Welcome to Lugano
Dear members
of the Swiss Society of Allergology and Immunology,
dear friends,
colleagues and guests,
I am very happy inviting you to the annual meeting of our society, which
will take place in the hopefully sunny Ticino. The organizers around
Federica ­Sallusto and Brunello Wüthrich have done a tremendous job and
have found a perfect balance between the interests and needs of the
basic researchers, the laboratory immunologists as well as the practicing
allergo­logists.
It is now up to you to fill the congress with life by showing your interest
and participation in the different lectures. I am looking forward to seeing
you all in Lugano and wish you a successful meeting.
Sincerely,
Prof. Dr. med. A. Bircher
President SSAI

Welcome to Lugano
Dear friends and colleagues,
It is with a great pleasure that we welcome you to the Annual Congress
of the Swiss Society for Allergology and Immunology (SGAI-SSAI).
The Congress is organized by the Institute for Research in Biomedicine
(IRB) together with the Society of Allergologists and Immunologists of
Ticino (STAI) and will feature joint Symposia with the European Academy
of Dermatology and Venereology (EADV) and the Swiss Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Society.
The meeting in Lugano brings together established basic scientists and
clinicians along with young researchers and residents, postdocs and
students who will present their work at symposia, workshops and poster
sessions. It is our policy, and the policy of SGAI, to support the new
generations of immunologists and allergologists and to promote an inter­
active environment that enriches both senior and junior investigators.
The Congress Opening Lecture will be given by John O’Shea who will
discuss the «Transcriptional and epigenetic control of T cell differentiation».
Thomas Schwartz will give the SGAI-EADV Joint Lecture with the title
«Dermatoimmunology: dogmas going through a radical change», David
Hafler will give the SGAI-MS Society Joint Lecture «The genetics of
multiple sclerosis», and Jean-Claude Weill will give a Plenary Lecture on «Multiple layers of B cell memory». The program features 12 Symposia,
6 Sessions for short talks, the SGAI Professional Political Forum and
Corporate Lunch Symposia. The SGAI-SSAI General assembly will be held
on Thursday at 17.30. All members of the society are welcome to attend
and contribute to the assembly.
As complement to the scientific program, all participants are invited to
the reception on Thursday, which is kindly offered by the City of Lugano,
and to participate to the Gala dinner at the «La Perla Wine and Dine»
Restaurant on Casinò di Lugano’s top floor, which boasts an incomparable
view of the lake and the gulf of Lugano. We hope you will also have the
opportunity to enjoy the beauty of the Canton Ticino that offers spectacular
natural surroundings at the foot of the Alps and in the midst of the Lake
district.

In this occasion we would like to express our gratitude to the members
of the Organizing Committee for helping us raise funds and selecting
abstracts for oral and poster presentation. We would like also to express
our appreciation to the public and corporate sponsors. Without their
support and commitment the congress would not have been possible.
We are finally grateful to invited speakers and chairpersons and to the
participants for their contribution to the meeting.
We wish you all a pleasant stay.

