Food allergy is a growing global public health concern. As treatment strategies are currently limited to allergen avoidance and emergency interventions, there is an increasing demand for appropriate models of food allergy for the development of new therapeutics. Many models of food allergy rely heavily on the use of animals, and while useful, many are unable to accurately reflect the human system. In order to bridge the gap between in vivo animal models and clinical trials with human patients, human models of food allergy are of great importance...

We previously described a rare case of anaphylaxis presumably induced by carminic acid in cochineal dye used as a food additive. In this study, highly pure carminic acid was added to an albumin-containing buffer at various concentrations, followed by serial dilution. Varying the mixing ratio of carminic acid and albumin affected the extent of histamine release from passively sensitized basophils. Similar basophil histamine release occurred with carminic acid-globulin solutions. These results provide experimental evidence indicating that basophil activation is dependent on hapten (carminic acid) and carrier (protein) interaction...

REVIEW
Bernard Yu-Hor Thong
Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) hypersensitivity reactions (HSRs) are often nonimmunologically mediated reactions which present with immediate HSR type manifestations. These are mediated by cyclooxygenase inhibition resulting in shunting towards the excessive production of leukotrienes. Important disease associations include asthma, nasal polyposis, and chronic spontaneous urticaria, especially among adults. The European Network on Drug Allergy/Global Allergy and Asthma European Network 2013 classification of NSAID HSR comprises nonselective HSR i...

Tipepidine hibenzate (Asverin) is commonly used as an antitussive drug for acute and chronic cough in various age groups and is generally safe and well-tolerated. However, we experienced a case of tipepidine hibenzate-induced anaphylactic shock in a 1-year-old boy. After ingesting cold medication including tipepidine hibenzate, the patient presented with generalized erythema and urticaria, swollen face, coughing, wheezing and vomiting, together with hypotension and a decreased level of consciousness. To identify the culprit drug, we performed skin prick tests (SPTs) and oral drug provocation tests (DPTs)...
