Metreleptin treatment for congenital generalized lipodystrophy type 4 (CGL4): a case report.

Clin Pediatr Endocrinol 2019 31;28(1):1-7. Epub 2019 Jan 31.

Department of Pediatrics, Osaka University Graduate School of Medicine, Osaka, Japan.

Congenital generalized lipodystrophy type 4 (CGL4) is a rare disease caused by mutations in the gene polymerase I and transcript release factor (), the main symptoms of which are systemic reductions in adipose tissue and muscular dystrophy. The strategy of treating CGL4 is to improve the insulin resistance and hypertriglyceridemia that result from systemic reductions in adipose tissue. Metreleptin, a synthetic analog of human leptin, is effective against generalized lipodystrophies; however, there are no reports of the use of metreleptin in the treatment of CGL4. Read More

Guiding Principles for the Recognition, Diagnosis, and Management of Infants with Anaphylaxis: An Expert Panel Consensus.

J Allergy Clin Immunol Pract 2019 Feb 5. Epub 2019 Feb 5.

Division of Allergy and Immunology, University of Tennessee Health Science Center, Memphis, Tenn.

Infant anaphylaxis is an emerging risk, with food allergy the most common cause. Although the presentation of anaphylaxis involves the same systems as in older children and adults, there are real-world challenges to identifying symptoms of an allergic emergency in nonverbal children, as well as implementing optimal treatment. Recognition of anaphylaxis in infants can be challenging because allergic symptoms and certain normal infant behaviors may overlap. Read More

Managing Cross-Reactivity in Those with Peanut Allergy.

J Allergy Clin Immunol Pract 2019 Feb 22;7(2):381-386. Epub 2018 Nov 22.

Department of Child and Adolescent, Medical School of the University of Geneva, University Hospitals of Geneva, Geneva, Switzerland.

Peanut is an allergenic legume that can cross-react with other plant-based foods, notably other legumes and tree nuts. Peanut-allergic individuals can be both cosensitized and coallergic to such items, requiring foresight when eliciting a clinical history of a reaction, in the diagnostic evaluation of such allergies, and in the counseling of patients as to food avoidances after a diagnosis is made. Legume allergens belong to the Fabaceae family and encompass the cupin, prolamin, PR-10, and lipid transfer protein families, which mediate cross-sensitization including that between peanut and tree nut.

Liver-associated immune abnormalities.

Autoimmun Rev 2019 Jan 5;18(1):15-20. Epub 2018 Nov 5.

University of Toronto, Toronto, Ontario, Canada; Division of Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition, Department of Pediatrics, Hospital for Sick Children, Toronto, Canada.

In recent years, the cross talk between the liver and the immune system is being uncovered, in part by studying liver involvement in primary immune deficiencies (PID) and in part by investigating the alterations of the immune system following orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT). Here we review some of the reciprocal interactions between the liver and the immune system. Patients with PID, particularly those involving inherited defects in T and B cells or innate immunity are prone to infections and inflammatory responses that often involve the liver. Read More

A pediatric case of anaphylactic shock induced by tipepidine hibenzate (Asverin).

Asia Pac Allergy 2018 Oct 18;8(4):e37. Epub 2018 Oct 18.

Department of Pediatrics, Chiba Kaihin Municipal Hospital, Chiba 261-0012, Japan.

Tipepidine hibenzate (Asverin) is commonly used as an antitussive drug for acute and chronic cough in various age groups and is generally safe and well-tolerated. However, we experienced a case of tipepidine hibenzate-induced anaphylactic shock in a 1-year-old boy. After ingesting cold medication including tipepidine hibenzate, the patient presented with generalized erythema and urticaria, swollen face, coughing, wheezing and vomiting, together with hypotension and a decreased level of consciousness.

Preventive sublingual immunotherapy with House Dust Mite extract modulates epitope diversity in pre-school children.

Allergy 2018 Nov 5. Epub 2018 Nov 5.

Department of Paediatrics and Adolescent Medicine, Medical University of Vienna, Vienna, Austria.

Background: The preventive effect of allergen immunotherapy (AIT) on allergy and asthma development is currently assessed using primary and secondary AIT approaches. Knowledge of the immunological effects of these interventions is limited and the impact on epitope diversity remains to be defined.

Methods: We used high-density peptide arrays that included all known Dermatophagoides pteronyssinus (Der p) and Dermatophagoides farinae (Der f) allergens and the whole proteome of Der f to study changes in House Dust Mite (HDM) linear peptide recognition during a 2-year preventive double-blind placebo-controlled sublingual HDM AIT pilot study in 2-5-year-old children with sensitization to HDM but without symptoms.

Mast cell disorders: From infancy to maturity.

Allergy 2019 Jan 28;74(1):53-63. Epub 2018 Nov 28.

Lydia Becker Institute of Immunology and Inflammation, University of Manchester, Manchester, UK.

Mast cells are typically linked to immediate hypersensitivity and anaphylaxis. This review looks beyond this narrow role, focusing on how these cells have evolved and diversified via natural selection promoting serine protease gene duplication, augmenting their innate host defense function against helminths and snake envenomation. Plasticity of mast cell genes has come at a price. Read More
