The study was conducted to investigate the relationship between the aero-allergens and the frequency of HLA-DRB1*11 and HLA-DRB1*12allele in aeroallergen sensitized individuals.
Aeroallergen sensitisation is common in AD patients, and in the EPAAC (Early Prevention of Asthma and Allergies in Children) study, 20-40% of AD patients were sensitised to house-dust mite.
Food allergen and aeroallergen testing by SPTs was performed at the Allergy Testing Department, Clinical Department for Children's Diseases, Tuzla UCC.
A skin prick test was performed using an aeroallergen kit that contained house dust mite, tree pollen, a mixture of herb-grain pollen, fungus, and animal epithelium-dander, and a food allergen kit containing milk and egg.
We used the following major search terms as Medical Subject Headings (MeSH) and all-field text words, as appropriate: immunology, pollen, aeroallergen, allergy, allergens, atopy, sensitize (or sensitise), sensitized (or sensitised), sensitization (or sensitisation), hypersensitivity, skin test, and Immunoglobulin E.
Omalizumab is currently approved for two indications in people aged 12 and older: moderate to severe persistent asthma in patients with a positive skin test or in vitro reactivity to a perennial aeroallergen and symptoms that are inadequately controlled with inhaled corticosteroids; and chronic idiopathic urticaria in people who remain symptomatic despite Hi-antihistamine treatment.
As assessed by multivariate logistic regression analysis including age, history of wheezing, aeroallergen, family history in the model, RV infection was independently associated with a higher risk of earlier wheezing episodes (OR, 3.
The rates of elevated serum IgE, eosinophilia, and aeroallergen sensitization of our study group were compatible with literature data [31].
Con este captador se detecta concentraciones de polen de olivo diarias en el aire (granos de polen/m3), siguiendo el protocolo estandarizado de la Red Espanola de Aerobiologia (REA) (9) y cumpliendo las minimas recomendaciones propuestas por la European Aeroallergen Network (EAN) (10).
This is why current practice guidelines, published in 2012, say only that clinicians "might consider" allergen immunotherapy in selected patients with AD with aeroallergen sensitivity, and the research community has been striving to standardize outcome measures using two published eczema scoring systems, EASI (Eczema Area and Severity Index) and SCORAD (Severity Scoring of Atopic Dermatitis).
