Moscow newborns: a demand of primary dietary prophylaxis of allergy

Geneva M.S., Pampura A.N.


Background. Primary prevention of allergic diseases in children is specified by the increase of allergic diseases prevalence in a population and may be mediated through the special milk formulas. The study aimed to evaluate the prevalence of allergic symptoms in families of Moscow newborns and to evaluate the hypothetic demand in a special milk formula dietary supplement. Methods. 18 visits to the Postnatal Department of Moscow No.1 Maternity Hospital were carried out. All women delivered in the preceding 48 hours were questioned on each visit. Information on relatives of a newborns family and on allergic manifestations in them has been obtained from the mothers. Information on 3534 relatives of 393 newborns was collected. Results. Moscow newborns-2011 cohort have allergy manifestations in one close relative within 41,7% families, in two or more relatives within 14,5% families. In case of all relatives studied the respective prevalence is 59% and 25,1%. Conclusion. Moscow newborns-2011 primary prevention of allergy (including special formula supplement) is probable in 14,5 % families in case of two or more close relatives with allergies and in 25% families in case two or more relatives with allergy within the wide range of them.

Influence of the Рriorix vaccination on cytokine profile and IgE level in healthy children and patients with atopic dermatitis

Toptygina A.P., Alioshkin V.A.


Background. The aim of the study was to investigate peculiarities of immune responses on the vaccination with Priorix in healthy children and patients with atopic dermatitis. Methods. Thirty five healthy children aged 1-2 years old (Group 1) and 15 children the same age with atopic dermatitis (Group 2) were vaccinated with Priorix. Serum level of IgE was measured by ELISA, and serum concentrations of 7 cytokines: IL-4, IL-5, IL-6, IL-8, IL-10, IFN-γ, and TNF-α were measured by BioPlex technology before vaccination, 7 days, and 30 days after. Serum level of IgE was measured by ELISA. Results. The level of serum IgE relatively decreased or increased on seventh day after vaccination. In a month IgE level returned back. It was found that in group1 51,4% children demonstrated Th1 type response and 48,6% children showed Th2 type response on the vaccination. Similar distribution was obtained in group 2 (53,3% children showed Th1 type response and 46,7% children demonstrated Th2 type). A significant positive correlation was observed between IgE level increasing and Th2 type of immune response. It was shown that 68,6% of children of group 1 and 66,7% of children of group 2 demonstrated after vaccination the superiority of anti-inflammatory IL-10 over pro-inflammatory TNF-α. We suppose that children with atopic dermatitis can be vaccinated with Priorix.

Safety and physiological action of probiotics as remedies for immune correction

Kalyuzhin O.V.


Disclosure of mechanisms that are used by the intestinal microbiota to maintain host immune homeostasis has established a scientific basis for the use of probiotics as immunomodulators. From the standpoint of physiological action, probiotics seem to be attractive targets for the search of effective remedies to strengthen antiinfectious immune response. The potential to cause intestinal and extraintestinal infections and to disseminate genes of antimicrobial resistance necessitates careful monitoring of probiotic strains safety. WHO, FAO, EFSA and some other international organizations have formulated the principles for assessment of probiotic safety and efficacy, which contribute to the appearance on the market of reliable remedies for the correction of immune disorders.
