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).
