INTRODUCTION: Allergic disorders are common diseases marked by the abnormal immune response toward foreign antigens that are not pathogens. Often patients with food allergy also suffer from asthma and eczema. Given the similarities of these diseases and a shortage of effective treatments, developing novel therapeutics against common targets of multiple allergies would offer an efficient and cost-effective treatment for patients. METHODS: We employed the artificial intelligence-driven target discovery platform, PandaOmics, to identify common targets for treating asthma, eczema, and food allergy...

INTRODUCTION: The cells of the immune system are thought to contribute to the development of skin cancers, such as basal cell carcinoma (BCC). One possible mechanism may be the interaction between mast cells and regulatory T cells (Tregs), resulting in immunosuppression. METHODS: Fresh-frozen biopsies from the lesional and nonlesional skin of 16 patients with BCC were processed for the enzymehistochemical staining of mast cell tryptase, immunohistochemical staining of FoxP3 (a marker of Tregs) as well as for the double-staining method to label tryptase+ cells and FoxP3+ cells on the same cryosection...

INTRODUCTION: Atopic dermatitis (AD) is a chronic inflammatory skin disease characterized by relapsed eczema and serious pruritus. High-mobility group box 1 protein (HMGB1) is a nuclear-binding protein and serves as an alarmin to promote inflammatory responses. METHODS: In this study, we established an AD mouse model by topical use of MC903 on ears and then used a specific HMGB1-binding peptide cIY8 and a HMGB1 inhibitor of glycyrrhizin to investigate HMGB1 on fibroblast activation in the pathogenesis of AD-like symptoms...

INTRODUCTION: Chronic spontaneous urticaria (CSU) with autoreactivity is often resistant to antihistamines. Autologous whole blood injection (AWBI) has shown potential efficacy in the treatment of this disease, but it is controversial. It is necessary to screen patients who are suitable for this therapy in advance. This study aimed to identify biomarkers that predict the efficacy of AWBI treatment in CSU patients with autoreactivity. METHODS: A total of 30 patients with autologous serum skin test-positive CSU treated with AWBI were included in this study; urticaria activity score (UAS7) was recorded and the treatment response was judged based on it...
