Evaluation, Diagnosis, and Treatment of Gastrointestinal Disorders in Individuals With ASDs: A Consensus Report
The consensus expert opinion of the panel was that individuals with ASDs deserve the same thoroughness and standard of care in the diagnostic workup and treatment of gastrointestinal concerns as should occur for patients without ASDs. Expand
IgE and non-IgE food allergy.
The clinical manifestations of FA may be the result of immunologic injury mediated by interaction of food antigens with contiguous elements of mucosal associated lymphoid tissue, modulated by relative imbalances of the Th1/Th2 paradigm. Expand
Guideline for the management of acute diarrhea in adults
Although the term ‘acute diarrhea’ commonly refers to infectious, toxin-induced and drug-induced diarrhea, there are specific acute diarrhea syndromes that may need a specifically tailored approach and management, and where the general algorithm may need to be modified. Expand
Eosinophilic gastrointestinal diseases (EGIDs).
Serum alpha l‐fucosidase enzyme activity in ovarian and other female genital tract tumors
Serum α‐l‐fucosidase enzyme activity can be useful as a tumor marker in diagnosing advanced malignant epithelial ovarian tumors, however, there is lack of data to support its usefulness in the diagnosis of early stage disease (Stage 1). Expand
Incidence and importance of Clostridium difficile in paediatric diarrhoea in Brazil.
Data suggest that investigation for C. difficile infection should be taken into account in paediatric diarrhoea in both inpatients and outpatients in developing countries. Expand
Abnormalities of Th1 function in non-IgE food allergy, celiac disease, and ileal lymphonodular hyperplasia: a new relationship?
The studies suggest that abnormalities in Th1 function may not only play a role in some patients with non-IgE-mediated FA in whom decreased Th 1 function is seen, but also in patients with celiac disease in whom an increased Th1function is seen. Expand
Allergy and Immunologic Disease: Working Group Report of the First World Congress of Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology, and Nutrition
The immunologic system of the GI tract plays a key role in such diverse disease processes as food hypersensitivity reactions, eosinophilic gastroenteritis, eOS inophilic esophagitis, celiac disease, autoimmune diseases, and inflammatory bowel diseases. Expand
Developmental immunology: clinical application to allergy-immunology.
Review of the current literature strongly suggests a relationship between delayed acquisition of Th1 function in the allergy-prone infant, not only as a predictive marker of susceptibility to the development of allergic disease but also as an explanation for the unique vulnerability of these infants to viral infection.
