White patients' physical responses to healthcare treatments are influenced by provider race and gender.

Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 2022 Jul 27;119(27):e2007717119. Epub 2022 Jun 27.

Department of Psychology, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305.

The healthcare workforce in the United States is becoming increasingly diverse, gradually shifting society away from the historical overrepresentation of White men among physicians. However, given the long-standing underrepresentation of people of color and women in the medical field, patients may still associate the concept of doctors with White men and may be physiologically less responsive to treatment administered by providers from other backgrounds. To investigate this, we varied the race and gender of the provider from which White patients received identical treatment for allergic reactions and measured patients' improvement in response to this treatment, thus isolating how a provider's demographic characteristics shape physical responses to healthcare.

State Key Laboratory of Food Science and Technology, School of Food Science and Technology, National Engineering Research Center for Functional Foods, School of Food Science Synergetic Innovation Center of Food Safety and Nutrition, Jiangnan University, Wuxi 214122, People's Republic of China.

Pru p 3, one of the most representative proteins of the lipid transfer proteins (LTPs), is responsible for clinical allergic reactions to food of peach origin. The identification of Pru p 3 epitopes is not comprehensive due to different methods and principles of epitope screening. In addition, evaluation of the stability of the epitopes and the validation of the immunological key amino acids still need further research. Read More

The Role of Early Life Microbiota Composition in the Development of Allergic Diseases.

Microorganisms 2022 Jun 9;10(6). Epub 2022 Jun 9.

Department of Clinical Veterinary Medicine, College of Veterinary Medicine, Jilin University, Changchun 130062, China.

Allergic diseases are becoming a major healthcare issue in many developed nations, where living environment and lifestyle are most predominantly distinct. Such differences include urbanized, industrialized living environments, overused hygiene products, antibiotics, stationary lifestyle, and fast-food-based diets, which tend to reduce microbial diversity and lead to impaired immune protection, which further increase the development of allergic diseases. At the same time, studies have also shown that modulating a microbiocidal community can ameliorate allergic symptoms. Read More

Early Use of ECMO for Refractory Kounis Syndrome Concealed by General Anesthesia-A Case Report.

Medicina (Kaunas) 2022 Jun 2;58(6). Epub 2022 Jun 2.

Department of Anesthesiology and Pain Medicine, Gyeongsang National University Changwon Hospital 11, Samjeongja-ro, Seongsan-gu, Changwon-si 51472, Korea.

A 46-year-old woman demonstrated refractory Kounis syndrome (KS) after induction of anesthesia. Despite conventional management of anaphylaxis and advanced cardiac life support, her cardiovascular function continued to deteriorate until she had a cardiac arrest, and after extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) therapy, electrical cardiac activity reappeared. A large number of patients with KS-"allergic angina syndrome"-has been known to recover well with vasodilators; however, this patient showed antibiotics-induced refractory KS during general anesthesia.

Department of Herbology, College of Korean Medicine, Sangji University, 83, Sangjidae-gil, Wonju-si 26339, Korea.

In this study, we aimed to evaluate the anti-inflammatory effects and mechanisms of CP and OA treatments in LPS-stimulated lung epithelial cells on overall chemokines and their receptors using PCR arrays. In addition, we aimed to confirm those effects and mechanisms in LPS-stimulated lung macrophages on some chemokines and cytokines. In our study, CP treatments significantly inhibited the inflammatory mediators CCL2, CCL3, CCL4, CCL5, CCL6, CCL9, CCL11, CCL17, CCL20, CXCL1, CXCL2, CXCL3, CXCL5, CXCL7, CXCL10, TNF-α, and IL-6, while markedly suppressing NF-κB p65 nuclear translocation and the phosphorylations of PI3K p55, Akt, Erk1/2, p38, and NF-κB p65 in LPS-stimulated lung epithelial cells.

The Role of Allergen-Specific Immunotherapy in ENT Diseases: A Systematic Review.

J Pers Med 2022 Jun 9;12(6). Epub 2022 Jun 9.

Unit of Otorhinolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery, Fondazione Policlinico Universitario A. Gemelli IRCCS, 00168 Rome, Italy.

Previous studies have demonstrated that both subcutaneous (SCIT) and sublingual specific immunotherapy (SLIT) are effective in treating allergic rhinitis (AR). Further studies have evaluated the efficacy of allergen-specific immunotherapy (AIT) on different ear, nose, and throat (ENT) manifestations, in which allergy might have an etiopathogenetic role, such as local allergic rhinitis (LAR), rhinosinusitis (RS), otitis media (OM), and adenotonsillar (AT) disease. Nevertheless, the management of allergy in ENT diseases is still debated. Read More

From Skin Barrier Dysfunction to Systemic Impact of Atopic Dermatitis: Implications for a Precision Approach in Dermocosmetics and Medicine.

J Pers Med 2022 May 28;12(6). Epub 2022 May 28.

La Roche-Posay International, 92300 Levallois-Perret, France.

Atopic dermatitis (AD) affects up to 20% of children and is considered the starting point of the atopic march with the development of food allergy, asthma, and allergic rhinitis. The heterogeneous phenotype reflects distinct and/or overlapping pathogenetic mechanisms with varying degrees of epidermal barrier disruption, activation of different T cell subsets and dysbiosis of the skin microbiome. Here, we review current evidence suggesting a systemic impact of the cutaneous inflammation in AD together with a higher risk of asthma and other comorbidities, especially in severe and persistent AD.

Immunological Pathomechanisms of Spongiotic Dermatitis in Skin Lesions of Atopic Dermatitis.

Int J Mol Sci 2022 Jun 15;23(12). Epub 2022 Jun 15.

Department of Geriatric Pathology, Tokyo Metropolitan Geriatric Hospital and Institute of Gerontology, 35-2 Sakaecho, Tokyo 173-0015, Japan.

Atopic dermatitis (AD) is a chronic pruritic skin disease with a complex pathogenesis underlying its heterogeneous clinical phenotypes and endotypes. The skin manifestation of AD reflects the cytokine milieu of a type-2-dominant immunity axis induced by genetic predisposition, innate immunity dysregulation, epidermal barrier defects, and allergic inflammation. However, the detailed pathomechanism of eczematous dermatitis, which is the principal characteristic of AD, remains unclear. Read More
