Seizures that occur during a febrile episode. It is a common condition, affecting 2-5% of children aged 3 months to five years. An autosomal dominant pattern of inheritance has been identified in some families. The majority are simple febrile seizures (generally defined as generalized onset, single seizures with a duration of less than 30 minutes). Complex febrile seizures are characterized by focal onset, duration greater than 30 minutes, and/or more than one seizure in a 24 hour period. The likelihood of developing epilepsy (i.e., a nonfebrile seizure disorder) following simple febrile seizures is low. Complex febrile seizures are associated with a moderately increased incidence of epilepsy. (From Menkes, Textbook of Child Neurology, 5th ed, p784)

5'-Nucleotidase activity of mouse peritoneal macrophages. II. Cellular distribution and effects of endocytosis. (1/496)

The diazonium salt of sulfanilic acid (DASA) can inactivate about 80% of the total 5'-nucleotidase of viable macrophages. The remaining 20% can be inactivated if the cells are first lysed in detergent, and presumably represents an intracellular pool of 5'-nucleotidase. The bulk of this pool may represent cytoplasmic vesicles derived from plasma membrane by endocytosis. This internal compartment is expanded up to threefold immediately after the cells have ingested a large latex load. This is consistent with previous observations on the internalization of 5'-nucleotidase in latex phagosomes. In latex-filled cells this intracellular pool of enzyme is inactivated over a few hours, and the cells then slowly increase their enzyme activity to nearly normal levels. However, 24 h after latex ingestion the metabolism of 5'-nucleotidase in these recovered cells is abnormal, as the rate of enzyme degradation is about twice the normal rate, and the DASA-insensitive enzyme pool in these cells is strikingly diminished. This may reflect effects of the accumulated indigestible particles on the fate of incoming pinocytic vesicles or on newly synthesized plasma membrane precursor. Another endocytic stimulus, concanavalin A, also reduces the total cell 5'-nucleotidase activity. This effect, which is time and temperature dependent, can be prevented by the competitive sugar alpha-methyl mannose. The concanavalin A inhibition can be reversed in the absence of new protein synthesis or in cells cultivated in serum-free conditions. It is not known whether the effect of concanavalin A on 5'-nucleotidase depends upon the interiorizaiton of plasma membrane or is strictly associated with events at the cell surface.  (+info)

Three-independent-compartment chamber to study in vitro commissural synapses. (2/496)

We describe a novel chamber in which the two intact neonatal rat hippocampi and the commissural fibers are placed in three independent compartments separated by latex membranes and perfused selectively with different solutions. A set of control tests showed that the compartments are well isolated: 1) methylene blue or eosin applied to one compartment did not diffuse to other compartments when verified via the microscope, and spectrophotometry revealed that <1/10.000th of the dye diffuses to other compartments; 2) tetrodotoxin (1 microM) applied to the commissural compartment blocked the synaptic responses evoked contralaterally without affecting those evoked on the ipsilateral side. This chamber enables a wide range of experiments that cannot be performed in conventional chambers, e.g., to study the maturation and plasticity of the commissural connections, bilateral synchronization of the rhythmic activities in the limbic system, commissural propagation of the epileptiform activities, etc.  (+info)

A new sugar chain of the proteinase inhibitor from latex of Carica papaya. (3/496)

The structure of a sugar chain of the proteinase inhibitor from the latex of Carica papaya was studied. Sugar chains liberated on hydrazinolysis were N-acetylated, and their reducing-end residues were tagged with 2-aminopyridine. One major sugar chain was detected on size-fractionation and reversed-phase HPLC analyses. The structure of the PA-sugar chain was determined by two-dimensional sugar mapping combined with sequential exoglycosidase digestion and partial acid hydrolysis, and by 750 MHz 1H-NMR spectroscopy. The structure found was Manalpha1-6(Manalpha1-3)Manalpha1-6(Manalpha1-3) (Xylbeta1-2)Manbeta1- 4GlcNAcbeta1-4(Fucalpha1-3)GlcNAc. This sugar chain represents a new plant-type sugar chain with five mannose residues.  (+info)

2-Deoxyglucose selectively inhibits Fc and complement receptor-mediated phagocytosis in mouse peritoneal macrophages. I. Description of the inhibitory effect. (4/496)

