Dupilumab: A Review of Present Indications and Off-Label Uses.

J Investig Allergol Clin Immunol 2022 Apr 3;32(2):97-115. Epub 2021 Mar 3.

Allergy Service, Hospital Universitario de Salamanca, Spain.

Recent advances in our understanding of T2 inflammation have revealed more diseases in which T2 inflammation is involved. Dupilumab is a recently developed monoclonal antibody that blocks signaling of IL-4 and IL-13, both of which are crucial cytokines in the T2 response. New possible indications are increasingly explored and include skin diseases, such as prurigo nodularis, nummular eczema, allergic contact dermatitis, chronic hand eczema, spontaneous chronic urticaria, bullous pemphigoid, alopecia areata, and Netherton syndrome, as well as respiratory diseases, such as allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis, chronic eosinophilic pneumonia, and allergic rhinitis.

Cutaneous manifestations in an Italian military COVID hub.

G Ital Dermatol Venereol 2020 Oct;155(5):632-635

Unit of Dermatology and Venereology, Celio Military Hospital, Rome, Italy.

J Dtsch Dermatol Ges 2019 10 27;17(10):1039-1051. Epub 2019 Sep 27.

Department of Dermatology, University Hospital, Jena, Germany.

Eosinophilic dermatoses are a heterogeneous group of diseases, characterized by an eosinophil-rich infiltrate and/or degranulation of eosinophils. Blood eosinophilia may be an associated feature. Typical, albeit not specific histological findings include 'flame figures', which are caused by the accumulation of cationic proteins released by eosinophils and subsequent collagen denaturation.

Cosmetic components causing contact urticaria: a review and update.

Contact Dermatitis 2016 Dec 4;75(6):333-344. Epub 2016 Sep 4.

Department of Dermatology, University Hospitals KU Leuven, Leuven, 3000, Belgium.

The main objective of this article is to provide an update of the literature concerning immediate-type reactions or contact urticaria/contact urticaria syndrome caused by cosmetic ingredients in terms of immediate clinical symptoms, positive reactions following open, scratch or, most often, prick testing, and sometimes the detection of specific IgE antibodies. To this end, a selective search in different medical literature databases was performed. Read More

[Mucosal diseases from an allergological perspective].

Hautarzt 2016 Oct;67(10):780-785

Univ. Klinik für Dermatologie, LKH Graz, Auenbruggerplatz 8, 8036, Graz, Österreich.

The oral allergy syndrome is one of the most common form of food allergy and manifests as contact urticaria of the oral mucosa after consumption of cross reacting foods. Whereas allergic contact stomatitis often occurs due to dental materials, allergic contact cheilitis is usually a reaction due to topical therapeutics like herpes ointments or lip care products. As late type reactions are more frequent than immediate type reactions in the anogenital mucosa, contact dermatitis in this area should be identified via epicutaneous testing. Read More
