Background Betalactam (BL) antibiotics are the most common cause of drug hypersensitivity. Amoxicillin (AX), which is often prescribed alongside clavulanic acid (Clav), is the most common elicitor. The aim of this study was to determine whether AX and Clav‐responsive T‐cells are detectable in patients with immediate hypersensitivity to AX‐Clav, to assess whether these T‐cells display the same...

IgE mediated food allergy remains a significant and growing problem across the globe. Of the various treatment modalities, oral immunotherapy (OIT) and epicutaneous immunotherapy (EPIT) have been the best studied. Across various studies of OIT for egg, milk and peanut allergy, strong levels of desensitization have been shown. With egg and peanut OIT, a limited remission, or sustained...

Since the introduction of allergen immunotherapy (AIT) over 100 years ago, focus has been on standardization of allergen extracts, with reliable molecular composition of allergens receiving the highest attention. While adjuvants play a major role in European AIT, they have been less well studied. In this Position Paper we summarize current unmet needs of adjuvants in AIT citing current evidence....

The achievement of long lasting, safe treatments for food allergy is dependent on the understanding of the immunological basis of food allergy. Accurate diagnosis is essential for management. In recent years, data from oral food challenges have revealed that routine allergy testing is poor at predicting clinical allergy for tree nuts, almonds in particular. More advanced antigen‐based tests...

Introduction Hypersensitivity to non‐steroidal anti‐inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are of great concern because they are frequently encountered in daily clinical practice. Drug provocation tests (DPT) are particularly needed for NSAIDs. Methods The aim of this retrospective study was to detect eliciting dose thresholds during NSAIDs DPT in order to suggest optimal step doses, using the survival...