Incubation of normal or thioglycollate-elicited mouse peritoneal macrophages with 2-deoxy-D-glucose (2-dG) inhibits the capacity of these macrophages to phagocytize IgG- or complement-coated particles via their Fc and C3 receptors. 2-dG has no inhibitory effect on the capacity of these macrophages to phagocytize latex or zymosan particles, which are ingested in the absence of specific opsonins, and it does not inhibit binding of IgG- or C3-coated particles to their respective receptors on the macrophage's plasma membrane. 2-dG exerts its inhibitory effect on the macrophage and not on the opsonized particle. The inhibition is independent of particle size, occurs within 15-30 min of addition of this glucose analogue to the medium at 37 degrees C, cannot be overcome by supra-agglutinating amounts of opsonizing antibody, and is completely reversible by substitution of 5.5 mM glucose for 50 mM 2-dG in the medium. Addition of equimolar amounts of glucose or mannose, but not of fructose, galactose, fucose, or glucosamine, to medium containing 50 mM 2-dG results in substantial reversal of the inhibitory effect of 2-dG on Fc and C3 receptor mediated phagocytosis.  (+info)

Discrimination of DNA hybridization using chemical force microscopy. (5/496)

Atomic force microscopy (AFM) can be used to probe the mechanics of molecular recognition between surfaces. In the application known as "chemical force" microscopy (CFM), a chemically modified AFM tip probes a surface through chemical recognition. When modified with a biological ligand or receptor, the AFM tip can discriminate between its biological binding partner and other molecules on a heterogeneous substrate. The strength of the interaction between the modified tip and the substrate is governed by the molecular affinity. We have used CFM to probe the interactions between short segments of single-strand DNA (oligonucleotides). First, a latex microparticle was modified with the sequence 3'-CAGTTCTACGATGGCAAGTC and epoxied to a standard AFM cantilever. This DNA-modified probe was then used to scan substrates containing the complementary sequence 5'-GTCAAGATGCTACCGTTCAG. These substrates consisted of micron-scale, patterned arrays of one or more distinct oligonucleotides. A strong friction interaction was measured between the modified tip and both elements of surface-bound DNA. Complementary oligonucleotides exhibited a stronger friction than the noncomplementary sequences within the patterned array. The friction force correlated with the measured strength of adhesion (rupture force) for the tip- and array-bound oligonucleotides. This result is consistent with the formation of a greater number of hydrogen bonds for the complementary sequence, suggesting that the friction arises from a sequence-specific interaction (hybridization) of the tip and surface DNA.  (+info)

Studies in calf venous pump function utilizing a two-valve experimental model. (6/496)

OBJECTIVES: to explore the hydrodynamic mechanisms involved in the regulation of ambulatory venous pressure. DESIGN: an experimental model of calf venous pump was constructed with collapsible tubes and valves. MATERIAL: the model consisted of a conduit and a pump with an intervening competent valve. Another valve that could allow reflux into the pump was mounted above the pump. METHODS: conduit pressure and recovery times were monitored under conditions of different degrees of ejection fraction and reflux into the pump. Model variables included using poorly compliant tubes for the pump, the conduit and for both the pump and conduit. RESULTS: the latex tube exhibited a non-linear volume-pressure relationship and a bi-modal regimen of compliance. This bestowed pressure-buffering properties. Ambulatory venous hypertension resulted when reflux beyond buffering capacity occurred. Substituting less compliant PTFE for latex at the pump had a relatively minor effect on post-ejection pressure and recovery times. Using PTFE at the conduit had a profound but divergent effect on both of these parameters. Conduit capacitance reduction had a similar effect. CONCLUSION: conduit elastance plays a significant role in the regulation of ambulatory venous pressure in this experimental model. The hydrodynamic principles illustrated by the model may enhance our understanding of the human calf venous pump.  (+info)

Separation of submicron bioparticles by dielectrophoresis. (7/496)

Submicron particles such as latex spheres and viruses can be manipulated and characterized using dielectrophoresis. By the use of appropriate microelectrode arrays, particles can be trapped or moved between regions of high or low electric fields. The magnitude and direction of the dielectrophoretic force on the particle depends on its dielectric properties, so that a heterogeneous mixture of particles can be separated to produce a more homogeneous population. In this paper the controlled separation of submicron bioparticles is demonstrated. With electrode arrays fabricated using direct write electron beam lithography, it is shown that different types of submicron latex spheres can be spatially separated. The separation occurs as a result of differences in magnitude and/or direction of the dielectrophoretic force on different populations of particles. These differences arise mainly because the surface properties of submicron particles dominate their dielectrophoretic behavior. It is also demonstrated that tobacco mosaic virus and herpes simplex virus can be manipulated and spatially separated in a microelectrode array.  (+info)

