Pneumocystis pneumonia--Los Angeles.
TLDR
The occurrence of pneumocystosis in these 5 previously healthy men without a clinically apparent underlying immunodeficiency is unusual but seems to reflect some association with a homosexual lifestyle or disease acquired through sexual contact.
The medical effects of mold exposure.
Combined diesel exhaust particulate and ragweed allergen challenge markedly enhances human in vivo nasal ragweed-specific IgE and skews cytokine production to a T helper cell 2-type pattern.
TLDR
Investigation of the combined effects of intranasal challenge with DEP plus ragweed allergen on local humoral immune responses suggested a synergy between DEP and naturalAllergen exposure is suggested as a key feature in increasing allergenic-induced respiratory allergic disease.
Diesel exhaust particles induce local IgE production in vivo and alter the pattern of IgE messenger RNA isoforms.
TLDR
Results show that DEP exposure in vivo causes both quantitative and qualitative changes in local IgE production, and implication is that natural exposure to DEP may result in increased expression of respiratory allergic disease.
Review of alleged reaction to monosodium glutamate and outcome of a multicenter double-blind placebo-controlled study.
TLDR
Large doses of MSG given without food may elicit more symptoms than a placebo in individuals who believe that they react adversely to MSG, but the frequency of the responses was low and the responses reported were inconsistent and were not reproducible.
Immediate hypersensitivity reactions to beta-lactam antibiotics.
TLDR
The results of in-vivo challenges of patients with IgE to Penicillin suggest the incidence of reactivity of cephalosporins in patients allergic to penicillin is less than generally appreciated.
