Syndrome oral croisé et allergies alimentaires [Oral allergy syndrome and food allergy]
Revue Médicale Suisse
English Abstract Journal Article Review
To obtain a precise diagnosis of food allergy, it is essential to take a careful and detailed clinical history. This allows for directing further investigations and the patient should receive adequate information. In a research setting, recombinant allergens obtained by biotechnologies permit to reach a precise identification of allergenic proteins, with the hope of treating patients exclusively with the proteins to which they are allergic. In case of light reactions, a strict allergen avoidance is not required, but it is preferable to avoid the consumption of potentially dangerous food in isolated sites and before or during physical effort. In case of severe anaphylactic reactions with potent allergens like hazelnuts, peanuts and sea food, strict information about allergen avoidance and prescription of an emergency kit will be given.
