New Trends in Allergy IV

There is no doubt among experts that the prevalence of allergic diseases has increased in many industrialized countries in recent years. The rea sons for this increase are unknown; only suppositions exist. Many people focus on environmental influences. However, the assumption that air pollution alone is responsible for this increase seems to be too simple: many other influences, including the genetic predisposition of individual patients, allergen exposure, and possibly socioeconomic factors, also have to be taken into consideration. Although our understanding of the complex mechanisms of allergic diseases has considerably improved thanks to the progress made in ex perimental immunology and allergology, we still have a long way to go before this scientific knowledge is translated into new therapeutic mo dalities. For this reason, the scientific community welcomed the gathering of scientists from very different disciplines and different parts of the world at an international symposium, "New Trends in Allergy IV" together with "Environmental Allergy and Allergotoxicology III" in Hamburg in 1995. This volume contains the invited papers, covering a wide range from basic science to practical clinical diagnosis and therapy. A further unique feature of this event was the concomitant first official workshop of the Environmental Pollution and Allergy Committee of the International Association of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (IAACI), at which the state of scientific knowledge in this field was defined and formulated.

New Trends in Allergy V

New Trends in Allergy V' is the fifth volume of a series focussing on new trends in experimental and clinical allergology. The interdisciplinary character is documented by articles from such different fields as basic immunology, chemistry, molecular biology, pharmacology, epidemiology, pneumology, dermatology, otolaryngology, pediatrics and psychosomatic medicine. Special emphasis is given to the role of both anthropogenic (pollutants) as well as natural environmental factors in the development of allergy. Among new pathophysiological concepts, dendritic cells, lymphocyte interactions, mast cells, eosinophils and neutrophils as well as psycho-neuro-immunological influences are featured. Practical aspects focus on asthma, rhinoconjunctivitis, atopic eczema, occupational and food allergy as well as anaphylaxis. The most recent therapeutic strategies comprise novel pharmacotherapy and allergen-specific as well as unspecific (e. g. anti-IgE) immunotherapy.

New Trends in Allergy III

The international symposium "New Trends in Allergy", held in Munich from July 13 to 15, 1990, brought together for the third time since 1980 some of the most experienced researchers working in the field of allergy. This volume comprises the papers presented at this meeting. All over the world, and not merely in the industrialized countries, allergy is becoming a cause of evermore serious diseases. In recent years, research in the field of allergy has provided numerous impor tant and fascinating results extending our knowledge considerably. Despite the new insights into basic mechanisms of allergic reactions, improved diagnostic methods, and new therapeutic approaches, how ever, many questions remain to be answered, including: Are allergies really increasing in frequency? If so, what are the reasons? Especially, does environmental pollution playa role? Which factors influence IgE synthesis? Can the IgE immune response be switched off? Does the nervous system interact with allergic reactions? If so, what are the mechanisms? Are new approaches in allergy prophylaxis and allergy therapy effi cient? What measures have proven useful and deserve to be employed in daily practice? In this volume, these questions and other current topics are dealt with. As each issue is covered by authors competent in the respective fields, the result is an extensive and critical review of the state of the art. Going through these papers, one comes to the conviction that allergy research is a multifacetted, explosively expanding, most stimulating field of work.

Allergy in Practice

Allergy is one of the major health problems of most modern societies. Although allergic diseases are well-known for almost two hundred years, their prevalence has increased dramatically over the last decades. Allergic reactions manifest in various organs, most commonly in the skin and mucous membranes, the frontier surfaces where the contact between the individual and the environment takes place. In a very concise and practical way this book covers all aspects of allergic reactions from pathophysiology to diagnosis, therapy and prevention with a strong focus on relevant aspects for the everyday work of the practising dermatologist and allergist in the hospital or office. This book reflects the rich personal experience of a German allergist with international training and reputation, who is active in immunology and allergy research and practice for almost 30 years. In this book, not only IgE-mediated allergic reactions are covered but all other kinds of allergies such as atopic eczema, contact dermatitis, drug eruptions, anaphylaxis and food allergies are equally represented as well as psychosomatic aspects and problems of environmental intolerances.

Redirection of Th1 and Th2 Responses

The two major subsets of CD4+ helper T cells, designated Th1 and Th2, have quite different patterns of cytokine production and, as a consequence, have very different roles in immune responses. The articles in this volume review both basic and clinical studies of T cell heterogeneity, including: the mechanisms by which Th1 and Th2 cells develop and maintain their differences in cytokine production; the different roles of Th1 and Th2 cells in allergy, autoimmunity and infectious diseases; the prospects and strategies for therapeutic manipulation of Th1 and Th2 cells; and the control of Th1 and Th2 responses by regulatory T cell subsets. The volume should give the reader a view of the development and function of Th1 and Th2 cells and the attempts to treat immunological diseases with therapies directed towards altering the Th1/Th2 balance.

Childhood Food Allergy in the New Zealand Context

Although food allergy has been extensively described, diagnosed, managed and researched, many questions still linger.

