Food allergy is now looming as a major health issue with significant implications. In westernized countries, recent reports show a rise in allergic diseases, in particular food allergy. It affects approximately 5-8% of children and 1-5% of adults. Despite this, our current understanding of the immunological and biological mechanisms of food allergy is still incomplete. It is generally believed that food allergy is determined by both genetic and environmental factors. There is some evidence that… 

Oral allergy syndrome (pollen-food allergy syndrome).

The clinical features and pathophysiology of OAS are summarized, an overview of known pollen-food associations is provided, and a review of existing treatments for OAS is provided.

Animal Models of Allergic Diseases

The purpose of the current article is to review allergic diseases across species and to focus on how these diseases compare to the counterpart in people.

Can Early Introduction of Egg Prevent Egg Allergy in Infants? A Population-Based Study

If the development of egg allergy by 12 months of age is associated with the age at which egg and solids are introduced and the duration of breastfeeding is determined, a single-center, population-based, cross-sectional study of food allergy is conducted.

Induction of tolerance to foods to which a child is allergic may be achieved by low-dose exposure in a process known as specific oral tolerance induction (SOTI), and early results indicate that some probiotic strains of bacteria, such as Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG or LactOBacillus F19, may reduce allergic sensitization.

Strategies to Prevent or Reduce Allergic Disease

It is hoped that a number of ongoing studies will help provide clearer recommendations around the use of probiotics, prebiotics, specific dietary nutrients and the role of early introduction of allergenic foods for the promotion of tolerance.
