Occupational asthma caused by triglycidyl isocyanurate.
Several cases of allergic contact dermatitis, two cases of occupational asthma from over one decade ago and one case of hypersensitivity pneumonitis have been documented in painters who use polyester powder paint containing triglycidyl isocyanurate (TGIC). This study reports on a 28-year-old female who, 4 months after beginning work in a powder-coating factory, developed asthma-like symptoms. Serial peak-flow measurements performed during both working and non-working periods demonstrated peak-flow variability of up to 46% on work days. The patient was placed in the chamber and exposed to TGIC (4% in lactose) at a mean concentration of 3.61 mg/m(3) for a total of 15 min. A 20% fall in FEV(1) from baseline was elicited at 10 min, together with cough and wheezing. No late response was demonstrated. No IgE was detected by ELISA testing and no IgE-binding bands were found by immunoblot analysis of patient and control serum.

Epitope mapping of Atlantic Salmon major allergen by peptide microarray immunoassay.
Peptide-based microarray immunoassay offers an advantage of scale and parallel design over previous methods of epitope mapping. It has been used to map epitopes of some food allergens but has never been used with fish allergens. The authors sought to develop a peptide microarray immunoassay to map allergenic fish epitopes of two isoforms of Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) parvalbumin, Sal s 1 beta 1 and Sal s 1 beta 2. Sera from 16 fish-allergic patients with specific IgE to salmon parvalbumin were used. Three antigenic regions, not previously described, were identified in Sal s 1 beta 1. Two of them correlated with those previously reported in Gad c 1, parvalbumin from Baltic cod (Gadus callarias). No allergenic regions were found in Sal s 1 beta 2. This could be explained by crucial amino acid substitutions between isoforms.

IgG to various beta-glucans in a human adult population.
Fungal beta-(1,3)-glucans are pro-inflammatory agents, and exposures to beta-(1,3)-glucans are associated with respiratory tract symptoms. IgG anti-(1,3)-glucan titers are measured in diagnosis of fungal infections. Although other beta-glucan structures exist, like beta-(1,6)-glucans, little is known about their antigenic or pro-inflammatory properties. This study investigated IgG titers and specificities in human sera against different beta-glucans with varying structures and concludes that IgG to beta-(1,3)- and beta-(1,6)-glucans can be found in normal human sera. Beta-(1,6)-glucans appear to be much more potent antigens. The health impact of high anti-beta-(1,6)-glucan antibody levels remains unclear and further investigations are needed.

Effect of exposure and sensitization to indoor allergens on asthma control level.
This study concludes that the level of exposure to multiple indoor allergens, but not sensitization, is associated with the asthma control level determined by peak expiratory flow variation.

Trends in occupational airway diseases in German hairdressers
Hairdressers are exposed to several allergens and irritants known to cause obstructive airway diseases (OAD). In the early 1990s, high incidence rates of OAD were observed in German hairdressers. It was expected that modification of formulations would resolve the problem of high OAD rates in hairdressers. From 1998 until 2003, the total number of confirmed cases of allergen-, latex- and irritant-induced OAD stayed at a plateau of 60 cases annually in hairdressers, after which a downward trend was apparent. The number of irritant-induced OAD cases did not fall during this overall downward trend. Hair dyes and acid perms were most often identified as the substances causing OAD in hairdressers. In healthcare professionals, the downward trend in OAD is more pronounced than in hairdressers, mainly due to a decrease in latex-induced cases.

Cosensitization to orange seed and cashew nut.
This study was initiated after one of the authors treated a 6-year- old boy with cashew allergy who chewed and swallowed the seeds while eating a mandarin. He developed a systemic reaction within 1 hour of ingestion, including periorbital edema, widespread pruritus, abdominal pain, and nausea. The SPT result was positive to mandarin seed and cashew but negative to mandarin juice. The results of skin prick tests (SPTs) from 100 patients showing high rates of cosensitization to cashew and orange seed. Half of the children had positive cashew SPT results, and half had negative cashew SPT results but positive SPT results to another tree nut and/or peanut. Age of the study participants ranged from 10 months to 18 years, with 40 boys and 60 girls. Thirty-five patients had positive SPT results to both orange seed and cashew, 7 had positive results to orange seed but not cashew, and a further 15 had positive results to cashew but not orange seed. The study cohort was almost exclusively sensitized to orange seed and not juice.

