Carrot is a frequent cause of food allergy in Europe. The objective of this study was to evaluate a panel of carrot allergens for diagnosis of carrot allergy in Spain, Switzerland and Denmark.

Birch pollen‐related soya allergy is mediated by Gly m 4. Conformational IgE epitopes of Gly m 4 are unknown.
Quality and potency profile of eight recombinant isoallergens, largely mimicking total Bet v 1‐specific IgE binding of birch pollen
To date, only limited information on structure, expression levels and IgE binding of Bet v 1 variants, which are simultaneously expressed in birch pollen, is available.
Characterization of the T‐cell response to Dau c 1, the Bet v 1‐homolog in carrot
TLDR
This work sought to characterize the T‐cell response to Dau c 1 and its cross‐reactivity with Bet v 1, and found that T cells are crucial in the sensitization process.
Molecular Diagnostics of Allergy to Fruits and Vegetables
TLDR
Research demonstrates that component-resolved diagnostics can make an important contribution to improving in vitro diagnostics in food allergy, and identifies marker allergens associated with an increased risk of developing severe systemic reactions will aid in the future management of food-allergic patients.
Update: molecular diagnostics of allergies to vegetables and fruits
TLDR
The current review on molecular diagnostics of fruit and vegetable allergies summarizes data on allergen component-based diagnosis gained primarily from patients with challenge-confirmed food allergies and focuses on the most frequent fruit and vegetables allergies, such as to carrot, celeriac, tomato, kiwifruit and peach, as the most important representative of the Rosaceae fruits.
Food allergy to apple, peach and celery in atopic dermatitis patients, analysis of sensitisation to molecular components
TLDR
Evaluated the occurrence of food allergy to peach/apple/celery in atopic dermatitis patients and to analyse the sensitisation to molecular components and confirmed in 42.2% food allergy and in 48.4% food sensitivity to apple/peach/celerY.
State of the art and perspectives in food allergy (part I): diagnosis.
TLDR
Novel in vitro diagnostics in the form of allergen component-based sIgE assays and flow-assisted quantification of in vitro activated basophils make it possible to establish individual risk profiles, to predict persistence of allergy, and facilitate therapeutic approach.
Allergen Recognition Patterns in Walnut Allergy Are Age Dependent and Correlate with the Severity of Allergic Reactions.
TLDR
Investigation of potential correlations between molecular sensitization patterns and clinical characteristics of walnut-allergic patients found Sensitization to walnut storage proteins is acquired in childhood and correlates with severe reactions.
Molecular Diagnosis in Contact Urticaria Caused by Proteins
TLDR
This chapter is described how molecular diagnosis may increase diagnostic accuracy in patients with contact urticaria induced by proteins of the vegetal and animal kingdoms, how to recognize allergens associated with genuine sensitization from allergens with cross-reactivity, and how some allergens are associated with clinical reactions.
Labile plant food allergens: Really so harmless? Case series and literature review
TLDR
Some cases of severe systemic reactions following the ingestion of fruits and/or vegetables occurring in PR-10 and profilin-hypersensitive patients are reported which are possibly useful to identify the co-factors that could pose a risk of life-threatening reactions.

Component‐resolved in vitro diagnosis in carrot allergy: Does the use of recombinant carrot allergens improve the reliability of the diagnostic procedure?
TLDR
A large number of patients in Europe with a history of pollen‐related food allergy are diagnosed with at least some form of food allergy, and therapeutic options are not available.
A critical assessment of allergen component‐based in vitro diagnosis in cherry allergy across Europe

TLDR
This work has demonstrated insufficient sensitivity of commercially available cherry extract reagents in the diagnosis of cherry allergy, and aims to address this issue by demonstrating its use in clinical practice.
Influence of food processing on the allergenicity of celery: DBPCFC with celery spice and cooked celery in patients with celery allergy
TLDR
A small number of patients with celery‐allergic patients have shown an intolerance to processed celery, and the results suggest that these patients should be referred to a gluten-free clinic for further studies.
Enhancement of hazelnut extract for IgE testing by recombinant allergen spiking
TLDR
This work has shown that hazelnut allergic individuals in central and northern Europe are sensitized to Cor a 1, a member of the PR‐10 protein family, while the lipid transfer protein Cor a 8 acts as a major allergen in the south of Europe.
Component-resolved in vitro diagnosis of hazelnut allergy in Europe.
TLDR
Component-resolved in vitro analyses revealed substantial differences in IgE profiles of hazelnut allergic and hazelnuts tolerant patients across Europe.
Soybean allergy in patients allergic to birch pollen: clinical investigation and molecular characterization of allergens.
TLDR
Gly m 4 is the major soy allergen for patients allergic to birch pollen with soy allergy and the results confirm that soybean is anotherBirch pollen-related allergenic food.
Allergens in celery and zucchini
TLDR
It is concluded that ubiquitous cross‐reactive structures are important in allergies to both, celery and zucchini, and that a specific association to birch pollen allergy exists in allergy to celery (mediated by Api g 1), but not in zuc squash allergy.
Carrot allergy: double-blinded, placebo-controlled food challenge and identification of allergens.
TLDR
The lack of inhibition of IgE binding to Dau c 1 by birch allergens in a subgroup of patients might indicate an secondary immune response to new epitopes on the food allergen that are not cross-reactive with Bet v 1.
Novel IgE recognized components of Lolium perenne pollen extract: comparative proteomics evaluation of allergic patients sensitization profiles.
TLDR
Cluster analysis revealed that all these patients recognized profilin, considered the main cross-reactive allergen in grass pollen, and Comparative analysis of immunoblot highlighted a class of patients characterized by a more complex 2-DE pattern associated with increased levels of IgE antibodies and by higher susceptibility to multiple sensitization toward different allergenic sources.
Prevalence and distribution of sensitization to foods in the European Community Respiratory Health Survey: a EuroPrevall analysis
TLDR
This work has shown clear trends in prevalence and distribution of sensitization to foods in the European Community Respiratory Health Survey and in the EuroPrevall analysis, which bodes well for the prognosis for asthma sufferers.
