions to nickel sulfate was reduced and almost disappeared after the mid- and late 1980s. Today, 1+ and 2+ nickel reactions occur equally frequent. Cobalt chloride patch test reactivity reflected the nickel development to some degree. The proportion of 3+ reactions to potassium dichromate was reduced during the 1980s, whereas the proportion of 2+ reactions to potassium dichromate have increased in recent years. The decrease in nickel sulfate and cobalt chloride 3+ patch test reactivity began long before the Danish nickel regulation came into effect. This could be because of research activity at the time as well as political attention in Northern Europe. The chromate content in cement regulation may have changed the epidemiology of patch test reactivity; however, in recent years, 2+ reactions to chromate have increased markedly, a development that should be carefully followed.

Methylisothiazolinone, an emerging allergen in cosmetics?
Primary sensitization by, and occupational contact dermatitis from, methylisothiazolinone in paints and glues have been published. In cosmetics, methylisothiazoline (MI) is permitted in a concentration of 100 p.p.m., while 15 p.p.m. for the mixture of methylchloroisothiazolinone and methylisothiazoline (MCI/MI). Seven patients with suspected contact dermatitis - six of them with (peri-)anal lesions and one with facial dermatitis - were patch tested with the baseline series, the own products exposed to, cosmetic ingredients, as well as with methylisothiazolinone 1000 p.p.m. and MCI/MI 200 p.p.m. The patients with anal lesions had become sensitized by wipes for intimate hygiene, and one patient with facial dermatitis by a make-up remover, all containing methylisothiazolinone only. Three out of seven cases would have been missed if only MCI/MI 100 p.p.m., as present in the baseline series, had been tested.

SLIT improves Cedar pollinosis by restoring IL-10 production from Tr1 and monocytes approximately IL-10 productivity Is critical for becoming allergic approximately.
The authors conclude that the present data implicates that the low productivity of IL-10 by monocytes and T cells is closely related with sensitivity to multiple allergens, and resistance to allergic diseases. Augmentation of constitutive IL-10 production from immune system is a potential therapeutic approach for allergic disorders

Occupational allergy to bell pepper pollen in greenhouses in the Netherlands, an 8-year follow-up study.
Bell pepper employees who participated in a cross-sectional survey in 1999 were asked to take part in a follow-up study in 2007. 280 of 472 employees were available for questionnaires and in 250 employees allergy tests were performed. During the 8-year follow-up, the cumulative incidence of sensitization to bell pepper pollen was 9% and of work-related rhinitis 19%. The cumulative incidence of work-related asthma symptoms was 8%. The study concludes that the cumulative incidences for sensitization to bell pepper pollen, work-related rhinitis and asthma symptoms were 9%, 19% and 8%, respectively. Atopy and smoking are risk factors for developing work-related symptoms among workers in bell pepper horticulture.

Sensitization to foods in gastroesophageal reflux disease and its relation to eosinophils in the esophagus: is it of clinical importance?
The presence of eosinophils in esophageal mucosa associated with greater sensitization to foods and the response to a restriction diet in patients with positive test results suggest that refractory GERD can represent an initial stage of eosinophilic esophagitis

Comparative identification of protein profiles and major allergens of saliva, salivary gland and whole body extracts of mosquito species in Thailand.
The protein profiles of saliva, salivary glands and whole body extracts of mosquitos were comparatively analyzed from 4 common mosquito species of Thailand and/or South East Asia; viz. Culex quinquefasciatus, Aedes aegypti, Aedes albopictus and a zoophilic strain, Anopheles minimus. The major allergens in the extracts which elicited specific IgE responses in the pooled sera of subjects allergic to mosquito bites were identified. It was concluded that mosquito saliva was the best source of allergens. Both species-specific and species-shared allergens of the 4 mosquito species were identified. The major saliva allergens had MWs of 36, 32 and 22 kDa.

The accumulation of dust mite allergens on mattresses made of different kinds of materials.
This study compared the amount of group 1 dust mite allergens (Der p1 + Der f1) on mattresses made of different kinds of materials before and after use: 60 new mattresses made of kapok, synthetic fiber, coconut fiber and sponge-like polyurethane. The dust samples were collected before (0), 1, 2, 3, 6, 9 and 12 months after the mattresses were used. Der f1 made up 86.7 % of group 1 allergens found in the matress dust. After the 2nd month, only the mean level in sponge-like polyurethane mattress was under 2 microg/g dust (sensitized level). At the 6th month, the mean levels were 13.1 in coconut, 21.7 in kapok and 17.3 microg/g dust in synthetic fiber, all of which were more than 10 microg/g dust (symptomatic level). At the 9th month, the level in sponge-like polyurethane mattress was increased to 11.2 microg/g. At 12th month the level in coconut fiber, sponge-like polyurethane synthetic fiber and kapok mattresses were 20.2, 22.4, 28.9 and 32.2 microg/g dust respectively. The accumulation rate in kapok and synthetic mattresses was significantly higher than coconut and sponge-like polyurethane mattresses.