Diagnosis and management of hymenoptera venom allergy: British Society for Allergy and Clinical Immunology (BSACI) guidelines.
This guidance for the management of patients with hymenoptera venom allergy has been prepared by the Standards of Care Committee (SOCC) of the British Society for Allergy and Clinical Immunology (BSACI). The guideline is based on evidence as well as on expert opinion and is for use by both adult physicians and pediatricians practising allergy. During the development of these guidelines, all BSACI members were included in the consultation process using a web-based system. Their comments and suggestions were carefully considered by the SOCC. Where evidence was lacking, consensus was reached by the experts on the committee. Included in this guideline are epidemiology, risk factors, clinical features, diagnostic tests, natural history of hymenoptera venom allergy and guidance on undertaking venom immunotherapy (VIT). There are also separate sections on children, elevated baseline tryptase and mastocytosis and mechanisms underlying VIT. Finally, we have made recommendations for potential areas of future research

Single nut or total nut avoidance in nut allergic children: outcome of nut challenges to guide exclusion diets.
Children with diagnosed nut allergy are typically advised by health professionals to exclude all nuts from their diets, irrespective of the outcome of allergy testing, to avoid inadvertent contact through contamination or the possible development of new allergies. Over a 5-year period from 2006, the authors challenged 145 children diagnosed as peanut allergic or tree nut allergic. In those with peanut allergy challenged to tree nuts, none of the 72 with negative PTs to tree nuts reacted on challenge whilst 7 of 22 (31.2%) with positive PTs did. In patients with tree nut allergy challenged to peanuts and/or other tree nuts, 3 of 38 (7.9%) with negative PT results and 5 of 13 (38.4%) with positive PT results reacted. In conclusion, children allergic to peanuts with negative allergy tests to tree nuts had no co-existing allergy, but were at risk of tree nut allergy where PTs were positive. Children with tree nut allergy were at risk of co-existing peanut or other tree nut allergy whether PTs were positive or negative. Oral challenges to clarify allergy status in all nuts show co-existing allergies even in young children and in so doing may reduce anxiety, minimize unnecessary dietary restrictions and prevent later episodes of anaphylaxis through uninformed exposure.

beta-lactam allergy and cross-reactivity.
Penicillins and cephalosporins are the most widely used antibiotics for the treatment of common infections, and they are the two main classes of beta-lactams. On the basis of the time of appearance of the reaction after drug intake and for diagnostic purposes, hypersensitivity reactions to beta-lactams have been classified as immediate or non-immediate. The diagnostic evaluation of allergic reactions to beta-lactams has changed over the last decade, for several reasons. In many countries, major and minor determinants for skin testing are not available. In immediate allergic reactions, the sensitivity of skin testing is decreasing. For non-immediate reactions, skin testing appears to be less sensitive than previously reported. The drug provocation test is still necessary for diagnosis. In this education review series, we described three cases of beta-lactam allergy: first, a child with an IgE-mediated allergy to benzyl-penicillin; second, a child with a non-allergic hypersensitivity to amoxicillin; and in the third patient, we will discuss about cross-reactivity between penicillins and cephalosporins. These cases are correlated with the practical management of evaluating beta-lactam allergy.

Sensitivity to animals' allergens in people working with animals.
This Spanish study determined the frequency of sensitization to animal allergens extracts in workers of the Bioterio of the Autonomous University of Puebla. Twenty nine subjects with animal-related professional activities were included, mean age 32.3 years, male predominance (82.8%) and years of work 6.3. Laboratory animal workers were exposed mostly to dogs (83%). Nearly half of the workers reported clinical manifestations at work. Sixty-two percent of them had at least one positive skin test to animal allergen extracts.

Allergy to materials used in dental procedures.
The number of patients with pathology originated by dental materials has increased. The scarce knowledge about it delays diagnosis. The study of biomaterials used in odontologic procedures and its harmful effect must be encouraged, as well as its pathological manifestations which require more clinical investigation and diffusion, with the aim to give more and better information to dentists, family and allergy physicians so that they can provide prompt and successful care
