Canine atopic dermatitis (CAD) is a multifaceted disease associated with exposure to various offending agents such as environmental and food allergens. [...] Key Method Using simulated annealing, selected criteria were tested on a large and geographically widespread population of pruritic dogs. The study first described the signalment, history and clinical features of a large population of CAD dogs, compared FIAD and NFIAD dogs and confirmed that both conditions are clinically indistinguishable. Correlations of…Expand
Review: Clinical and histological manifestations of canine atopic dermatitis.
TLDR
This review serves as an update on the clinical and histological features of canine AD published by the American College of Veterinary Dermatology Task Force on Canine Atopic Dermatitis in 2001 and summarizes the recent discoveries in these fields. Expand
Canine atopic dermatitis: detailed guidelines for diagnosis and allergen identification
TLDR
The diagnosis of canine AD is based on meeting clinical criteria and ruling out other possible causes with similar clinical signs, and allergy testing can be performed to identify potential causative allergens for allergen-specific immunotherapy. Expand
Examination of the most common allergens of canine atopic dermatitis - a retrospective study.
TLDR
The aim of the study is to determine the most common allergens that can cause canine atopic dermatitis, and intradermal testing has been done with a standard set of 24 allergens specific to the geographical area of the research. Expand
Proteinuria in Dogs with Atopic Dermatitis: A Retrospective Analysis
TLDR
It is important to evaluate proteinuria in patients with AD, as it is largely unknownWhether it is associated primarily with this inflammatory skin condition or whether it is an indication of renal disease or another underlying condition, which would necessitate further work-up by the veterinarian. Expand
Reliability of different sets of criteria in diagnosing canine atopic dermatitis applied to a population of 250 dogs seen in a veterinary teaching hospital
TLDR
This study showed that each set of criteria had a low diagnostic reliability when used alone, and the use of more discriminant criteria integrated into a thorough clinical approach excluding MDs should be considered. Expand
Clinical comparison of human and canine atopic dermatitis using human diagnostic criteria (Japanese Dermatological Association, 2009): Proposal of provisional diagnostic criteria for canine atopic dermatitis
TLDR
Canine AD is indicated as a valuable counterpart to human AD in clinical aspects and the human AD criteria could be applicable, with some modification, as provisional diagnostic criteria for canine AD. Expand
Canine atopic dermatitis in the Middle East: clinical signs, signalment and common allergens
TLDR
It is shown that early onset of clinical signs, especially in breeds predisposed to CAD and with a dorsal distribution of skin lesions, should not rule out the diagnosis of CAD. Expand
Determination of allergens involved in canine atopic dermatitis in Bosnia and Herzegovina
TLDR
The purpose of this study was to identify the most frequent allergen associated with CAD to which dogs with atopic dermatitis (AD) most often react with hypersensitive reaction. Expand
Establishment of diagnostic criteria for feline nonflea-induced hypersensitivity dermatitis.
TLDR
Criteria sets were associated with good sensitivity and specificity and may be useful for homogeneity of enrolment in clinical trials and to evaluate the probability of diagnosis of NFHD in clinical practice, but were not useful to differentiate cats with NFHD from those with food HD. Expand
Characterization of pruritus in canine atopic dermatitis, flea bite hypersensitivity and flea infestation and its role in diagnosis.
TLDR
Some features of pruritus could be suggestive of the causal disease, with possible diagnostic value in pruritic dogs, and their potential usefulness for diagnosis is evaluated. Expand

The ACVD task force on canine atopic dermatitis (XV): fundamental concepts in clinical diagnosis.
TLDR
It is important to understand that allergy testing, in whatever form, is not appropriately used early in the patient evaluation as a screening test, and should be reserved, after a firm clinical diagnosis of AD has been made, to implement allergen avoidance schemes or to select allergens to be incorporated in immunotherapy formulations. Expand
The ACVD task force on canine atopic dermatitis (XIV): clinical manifestations of canine atopic dermatitis.
TLDR
Clinical reports vary, in regard to the description of lesions seen in dogs with AD, which reflects a possible confusion with lesions of secondary complications, and highlights the fact that the existence and nature of primary lesions of canine AD are not truly known. Expand
Prediction of future development of canine atopic dermatitis based on examination of clinical history.
TLDR
It is suggested that the clinical history of all dogs from the Guide Dogs for the Blind Association about to undergo training should be examined for these factors to assess whether or not they should undergo training. Expand
Prevalence and features of canine atopic dermatitis in Hungary.
TLDR
The breed distribution found in the present study was consistent with that reported in the literature, except for the breeds Hungarian Vizsla, Pumi, French bulldog, Doberman Pinscher and Bobtail which were over-represented among atopic dogs compared to the breed distribution of the general dog population of a large city in Hungary. Expand
A prospective study on canine atopic dermatitis and food-induced allergic dermatitis in Switzerland.
TLDR
The study describes a group of 259 allergic dogs, determines breed predisposition for atopic dermatitis and food-induced allergic dermatitis, compares the clinical signs and features of both conditions, and outlines the clinical picture of five frequently affected breeds. Expand
Canine atopic dermatitis: a retrospective study of 266 cases examined at the University of California, Davis, 1992-1998. Part I. Clinical features and allergy testing results.
TLDR
Positive reactions to flea antigen were highly correlated with the clinical diagnosis of flea allergy dermatitis and dogs with positive reactions to cultivated plants were more likely to have otitis externa and pedal lesions. Expand
Validation of the U.K. diagnostic criteria for atopic dermatitis in a population setting
TLDR
The newly proposed diagnostic criteria for AD appear to work well as a 1‐year period prevalence measure in London schoolchildren, and further validation in adults and other countries are needed. Expand
The ACVD task force on canine atopic dermatitis (XII): the relationship of cutaneous infections to the pathogenesis and clinical course of canine atopic dermatitis.
TLDR
Clinical and experimental evidence exists that secondary microbial infections can both initiate and perpetuate episodes of AD in dogs and humans, and could even participate in promotion of pro-allergic immunologic responses. Expand
The ACVD task force on canine atopic dermatitis (X): is there a relationship between canine atopic dermatitis and cutaneous adverse food reactions?
TLDR
Confirmation of any association between these two diseases in dogs awaits further elucidation of the pathogenic mechanism of cutaneous adverse food reactions, and epidemiological studies of the relative prevalence of these diseases in relation to each other and the general population. Expand

TLDR
A careful approach, monitored by active clinical audit, will help to establish the true incidence of food sensitivity in dogs presented to a UK-based dermatology referral clinic. Expand
