BACKGROUND The ultrarush protocol is an attractive approach in the buildup phase of venom immunotherapy (VIT-UR). However, the degree of risk of VIT-UR in children remains unknown. The objective of this study was to compare the safety of VIT-UR in children and adults. METHODS We performed a study based on prospectively gathered medical records of children(More)
BACKGROUND The prevalence of insect venom allergy is still being assessed. The aim of our study was to estimate, on the basis of an interviewer-administered questionnaire survey, the frequency of post-sting allergic reactions and venom sensitization. MATERIAL/METHODS The study was performed within the framework of the ECRHS. A random sampling of 3000(More)
UNLABELLED The ARIA study demonstrates the correlation between bronchial asthma (BA) and perennial rhinitis (PR) with mite or animal fur allergies. There are no reports concerning correlation between BA and PR with mould allergy. The authors of this study estimated the prevalence of BA in patients with PR, allergic to moulds in comparison with patients(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of the study is to prove that Saccharomyces cerevisiae enolase, the major allergen of the baker's yeast, induces allergic immediate response in patients with inhalant allergy sensitized to Candida albicans extract. MATERIAL AND METHODS The study was performed in three groups of patients: I. 20 atopic patients with respiratory allergy(More)
The study compares results of skin test and assessments of venom specific IgE levels (FAST) in patients with Hymenoptera sting allergic reactions. Results of the two diagnostic methods show considerable correlation. Positive correlation occurred in 90% of the patients (92.4% bee venom sensitive allergic patients and 80% wasp venom sensitive patients).(More)
It has been reported that fractioned exhaled nitric oxide (FENO) can be used for monitoring airway inflammation and for asthma management but conclusions drawn by different researchers are controversial. The aim of our study was to evaluate the clinical usefulness of FENO assessment for monitoring asthma during pregnancy. We monitored 72 pregnant asthmatics(More)
Hymenoptera venom allergy (HVA) is a typical IgE-dependent allergy. Its diagnosis includes confirmation of the presence of specific IgE antibodies to venom allergens (vsIgE), and its treatment is based on developing of immunotolerance (venom immunotherapy, VIT). In most cases of sting anaphylaxis, vsIgE can be found, in some, however, the antibodies are(More)
