I know we have a general news & research area, but I thought it might be nice to start a research thread specifically for sesame.

"Characterizing the relationship between sesame, coconut, and nut allergy in children"
http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/j.1399-3038.2010.00997.x/full

published online: 15 NOV 2010

Quote
Sensitization to sesame was more likely in children with positive SPT to peanuts (odds ratio [OR] = 6.7, 95% confidence interval [CI] [2.7–16.8], p < 0.001) and tree nuts (OR = 10.5, 95% CI [4.0–27.7], p < 0.001). Children with histories of both peanut and tree nut reaction were more likely to have a history of sesame reaction (OR = 10.2, 95% CI [2.7–38.7], p < 0.001).

"Sesame and nut allergies may often strike together"
http://wtaq.com/news/articles/2011/jan/13/sesame-and-nut-allergies-may-often-strike-together/#

Quote
Dr. Wanda Phipatanakul, of Children's Hospital Boston, and her colleagues studied the medical records of 191 children


Quote
Between 13 percent and 15 percent of peanut and tree nut allergic children were actually allergic to sesame


Quote
The rate of sesame allergy jumped up to 50 percent for children allergic to both nuts

she recommends education specific to sesame should be provided to primary care physicians, parents and day care and school personnel. She also advocates for the food industry being subjected to stricter labeling guidelines on this emerging food allergen.

Although specific IgE to peanut were higher than for sesame, peanut-induced allergic reactions were mild, in contrary to sesame where anaphylaxis was the only clinical manifestation.

Thank you so much for this!! We should definitely create a linker thread from the research forum to this thread, but I think it is a terrific idea to house individual allergen research like this.
 
So much of the clinical research is becoming allergen-specific. It's really a wealth of information, and I'm so encouraged that the nuances between food allergens are being explored (for example, the conventional wisdom re: which allergen proteins are the "important" ones in egg, milk, and peanut allergy) but it sure makes it a lot denser in this forest.  :thumbsup:

Parsing it out like this is very helpful to let us see the individual grove that we happen to be standing in, as we look at all these trees. THANK YOU!!

"Prevalence of challenge-proven IgE-mediated food allergy using population-based sampling and predetermined challenge criteria in infants"

The Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology
Volume 127, Issue 3 , Pages 668-676.e2, March 2011

www.jacionline.org/article/S0091-6749(11)00135-7/abstract

Quote
Recruitment occurred at childhood immunization sessions in Melbourne, Australia.


Quote
Amongst 2848 infants (73% participation rate), the prevalence of any sensitization to peanut was 8.9% (95% CI, 7.9-10.0); raw egg white, 16.5% (95% CI, 15.1-17.9); sesame, 2.5% (95% CI, 2.0-3.1); cow's milk, 5.6% (95% CI, 3.2-8.0); and shellfish, 0.9% (95% CI, 0.6-1.5). The prevalence of challenge-proven peanut allergy was 3.0% (95% CI, 2.4-3.8); raw egg allergy, 8.9% (95% CI, 7.8-10.0); and sesame allergy, 0.8% (95% CI, 0.5-1.1).

A 9-mm wheal after skin prick testing provided a 95% positive predictive value for egg or peanut allergy in an analysis of data from 5,000 12-month-old infants

71 with sesame challenges. None of the wheal sizes after sesame challenges reached a 95% positive predictive value for allergy, said Dr. Gurrin of the University of Melbourne.

I know this is a more general research article, but I wanted to keep track that sesame was a common allergen that was being challenged.
