Correct management of latex allergy is essential to ensure adequate care of patients who are allergic to latex, which is ubiquitous in the health care setting. In this Position Paper, the Latex Committee of the Spanish Society of Allergology and Clinical Immunology provides guidelines for the management of latex allergy.
The in vitro activity of several β-lactam agents, macrolides, and cotrimoxazole was investigated against 53Streptococcus pneumoniae isolates recovered from healthy children. The rates of resistance to penicillin or amoxicillin, cefaclor, and cefuroxime were 30%, 51%, and 37%, respectively. No cefotaxime-resistant isolates were found. Rates of resistance to(More)
BACKGROUND Allergy to plant-derived fresh foods has often been reported in geographical areas where birch or ragweed pollens are frequent and has been attributed to cross-reactivity to pollens. OBJECTIVE The aim of this study has been to evaluate allergy to plant-derived fresh foods among pollen-allergic patients from a birch and ragweed-free area. (More)
1. A sustained high glomerular filtration rate in diabetes mellitus is associated with increased proximal reabsorption, suggesting alterations in the tubuloglomerular feedback system. To test this hypothesis, renal function was studied in eight control subjects and 14 recent-onset euglycaemic insulin-dependent diabetic patients before and after infusion of(More)
Software Engineering (SE) is a field without too much historic background. The youth of the SE discipline is resulted in an immaturity of this research field and SE research still lacks suitable scientific precision. Moreover, in SE research there are several objects of study with different nature each of them and, for this reason, different research and(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to develop a quantitative skin test assay for measurement of the biologic activity of food allergen extracts, as well as to report the results obtained with a peach extract labeled in food biological units (FBUs). METHODS We prepared a biologically quantified peach extract. The biologic activity was measured in FBUs by(More)
Cross-reactivity between quinolones is uncertain. Recently, we studied three patients who had developed suspected allergic reactions to a quinolone. For all of them we performed skin test, histamine release test, RAST, and oral provocation with the suspected quinolone and also with another quinolone of the opposite generation. Five atopic and five nonatopic(More)
BACKGROUND Fruit allergy has been attributed to cross-reactive IgE to pollens and has been associated with a particular pollen sensitization. OBJECTIVE The aim of the study was to evaluate sensitization to several taxonomically unrelated pollens in peach- and pollen-allergic patients and to study cross-reactivity between them. METHODS One hundred(More)
Since 1979 several reports of contact urticaria due to natural latex have been well documented. Recent case reports suggest that rhinitis and asthma may also be due to rubber exposure. We describe an operating room nurse who was exposed at work to natural rubber (latex) due to the use of latex surgical gloves. After 25 years, she developed contact(More)
