Inhibition of degranulation and interleukin-6 production in mast cells derived from mice deficient in protein kinase Cbeta. (1/35)

The antigen-mediated activation of mast cells by means of IgE antibodies bound to the cell surface leads to direct interactions between FcepsilonRI receptor cytoplasmic domains and various intracellular proteins. These interactions initiate diverse signal-transduction pathways, and the activation of these pathways results in the immediate release of proinflammatory agents. A delayed response also occurs and includes the release of various cytokines. It is clear that the activation of kinases is a requirement for the exocytosis observed in mast cells. In addition to the tyrosine phosphorylation of the affected system by soluble tyrosine kinases, activity of protein kinase C (PKC) results in serine or threonine phosphorylation of multiple protein substrates. In this study, we found that mast cells derived from PKCbeta-deficient mice produce less interleukin 6 in response to IgE-Ag. The inhibition of exocytosis in the PKCbeta-deficient mast cells occurred whether the stimuli were due to the aggregation of the mast cell surface FcepsilonRI or to the calcium ionophore, ionomycin. However, no significant changes were observed in the proliferative response of the mast cells to interleukin 3 (IL-3) or in their apoptotic rate after IL-3 depletion.

A novel human immunoglobulin Fc gamma Fc epsilon bifunctional fusion protein inhibits Fc epsilon RI-mediated degranulation. (2/35)

Human mast cells and basophils that express the high-affinity immunoglobulin E (IgE) receptor, Fc epsilon receptor 1 (Fc epsilon RI), have key roles in allergic diseases. Fc epsilon RI cross-linking stimulates the release of allergic mediators. Mast cells and basophils co-express Fc gamma RIIb, a low affinity receptor containing an immunoreceptor tyrosine-based inhibitory motif and whose co-aggregation with Fc epsilon RI can block Fc epsilon RI-mediated reactivity. Here we designed, expressed and tested the human basophil and mast-cell inhibitory function of a novel chimeric fusion protein, whose structure is gamma Hinge-CH gamma 2-CH gamma 3-15aa linker-CH epsilon 2-CH epsilon 3-CH epsilon 4. This Fc gamma Fc epsilon fusion protein was expressed as the predicted 140-kappa D dimer that reacted with anti-human epsilon- and gamma-chain specific antibodies. Fc gamma Fc epsilon bound to both human Fc epsilon RI and Fc gamma RII. It also showed dose- and time-dependent inhibition of antigen-driven IgE-mediated histamine release from fresh human basophils sensitized with IgE directed against NIP (4-hydroxy-3-iodo-5-nitrophenylacetyl). This was associated with altered Syk signaling. The fusion protein also showed increased inhibition of human anti-NP (4-hydroxy-3-nitrophenylacetyl) and anti-dansyl IgE-mediated passive cutaneous anaphylaxis in transgenic mice expressing human Fc epsilon RI alpha. Our results show that this chimeric protein is able to form complexes with both Fc epsilon RI and Fc gamma RII, and inhibit mast-cell and basophil function. This approach, using a Fc gamma Fc epsilon fusion protein to co-aggregate Fc epsilon RI with a receptor containing an immunoreceptor tyrosine-based inhibition motif, has therapeutic potential in IgE- and Fc epsilon RI-mediated diseases.  (+info)

Flow cytometry versus histamine release analysis of in vitro basophil degranulation in allergy to Hymenoptera venom. (4/35)