Childhood Food Allergy in the New Zealand Context

Although food allergy has been extensively described, diagnosed, managed and researched, many questions still linger. For over 2000 years scientists have sought to understand the effects of food on the human body. Hippocrates, the Father of Medicine, had recognition that food can cause illnesses, disease and health concerns for some people. In 1906, Dr Clemens von Pirquet suggested the use of the word "allergy" to describe an inappropriate reaction to food or other substances not typically harmful or bothersome. Researchers are just beginning to recognise potential influences on the development and progression of food allergy. The prevalence and incidence rates of food allergies worldwide have been the subject of much debate in recent decades due to what many observe as a dramatic increase in childhood food allergies. A food allergy touches the life of not only the individual diagnosed but also their family, friends, health care providers, food producers, retailers, and schools. The epidemiology of food allergy in New Zealand has been incompletely described and there is minimal published data that allows for any estimation of the disease burden caused by food allergy in New Zealand. Aims Although New Zealand has a high prevalence of asthma, the epidemiology of other atopic disease has not been studied. Based on other studies completed around the world and the data available in New Zealand this thesis set out to better understand: (1) temporal trends in food allergy; (2) prevalence of peanut allergy and risk factors for peanut allergy; and (3) the impact of childhood food allergy on quality of life. Methods To meet the objectives of this thesis four projects made up of five studies were completed. Each project utilised a different data set to allow comparisons to be made of data from New Zealand with that which has been reported from other countries and to provide several perspectives on how food allergies are impacting New Zealand children. 1) To determine whether Emergency Department presentations can be used to describe temporal trends in food allergy presentations an audit was completed for all emergency department (ED) presentations from 1988 to 2011 of children (0 to 14 years old) to the public hospital ED in the Auckland District Health Board (ADHB) region, for which the ICD codes 'anaphylaxis, unspecified' or 'allergy, unspecified', were assigned. 2) The new knowledge learnt from project one was then applied to the National Minimum Dataset (NMDS), a national collection of public and private hospital discharge information, temporal trends in emergency department (ED) presentations for food-related acute allergic reactions from 1988 to 2011 of children (0 to 14 years old) were investigated. 3) Utilising data from the Growing Up in New Zealand cohort study the prevalence of peanut allergy and factors associated with the presence of peanut allergy at age two years were investigated. 4) The impact of food allergy on quality of life was investigated through the use of reflexive photography, photo elicitation, and the autodriven interview with food allergic children and their families. Results Understanding Administrative Coding of Emergency Department Visits for Unspecified Acute Allergic Reactions The aim of this project was to determine the proportion of ED visits coded as 'anaphylaxis, unspecified' or 'allergy, unspecified' that are food-related allergic reactions. Food-related acute allergic reactions account for 29% of hospital presentations that were assigned a discharge code for 'anaphylaxis, unspecified' or 'allergy, unspecified in the ADHB. The ED presentation rate with food-related allergic reactions from 2004-2011 was almost twice as high as that which occurred from 1988-1995 (RR=1.98, 95%CI 1.10-3.72). By contrast, ED presentation rates for non-food-related allergic reactions did not change over these years. This apparent increase in New Zealand is consistent with observations using comparable data sources reported from Australia and the United States. Hospital Presentations Due to Acute Allergic Reactions Related to Food Between 1988 and 2011, 3,735 children 0 to 14 years old presented to a New Zealand hospital with an acute allergic reaction identified by ICD-9-CMA-II codes 692.5 (contact dermatitis and other eczema due to food in contact with), 693.1 (Dermatitis due to food taken internally), 995.0 (Anaphylactic reaction due to unspecified food), 995.3 (Allergy, unspecified), and 995.60-995.69 (Anaphylactic reaction due to food unspecified and specified). An average yearly increase of 8% in hospital presentations due to acute allergic reactions (p=

Allergic Rhinitis

Allergic rhinitis, while troublesome for a patient, may be also a challenge for the physician. That is why physicians must still learn more on the pathophysiology, clinical spectrum and novel diagnostic and therapeutic approaches to the disease. The chapters of this volume address a variety of important topics related to allergic rhinitis. They begin with a description of innovative translational approaches allowing for unification of animal and human models. Contributing authors provide up-to-date reviews of clinical aspects of allergic rhinitis in children, its association with bronchial asthma and other co-morbid conditions. They also discuss the impact of allergic rhinitis on sleep and sports. Together with articles on diagnostic approaches as well as novel treatments, the book offers a comprehensive and stimulating review of the topic. May this book find a wide readership among allergists and other physicians interested in allergic disease, and also among pediatricians, general practitioners and other specialists who increasingly have to deal with this seemingly benign, but sometimes extremely troublesome, disease.

Biofunctional Textiles and the Skin

In recent years the development of new technologies has permitted the production of 'functional' or 'smart' textiles. These fabrics are capable of sensing changes in environmental conditions or body functions and are adequately responding to them. They are able to absorb substances from the skin or to release therapeutic or cosmetic compounds. For instance, they can be used in underwear with an integrated cardio-online system or as textiles with carrier molecules. The focal point of interest in biofunctional textiles lies currently on the use of textiles supporting therapy and prevention in dermatology. This volume collects information about new trends in the interaction between textiles and the skin, particularly the development of antimicrobial finished textiles. It presents a selection of papers which will contribute to further consolidate the dialogue between dermatologists, allergologists, biomaterial scientists and textile engineers.

Atopic Dermatitis

This book presents the state of the art in research into atopic dermatitis, or atopic eczema, and provides numerous effective practical management recommendations that are grounded in the immense clinical experience of the author. A scientific evidence-based approach to the subject is adopted, progressing from clinical symptoms in different disease stages, molecular genetics, and pathophysiology through to treatment and prevention. All aspects of patient management are covered, including diagnostics, avoidance strategies, emollient therapy, and acute treatment of eczema and itch. Diverse special therapeutic approaches are discussed, ranging from glucocorticoids, topical calcineurin inhibitors, and antimicrobial therapy through to UV therapy, allergen-specific immunotherapy, systemic immunosuppressive therapy, and emerging options. Environmental influences are considered, and there is a focus on the whole human being, with attention to psychosocial aspects of the disease and the benefit of educational programs such as “eczema schools”. Atopic Dermatitis will be invaluable for dermatologists, allergists, pediatricians, and general practitioners and informative for other interested persons and sufferers.