Adhesive properties of the isolated amino-terminal domain of platelet glycoprotein Ibalpha in a flow field. (8/496)

We have examined the interaction between the amino-terminal domain of platelet glycoprotein (GP) Ibalpha and immobilized von Willebrand Factor (vWF) under flow conditions in the absence of other components of the GP Ib-IX-V complex. Latex beads were coated with a recombinant fragment containing GP Ibalpha residues 1-302, either with normal sequence or with the single G233V substitution that causes enhanced affinity for plasma vWF in platelet-type pseudo-von-Willebrand disease. Beads coated with native fragment adhered to vWF in a manner comparable to platelets, showing surface translocation that reflected the transient nature of the bonds formed. Thus, the GP Ibalpha extracellular domain is necessary and sufficient for interacting with vWF under high shear stress. Beads coated with the mutated fragment became tethered to vWF in greater number and had lower velocity of translocation than beads coated with the normal counterpart, suggesting that the G233V mutation lowers the rate of bond dissociation. Our findings define an approach for studying the biomechanical properties of the GP Ibalpha-vWF bond and suggest that this interaction is tightly regulated to allow rapid binding at sites of vascular injury, while permitting the concurrent presence of receptor and ligand in the circulation.  (+info)

IgE-mediated allergic reactions to latex, while not common in the general population, are a leading cause of anaphylaxis in children, particularly for events that occur during hospitalization. Life-threatening allergic reactions may be the presenting factor of latex allergy in up to 30% of latex-sensitive children. The majority of latex-allergic individuals are highly atopic, with histories of allergic conditions such as rhinitis or asthma. The prevalence of clinical latex allergy in the general population has not been established. Studies have demonstrated that 3% to 9.5% of the general population is sensitized to latex as determined by skin or serum allergy testing; however, these numbers do not represent the prevalence of clinical reactions to latex exposure (ie, a positive allergy test does not mean a clinical allergy to latex). Studies have demonstrated a higher prevalence of latex sensitization in certain high-risk groups with frequent exposure to latex, including health care workers and ...

The frequency of latex allergy in children requiring multiple surgery ranges from 16.7% to 65%. The aim of this study was to investigate the safety and efficacy of latex desensitization in a group of 10 patients with a history of multiple surgical procedures and clinically manifested allergy to latex. We selected 10 children (femalemale ratio = 5:5), aged 416 yr (mean ± s.d.: 9 ± 4), with a history of multiple surgical procedures, adverse reactions to latex and positive skin test to latex and/or specific immunoglobulin E (IgE). Latex allergy diagnosis was confirmed by specific provocation tests (cutaneous, sublingual, mucous, conjunctival tests). Rush (4-day) sublingual desensitization was performed with increasing doses of latex extract (ALK Abellò) under patients tongue until the highest dose of 500 μg of latex. A maintenance therapy (10 drops of undiluted solution three times a week) was recommended. During the 2-yr follow-up mean values of specific IgG4 and IgE, eosinophilic cationic ...

Sensitization to latex proteins can cause immediate IgE mast cell-mediated reactions. Health care workers have been found to be particularly at risk because of high exposure. Latex allergy can be produced in mice as demonstrated by IgE and eosinophil responses. Thus the mouse is a potential animal model for studying this disease, but the airway response to latex sensitization in mice has not been evaluated previously. In the present study, we immunized BALB/c mice intranasally with nonammoniated latex proteins. Animals were anesthetized, and lung mechanics were evaluated plethysmographically. Changes in pulmonary conductance (GL) and compliance (Cdyn) were measured in response to a nonspecific challenge with methacholine or to a direct challenge with intravenous latex antigen. Latex sensitization resulted in elevated levels of IgE and latex-specific IgG1 as well as interstitial infiltrates consistent with an allergic response. The methacholine dose-response ED50 for GL was 116.4 μg for the control mice

Immediate hypersensitivity reactions ranging from mild urticaria to life threatening anaphylaxis after exposure to natural rubber latex have been reported frequently in health care workers while occupational asthma due to latex exposure is less well studied. The results of specific challenge tests and immunological tests in four health care workers with work related respiratory and skin disorders induced by the use of latex gloves are described. Occupational asthma was confirmed in three subjects by specific challenge tests. All had a positive skin test reaction to the latex extract; specific IgE antibodies were detected in only one subject. The fourth subject had a negative specific inhalation and skin test reaction to the latex extract. Peak expiratory flow monitoring at work and away from work showed a pattern consistent with work related asthma. These findings confirm that latex is a cause of occupational asthma in health care workers.. ...