BACKGROUND: Flow cytometry (FCM) has been proposed for specific allergy in vitro testing. We investigated its biological significance for allergy to Hymenoptera venoms and compared it with the routinely performed basophil histamine release test (HRT). METHODS: Blood samples from 26 allergic and 8 nonallergic donors were incubated with venom at serial concentrations. Basophils were analyzed with anti-CD45-PE-Cyanin 5, Anti-IgE-FITC, and Anti-CD63-Phycoerythrine. HRT was measured by radioimmunoassay. RESULTS: FCM was as convenient as HRT for measuring basophil reactivity in at least 87% of allergic and 75% of nonallergic subjects. CD63 outer expression was specifically induced in 91% of releaser subjects (86% on HRT) and in 1 of 10 tests in nonallergic donors, or one of six tests (16% on HRT) in allergic patients tested with an irrelevant allergen. Both methods were concordant in 85.7% of the tests. The three discordant patients had low-grade reactions and borderline biological responses on FCM (n = 2) or HRT (n = 1). CONCLUSIONS: The dynamic, physiologic significance of CD63, the dose-response curve, and dependency on ethylene-diaminetetra acetic acid suggested that both tests reflect the same mechanism.  (+info)

Flow-assisted quantification of in vitro activated basophils in the diagnosis of wasp venom allergy and follow-up of wasp venom immunotherapy. (5/35)

BACKGROUND: Correct identification of the culprit venom is a prerequisite for specific venom immunotherapy (VIT). Despite the efficacy of VIT, issues as how to monitor treatment and when to discontinue maintenance therapy remain to be established. METHODS: To evaluate diagnostic performances of the basophil activation test (BAT) in wasp venom allergy, 80 patients with a definite history of wasp venom anaphylaxis (systemic reactors) and 14 wasp-stung asymptomatic controls (stung controls) were enrolled. Venom-induced basophil activation was analyzed flow cytometrically by double-labeling with anti-IgE and anti-CD63. Results were compared to wasp IgE levels and results of a venom skin test (VST). To establish whether the BAT constitutes a candidate marker to monitor VIT, the BAT was repeated in 22 patients on the 5th day of a build-up course and after 6 months of maintenance VIT. Whether the BAT could contribute in the decision of discontinuing VIT was assessed in a cross-sectional analysis in 30 patients receiving treatment for 3 years. RESULTS: Comparison between systemic reactors and stung controls revealed a sensitivity of 86.4% and specificity of 100% for venom IgE, and sensitivity of 81.8% for VST, respectively. In contrast to stung controls, patients demonstrated dose-dependent venom-induced basophil activation. The BAT attained a sensitivity of 83.8% and specificity of 100%. At the end of the build-up course, no effect of VIT on the BAT was demonstrable. When the BAT was repeated after 6 months of treatment, submaximal stimulation of the cells demonstrated a significant decreased CD63 expression (P < 0.04). Patients having VIT for 3 years also demonstrated significantly lower venom-induced CD63 expression (P < 0.001). After 3 years, 60% of the patients had a negative BAT for submaximal stimulation of the cells whereas only 17.9% of the patients had negativation of wasp IgE. CONCLUSIONS: The BAT is a reliable instrument for the diagnosis of wasp venom anaphylaxis and might constitute an instrument to monitor wasp VIT.  (+info)

Diclofenac induces basophil degranulation without increasing CD63 expression in sensitive patients. (6/35)

