BACKGROUND: Anti-interleukin-5 (IL-5) monoclonal antibodies can be used as add-on biological therapies in allergic and non allergic patients with severe eosinophilic asthma. However, within such a therapeutic context real-life investigations are lacking. OBJECTIVE: Therefore, the aim of the present observational study was to evaluate the effects of mepolizumab in allergic and non allergic subjects with severe eosinophilic asthma. METHODS: Relevant clinical, functional, laboratory, and pharmacoth...

INTRODUCTION: Allergen-specific immunotherapy (AIT) represents a curative approach for treating allergies. In the tropical and subtropical regions of the world, Blomia tropicalis (Blo t 5 and Blo t 21) is the likely dominant source of indoor allergens. AIM: To generate a hypoallergenic Blo t 5/Blo t 21 hybrid molecule that can treat allergies caused by B. tropicalis. METHODS: Using in silico design of B. tropicalis hybrid proteins, we chose two hybrid proteins for heterologous expression. Wild-t...

BACKGROUND: Brassica rapeseed crops contain high concentrations of oil in the seed. The remaining meal, following oil extraction, has a high protein-content, but is of low value due to the presence of high amounts of napin seed storage proteins. These 2S albumin-like proteins are difficult to digest and have been identified as major allergens in humans. OBJECTIVE: To comprehensively characterise the napin gene (NG) family in Brassica rapa and to gain an understanding of the structural basis of a...

BACKGROUND: Mast cells (MCs) are innate immune cells that regulate atopic and non-atopic inflammation in the airways. MCs play a critical role in the pathogenesis of asthma, yet their relationship to airway and systemic inflammation and clinical characteristics of asthma is poorly understood. OBJECTIVE: To quantify MCs in induced sputum samples and understand their relationship to airway and circulatory immune cells, and clinical variables in asthma. METHODS: We employed flow cytometry of sputum...

BACKGROUND: Treatment of drinking water may decrease microbial exposure. OBJECTIVE: To investigate whether bacterial load in drinking water is associated with altered risk of allergic diseases. METHODS: We recruited 1,110 schoolchildren aged 6-16 years between 2011 and 2013 in Pozega-Slavonia County in Croatia, where we capitalized on a natural experiment whereby individuals receive drinking water through public mains supply or individual wells. We obtained data on microbial content of drinking ...

BACKGROUND: Allergen extracts are the primary tool for diagnosis and treatment of allergic diseases. In the United States, most allergen extracts are non-standardized. More sophisticated analytical approaches are needed to characterize these products and enable manufacturers and regulators to better determine potency. OBJECTIVE: To expand the multiple reaction monitoring (MRM) assay for an in-depth characterization of German cockroach (GCr; Blattella germanica) allergen extracts. METHODS: We app...

BACKGROUND: Cleaning is associated with an increased risk of asthma symptoms, but few studies have measured functional characteristics of airway disease in cleaners. AIMS: To assess and characterise respiratory symptoms and lung function in professional cleaners, and determine potential risk factors for adverse respiratory outcomes. METHODS: Symptoms, pre/post-bronchodilator lung function, atopy, and cleaning exposures were assessed in 425 cleaners and 281 reference workers in Wellington, New Ze...