PERLTEX , , By Scott Pakin, [email protected] , +------------------------------------+ Description ----------- PerlTeX is a combination Perl script (perltex.pl) and LaTeX2e style file (perltex.sty) that, together, give the user the ability to define LaTeX macros in terms of Perl code. Once defined, a Perl macro becomes indistinguishable from any other LaTeX macro. PerlTeX thereby combines LaTeXs typesetting power with Perls programmability. Installation ------------ In case its not obvious, youll need a Perl installation. Perl is freely available and runs on dozens of platforms. See the list of Perl binary distributions on CPAN (http://www.cpan.org/ports/index.html). Execute latex perltex.ins to generate perltex.sty and perltex.pl. Install perltex.sty in an appropriate directory (e.g., /usr/local/share/texmf/tex/latex/misc or C:\localtexmf\tex\latex\misc). perltex.pl is a Perl script. On Unix, you may want to rename it to just perltex and set execute permissions (chmod +x perltex). On ...
Background: Latex is a relevant occupational and environmental allergen, strongly related to the extensive use of natural rubber products. Objectives: Threshold Limit Values have to be identified, as well as biocompatible materials in order to avoid sensitization or appearance of allergic symptoms. Methods: In this paper we consider the main methods, which have been used to detecting latex allergens for environmental monitoring of airborne and latex products. Results: We report our experience in such afield, and our approach to the latex problem, suggesting that quantification of allergens, which is currently applicable according to well standardized methods, should be adopted by manufacturers, agency and consumer organization.. ...

Abstract : The enzymatic properties of Plumeria rubra latex have been evaluated for the first time, showing a high activity in both hydrolysis and synthesis reactions, and compared to the biocatalytic behavior of babaco (Vasconcellea x Heilbornii cv.) latex. Both biocatalysts have been optimized by studying the various parameters that influence reaction kinetics. The optimum temperatures for hydrolysis reactions were 50 and 55°C for babaco and Plumeria, respectively. The optimum pH for babaco latex was 7, whereas for Plumeria latex, two optimal pH values (4 and 7) were observed. With regard to esterification and acyl transfer reactions such as alcoholysis and interesterification, the influence of thermodynamic water activity on reaction yields was determined and correlated with water sorption and desorption isotherms. When babaco latex is used as a biocatalyst, optimal synthesis reaction yields are obtained when the enzymatic extract is stabilized at a water activity value of 0.38, which ...

The decibel level of a sound having the threshold intensity of[latex]\boldsymbol{10^{-12}\textbf{ W/m}^2}[/latex]is[latex]\boldsymbol{\beta=0\textbf{dB}},[/latex]because[latex]\boldsymbol{\textbf{log}_{10}1=0}.[/latex]That is, the threshold of hearing is 0 decibels. Table 2 gives levels in decibels and intensities in watts per meter squared for some familiar sounds.. One of the more striking things about the intensities in Table 2 is that the intensity in watts per meter squared is quite small for most sounds. The ear is sensitive to as little as a trillionth of a watt per meter squared-even more impressive when you realize that the area of the eardrum is only about[latex]\boldsymbol{1\textbf{ cm}^2},[/latex]so that only[latex]\boldsymbol{10^{-16}}[/latex]W falls on it at the threshold of hearing! Air molecules in a sound wave of this intensity vibrate over a distance of less than one molecular diameter, and the gauge pressures involved are less ...
Students use latex tubes and bicycle pumps to conduct experiments to gather data about the relationship between latex strength and air pressure. Then they use this data to extrapolate latex strength to the size of latex tubing that would be needed in modern passenger sedans to serve as hybrid vehicle accelerators, thus answering the engineering design challenge question posed in the first lesson of this unit.
Hevea brasiliensis is an important industrial crop for natural rubber production. Latex biosynthesis occurs in the cytoplasm of highly specialized latex cells and requires sucrose as the unique precursor. Ethylene stimulation of latex production results in high sugar flow from the surrounding cells of inner bark towards the latex cells. The aim of this work was to understand the role of seven sucrose transporters (HbSUTs) and one hexose transporter (HbHXT1) in this process. Two Hevea clones were used: PB217 and PB260, respectively described as high and low yielding clones. The expression pattern of these sugar transporters (HbSUTs and HbHXT1) was monitored under different physiological conditions and found to be maximal in latex cells. HbSUT1, one of the most abundant isoforms, displayed the greatest response to ethylene treatment. In clone PB217, ethylene treatment led to a higher accumulation of HbSUT1B in latex cells than in the inner bark tissues. Conversely, stronger expression of HbSUT1B ...