Diclofenac (Dc) induces an IgE-independent basophil (Ba) degranulation in susceptible individuals. CD63 Ba expression is utilized as an in vitro test for diagnosis of drug hypersensitivity. We tested the ability of Dc to induce CD63 Ba expression by flow cytometry (BAT) and Ba degranulation using light microscopy (HBDT) in patients sensitive to Dc. We studied 14 patients with diclofenac hypersensitivity, also two patients sensitive to Dermatophagoides pteronyssinus (Dp), and 12 normal controls. HBDT was performed by mononuclear cells toluidine blue staining. BAT determined CD63 expression in antiCD63/anti-IgE/anti-CD45-labelled whole blood. In each case, the percentage of activated Ba post-stimulation with 1 and 10 microg/ml Dc was determined. Positive controls included N-formyl-methionyl-leucyl-phenylalanine (fMLP) peptide-induced activation. IgE-mediated Ba activation was induced with a Dp allergenic extract. With Dc 1 microg/ml, mean HBDT in Dc-susceptible individuals was 33.62 +/- 18.35% and 8.49 +/- 4.79% in controls (P = 0.0001). Mean BAT was 2.04 +/- 1.68% and 1.93 +/- 1.40% in controls (P = 0.8). Ba preincubation with Dc did not affect fMLP-induced CD63 expression, neither in Dc-sensitive individuals (P = 0.8) (n = 4) nor in subjects without Dc hypersensitivity (P = 0.25) (n = 4). Ba from the two patients sensitive both to Dc and Dp responded to Dp but not to Dc by BAT: Dc, 1.99 +/- 0.78%; Dp: 60.87 +/- 9.28%; but showed degranulation by HBDT: Dc, 30.53 +/- 1.02%, Dp: 48.78 +/- 22.17%. Dc induces Ba degranulation in sensitive patients in a way that does not induce CD63 expression and is different from IgE-mediated and fMLP-mediated degranulation. Our results suggest that CD63 expression is not a reliable diagnostic method for diclofenac allergy.  (+info)

Hymenoptera venom allergy: taking the sting out of difficult cases. (7/35)

BACKGROUND: Correct identification of the culprit venom is a prerequisite for specific venom immunotherapy. OBJECTIVE: To assess whether the basophil activation test (BAT) constitutes an additional diagnostic instrument in patients with equivocal or negative specific immunoglobulin (Ig) E or venom skin test (VST) results. METHODS: One hundred eighteen patients with a compelling history of IgE-mediated hymenoptera venom allergy were enrolled. Venom-specific IgE was quantified by ImmunoCAP and VST was performed in all patients. Basophil activation was analyzed by flow cytometry after labeling with anti-IgE and anti-CD63. RESULTS: In 64 out of 118 patients, diagnosis was considered as definite and the entomologic description was confirmed by unequivocal and concordant positive specific IgE and VST results. In 53 of those 64 patients, BAT confirmed diagnosis, whereas the remaining 11 patients were nonresponsive in the BAT analysis. Forty-seven patients (40%) had a tentative diagnosis of venom allergy, as they had divergent specific IgE or VST results. In 31 of those patients, BAT was positive only for the suspected venom and helped to establish diagnosis of wasp and honeybee venom allergy in 28 and 3 patients, respectively. BAT was diagnostic in 7 patients with complete negative results for specific IgE and VST, despite clear entomologic identification. CONCLUSIONS: In about half the patients with diagnosis of venom allergy, unequivocal specific IgE and VST results are obtained and additional tests are not needed. In the remainder, diagnosis is less straightforward due to discrepant or negative specific IgE orVST results. In these patients, BAT constitutes a helpful additional instrument to identify the culprit venom and start venom immunotherapy accordingly.  (+info)

Chronic idiopathic urticaria: comparison of clinical features with positive autologous serum skin test. (8/35)

BACKGROUND: Chronic idiopathic urticaria (CIU), in its extremely severe form, can pose a therapeutic challenge to the treating physician. It has been noted that in one third of such patients, autoantibodies against the IgE receptor are seen and such patients have more severe and unremitting urticaria. AIM: To compare clinical features of autoimmune urticaria with those of other CIU patients. METHODS: We conducted a prospective study in an attempt to correlate the clinical features with autoantibodies, indirectly detected via the autologous serum skin test (ASST), which is the simplest and the best in vivo clinical test for detection of basophil histamine-releasing activity. DISCUSSION: Out of 100 patients with chronic idiopathic urticaria, 34 showed a positive reaction to the autologous serum skin test and it was found that the frequency and severity of attacks was higher in these patients. CONCLUSION: ASST may be used as a simple and cost-effective test for the classification of chronic urticaria, which has proven to be a therapeutic challenge to the treating physician.  (+info)

This is a case report of anaphylaxis in which the basophil activation test (BAT) was used to identify the etiological agent. Although skin tests are considered the most effective methods for identifying anaphylactic triggers, the test itself presents a risk of inducing anaphylaxis. The BAT is advantageous because of its inherent lack of risk, high sensitivity and specificity to identify the suspected anaphylactic agents, and diagnostic accuracy comparable to conventional skin testing. Therefore, in the future, the BAT is likely to become the preferred test for the detection of allergens over conventional skin tests. ...

