Incidence of fatal food anaphylaxis in people with food allergy: a systematic review and meta-analysis.
The aim of this study was to estimate the incidence of fatal food anaphylaxis for people with food allergy, and relate this to other mortality risks in the general population. Two authors selected studies by consensus, independently extracted data, and assessed the quality of included studies using the Newcastle-Ottawa assessment scale. We searched Medline, Embase, PsychInfo, CINAHL, Web of Science, LILACS or AMED, between January 1946 and September 2012. Data from 13 studies describing 240 fatal food anaphylaxis episodes over an estimated 165 million food-allergic person years were included. Study quality was mixed, and there was high heterogeneity between study results, possibly due to variation in food allergy prevalence and data collection methods. In food allergic people, fatal food anaphylaxis has an incidence rate of 1.81 per million person years. In sensitivity analysis with different estimated food allergy prevalence, the incidence varied from 1.35 to 2.71 per million person years. Fatal food anaphylaxis for a food allergic person is rarer than accidental death in the general population.

Mouse allergen is the major allergen of public health relevance in Baltimore City.
This study aimed to identify relevant allergens in Baltimore City.One hundred forty-four children (5-17 years old) with asthma underwent skin prick tests at baseline and had clinical data collected at baseline and 3, 6, 9, and 12 months. Forty-one percent were mouse sensitized/exposed, and 41% were cockroach sensitized/exposed based on bedroom floor exposure data.

Inhaled allergen bronchoprovocation tests.
The allergen bronchoprovocation test is a long-standing exacerbation model of allergic asthma that can induce several clinical and pathophysiologic features of asthma in sensitized subjects. Standardized allergen challenge is primarily a research tool, and when properly conducted by qualified and experienced investigators, it is safe and highly reproducible. In combination with validated airway sampling and sensitive detection techniques, allergen challenge allows the study of several features of the physiology of mainly TH2 cell-driven asthma in relation to the kinetics of the underlying airway pathology occurring during the allergen-induced late response. Furthermore, given the small within-subject variability in allergen-induced airway responses, allergen challenge offers an adequate disease model for the evaluation of new (targeted) controller therapies for asthma in a limited number of subjects. In proof-of-efficacy studies thus far, allergen challenge showed a fair positive predicted value and an excellent negative predictive value for the actual clinical efficacy of new antiasthma therapies, underscoring its important role in early drug development. In this review we provide recommendations on challenge methods, response measurements, sample size, safety, and harmonization for future applications

Interferon beta 1a anaphylaxis, a case report.
Interferon beta 1a is a very useful maintenance therapy widely used by neurologists, in particular for multiple sclerosis. In the literature, there are several case reports of hypersensitivity reactions. In this case report we describe an anaphylactic IgE mediated reaction to interferon beta 1a.

Relationship between atopy, allergic diseases and total serum IgE levels among HIV-infected children.
This review shows that high IgE levels can be found for other reasons than atopy or allergic disease in children with HIV. Specific IgE against the antigens of the HIV virus and higher levels of total serum IgE can be seen in children with or without aggravation of AIDS.

Asthma and exposure to cleaning products - Consensus statement
Professional and domestic cleaning is associated with work-related asthma (WRA). This position paper reviews the literature linking exposure to cleaning products and the risk of asthma and focuses on prevention. Increased risk of asthma has been shown in many epidemiological and surveillance studies, and several case reports describe the relationship between exposure to one or more cleaning agents and WRA. Cleaning sprays, bleach, ammonia, disinfectants, mixing products, and specific job tasks have been identified as specific causes and/or triggers of asthma. Because research conclusions and policy suggestions have remained unheeded by manufactures, vendors, and commercial cleaning companies, it is time for a multifaceted intervention. Possible preventive measures encompass the following: substitution of cleaning sprays, bleach, and ammonia; minimizing the use of disinfectants; avoidance of mixing products; use of respiratory protective devices; and worker education. Moreover, we suggest the education of unions, consumer, and public interest groups to encourage safer products. In addition, information activities for the general population with the purpose of improving the knowledge of professional and domestic cleaners regarding risks and available preventive measures and to promote strict collaboration between scientific communities and safety and health agencies are urgently needed

Challenge-proven nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug hypersensitivity in children.
Histories of both single and multiple NSAID-Hs are poor predictors of actual drug hypersensitivity. Therefore, diagnostic tests should be performed in all children if no contraindication exits. Family history of NSAID-H is the only significant parameter predicting OPT results

Classification and practical approach to the diagnosis and management of hypersensitivity to nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.
Hypersensitivity reactions to aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid) and other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) constitute only a subset of all adverse reactions to these drugs, but due to their severity pose a significant burden to patients and are a challenge to the allergist. In susceptible individuals, NSAIDs induce a wide spectrum of hypersensitivity reactions with various timing, organ manifestations, and severity, involving either immunological (allergic) or nonimmunological mechanisms. Proper classification of reactions based on clinical manifestations and suspected mechanism is a prerequisite for the implementation of rational diagnostic procedures and adequate patient management. This document, prepared by a panel of experts from the European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology Task Force on NSAIDs Hypersensitivity, aims at reviewing the current knowledge in the field and proposes uniform definitions and clinically useful classification of hypersensitivity reactions to NSAIDs. The document proposes also practical algorithms for the diagnosis of specific types of NSAIDs hypersensitivity (which include drug provocations, skin testing and in vitro testing) and provides, when data are available, evidence-based recommendations for the management of hypersensitive patients, including drug avoidance and drug desensitization

Inhibition of IgE binding to cross-reactive carbohydrate determinants enhances diagnostic selectivity.
Allergen-specific IgE testing is complicated by clinically irrelevant IgE, of which the most prominent example is IgE against cross-reactive carbohydrate determinants (CCDs) that occur on allergens from plants and insects: CCDs cause numerous false-positive results. Inhibition of CCDs has been proposed as a remedy, but has not yet found its way into the routine diagnostic laboratory. These authors sought to provide a simple and affordable procedure to overcome the CCD problem. 6000 serum samples from allergic patients were analysed of which 22% reacted with CCD reporter proteins. (anti-CCD IgE reached 35% in the teenage group). Application of the CCD blocker (prepared from purified bromelain glycopeptides and human serum albumin) led to a clear reduction in read-out values, often below the threshold level. A much better correlation between laboratory results and anamnesis and skin tests was achieved in many cases. The CCD blocker did not affect test results where CCDs were not involved. Therefore eiminating the effect of IgEs directed against CCDs by inhibition leads to a significant reduction in false-positive in vitro test results without lowering sensitivity towards relevant sensitizations.

Anaphylaxis secondary to contact with a vomited food allergen.
A 13 months of age girl, sensitised to egg white, milk, fish, soybean, and peanut, was exposed to her brother's emesis. He had eaten macaroni and cheese and corn bread for dinner. Four hours later, the patient and her brother were lying in bed together, and he vomited on her. The emesis came in contact with the patient’s eyes, nose, and mouth. Within 10 minutes, she developed urticarial lesions surrounding the right eye, bilateral eyelid edema, and tearing of the eyes. The patient’s mother gave her a bath and noticed labored breathing within 20 minutes of the child coming in contact with the emesis. Epinephrine was administered. The authors concluded that egg and milk were the likely allergens in the emesis that could have led to the anaphylactic reaction.