Natural latex rubber products have been known to cause severe anaphylactic reactions during surgery. Even 25 years after the first description of anaphylactic reactions in the literature, natural latex rubber products are still used in pediatric surgery. The following article describes the case of a healthy 4.5-year old Caucasian boy who simultaneously developed severe hypotension, tachycardia and bronchospasm during surgery for congenital strabismus sursoadductorius under uneventful anesthesia. An allergy test conducted afterwards showed natural latex rubber as the trigger for this severe intraoperative anaphylactic reaction. This case was special because of the absence of any previous clinical or anamnestical evidence of natural latex rubber allergy. The fact that the child had been previously exposed to natural latex rubber - because the boys mother used disposable gloves for her work as a cosmetician at home - was only discovered later. Such contact may have had a slight sensitizing effect that
TY - THES. T1 - Residual monomer reduction in polymer latex products by extraction with supercritical carbon dioxide. AU - Aerts, M.. PY - 2012. Y1 - 2012. N2 - The increased awareness for environmental issues as well as for public health, demands greener processes as well as products. In the polymer industry, one of the major concerns relate to residual monomer in polymer (latex) products. Low molecular species are toxic. When monomer units diffuse out of their polymeric matrix, they contaminate the surrounding area. Decreasing the residual monomer level in polymer (latex) products is especially of great importance in food packaging, toys for children, etc. Conventional techniques to reduce residual monomer in polymer (latex) products are energy intensive, time consuming and not able to fulfill the increasingly stringent requirements for further reduction of residual monomer in polymer products, i.e. ,100 parts per million (ppm). In this thesis the reduction of residual monomer in polymer ...
Calotropis is a genus of flowering plants in the dogbane family, Apocynaceae, first described as a genus in 1810. It is native to southern Asia and North Africa. They are commonly known as milkweeds because of the latex they produce. Calotropis species are considered common weeds in some parts of the world. The flowers are fragrant and are often used in making floral tassels in some mainland Southeast Asian cultures. Fibers of these plants are called madar or mader. Calotropis species are usually found in abandoned farmland. Calotropis gigantea and C. procera are the two most common species in the genus. Calotropis gigantea grows to a height of 8 to 10 ft (2.4 to 3.0 m) while C. procera grows to about 3 to 6 ft (0.91 to 1.83 m). The leaves are sessile and sub-sessile, opposite, ovate, cordate at the base. The flowers are about 1.5 to 2 in (3.8 to 5.1 cm) in size, with umbellate lateral cymes and are colored white to pink and are fragrant in case of C. procera while the flowers of C. gigantea are ...
Abstract This work presents antibacterial potential and anatomical investigation of Calotropis procera (Aiton) Dryand. Populations from different areas of Mirpur (Azad Jammu & Kashmir), Pakistan. In the research, three different areas (viz: Jarikus, Khaliqabad and Jatlan) were selected for population sampling (leaf parts) having no symptom of disease. Leaf powder was macerated in two solvents and tested against four pathogenic bacterial strains (Staphylococcus aureus, Bacillus subtilis, Escherichia coli and Pseudomonas aeruginosa). The methanolic extract depicted highest zone of inhibition (ZI) values with 14.67±1 mm against Pseudomonas aeruginosa (PA) while aqueous extract showed good ZI (14±1 mm) against this bacterium. Extract from Jatlan sample showed highest ZI values for methanolic fraction against Staphylococcus aureus and least effect against Bacillus subtilis (13±1 mm). Against E. coli methanol showed 14.7±0.8 mm and aqueous showed 11±0.5 mm zone of inhibition. Against Pseudomonas ...

