Food allergy consists of a wide range of disorders that result from adverse immune responses to dietary antigens. Manifestations of allergic response includes acute, potentially fatal anaphylactic reactions and a variety of chronic diseases that mainly affect the gastrointestinal tract, skin, and respiratory tract. Tools for clinical diagnosis and management, which have not changed much in the past two decades, include the clinical history, tests for specific IgE antibody to suspected foods, elimination diets, oral food challenges, and provision of medications such as epinephrine for emergency treatment. On the other hand, recent immunological and molecular biological research have enhanced our understanding of the mechanisms of these disorders and revealed the identities of many food allergens. Here, we will discuss seafood allergies with respect to the clinical manifestations, diagnosis, immunological mechanisms, and molecular biology of seafood allergens. Furthermore, potential applications and future directions in the clinical management of seafood allergies are discussed.

Attention Score in Context

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 28 April 2016.
All research outputs
of 22,865,319 outputs
Outputs from Advances in biochemical engineering biotechnology
of 224 outputs
Outputs of similar age
of 58,267 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Advances in biochemical engineering biotechnology
of 1 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 22,865,319 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 22nd percentile – i.e., 22% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 224 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 4.6. This one is in the 37th percentile – i.e., 37% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 58,267 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 6th percentile – i.e., 6% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 1 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than all of them
