Experimental in silico, in vitro, and rodent models for screening and predicting protein sensitizing potential are discussed, including whether there is evidence of new sensitizations and allergies since the introduction of genetically modified crops in 1996, the importance of linear versus conformational epitopes, and protein families that become(More)
During a fifteen-year period 1,106 patients underwent Cloward's operation due to cervical disc disease. An analysis of the clinical features showed that the diseases had a very complex pattern of symptoms and signs. In young patients a syndrome of herniated disc predominated whereas a clinical picture of "cervical spondylosis" was found more often in the(More)
During the period from April, 1965, to October, 1979, 1,106 patients with symptoms or signs of cervical disc disease were operated on using Cloward's technique. 94% of the patients alive filled in a questionnaire forwarded on October, 1980. The study revealed that 81% experienced an immediate effect of the operation, and 63% were in a better condition than(More)
BACKGROUND IgE-binding of process-modified foods or proteins is the most common method for examination of how food processing affects allergenicity of food allergens. How processing affects sensitization capacity is generally studied by administration of purified food proteins or food extracts and not allergens present in their natural food matrix. (More)
BACKGROUND Characterisation of the specific antibody response, including the epitope binding pattern, is an essential task for understanding the molecular mechanisms of food allergy. Examination of antibody formation in a controlled environment requires animal models. The purpose of this study was to examine the amount and types of antibodies raised against(More)
BACKGROUND Acid hydrolyzed wheat proteins (HWPs) are used in the food and cosmetic industry as emulsifiers. Cases of severe food allergic reactions caused by HWPs have been reported. Recent data suggest that these reactions are caused by HWPs produced by acid hydrolysis. OBJECTIVES To examine the sensitizing capacity of gluten proteins per se when altered(More)
BACKGROUND Atrial fibrillation (AF) is a major cause of stroke. Therefore, all patients with ischemic stroke or transient ischemic attack (TIA) should be examined with 12-lead electrocardiogram (ECG) and continuous monitoring to detect AF. Current guidelines recommend at least 24 h continuous ECG monitoring, which is primarily based on studies investigating(More)