People who have an oral allergy to avocado are also allergic to birch pollen and the symptoms that come from an allergic reaction to avocado … Latex allergy is a medical term encompassing a range of allergic reactions to the proteins present in natural rubber latex. People who suffer from this condition either have an oral allergy to avocados or are allergic to latex. Avocado allergy may be more than a straightforward food allergy. Avocado allergy is a rare condition but easily manageable.   Similar such crossreactivity has been demonstrated for avocado (2). Symptoms of latex allergy may progress rapidly and unpredictably to anaphylaxis. It appears that many of these positive skin tests do not necessarily mean that the person will experience allergic symptoms if the food is eaten. Avocado allergy due to Latex. Avocado allergy can take two different forms: one associated with allergy to tree pollen, such as birch, and another type associated with latex allergy. If you have a latex allergy ...
BACKGROUND: Two natural rubber latex proteins, Hev b 1 and Hev b 3, have been described in spina bifida (SB)-associated latex allergy.. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to clone and express Hev b 3 and to obtain the immunologic active and soluble recombinant allergen for diagnosis of SB-associated latex allergy.. METHODS: A complementary DNA (cDNA) coding for Hev b 3 was amplified from RNA of fresh latex collected from Malaysian rubber trees (Hevea brasiliensis). PCR primers were designed according to sequences of internal peptide fragments of natural (n) Hev b 3. The 5-end sequence was obtained by specific amplification of cDNA ends. The recombinant (r) Hev b 3 was produced in Escherichia coli as a 6xHis tagged protein. Immunoblotting and inhibition assays were performed to characterize the recombinant allergen.. RESULTS: An Hev b 3 cDNA clone of 922 bp encoding a protein of 204 amino acid residues corresponding to a molecular weight of 22.3 kd was obtained. In immunoblots 29/35, ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Eosinophilic Esophagitis During Latex Desensitization. AU - Nucera, Eleonora. AU - Urbani, Sara. AU - Buonomo, Alessandro. AU - Andriollo, Gloria. PY - 2020. Y1 - 2020. N2 - Latex allergy is a relevant clinical problem observed especially among health-care workers, spina bifida patients and individuals who had multiple surgical procedures. Type I hypersensitivity latex reactions are more frequent than type IV (latex allergic contact dermatitis) and consist of skin involvement (urticaria and/or angioedema), respiratory symptoms (asthma/rhinitis) to systemic anaphylaxis. Thoseare elicited by direct contact with natural rubber latex items (i.e. medical devices) or by inhalation of latex airborne proteins. After diagnosis, prevention is the standard and best measure, but the strict avoidance is often impossible. Therefore in selected cases, the sublingual immunotherapy (SLIT) may be a therapeutic approach able to influence the long-term natural history of latex allergy [1]. During ...

We have reported previously (H. R. Kotilainen, J. P. Brinker, J. L. Avato, and N. M. Gantz, Arch. Intern. Med. 149:2749-2753, 1989) that the quality of nonsterile examination gloves available for clinical use may be extremely variable. In view of the concern over human immunodeficiency virus and hepatitis B virus transmission to health care workers, the continuing variability of gloves available for use, and the need for a simple and safe test, we have evaluated 2,500 vinyl (five brands) and 2,000 latex (four brands) gloves by the 300-ml and the newly proposed 1,000-ml water tests and for permeability to herpes simplex virus type 1 and poliovirus type 1, respectively. While all 300-ml watertight gloves were unlikely to leak herpes simplex virus type 1 (1.3% vinyl; 0.5% latex), poliovirus was recovered much more frequently (8.9% vinyl, 6.1% latex). In all gloves that passed the 1,000-ml test, herpes simplex virus type 1 was not recovered. Poliovirus was recovered infrequently (1.4% vinyl, 1.5% latex).