Abgekürzte Fachinformation SINGULAIR : Indikation: Chronisches Bronchialasthma bei Erwachsenen und Kindern ab 6 Jahren. Bei Kindern von 2 bis 5 Jahren mit gesicherter Asthmadiagnose: a) als Monotherapie bei leichten,
nicht steroidpflichtigen Formen; b) als Zusatztherapie zu Kortikoiden bei schwereren Formen. Bei Kindern von 6 Monaten bis 2 Jahren mit gesicherter Asthmadiagnose: a) als Monotherapie bei leichten, nicht steroidpflichtigen Formen,
vor allem wenn eine Inhalationstherapie schwierig durchführbar ist; b) als Zusatztherapie zu Kortikoiden bei schweren Formen. Linderung von Symptomen der saisonalen und perennialen allergischen Rhinitis bei Erwachsenen und
Kindern ab 2 Jahren. Dosierung/Anwendung: Erwachsene eine 10 mg Tablette pro Tag. 6 – 14 jährige Kinder eine 5 mg Kautablette pro Tag. 2 – 5 jährige Kinder eine 4 mg Kautablette oder ein Sachet 4 mg pro Tag. 6 monatige –
2 jährige Kinder ein Sachet 4 mg pro Tag. Für die Behandlung von Asthma sollte die Dosis am Abend vor der Bettruhe, für die Behandlung der allergischen Rhinitis sollte sie entweder morgens oder abends eingenommen werden.
SINGULAIR kann mit oder ohne gleichzeitige Nahrung eingenommen werden. SINGULAIR orales Granulat kann entweder direkt auf die Zunge oder in den Mund gegeben werden oder vermischt auf einem Löffel mit weicher
Nahrung oder eingerührt in einem Teelöffel Babynahrung oder Muttermilch (jedoch nicht in andere Flüssigkeiten) und sollte innerhalb 15 Minuten nach Öffnen des Sachets verabreicht werden. SINGULAIR kann zu einer bestehenden
Asthmatherapie mit inhalativen Kortikoiden oder ß2-Agonisten nach Bedarf hinzugefügt werden. SINGULAIR bringt zusätzlichen klinischen Nutzen für Patienten unter inhalativen Kortikoiden. Kontraindikationen: Überempfindlichkeit gegenüber einem der Bestandteile dieses Produkts. Vorsichtsmassnahmen: SINGULAIR sollte nicht zur Behandlung von akuten Asthmaanfällen eingesetzt werden. Obwohl die Dosis von gleichzeitigen inhalativen Kortikoiden
unter ärztlicher Aufsicht stufenweise reduziert werden kann, sollte SINGULAIR nicht als plötzlicher Ersatz für inhalative oder orale Kortikoide eingenommen werden. Die Reduktion der systemischen Kortikosteroid-Dosis führte bei
Patienten unter Leukotrien-Rezeptor-Antagonisten in seltenen Fällen zu einer systemischen eosinophilen Vaskulitis. Unerwünschte Wirkungen: Gesamtinzidenz von unter SINGULAIR aufgetretenen Nebenwirkungen war mit Plazebo vergleichbar. Erwachsene: Dyspepsie, Bauchschmerzen, Zahnschmerzen und Kopfschmerzen mit höherer Inzidenz als unter Placebo. Inzidenzrate dieser Erscheinungen in beiden Gruppen ist nicht signifikant unterschiedlich.
Kinder: Kopfschmerzen (Kinder 6 – 14 J.) und Durst (Kinder 2 – 5 J.) mit einer höheren Inzidenz als unter Placebo, Durchfall, Hyperkinesie, Asthma, ekzematöse Dermatitis und Hautausschlag (Kinder 6 Mt. – 2 J.) mit tendentiell höherer
Inzidenz als unter Placebo. Inzidenzrate dieser Erscheinungen in beiden Gruppen nicht signifikant unterschiedlich. Interaktionen: SINGULAIR kann gleichzeitig mit anderen Substanzen, die routinemässig zur chronischen Asthmabehandlung und Behandlung der allergischen Rhinitis verwendet werden, verabreicht werden. Keine wesentliche Wirkung auf die Pharmakokinetik von: Prednisolon, orale Antikonzeptiva, Terfenadin, Digoxin und Warfarin. In in vitro
Studien ist Montelukast ein Inhibitor von CYP2C8, es wurden jedoch keine in vivo Studien durchgeführt. Packungen: SINGULAIR (Montelukast): Filmtabletten zu 10 mg: 28 und 98, Kautabletten zu 5 mg: 28 und 98, Kautabletten zu
4 mg: 28 und 98, Sachets zu 4 mg oralem Granulat: 28. Verkaufskategorie B. Stand der Information: Februar 2009. Kassenpflichtig.

cellular allergy diagnostics for
immediate-type reactions
The most often presumed etiology of life-threatening anaphylactic reactions are caused by food (33%), insect venoms (14%)
and drugs (13%). In these specific fields of allergy the BÜHLMANN
CAST® are at the forefront of the cellular allergy in vitro diagnosis.
This basophil activation test offers an easy, fast (1h), reliable, flowcytometric and whole blood based solution. This routinefriedly test
identifies the culprit allergen clearly thanks to superior specificity and
sensitivity. It supports the diagnosis where specific IgE is not sufficient.
Since many years BÜHLMANN Laboratories AG, Schönenbuch, is
the only company worldwide that provides cellular allergy tests
in combination with standardised allergens (>150). We use this
knowledge for the development of new tests, like the unique activation measurement via CD63 and CD203c – CE marked soon.