RESUMEN. The basophil activation test (BAT) has become a pervasive test for allergic response through the development of flow cytometry, discovery of activation markers such as CD63 and unique markers identifying basophil granulocytes.. Basophil activation test measures basophil response to allergen cross-linking IgE on between 150 and 2000 basophil granulocytes in ,0.1 ml fresh blood. Dichotomous activation is assessed as the fraction of reacting basophils.. In addition to clinical history, skin prick test, and specific IgE determination, BAT can be a part of the diagnostic evaluation of patients with food-, insect venom-, and drug allergy and chronic urticaria. It may be helpful in determining the clinically relevant allergen.. Basophil sensitivity may be used to monitor patients on allergen immunotherapy, anti-IgE treatment or in the natural resolution of allergy. Basophil activation test may use fewer resources and be more reproducible than challenge testing. As it is less stressful for the ...
The basophil activation test (BAT), in which translocation of markers to the surface of blood basophils is measured in response to allergen by flow cytometry, is a rapid assay that is gaining popularity. Two markers are currently being evaluated for the BAT; CD63 and the lineage-specific CD203c. In a recent report, detection of CD203c after lysis with Saponin was shown to be superior to detection of CD63 after lysis with formic acid. We wanted to compare a) lysis with formic acid and lysis with Saponin, b) the response through CD203c and CD63, and c) the definition 10% activated cells above background with the probability binning metric T(χ) | 4, on sets of data generated with blood basophils stimulated with varying concentrations of anti-FcεRI antibody.

Sets of samples set up in parallel were lysed with either Saponin based Whole Blood Lysing reagent or
Immediate selective hypersensitivity reactions to pyrazolones are thought to be mediated by specific-IgE antibodies. The diagnosis of selective reactions to pyrazolones is mainly based on the clinical history, skin testing and/or drug provocation test (DPT). Skin testing has low sensitivity and has potential risk of eliciting an anaphylactic response as well as DPT. Therefore the use of in vitro tests could be a safe and straightforward approach, although till now no well-validated test is available. Basophil activation test (BAT) has been proposed as a new in vitro diagnostic tool for different drug reactions although its sensibility is not optimal. The aim of this study was to analyze the potential usefulness of dipyrone metabolites to improve BAT sensitivity. ...

Subcutaneous Immunotherapy (SCIT) modifies the allergic response and relieves allergic symptoms. SCIT is the only and a very effective treatment for insect venom allergy. We hypothesized that basophil sensitivity, measured through the basophil activation test, would decrease during SCIT up dosing. Expression of CD203c was compared to CD63 as marker for basophil activation, using a Bland Altman plot and ROC curves. Patients (n = 18) starting subcutaneous SCIT for wasp allergy with an up dosing scheme of 7 to 11 weeks were enrolled. Heparinised blood samples were drawn at weeks 1-4, 7 and at the first maintenance visit. Basophils were stimulated at 7 log dilutions of V. vespula allergen for 15 min, and were stained with CD203c and CD63. Basophils were identified as CD203c+ leukocytes, and the proportion of CD63+ and CD203c+ cells were plotted against allergen concentration. A sigmoid curve was fitted to the points, and the allergen concentration at which half of the maximal activation was achieved, LC50,

Allergic diseases affect approximately 30% of adults and has an impact on both the individuals quality of life as well as an economic impact on society. Two effector cells involved in allergic disease are mast cells and basophils, where basophils are more readily available in blood and therefore of great interest when studying allergy. Basophils can be recruited into the tissue during inflammation originating from for example allergic reactions or parasite infections. Allergy diagnostics starts with evaluation of the patients medical history followed by in vivo and/or in vitro testing. All diagnostic tests have different advantages and disadvantages are chosen depending on the patient and the circumstances. In vivo tests include the gold standard of allergy diagnostics, which is the challenge tests, but also the commonly used skin prick test (SPT). Allergy diagnostics can also be done in vitro using allergen-specific IgE antibody assays and the basophil activation test (BAT). BAT is useful to ...