Hev b 6.01 is a major allergen of natural rubber latex with sensitization of 70-86% of latex glove-allergic subjects. Recently, we mapped the immunodominant T cell sites of Hev b 6.01 to the highly IgE-reactive hevein (Hev b 6.02) domain. Hev b 6.01 contains 14 cysteine residues with multiple disulphide bridges stabilizing tertiary conformation. With the goal of a standardized specific immunotherapy we developed hypoallergenic Hev b 6.01 mutants by site-directed mutagenesis of selected cysteine residues (3, 12, 17, and 41) within the Hev b 6.02 domain. Peptides corresponding to the Hev b 6.02 domain of two of the mutants were also synthesized. These mutants and peptide variants showed markedly decreased or ablated latex-allergic patient serum IgE binding by immunoblotting and ELISA. Basophil activation testing confirmed markedly decreased activation with successive cysteine substitutions of the mutants and complete abrogation with the Hev b 6.02 (Cys 3, 12, 17, 41 Ala) peptide. Retention of T ...

Latex allergy is rare in the general population, with a prevalence of 1%.22 However, it is a concern for individuals with spina bifida and other disorders.22-25 Latex allergy is very common in these populations, with up to 60% of individuals with spina bifida having allergies to latex.25 It is an immunoglobulin E-mediated hypersensitivity reaction to natural rubber latex that can result in urticaria, rhinitis, bronchospasm, and anaphylaxis.23 Bernardini et al.25 found that 25% of subjects with spina bifida had latex sensitization, and only 33% of those individuals have had clinical reactions to latex. Although severe reactions are rare, such reactions at greater depths would present a life-threatening event. Therefore, previous screening is important. Individuals at risk for latex allergies, especially people with spina bifida, may wish to consult an allergist for skin prick or serum latex-specific immunoglobulin E antibody testing before considering SCUBA diving. Those individuals who are at ...

Excluding the water bed mattress, there are mainly three types that dominate todays market - the coil-spring, foam, and adjustable air mattresses. The coil-spring mattress is by far the most popular, consisting of a mattress and box spring.. They offer great durability, adequate support, and a fairly reasonable price in most cases. However, some people complain that coil-spring mattresses create pressure points which can cause back and joint pain.. Foam mattresses are extremely popular amongst individuals suffering from back and hip pain. Foam can be one of three kinds: natural latex, synthetic latex, or memory foam. Both forms of latex are very similar in terms of their comfort, durability, and feel, so the only reason for choosing natural latex over synthetic would probably be a desire to have a green mattress..

This fungus infects over 530 species of plants in 53 families. It is most common in the tropics and subtropics. It has also been isolated from nematodes and from human skin. The fungus is known as a pathogen of many agricultural crop plants, especially cowpea, cucumber, papaya, rubber, soybean, and tomato. It has caused crop failures resulting in high economic losses in over 70 countries, including losses of over US$3000 per acre in tomato crops in Florida in the United States. On several plants, such as tomatoes, the fungus causes a disease called target spot or target leaf spot. The disease is identified by leaf damage taking the form of target-shaped spots with light centres and dark margins, as well as pits on the fruit. The fungus also causes a disease on the cultivated rubber tree Hevea brasiliensis called ...

The FDA recently released a statement proposing a ban on most powdered surgical gloves in the United States. The powder, usually in the form of corn starch, is added to facilitate putting on the gloves and taking them off, as well as providing some comfort. The FDAs concerns about the powder stems from its use in latex gloves, which are known to cause an allergic reaction in some people due to the presence of latex proteins. A 1997 study by the FDA showed that the powder used in latex gloves can act as an airborne carrier for these latex proteins, as the latex proteins can bind to the cornstarch. The resulting aerosolized powder can lead to respiratory allergic reactions. The powder could also potentially get into wound sites and cause dermal allergic reactions ...

1. A novel arctigenin-containing latex glove prevents latex allergy by inhibiting type I/IV allergic reactions. Wang YX, Xue DT, Liu M, Zhou ZM, Shang J. A novel arctigenin-containing latex glove prevents latex allergy by inhibiting type I/IV allergic reactions. Chinese Journal of Natural Medicines 2016; 14(3): 185-195. (doi:10.1016/S1875-5364(16)30015-2). Abstract. Wang and colleagues aimed at developing a natural compound with anti-allergic effect as well as stability under latex glove manufacturing conditions and investigated whether its anti-allergic effect could be maintained after its addition into the latex. The effects of nine natural compounds on growth of the RBL-2H3 cells and mouse primary spleen lymphocytes were determined using MTT assay. The compounds examined included glycyrrhizin, osthole, tetrandrine, tea polyphenol, catechin, arctigenin, oleanolic acid, baicalin and oxymatrine. An ELISA assay was used for the in vitro anti-type I/IV allergy screening; in this process ...
