The problem of seasonal incidence in children and adults with acute respiratory infections in recent decades has become increasingly important. This is due not only to an increase in the number of urban population and a naturally increasing frequency of contacts, but also to the nutritional characteristics of modern man. The diet of most residents in different countries of the world today is very different from the diet of generations who lived more than a century ago. When there were no technologies for long-term storage of finished products, the population ate foods rich in vitamins and sour-milk bacteria.

According to research, cats are extremely popular pets both in the world and in our country. The widespread occurrence of cats leads to the widespread high concentration of their allergens. The role of exposure to cat allergens in the development and course of allergic pathology, according to published data, remains controversial. Most researchers note the protective effect of an early exposure to cat allergens. At the same time, a number of studies have shown an increase in the risk of developing allergic diseases and a decrease in control over their course.
The aim of this study was to identify the relationship between the characteristics of the course of allergic pathology and the age of the first contact with cat allergens.

Acute intestinal infections (acute intestinal infections) remain an important public health problem due to their mass, severe course and the associated economic damage. OCI occupy the 2nd place in the structure of infectious diseases in children after acute respiratory infections, and such a structure has remained practically unchanged over the past decade. According to the state report on the state of sanitary and epidemic well-being of the population of the Russian Federation among children under 14 years old, 526,613 cases of acute intestinal infections, including shigellosis and salmonella, were recorded in 2017. In 2018, this indicator changed slightly and amounted to 518,959 cases. The high incidence rate is largely due to a wide range of pathogens, a variety of transmission routes, high susceptibility of the contingent, as well as the limited arsenal of specific prophylaxis.
