Postgraduate Program in Biomedical Engineering-PPGEB at Gama-FGA, University of Brasília-UnB, Brasília 72.444-240, Brazil.

Wound healing is a perfectly coordinated cascade of cellular, molecular, and biochemical events which interact in tissue reconstitution. Chronic diseases such as pressure ulcers (PU) and diabetes mellitus (DM) are considered risk factors for wound healing. Patients with such diseases often have higher sepsis, infection, and complication rates, since they have revascularization inhibition and low growth factor expression. Read More

In vitro diagnostic tests for perioperative hypersensitivity, a narrative review: potential, limitations, and perspectives.

Br J Anaesth 2019 Feb 11. Epub 2019 Feb 11.

Department of Immunology, Allergology, and Rheumatology, University Antwerp, Antwerp University Hospital, Antwerp, Belgium.

Correct diagnostic management of perioperative hypersensitivity aims to identify the underlying mechanism(s), responsible culprit(s), and safe alternative drugs or techniques. Although drug provocation tests are considered the gold standard, diagnosis of perioperative hypersensitivity mainly relies on skin testing. Use of in vitro tests, such as quantification of specific immunoglobulin E antibodies, serum tryptase, and plasma histamine, as well as basophil activation tests is becoming widespread. Read More

Basophil activation testing in occupational respiratory allergy to low molecular weight compounds.

Curr Opin Allergy Clin Immunol 2019 Apr;19(2):92-97

Department of Occupational Lung Disease, Royal Brompton Hospital, London SW3 6LR.

Purpose Of Review: There is an unmet need for better immunological tests in cases of suspected occupational asthma to many workplace chemicals; here we consider the basophil activation test (BAT), a potential alternative to the detection of specific IgE antibodies.

Recent Findings: BAT is fairly widely used in general allergy services; and there is increasing experience of its use in the diagnosis of occupational allergy to low molecular weight agents and chemicals including wood dusts, persulphates, antibiotics and latex.

Summary: There is potential for BAT to become a useful tool in the clinical consideration of occupational asthma and of its mechanisms, and even to take a place in a Bayesian-based diagnostic algorithm. Read More

Profile Shift in Latex Sensitization over the Last 20 Years.

Int Arch Allergy Immunol 2019;178(1):83-88. Epub 2018 Sep 13.

Department of Dermatology, Venereology, and Allergology, University Medical Center, Georg August University, Göttingen,

Background: Natural rubber latex (NRL) allergy is commonly diagnosed according to medical history, skin allergy tests, and serological analyses. However, skin tests are increasingly being abandoned because of (i) their time-consuming nature, (ii) latex preparations for skin tests being not commercially available, and (iii) the use of in-house prepared test solutions is becoming ever more difficult due to increasing regulatory hurdles. In this light, we have evaluated differences in the profiles of current and former patients with suspected latex allergy. Read More

Monika Raulf

Mol Immunol 2018 08 9;100:21-27. Epub 2018 Apr 9.

Institute for Prevention and Occupational Medicine of the German Social Accident Insurance, Institute of the Ruhr-Universität Bochum (IPA), Bochum, Germany. Electronic address:

We are now in the epoch of "molecular allergology" and numerous clinically relevant allergenic molecules are available improving the performance of in vitro allergen tests and allergen detection methods. This review is focusing on characterized occupational allergens and their implementation into the in vitro diagnosis for occupational allergy and in allergen detection methods. More than 400 occupational agents are identified and documented as being 'respiratory sensitizers', but currently only a limited number of them are characterized on the molecular level and available for routine diagnosis as native or recombinant allergens.
