Seafood allergies have been increasing their presence in the last 2 decades. Allergic reactions to seafood can range from mild urticarial and oral allergy syndrome to life-threatening anaphylactic reactions. Ingestion of seafood infested with Anisakis larvae can cause a disease known as anisakiasis with symptoms similar to true seafood allergy. Furthermore, some adverse reactions to seafood including histamine fish poisoning (HFP), and intolerance to histamine can trigger clinical symptoms… Expand
Seafood-Associated Shellfish Allergy: A Comprehensive Review
  • S. Khora
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Immunological investigations
  • 2016
TLDR
This comprehensive review provides the update and new findings in the area of shellfish allergy including demographic, diversity of allergens, allergenicity, their cross-reactivity, and innovative molecular genetics approaches in diagnosing and managing this life-threatening as well as life-long disease. Expand
Food Allergens: Seafood, Tree Nuts, Peanuts
TLDR
The prevalence, the symptoms, the eliciting dose, the characteristic allergenic proteins, the potential cross-reactivity of proteins and the potential treatment advances for three persistent food allergies: seafood, tree nuts and peanut are discussed. Expand
Possible Allergenic Role of Tropomyosin in Patients with Adverse Reactions after Fish Intake
TLDR
Tropomyosin is a good candidate to be investigated as a clinically relevant fish allergen in patients who report adverse reactions after fish intake, and immunoblotting with a battery of antigens from different fish species has a high yield of positivity at a band matching with tropomyos in molecular weight. Expand
Eating jellyfish: safety, chemical and sensory properties.
TLDR
The present study confirmed that jellyfish intake is safe, even for allergic individuals, and its organoleptic properties were accepted by the study population. Expand
Natural shrimp (Litopenaeus vannamei) tropomyosin shows higher allergic properties than that of recombinant one as compared through SWATH-MS based proteomics and immunological response.

TLDR
Findings would supply foundation data for epitope-based immunotherapy to shrimp allergic individuals and show that pepsin-digested and trypsin-Digested samples of rTM exhibited lower IgG-/IgE binding and degranulation than those of nTM. Expand
Influence of nonthermal extraction technique and allergenicity characteristics of tropomyosin from fish (Larimichthys crocea) in comparison with shrimp (Litopenaeus vannamei) and clam (Ruditapes philippinarum).
TLDR
The study demonstrated that fish-TM, being with high sequence similarity, did not have cross-reactivity with shrimp and clam- TM, and could have a variable degree of IgE binding depending on subject sensitivity and allergenicity. Expand
Detection of Allergen Markers in Food: Analytical Methods
Food allergens are proteins that are well tolerated by most, but can cause severe reactions in sensitive individuals. Since there is no cure for food allergy, strict adherence to an allergen-freeExpand
Allergenicity of tropomyosin of shrimp (Litopenaeus vannamei) and clam (Ruditapes philippinarum) is higher than that of fish (Larimichthys crocea) via in vitro and in vivo assessment
TLDR
Results indicated that shrimp-TM owned stronger stimulation ability based on allergic mouse compared with fish-TM and clam-TM, which could supply information for clinical and anaphylaxis of TM in the stages of sensitization and simulation deserve further consideration. Expand
Analysis of the allergenicity and B cell epitopes in tropomyosin of shrimp (Litopenaeus vannamei) and correlation to cross-reactivity based on epitopes with fish (Larimichthys crocea) and clam (Ruditapes philippinarum).
TLDR
A new understanding of the cross-reactivity of TM from fish, shrimp and clam in terms of allergenic epitopes is applied. Expand
Relationships between food and diseases: What to know to ensure food safety.
TLDR
It is highlighted that to protect consumers from food-borne diseases, an integrated approach to food safety must be adopted which affects the entire food chain, from farm to fork. Expand

TLDR
Fish-allergic children with allergy to tuna and/or salmon, at least 21% were able to tolerate the fish in a tinned form, and over 50% of crustacean- allergic children could tolerate non-crustacean fish. Expand

This contemporary review discusses interesting and new findings in the area of fish allergy including demographics, novel allergens identified, immunological mechanisms of sensitization, and innovative approaches in diagnosing and managing this life-long disease. Expand
New insights into seafood allergy
TLDR
Molecular characterization of more universal marker allergens for the three major seafood groups will improve current component-resolved clinical diagnosis and have a significant impact on the management of allergic patients, on food labeling and on future immunotherapy for seafood allergy. Expand
Allergy and asthma to indigenous seafood species in South Africa : review article
TLDR
Over the past decade, a number of studies of allergic disease outcomes associated with indigenous seafood species have been conducted among consumers and processors in South Africa, focusing on identifying and characterising the implicated allergens using a combination of epidemiological, immunological and molecular approaches. Expand
Monosensitivity to pangasius and tilapia caused by allergens other than parvalbumin.
TLDR
The temporal relationship between fish consumption and allergic symptoms, the positive skin prick tests, and the basophil activation test results for both fish species strongly supported the diagnosis of an immunoglobulin (Ig) E-mediated allergy and the patient was not sensitized to parvalbumin.

TLDR
All patients with symptoms of IgE‐mediated reactions to shellfish should receive epinephrine autoinjectors, even if the initial symptoms are mild. Expand
Fish allergy in childhood
TLDR
Fish and its derived products play an important role in human nutrition, but they may also be a potent food allergen and those from the Tunidae and Xiphiidae families appear to be the least allergenic. Expand
Seafood Allergy In South Africa - Studies in the Domestic and Occupational Setting
TLDR
Preliminary investigations into the spectrum of seafood allergy in South Africa indicate that the potential of local seafood species in causing sensitization, either through ingestion, skin contact or inhalation are important considerations when investigating seafood allergies in the domestic or occupational setting. Expand
Not all shellfish "allergy" is allergy!
TLDR
Management of shellfish allergy is basically strict elimination, which in highly allergic subjects may include avoidance of touching or smelling and the availability of self-administered epinephrine, and requires the development of safe and effective protocols. Expand
