Eosinophilic esophagitis: updated consensus recommendations for children and adults.
TLDR
A new conceptual definition is proposed highlighting that EoE represents a chronic, immune/antigen-mediated disease characterized clinically by symptoms related to esophageal dysfunction and histologically by eosinophil-predominant inflammation. Expand
Guidelines for the diagnosis and management of food allergy in the United States: report of the NIAID-sponsored expert panel.
TLDR
The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, working with 34 professional organizations, federal agencies, and patient advocacy groups, led the development of clinical guidelines for the diagnosis and management of food allergy, which include a consensus definition for food allergy. Expand
Second symposium on the definition and management of anaphylaxis: summary report--Second National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease/Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Network symposium.
TLDR
There is no universal agreement on the definition of anaphylaxis or the criteria for diagnosis, so representatives from 16 different organizations or government bodies, including representatives from North America, Europe, and Australia, to continue working toward a universally accepted definition. Expand
Update on food allergy.

  • 1 May 2004
TLDR
The recent successful clinical trial of anti-IgE therapy in patients with peanut allergy and the number of immunomodulatory therapies in the pipeline provide real hope that the authors will soon be able to treat patients with food allergy. Expand
Food allergy: Epidemiology, pathogenesis, diagnosis, and treatment.
TLDR
Advances and updates in the epidemiology, pathogenesis, diagnosis, and treatment of food allergy over the past 3 years are focused on, with incorporation of extensively heated forms of milk and egg into the diets of children who tolerate these foods represents a significant shift in clinical approach. Expand
Second symposium on the definition and management of anaphylaxis: summary report--second National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease/Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Network symposium.
TLDR
There is no universal agreement on the definition of anaphylaxis or the criteria for diagnosis, so representatives from 16 different organizations or government bodies, including representatives from North America, Europe, and Australia, to continue working toward a universally accepted definition. Expand
US prevalence of self-reported peanut, tree nut, and sesame allergy: 11-year follow-up.
TLDR
Although caution is required in comparing surveys, peanut allergy, TN allergy, or both continue to be reported by more than 1% of the US population and appear to be increasingly reported among children over the past decade. Expand
Utility of food-specific IgE concentrations in predicting symptomatic food allergy.

  • Medicine
  • The Journal of allergy and clinical immunology
  • 1 May 2001
TLDR
Quantification of food-specific IgE is a useful test for diagnosing symptomatic allergy to egg, milk, peanut, and fish in the pediatric population and could eliminate the need to perform double-blind, placebo-controlled food challenges in a significant number of children. Expand
Food allergy.
TLDR
Management of food allergies consists of educating the patient to avoid ingesting the responsible allergen and to initiate therapy in case of an unintended ingestion, and novel diagnostic methods, including ones that focus on immune responses to specific food proteins or epitopes of specific proteins, are under study. Expand
Anaphylaxis and emergency treatment.
TLDR
Clinical trials are now under way for the treatment of patients with peanut anaphylaxis using recombinant humanized anti-immunoglobulin E antibody therapy, and novel immunomodulatory therapies are being tested in animal models of peanut-induced anAPHylaxis. Expand
