Evaluation of TLR4 expression and chosen parameters of oxidative-antioxidative balance in young children with food allergy.
Barbara Kamer,Karolina Kulig,Przemys?aw Lewkowicz,Anna Kamer-Bartosińska
Folia Histochemica et Cytobiologica , 2010, DOI: 10.5603/4199
Abstract: The authors evaluated mRNA TLR4 expression on neutrophils and the chosen parameters of oxidative-antioxidative balance in blood of 35 children with food allergy (17 of them with IgE-dependent allergy and 18 with IgE-independent allergy) and 15 healthy children without any allergy. The age of these children ranged from 1 to 36 months. Children with food allergy in comparison with healthy children were found to have lower mRNA TLR4 expression, higher average value of chemiluminescence (CL) and its increase after stimulation by fMLP, PMA and OZ as well as lower TAS values. Disturbances of oxidative-antioxidative balance were found in children with food allergy. We suggest that natural immunity is involved in the development of food allergy mechanisms. Moreover, chemiluminescence can be used as an additional diagnostic test.

Intestinal colic in infants in the first three months of life – based on own observations

Polish Gastroenterology , 2010,
Abstract: Introduction: Intestinal colic occurs in about 10-40% of infants. It is a transient clinical problem and not connected with any somatic pathology. Aim of the study: Evaluation of the frequency, causes and course of intestinal colic. Material and methods: The retrospective analysis comprised 1464 infants in the first 3 months of life treated in the II Department of Pediatrics and Allergology Polish Mother’s Memorial Hospital – Research Institute in the years 2003-2009. In each child the cause and course of colic was analyzed basing on medical records. Results: It was shown that among the examined children in 181 infants (12.4%) infantile colic was diagnosed. It was observed that in 143 of these children symptoms of intestinal colic appeared in the first, in 32 in the second and in 6 in the third month of life. Basing on the history and clinical course among 181 infants with colic in 68.5% cases cow’s milk allergy, in 6.6% lactase deficiency and in 24.9% immaturity of digestive tract was diagnosed. Thirty six children (19.9%) with intestinal colic were born prematurely. The diagnosis of allergy was confirmed by a positive food challenge. On the basis of the presence of elevated levels of allergen-specific IgE antibodies in blood serum (2nd class and over) 67 infants with IgE-dependent and 57 with IgE-independent allergy was separated. Analysis of nutrition showed that 38 infants with food allergy and lactase deficiency were exclusively breast-fed, 59 mother’s milk and formula milk and 39 infants had been fed artificially since birth. Milk-free diet was introduced to all the children and a gradual improvement was obtained. Conclusions: Our study showed that intestinal colic occurs in 12.4% infants in the first 3 months of life. The most common cause of infant’s intestinal colic was cow’s milk allergy. Recession or abatement of symptoms of intestinal colic observed after elimination diet confirmed their casual relationship with cow’s milk allergy. (Gastroenterol.

Prevalence of sleep disorders in small children with food allergy based on own observation

Polish Gastroenterology , 2010,
Abstract: Introduction: Food allergy is an important clinical problem especially in the youngest children. Because of its complex etiopathogenesis, food allergy can be manifested by clinical symptoms from different systems, including central nervous system. The aim of the study was to analyze the prevalence of sleep disorders in small children with food allergy. Material and methods: The study was performed in 73 children with IgE-dependent food allergy, aged from 13 to 36 months. In the examined group there was majority of boys (63%). The diagnosis of allergy was based on clinical symptoms, positive result of elimination and provocation challenge with harmful food, increased serum concentrations of allergen-specific IgE antibodies (asIgE) (≥2nd class). Anamnesis concerning sleep disorders was performed individually with parent or/and carer in case of each child. A specially prepared questionnaire included questions in accordance with DC: 03-R classification. Continuity of sleep with multiple awakenings and difficulties in falling asleep were taken into consideration. Also coincidence with environmental factors as well as with neurological and psychological causes was analyzed. Results: Analysis of results showed that most of children had food allergy (76.7%), while 17 examined children had inhalant-food allergy (23.3%). Sleep disorders were observed in 49 of the examined children (67.1%). Among them 28 had difficulties in falling asleep (38.4%) and 42 examined children (57.5%) had discontinuous sleep. Disease of central nervous system and impact of environmental causes were excluded in each child. Conclusions: The performed study showed frequent sleep disorders in children with food allergy. The results of our study suggest that children with food allergy require early psychological and neurological evaluation. The obtained results indicate the need of anti-allergic treatment in the examined children. (Gastroenterol. Pol., 2010, Vol. 17, No. 5, p. 345-348)

Coexistence of digestive tract symptoms in children with atopic dermatitis — based on own observations
Barbara Kamer,Renata Pasowska,Helena Rotsztejn,El?bieta Dó?ka
Polish Gastroenterology , 2010,
Abstract: Introduction: Clinical manifestation of atopic dermatitis (AD) is complex and usually involves at least two systems. In infants skin lesions are often accompanied by symptoms of the digestive tract. Aim of the study: Estimate the frequency of coexistence and kind of digestive tract symptoms in children with atopic dermatitis. Material and methods: The retrospective analysis comprised 2256 children aged from 0 to 6 months of life treated in the II Department of Pediatrics and Allergology of Polish Mother's Memorial Hospital Research Institute in the years 2003-2009. Among them, 471 children had various types of skin lesions. Among these children we separated patients with atopic dermatitis who have an allergy as the cause confirmed by a positive food challenge and the results of allergic and immunological studies. Results: Atopic dermatitis was diagnosed in 391 children, which accounted for 17.3% of all the hospitalized patients. In 140 of them, symptoms of the digestive tract were found, including intestinal colic in 49.3%, obstipation in 6.4%, regurgitation and vomiting in 33.6% and chronic diarrhea in 10.7% of the examined children. Conclusions: The conducted examinations showed frequent coexistence of atopic skin lesions and symptoms of the digestive tract (1/3 of the analyzed children). 71.6% children had disseminated skin lesions which indicates the tendency for more frequent dissemination of skin lesions in the smallest children. Improvement after dietary therapy confirmed the cause-effect relationship between food allergy and atopic dermatitis.

Abstract: Introduction:The purpose of the work is to estimate the frequency of occurrence of various infections in infants and small children, aged between 0 and 36 months with atopic dermatitis in the practice of a family doctor.Material/Methods:The study has been conducted on the basis of the retrospective analysis of medical documentation of disease among children born in 2005–2008 treated in Outpatient Clinic of the Polish Mother’s Memorial Hospital in Lodz.Results:Children suffering from atopic dermatitis are more prone to develop infectious diseases.Conclusions:Infectious diseases in children with atopic dermatitis are of more chronic nature and more often require antibiotic therapy. Such children often manifest chronic diarrhea and their stool contains Staphylococcus aureus. They are more often hospitalized because of difficulty in setting a diagnosis and applying treatment in outpatient clinics.
