Basophil Activation Test for Allergy Diagnosis.

J Vis Exp 2021 May 31(171). Epub 2021 May 31.

Allergy Unit, Hospital Regional Universitario de Málaga; Allergy Research Group, Instituto de Investigación Biomédica de Málaga-IBIMA; Departamento de Medicina, Universidad de Málaga; Nanostructures for Diagnosing and Treatment of Allergic Diseases Laboratory, Andalusian Center for Nanomedicine and Biotechnology-BIONAND.

The basophil activation test (BAT) is a complementary in vitro diagnostic test that can be used in addition to clinical history, skin test (ST), and specific IgE (sIgE) determination in the evaluation of IgE-mediated allergic reactions to food, insect venom, drugs, as well as some forms of chronic urticaria. However, the role of this technique in the diagnostic algorithms is highly variable and not well determined. BAT is based on the determination of basophil response to allergen/drug cross-linking IgE activation through the measurement of activation markers (such as CD63, CD203c) by flow cytometry. Read More

Research on Characteristic of Chronic Spontaneous Urticaria Based on Multiscale Entropy.

Comput Math Methods Med 2021 25;2021:6691356. Epub 2021 May 25.

College of Mathematical Sciences, Harbin Engineering University, Harbin 150001, China.

Chronic spontaneous urticaria (CSU) is a common skin disease which symptom is local pruritus and pain. In medicine, researchers take a certain point that the brain is the control center of CSU, but in previous experiments, the researchers found that cerebellum also had a certain effect on CSU. In order to find out the influence of CSU in the brain and cerebellum, we collected the brain resting-state fMRI data from 40 healthy controls and 32 CSU patients and used DPABI to preprocess.

Lipid transfer protein syndrome due to wild grape juice and various vegetables: A life-threatening food allergen.

J Dermatol 2021 Jun 11. Epub 2021 Jun 11.

Department of Dermatology, Iwate Medical University School of Medicine, Shiwa-gun, Japan.

We report a 16-year-old Japanese male with mugwort pollinosis in whom ingestion of wild grape juice and various vegetables caused recurrent general urticaria, abdominal pain, dyspnea, and loss of consciousness. A skin prick test demonstrated positive reactions to a wide variety of both non-heated and heated vegetables and fruits such as wild grape, bell pepper, onion, Chinese cabbage, tomato, eggplant, and broccoli. The serum immunoglobulin E levels (ImmunoCAP ISAC ) for Art v 3, Pla a 3, Pru p 3, and Jug r 3, which are lipid transfer protein (LTP) homologs, were positive but those for Bet v 1 and Bet v 2 were negative.

What's New in the Treatment of Urticaria and Angioedema.

J Allergy Clin Immunol Pract 2021 Jun;9(6):2170-2184

Department for Children and Adolescents, University Hospital Frankfurt, Goethe University, Theodor-Stern-Kai 7, Frankfurt, Germany.

Chronic urticaria and angioedema are diseases often managed by Allergy and Immunology specialists. Recent international guidelines have outlined a stepwise approach to management of patients using dose escalation of second-generation antihistamines followed by use of omalizumab and finally cyclosporine in more refractory cases. In select patients (those with refractory chronic urticaria), nonbiologic alternative medications with anti-inflammatory or immunosuppressant activity may be considered. Read More

Triggers of Exacerbation in Chronic Urticaria and Recurrent Angioedema-Prevalence and Relevance.

J Allergy Clin Immunol Pract 2021 Jun;9(6):2160-2168

Clinical Faculty, University of Texas Southwestern Medical School, Allergy and Asthma Specialists, Dallas, Texas. Electronic address:

Patients with urticaria and angioedema often have triggers that cause an outbreak or a swelling episode or worsen their chronic condition. Exploring these factors with each patient may result in better understanding and control of their disease. Patients should be advised to avoid known triggers, if feasible, or prepare to prevent or control an exacerbation with appropriate pretreatment if avoidance is not possible. Read More

How to Measure Disease Activity, Impact, and Control in Patients with Recurrent Wheals, Angioedema, or Both.

J Allergy Clin Immunol Pract 2021 Jun;9(6):2151-2157

Division of Clinical Immunology and Allergy, Department of Medicine, McMaster University, Hamilton, ON, Canada.

Chronic spontaneous urticaria and chronic inducible urticaria are characterized by wheals, angioedema, or both, whereas other conditions such as hereditary angioedema present only with angioedema. The unpredictability of outbreaks, disfigurement, pruritus, and associated sleep and work disturbance can cause a significant impact on quality of life (QoL). Significant breakthroughs in the understanding of these conditions in recent years have led to the development of novel therapies. Read More

Passive immune basophil activation test for the identification of allergic episodes from various adverse events elicited by haematopoietic cell transplantation: A pilot study.

Vox Sang 2021 Jun 3. Epub 2021 Jun 3.

Research and Development, Japanese Red Cross Kinki Block Blood Center, Ibaraki, Japan.

Background And Objectives: Haematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT) therapy tends to be associated with various complications including engraftment failure, regimen-related toxicities, and infectious diseases. In addition, HC infusion itself occasionally elicits adverse events (AEs), one of the most common AEs is an allergic reaction. As appropriate laboratory tests have not yet been established to distinguish allergy-mediated AEs from other complications, clinical responses for HCT-related AEs can only be nonspecific. Read More