Die erste
Immuntherapie in
Tablettenform bei
Gräser-Allergie
AB 5 JAHR
GRAZAX®:
Zusammensetzung: Lyophilisierte Allergentablette aus Gräserpollen von Phleum pratense zur spezifischen Immuntherapie. Eine Tablette enthält 75 000 SQ-T. Hilfsstoffe: Gelatine, Mannitol. Indikation: Behandlung von Gräserpollen-bedingter Rhinitis und Konjunktivitis bei Kindern (5 Jahre und älter) und bei erwachsenen Patienten mit positivem Prick-Test und/oder positivem spezifischem IgE-Test
auf Phleum pratense. Bei Kindern muss die Indikation sorgfältig gestellt werden. Dosierung: Erwachsene, Kinder (5 Jahre und älter)
und ältere Patienten: 75 000 SQ-T (1 Dosis) einmal täglich, unter die Zunge. Kontraindikationen: Überempfindlichkeit gegen einen der
Hilfsstoffe. Systemische Erkrankungen, die das Immunsystem beeinträchtigen wie z.B. Immunkomplexkrankheiten und Immundefektkrankheiten. Patienten mit unzureichend behandeltem oder schwerem Asthma (bei Erwachsenen FEV1<70%, bei Kindern FEV1<80%
des Vorhersagewertes nach adäquater pharmakologischer Therapie). Vorsichtsmassnahmen: Entzündliche Zustände in der Mundhöhle mit schwerwiegenden Symptomen. Nach operativen Eingriffen in der Mundhöhle, Zahnextraktionen, Ausfall eines Milchzahnes bei
Kindern die Behandlung mit Grazax für 7 Tage unterbrechen. Kinder, die gleichzeitig Asthma und eine akute Infektion der oberen Atemwege haben, Behandlung bis zum Abklingen der Infektion unterbrechen. Bei Patienten, die bereits früher eine systemische Reaktion auf
eine subkutane Immuntherapie mit Gräserpollen hatten, kann das Risiko erhöht sein, eine ernsthafte Reaktion auf Grazax zu entwickeln.
Kinder unter 12 Jahren müssen nach Einnahme der Tabletten mind. 30 min unter Aufsicht einer erwachsenen Person bleiben. Interaktionen:
gleichzeitige Behandlung mit symptomatisch wirkenden Antiallergika kann die Toleranzgrenze des Patienten für die Immuntherapie erhöhen.
Schwangerschaft/ Stillzeit: Keine Behandlung mit Grazax während der Schwangerschaft einleiten. Unerwünschte Wirkungen: Gastrointestinal: Juckreiz im Mund, Mundschwellung, oropharyngeale Schwellung, Dyspepsie, Übelkeit, Zungenschwellung, -brennen, die selten
zu Atembehinderung führen können. Atmungsorgane: Halsirritationen, Niesen, Husten, Asthma, Pharyngitis, Rhinorrhoe, Rhinits, Engegefühl
im Hals. Augen: Juckreiz am Auge, Konjunktivitis. Ohr: Juckreiz im Ohr. NS: Kopfschmerzen, orale Parästhesie. Haut: Juckreiz. Patienten sollen angewiesen werden, sofort einen Arzt zu konsultieren, falls schwerwiegende system. Reaktionen, Angioödem, Schluckschwierigkeiten,
Atemschwierigkeiten, Stimmverränderungen, Hypotonie oder Klossgefühl im Hals auftreten. In solchen Fällen soll die Behandlung abgebrochen werden, entweder für immer oder bis auf andere Anweisung des Arztes. Packungen: 30, 100 Tabletten. Abgabekaterorie: A . Stand August 2010.