Food allergy in Ghanaian schoolchildren.
Epidemiological data on food allergy are scarce in African countries. These authors studied the prevalence of food sensitization in Ghanaian schoolchildren, aged 5-16 years; n = 1,714 from 9 Ghanaian schools. Adverse reactions and food consumption were determined by a questionnaire and atopy by skin prick testing (SPT) to peanut and 6 fruits. Overall, 11% of 1,407 children reported adverse reactions to foods, and 5% of 1,431 children showed a positive SPT reaction mostly directed against peanut and pineapple (both 2%). Although there was a positive association between adverse reactions and SPT responses to any food allergen in the urban children (adjusted OR = 3.6), most of the reported adverse reactions were not in children showing an SPT reaction to the specific food item. sIgE sensitization was very variable for the different foods, ranging from 0 to 100% in cases, and from 0 to 25% among controls. High IgE levels for a food item significantly increased the risk of SPT positivity to any food item in the urban, but not in the rural, schoolchildren.

IgE-mediated latex allergy--an exciting and instructive piece of allergy history.
"Natural rubber latex represents a potent allergen, which for many years had an important impact on occupational health problems but especially on certain risk groups such as spina bifida. Luckily, these problems decreased when powder-free, latex-poor gloves were introduced. Latest data show that in children with spina bifida, who grew up completely latex-free from birth on, sensitization to NRL as well as clinical relevant allergy significantly decreased. Furthermore, sensitization to aeroallergens also went down and even the prevalence of allergic diseases decreased significantly to rates of the general population. This new data clearly indicates that potent allergens (such as latex) in high-risk groups (such as spina bifida) can induce sensitization spreading, and corresponding avoidance can reverse this development. In conclusion, it can be stated that 'new' allergies can suddenly arise, there are allergen-specific risk groups, local IgE-production is also possible in the CNS, allergen avoidance can be very effective in terms of primary prevention, sensitization spreading can be made reversible by effective prevention, and finally, certain allergies can luckily become history within a relatively short period of time. Furthermore, these new findings clearly end the debate about whether patients with spina bifida have a disease-inherited risk for allergy to NRL and show that the cause is the meningi and the multiple surgical interventions - and therefore sequelae can be reversed by implementing preventive measures."

Anaphylaxis in children and adolescents in 2010: Recommendations
"Acute anaphylaxis has become more frequent in infants and adolescents. Knowing that several European countries do not have specific directives for the management of anaphylaxis, the European Taskforce on Anaphylaxis (ETA) of the European Academy of Allergy and Clinical immunology (EAACI) developed and published such directives in an international journal in 2007 [1]. Since these directives were not available in French, we thought that it would be useful to summarize the directives which concerned children. In addition, between 2005 and 2008, other official organizations – Cochrane Collaboration Cochrane Reviews, the Working Group of the Resuscitation Council (UK), National Guideline Clearing house – had published documents on this subject, and we also refer to these documents. The directives of the ETA include six chapters: (1) Definitions, (2) Epidemiology, (3) Clinical symptoms, (4) Treatment, (5) Management in the community, and (6) Conclusions. This 14-page document is supported by 123 references. The proposals are accompanied by graded recommendations using the classical indicators A to D when this is possible. This synthesis, the first in the French language, should improve the diagnosis of anaphylaxis in adults as well as in children."

Intraoperative anaphylactic shock refractory to treatment.
"Anaphylactic shock refractory to appropriate treatment is defined by the absence of response to volumetric expansion and the administration of adrenalin at cumulative doses greater than 10 mg. We describe the case of a patient who was being operated on for a fracture of nasal bones and, during the induction of anesthesia, experienced a grade IV anaphylactic shock which did not respond to appropriate treatment. Analysis of the anesthesia protocol and the results of the immediate and subsequent allergy workups allowed us to determine that the etiology of this accident was due to allergy to amoxicillin. The refractory characteristic of this case of anaphylactic shock could not be explained. Following the recommended procedures was vital for this patient's survival."
