Food-Induced Anaphylaxis: Role of Hidden Allergens and Cofactors.

Authors:
Isabel J Skypala

Front Immunol 2019 3;10:673. Epub 2019 Apr 3.

Department of Allergy and Clinical Immunology, Imperial College, Royal Brompton and Harefield NHS Foundation Trust, London, United Kingdom.

Food anaphylaxis is on the increase, with those who have an allergy to peanuts, tree nuts, milk, and seafood at the highest risk of developing such a reaction. However, the diet in many societies is increasingly varied, much of the food consumed is prepared outside the home, and meals are often composed of many different ingredients. Anaphylaxis may occur to a composite food, and it may be unclear whether the reaction is due to contamination or to a culprit allergen present in an added ingredient. Read More

Anaphylaxis after wheat ingestion in a patient with coeliac disease: two kinds of reactions and the same culprit food.

Eur J Gastroenterol Hepatol 2019 Apr 15. Epub 2019 Apr 15.

Pediatric Gastroenterology and Liver Unit, Department of Pediatrics, Sapienza University of Rome, Rome, Italy.

In recent years, the role of atopic dermatitis epidermal skin barrier defects in inducing a transcutaneous allergic sensitization is highly debated, possibly explaining why some children with eczema are sensitized to foods they have never eaten. In our specific situation, the association between coeliac disease and wheat allergy might be particularly harmful owing to unavoidable strict food avoidance. We describe the case of a young boy affected by coeliac disease who, after an occasional unexpected ingestion of gluten, experienced a complete anaphylactic reaction characterized by urticarial, labial angioedema, wheezing, and hypotension.

Efficacy and Pharmacodynamic Modeling of the BTK Inhibitor Evobrutinib in Autoimmune Disease Models.

J Immunol 2019 Apr 15. Epub 2019 Apr 15.

Translational Innovation Platform Immunology, EMD Serono Research and Development Institute, Billerica, MA 01821; and

Because of its role in mediating both B cell and Fc receptor signaling, Bruton's tyrosine kinase (BTK) is a promising target for the treatment of autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). Evobrutinib is a novel, highly selective, irreversible BTK inhibitor that potently inhibits BCR- and Fc receptormediated signaling and, thus, subsequent activation and function of human B cells and innate immune cells such as monocytes and basophils. We evaluated evobrutinib in preclinical models of RA and SLE and characterized the relationship between BTK occupancy and inhibition of disease activity. Read More

Radiocontrast media hypersensitivity: skin testing differentiates allergy from non-allergic reactions and identifies a safe alternative as proven by intravenous provocation.

J Allergy Clin Immunol Pract 2019 Apr 10. Epub 2019 Apr 10.

Department of Dermatology and Allergy, University Hospital Würzburg, Germany.

Background: Hypersensitivity reactions occurring within minutes after intravascular injection of iodinated radiocontrast media (RCM) are common and have been previously considered to be non-allergic. However, in the last decades, evidence is increasing that also genuine RCM allergy may present as either full-blown anaphylaxis or delayed exanthematous skin reaction.

Objectives: We aimed to assess whether allergy diagnostics including skin and provocation testing can differentiate between non-allergic and allergic RCM hypersensitivity by identifying the causative RCM as well as tolerated alternative RCM. Read More

An EAACI position paper on the investigation of perioperative immediate hypersensitivity reactions.

Allergy 2019 Apr 9. Epub 2019 Apr 9.

Allergy Unit, Department of Dermatology, University Hospital, University of Basel, Basel, Switzerland.

Perioperative immediate hypersensitivity reactions are rare. Subsequent allergy investigation is complicated by multiple simultaneous drug exposures, the use of drugs with potent effects and the many differential diagnoses to hypersensitivity in the perioperative setting. The approach to the investigation of these complex reactions is not standardized and it is becoming increasingly apparent that collaboration between experts in the field of allergy/immunology/dermatology and anaesthesiology is needed to provide the best possible care for these patients.

Cofactors of wheat-dependent exercise-induced anaphylaxis do not increase highly individual gliadin absorption in healthy volunteers.

Clin Transl Allergy 2019 25;9:19. Epub 2019 Mar 25.

5Department of Dermatology and Allergy Biederstein, Technical University of Munich, Biedersteiner Strasse 29, 80802 Munich, Germany.

Background: In wheat-dependent exercise-induced anaphylaxis (WDEIA), cofactors such as exercise, acetylsalicylic acid (ASA), alcohol or unfavorable climatic conditions are required to elicit a reaction to wheat products. The mechanism of action of these cofactors is unknown, but an increase of gliadin absorption has been speculated. Our objectives were to study gliadin absorption with and without cofactors and to correlate plasma gliadin levels with factors influencing protein absorption in healthy volunteers. Read More

Mast Cell Activation Syndrome and Mastocytosis: Initial Treatment Options and Long-Term Management.

J Allergy Clin Immunol Pract 2019 Apr;7(4):1097-1106

Mayo Clinic Program for Mast Cell and Eosinophil Disorders, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minn.

