Dec 3rd, 2014 - Peanut and tree nut allergies are the commonest cause of life-threatening food-allergic reactions and significantly affect quality of life in children and their families. Dietary nut avoidance and provision of emergency medication is currently the mainstay of treatment. Nut avoidance has consequences on both quality of life and nutrition. We review the terminology that may cause confusion and l...

The Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology; Maloney JM, Rudengren M et. al.

May 27th, 2008 - The gold standard for diagnosing food allergy is the double-blind, placebo-controlled food challenge. Diagnostic food-specific IgE levels might assist in diagnosing food allergies and circumventing the need for food challenges. The purpose of this study was to determine the utility of food-specific IgE measurements for identifying symptomatic peanut, tree nut,...

Oct 16th, 2013 - The prevalence of peanut (PN) and tree nut (TN) allergy in children has tripled in the past decade. Prenatal exposures, including maternal diet and medications, may account for some of this increase. In the United States, progesterone for luteal support in assisted reproduction is commonly formulated in PN or sesame seed (SS) oil. To determine whether p...

The Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology; Brough HA, Caubet JC et. al.

Dec 24th, 2019 - Peanut, tree nut, and sesame allergies are responsible for most life-threatening food-induced allergic reactions. Rates of coexistent allergy between these foods have been from mostly retrospective studies that include only a limited number of tree nuts or were not based on oral food challenges. The Pronuts study is a multicenter European ...

One Nut Allergy Doesn't Rule All Nuts Out

Jun 23rd, 2017 - HELSINKI — For most children with a tree nut allergy, other nuts and seeds can be introduced into the diet, with challenges and supervision, particularly when they are younger, results from the prospective ProNut study (NCT01744990) shows. Patients with nut allergies have previously been advised to avoid all nuts, but results from this study sugg...

Basophil Activation Test Can Limit Need for Oral Food Challenges in Nut, Seed Allergies
https://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/944193

Jan 19th, 2021 - NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - In children with one or more nut allergies who have undergone skin prick and specific IgE testing, the basophil activation test (BAT) can reduce the number of oral food challenges needed to clarify which other nuts, if any, the child is allergic to, researchers report. The potential benefit of fewer oral food challenges (OFCs) is substantial, Dr. Alexan...

Feb 23rd, 2020 - Background Tree nut-allergic individuals are often sensitised towards multiple nuts and seeds. The underlying cause behind a multi-sensitisation for cashew nut, hazelnut, peanut and birch pollen is not always clear. We investigated whether immunoglobulin E antibody (IgE) cross-reactivity between cashew nut, hazelnut and peanut prote...

Jan 30th, 2018 - Nut allergy varies from pollen cross-allergy, to primary severe allergy with life-threatening symptoms. The screening of IgE antibodies to a wide spectrum of allergens, including species-specific and cross-reactive allergens, is made possible via microarray analysis. We sought to study the association of variable IgE sensitization profiles to clinical response in ...
