Allergic rhinitis (AR) is a high-prevalence disease in many developed countries, affecting about 10±20% of the general population (1±5). Several studies based on questionnaire and objective testing or medical examination indicate an increasing prevalence of AR in European countries over the last decades (6, 7). AR is characterized by nasal itching, sneezing, watery rhinorrhoea, and nasal obstruction. Additional symptoms such as headache, impaired smell, and conjunctival symptoms can be… Expand
Selecting the Optimal Oral Antihistamine for Patients with Allergic Rhinitis
TLDR
Oral histamine H1-receptor antagonists (H1 antihistamines) are one of the most commonly prescribed medications for the treatment of AR and it is important to know the pharmacology, such as administration interval, onset of action, metabolism and conditions that require administration adjustments. Expand
Local Allergic Rhinitis to Pollens is Underdiagnosed in Young Patients
TLDR
The prevalence of LAR in young patients with a previous diagnosis of nonallergic rhinitis or suspicion of allergy was determined and its significance is still unappreciated. Expand
Management of Rhinitis: Allergic and Non-Allergic
TLDR
Treatment of allergic rhinitis includes allergen avoidance, antihistamines (oral and intranasal), intranAsal corticosteroids, intran asal cromones, leukotriene receptor antagonists, and immunotherapy. Expand
Montelukast in the management of allergic rhinitis
TLDR
A review of the literature undoubtedly establishes montelukast as a viable alternative for the treatment of seasonal allergic rhinitis, and its benefits are equivalent to antihistamines, when used as monotherapy, but less than intranasal corticosteroids. Expand
Consensus statement on the treatment of allergic rhinitis (European Academy of Allergology and Clinical Immunology)
TLDR
The pathogenesis and mechanisms that lead to allergic nasal disease and, thus, to the symptomatology of allergic rhinitis provides a framework for a rational therapy in this disorder. Expand
ALLERGY | Allergic Rhinitis
TLDR
The Allergic Rhinitis and its Impact on Asthma (ARIA) Working Group proposed a new classification for allergic rhinitis, based on the duration of symptoms, rather than on the type of exposure, which was approved by the ARIA Working Group. Expand
ARIA (Allergic Rhinitis and Its Impact on Asthma) Classification of Allergic Rhinitis Severity in Clinical Practice in France
TLDR
The proposal of the ARIA expert panel defining the severity of allergic rhinitis based on quality of life parameters is likely to simplify daily physician practice. Expand
ARIA in the pharmacy: management of allergic rhinitis symptoms in the pharmacy
TLDR
Advances in understanding of the mechanisms underlying inflammation of the upper and lower airways have led to improved therapeutic strategies for managing allergic rhinitis, and practice guidelines incorporating these advances have been developed. Expand
Allergic rhinitis in children : diagnosis and treatment
TLDR
The effective treatment of allergic rhinitis in children will reduce symptoms and will improve overall health and quality of life, making a happier, healthier child. Expand
Different phenotypes of intermittent and persistent respiratory allergy in Zagreb, Croatia.
TLDR
Allergic rhinitis symptoms in subjects with IAR were significantly different than in those with PAR, and the prevalence of coexisting asthma was significantly higher in the PAR group, while the covariation of sensitization was similar. Expand

  • Medicine
  • Clinical and experimental allergy : journal of the British Society for Allergy and Clinical Immunology

TLDR
The role of histamine is examined during the early and late response to antigen, the oldest autacoid recognized to participate in allergic reactions and the only one to which potent and specific antagonists are clinically in use. Expand

TLDR
Three techniques for the treatment of allergic rhinitis are used, including avoidance of offending allergens, selection of appropriate pharmaceuticals, and allergy immunotherapy, which may spare some patients of related airway diseases and may also reduce the overall cost of care. Expand
Allergen-induced changes in the nasal mucous membrane in seasonal allergic rhinitis: effect of nedocromil sodium.
TLDR
Natural exposure to allergen in patients with seasonal allergic rhinitis is accompanied by infiltration of mast cells and eosinophils into the nasal mucous membrane, and the clinical efficacy of nedocromil sodium in this condition may be related to inhibition of infiltration by mast cells. Expand
Epidemiology of seasonal and perennial rhinitis: clinical presentation and medical history.
TLDR
Seasonal and perennial rhinitis differ in their atopic state, clinical presentation, and medical history, and the extent to which these differences are genetically or environmentally determined requires further investigation. Expand
Prevalence of allergic diseases in schoolchildren in relation to family history, upper respiratory infections, and residential characteristics
TLDR
The interaction between genetic and environmental risk factors with special emphasis on factors related to an unventilated indoor climate, which may have substantially contributed to the current increase of the diseases in Sweden, is illustrated. Expand
The activity of recent anti-allergic drugs in the treatment of seasonal allergic rhinitis.
TLDR
Results showed that both antihistamines, applied topically of dosed orally, reduced sneezing even when significant increases of histamine concentration in nasal secretions were evidenced immediately after NAC. Expand
Seasonal allergic rhinitis and depot injection of a corticosteroid
TLDR
It is concluded that systemic corticosteroids may be indicated in severe hay fever, when symptoms, especially blockage, occur in spite of other types of therapy. Expand

Minimal persistent inflammation is present at mucosal level in patients with asymptomatic rhinitis and mite allergy.
TLDR
A minimal persistent inflammation at conjunctival and nasal levels constantly detectable in patients without symptoms who are sensitized to mites and continuously exposed to the natural allergens is demonstrated. Expand
Effects of topical budesonide and levocabastine on nasal symptoms and plasma exudation responses in seasonal allergic rhinitis
TLDR
It is suggested that budesonide reduces both seasonal and allergen‐challenge‐induced nasal symptoms, while levocabastine is effective against allergenic‐challenges‐induced symptoms also during the season. Expand
