BACKGROUND Atopic dermatitis is commonly associated with food allergy. In addition to skin prick tests (SPTs) and measurements of specific IgE levels, the atopy patch test (APT) has recently been introduced into the diagnostic procedure for food allergy. OBJECTIVE Our aim was to evaluate whether a combination of allergologic tests could improve the(More)
We performed a randomized trial to compare the safety and immunogenicity of two combined measles, mumps and rubella vaccines in healthy children 14-24 months of age. Triviraten Berna Vaccine (Swiss Serum and Vaccine Institute), contains the Edmonston Zagreb 19 strain of measles virus, the Rubini mumps virus strain and the Wistar RA 27/3 rubella strain while(More)
A total of 175 newly admitted inpatients who lived with their families were randomly assigned to three treatment groups: standard inpatient care and brief hospitalization with and without transitional day care. Case reports of 6 of the 9 patients considered "study failures" illustrate that effective postdischarge adaptation is limited by the patients'(More)
BACKGROUND Food allergy in early childhood usually resolves with time; however, little is known about predictors for persistence or transience of food allergy in children with atopic dermatitis. The aim of the study was to evaluate whether specific IgE levels in serum could be a useful predictor of the outcome of oral re-challenges. METHODS In 74(More)
AIM OF STUDY Retrospective study of a series of 96 patients presenting with soft tissues sarcoma. Homogeneous treatment between 1980-1992 with conservative surgery and post operative irradiation. PATIENTS AND METHODS Median age of the 96 patients was 58 years. Tumor site was: upper limb 20, lower limb 46, trunk 30. In 35 cases largest diameter of the(More)
Because the small backs of young children offer little space for atopy patch testing, it would be helpful to use smaller chambers. We therefore compared 6-mm chambers with the 12-mm chambers used in previous studies. We performed 55 double-blind, placebo-controlled food challenges in 30 children (17 boys, 13 girls) aged 3 to 58 months (median, 13 months).(More)
BACKGROUND Atopic dermatitis is frequently associated with food allergy. In general, clinically manifested food allergy is regarded as IgE mediated. However, there are some children with food allergy for whom IgE hypersensitivity cannot be proven. OBJECTIVE The aim was to evaluate the percentage of children with positive double-blind, placebo-controlled(More)
BACKGROUND While immediate-type clinical reactions to food can quite easily be identified by history or measurement of specific IgE in combination with positive oral food challenges, the evaluation of food allergy in the absence of immediate clinical reactions still presents diagnostic difficulties--particularly in children with atopic dermatitis.
