Pearls and pitfalls: Cold-induced urticaria.

Allergy Asthma Proc 2020 Jul;41(4):301-304

Division of Allergy and Immunology, Naval Medical Center Portsmouth, Portsmouth, Virginia.

Cold-induced urticaria can take place either due to direct cold exposure, cryoglobulinemia, or genetic component (such as cryopyrin-associated periodic syndrome), which leads to the rapid onset of urticaria and/or angioedema. It is more common in younger patients and more likely to affect females compared with males. To increase awareness of such systemic reactions of anaphylaxis and provide a focused review of the differential diagnosis, underlying mechanisms, broad workup, and management of this disease process for allergy/immunology fellows, residents, general physicians, and general practitioners.

Adherence and usage patterns of inhaled corticosteroids-long-acting beta-agonists by using inhaler-monitoring technology.

Allergy Asthma Proc 2020 Jul;41(4):256-264

Optum, Eden Prairie, Minnesota.

Results of previous research indicate that adherence to prescribed inhaled corticosteroid-long-acting beta2-agonist (ICS-LABA) asthma controller medications is suboptimal, yet actual daily-use patterns are unclear and may be influenced by regimen complexity or dosing frequency. To investigate real-world use of asthma medications by using inhaler sensors for the ICS-LABA controllers: twice-daily fluticasone propionate (FP) plus salmeterol (SAL) and once-daily fluticasone furoate (FF) plus vilanterol (VI); and albuterol rescue medication. This longitudinal, two-phase, observational study included adults with asthma-prescribed FP-SAL (phase I) or FF-VI (phase II), and albuterol metered-dose inhalers. Read More

An evaluation of factors influencing response to epicutaneous immunotherapy for peanut allergy in the PEPITES trial.

Allergy Asthma Proc 2020 Jun 15. Epub 2020 Jun 15.

Background: Epicutaneous immunotherapy (EPIT) for peanut allergy is a potential novel immunotherapy that utilizes the unique cutaneous immunologic properties to induce desensitization. A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled Phase 3 trial (PEPITES) in peanut-allergic children 4-11 years demonstrated an epicutaneous patch (DBV712) with 250 micrograms peanut protein was statistically superior to placebo in inducing desensitization following 12 months of daily treatment.

Objective: To investigate what baseline and in-study factors influenced response to DBV712 250 micrograms, with a focus on patch adhesion, by posthoc analysis of PEPITES data. Read More

Allergy Asthma Proc 2020 Jul 11;41(4):265-270. Epub 2020 May 11.

Research & Development, Meda Pharmaceuticals, Somerset, New Jersey.

Intranasal antihistamines and steroids should be delivered in a volume and with a technique that allow for optimal drug retention within the entire nasal cavity, maximize local absorption by the nasal mucosa, and, subsequently, increase the potential for the most desirable local availability and therapeutic effect. This in vitro evaluation simulated nasal medication deposition and evaluated the extent of runoff.