Patients with clonal mast cell activation syndromes (MCAS) including cutaneous and systemic mastocytosis (SM) may present with symptoms of mast cell activation, but in addition can have organ damage from the local effects of tissue infiltration by clonal mast cells. Patients with nonclonal MCAS may have chronic or episodic mast cell activation symptoms with an increase in serum tryptase and/or urinary metabolites of histamine, prostaglandin D2, and leukotrienes. Symptoms of MCAS and SM can be managed by blockade of mediator receptors (H1 and H2 antihistamines, leukotriene receptor blockade), inhibition of mediator synthesis (aspirin, zileuton), mediator release (sodium cromolyn), anti-IgE therapy, or a combination of these approaches.

Danish Anaesthesia Allergy Centre, Allergy Clinic, Department of Dermatology and Allergy, Copenhagen University Hospital, Gentofte, Denmark; Department of Clinical Medicine, University of Copenhagen, Copenhagen, Denmark.

Chlorhexidine is an antiseptic with a broad spectrum of activity and a persistent effect on skin. Consequently, it has become an ubiquitous antiseptic in healthcare and the community. As use has become widespread, increasing numbers of cases of allergy have been reported in the literature, including cases of anaphylaxis to chlorhexidine gels used on mucous membranes, chlorhexidine-impregnated devices such as central venous catheters, chlorhexidine preparations used on wounds and broken skin, and cases after dental procedures.

Anaphylaxis during pregnancy.

Psychiatr Danub 2019 Mar;31(Suppl 1):60-62

University of Zagreb, School of Medicine, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, University Hospital Zagreb, Kišpatićeva 12, 10000 Zagreb, Croatia,

Anaphylaxis occuring during pregnancy has a potential to cause devastating damage to the unborn baby and the mother. However, majority of adverse outcomes of anaphylaxis during pregnancy frequently affect the neonates rather than the mothers. The negative neurologic outcomes of the fetus are mostly due to delayed caesarean delivery or inadequate doses of adrenaline during anaphylaxis. Read More

Diagnosis of perioperative anaphylaxis.

Psychiatr Danub 2019 Mar;31(Suppl 1):50-59

Srebrnjak Children's Hospital, Srebrnjak 100, 10000 Zagreb, Croatia,

Every agent used during the perioperative period may be involved and have the potential to trigger both allergic, IgE and non-IgE reaction as well as non-specific (non-allergic) reactions. In many cases, an allergic mechanism cannot be ruled out and systematic investigations should be tested of all drugs and agents the patient was exposed to prior to the reaction. The complexity of agents used for anaesthesia and surgery present challenges when attempting to identify the culprit drugs and select proper testing to better recognition of trigger. Read More

The alpha-Gal syndrome: new insights into the tick-host conflict and cooperation.

Parasit Vectors 2019 Apr 3;12(1):154. Epub 2019 Apr 3.

UMR BIPAR, INRA, ANSES, Ecole Nationale Vétérinaire d'Alfort, Université Paris-Est, Maisons-Alfort, 94700, France.

This primer focuses on a recently diagnosed tick-borne allergic disease known as the alpha-Gal syndrome (AGS). Tick bites induce in humans high levels of IgE antibodies against the carbohydrate Galα1-3Galβ1-(3)4GlcNAc-R (α-Gal) present on tick salivary glycoproteins and tissues of non-catarrhine mammals, leading to the AGS in some individuals. This immune response evolved as a conflict and cooperation between ticks and human hosts including their gut microbiota. Read More

Service d'immunologie et allergie, Département de médecine, CHUV, 1011 Lausanne.

Allergic reactions to fish are potentially life-threatening. We detail here various reactions to fish, notably anaphylaxis and food protein induced enterocolitis syndrome, as well as confounders such as reactions to the parasite Anisakis and scombroid poisoning. Most IgE-mediated reactions are directed to β-parvalbumin. Read More

The incidence of lidocaine allergy in dentists: an evaluation of 100 general dental practitioners.

Int J Occup Med Environ Health 2019 Apr 2. Epub 2019 Apr 2.

Medical University of Lodz, Łódź, Poland (Department of Oral Surgery).

Objectives: Local anesthetics are some of the most common drugs used in dentistry and about 6 million people daily around the world are subjected to their effect in procedures performed by a similar number of dentists who, in turn, are usually not aware of the fact of being allergic to this group of medications. Assuming that dentists are also patients, and that in their daily practice the contact with the allergen is very frequent, it is essential to assess the incidence of allergy to lidocaine in general dental practitioners.

Material And Methods: The authors evaluated a group of 100 general dental practitioners in whom adverse reactions similar to anaphylaxis occurred after local anesthesia. Read More

Investigation into the α-Gal syndrome: Characteristics of 261 children and adults reporting red meat allergy.

J Allergy Clin Immunol Pract 2019 Mar 30. Epub 2019 Mar 30.

Division of Allergy & Clinical Immunology, University of Virginia, Charlottesville, VA. Electronic address:

Background: Red meat allergy has historically been understood as a rare disease of atopic children but the discovery of the 'α-Gal syndrome', which relates to IgE to the oligosaccharide galactose-α-1,3-galactose (α-Gal), has challenged that notion.

Objective: To describe the clinical and immunologic characteristics of a large group of subjects with self-reported allergy to mammalian meat.

Methods: This was an observational study of 261 children and adults (range 5-82 years) who presented for evaluation for allergic reactions to mammalian meat. Read More
