Prevalence of challenge-proven IgE-mediated food allergy using population-based sampling and predetermined challenge criteria in infants.
More than 10% of 1-year-old infants had challenge-proven IgE-mediated food allergy to one of the common allergenic foods of infancy, suggesting the high prevalence of allergic disease in Australia requires further investigation and may be related to modifiable environmental factors. Expand
A global survey of changing patterns of food allergy burden in children
There remains a need to gather more accurate data on the prevalence of food allergy in many developed and developing countries to better anticipate and address the rising community and health service burden of food allergies. Expand
Iron-overload-related disease in HFE hereditary hemochromatosis.
Male C282Y homozygotes with a serum ferritin level of 1000 mug per liter or more were more likely to report fatigue, use of arthritis medicine, and a history of liver disease than were men who had the wild-type gene. Expand
International consensus guidelines for the diagnosis and management of food protein–induced enterocolitis syndrome: Executive summary—Workgroup Report of the Adverse Reactions to Foods Committee,
These are the first international evidence‐based guidelines to improve the diagnosis and management of patients with FPIES and will be updated periodically as more evidence becomes available. Expand
Establishment of Reference Doses for residues of allergenic foods: report of the VITAL Expert Panel.
In 2011, an expert panel was assembled to establish appropriate Reference Doses for allergenic food residues as a part of the VITAL (Voluntary Incidental Trace Allergen Labeling) program of TheExpand
The Prevalence of Tree Nut Allergy: A Systematic Review
Monitoring time trends of tree nut allergy prevalence (both overall and by individual nuts) as well as the prevalence of OAS should be considered given the context of the overall recent rise in IgE-mediated food allergy prevalence in the developed world. Expand
Management Guidelines of Eosinophilic Esophagitis in Childhood
EoE is a chronic, relapsing inflammatory disease with largely unquantified long-term consequences, and better maintenance treatment as well as biomarkers for assessing treatment response and predicting long- term complications is urgently needed. Expand
Allergen reference doses for precautionary labeling (VITAL 2.0): clinical implications.
BACKGROUND There has been a dramatic proliferation of precautionary labeling by manufacturers to mitigate the perceived risk from low-level contamination from allergens in food. This has resulted inExpand
Skin prick test responses and allergen-specific IgE levels as predictors of peanut, egg, and sesame allergy in infants.
These 95% PPVs, which were generated from a unique dataset, are valuable for the diagnosis of food allergy in young infants and were robust when stratified across a number of different risk factors. Expand
Diagnosis and management of iron deficiency anaemia: a clinical update
New‐generation IV products, supported by high‐quality evidence of safety and efficacy, may facilitate rapid administration of higher doses of iron, and may make it easier to integrate IV iron replacement into routine care. Expand
