Mechanism and diagnosis of protein contact dermatitis.

Authors:
Annick Barbaud

Curr Opin Allergy Clin Immunol 2020 Apr;20(2):117-121

Sorbonne Université, INSERM, Institut Pierre Louis d'Epidemiologie et de Sante Publique, AP-HP. Sorbonne Universite, Tenon Hospital, Department of Dermatology and Allergology, Paris, France.

Purpose Of Review: Protein contact dermatitis (PCD) is a chronic eczema because of immediate hypersensitivity to protein and not related to haptens. As it has to be diagnosed by prick tests, it is probably under-recorded and under-estimated that is why it is important for dermatologists, allergists and occupational physicians to better know this peculiar contact dermatitis.

Recent Findings: Some recent series have emphasized that PCD is mainly an occupational dermatosis, mainly observed in food handlers. Read More

Sublingual Immunotherapy for Other Indications: Venom Large Local, Latex, Atopic Dermatitis, and Food.

Immunol Allergy Clin North Am 2020 02 31;40(1):41-57. Epub 2019 Oct 31.

San Antonio Asthma and Allergy Clinic, 2833 Babcock Road, Suite 304, San Antonio, TX 78229, USA.

There is some evidence to support the use of sublingual immunotherapy (SLIT) in food allergy, although its role is unclear. One randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial supports the safe and efficacious use of dust mite SLIT in children with mild to moderate atopic dermatitis, but these data have not been confirmed. Although there are several randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trials to support the use of SLIT-LATEX, this product is not available in the United States and extrapolation of these effects to latex extracts is unsubstantiated.

Occupational immunologic lung disease.

Allergy Asthma Proc 2019 11;40(6):418-420

Occupational immunologic lung disease is characterized by an immunologic response in the lung to an airborne agent inhaled in the work environment and can be subdivided into immunologically mediated occupational asthma (OA) and hypersensitivity pneumonitis (HP). Irritant-induced OA, a separate nonimmunologic entity, can be due to chronic exposure to inhaled irritants or reactive airways dysfunction syndrome (RADS). RADS is defined as an asthma-like syndrome that persists for >3 months and occurs within minutes to hours after a single exposure to a high concentration of a respiratory irritant. Read More

Effect of intravaginal vibratory versus electric stimulation on the pelvic floor muscles: A randomized clinical trial.

Eur J Obstet Gynecol Reprod Biol X 2019 Jul 12;3:100022. Epub 2019 May 12.

Graduate Program in Health Sciences: Gynecology and Obstetrics. Hospital de Clínicas de Porto Alegre. School of Medicine, Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul, Porto Alegre, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil.

Introduction: According to the International Urogynecological Association and International Continence Society people with normal pelvic floor muscle function should have the ability to voluntarily and involuntarily contract and relax these muscles. However, many women are unaware of their pelvic floor, and it is estimated that about 30-50% do not know how to actively contract these muscles. Within this context, therapeutic strategies to improve pelvic floor muscle strength and function are particularly relevant. Read More

Understanding how consumers with food allergies make decisions based on precautionary labelling.

Clin Exp Allergy 2019 11 7;49(11):1446-1454. Epub 2019 Oct 7.

Manchester Institute of Biotechnology, Division of Infection, Inflammation and Respiratory Medicine, School of Biological Sciences, Manchester Academic Health Science Centre, The University of Manchester, Manchester, UK.

Background: Understanding consumer perceptions is crucial if effective food safety policy and risk communication are to be developed and implemented. We sought to understand how those living with food allergy assess risk with precautionary allergen labelling (PAL) and their preference in how risks are communicated within a quantitative risk assessment (QRA) framework.

Methods: The Integrated Approaches to Food Allergen and Allergy Risk Management (iFAAM) labelling online survey was developed for adults and parents of children with food allergy and distributed across Germany, Ireland, Netherlands, Spain and UK via patient support groups. Read More

Severe and near-fatal anaphylactic reactions triggered by chlorhexidine-coated catheters in patients undergoing renal allograft surgery: a case series.

Can J Anaesth 2019 Dec 1;66(12):1483-1488. Epub 2019 Jul 1.

Division of Allergy and Clinical Immunology, Department of Medicine, St. Michael's Hospital, University of Toronto, Toronto, ON, Canada.

Purpose: Although intraoperative anaphylaxis during surgery is a rare event, we describe five patients who experienced perioperative anaphylactic reactions during renal transplantation and were referred for investigation.

Clinical Features: Skin-prick and intradermal skin tests were done to investigate potential allergies to drugs given perioperatively prior to the development of anaphylaxis, including basiliximab, propofol, cefazolin, cis-atracurium, fentanyl, latex, remifentanil, and chlorhexidine. In addition, in vitro serologic testing for specific IgE was done in patients suspected to have had chlorhexidine anaphylaxis. Read More