Hypersensitivity reactions to betalactams (BLs) are classified as immediate or nonimmediate. The former usually appear within 1 h of drug-intake and are mediated by specific IgE-antibodies. Nonimmediate reactions are those occurring more than 1 h after drug-intake, and they can be T-cell mediated. The diagnostic evaluation of allergic reactions to BLs has changed over the last 5 years, for several reasons. Major and minor determinants are no longer commercially available for skin testing in many countries. In immediate allergic reactions, the sensitivity of skin testing and immunoassays is decreasing and new in vitro methods, such as the basophil activation test, are gaining importance for diagnosis. For nonimmediate reactions, skin testing appears to be less sensitive than previous results, although more studies need to be carried out in this direction. Nevertheless, the drug provocation test is still necessary for diagnosis. ...
Basophil activation in unfractionated samples such as whole blood can be measured by changes in the expression of cell surface markers or even intracellular events (e.g. phosphorylation, oxidative burst, calcium flux) by flow cytometry. Separate markers (e.g. as CD123+ HLA-DR-) are used to specifically identify basophils in addition to those used for assessment of activation. A feature of this protocol is to stimulate the basophils both in the presence and absence of autologous plasma. This protocol is specifically for a mouse allergen SCIT study conducted at JHU. ...

Introduction There is growing evidence that some cases of chronic idiopathic urticaria are associated with various autoimmune diseases such as thyroid autoimmunity. The association between chronic urticaria (CU) and thyroid disorders has been a subject of controversy. Some reports link CU with hyperthyroidism or hypothyroidism. The frequency of thyroid antibodies in patients with chronic idiopathic urticaria reported in 2009 was 30%, which is higher than that previously reported. Objective This is a case-control study that aimed to detect the presence of markers of thyroid autoimmunity (thyroid autoantibodies with or without underlying abnormal thyroid functions) among a cohort of autologous serum skin test (ASST)-positive patients with CU in comparison with ASST-negative CU patients as well as with healthy controls, and correlating it to the severity of urticaria symptoms. Patients and methods This study was carried out on 80 CU patients attending the Allergy and Immunology Clinic of Ain Shams ...

Basophils are a type of granulocyte named for their propensity for binding basic dyes. They also possess large granules filled with histadine, proteolytic enzymes, leukotrienes, and proteoglycans. Basophils help generate inflammatory reactions in response to IgE and can be recruited for allergic responses. Human basophils can often be phenotyped cells that express 2D7 antigen, CD123, CD203c, FceRIa (they do not express CD117). Mouse basophils can be identified by expression of CD200R3 and FceRIa. BioLegend develops and manufactures world-class, cutting-edge immunological reagents for biomedical research, offered at an outstanding value.

Clone FR3-16A11 recognizes CD203c, a glycosylated type II transmembrane molecule that belongs to the family of ecto-nucleotide pyrophosphatase/ phosphodiesterase (E-NPP3) enzymes. Among hematopoietic cells, expression of CD203c is restricted to basophils as well as to mast cells and their precursors, and has been described as specific for this lineage. Protein and/or mRNA expression of CD203c has also been found in solid tissues such as uterus or prostate. Basophils and mast cells are key producers of mediators that drive the onset of inflammatory responses, e.g., in allergy. Allergen challenge leads to a rapid up-regulation of activation markers such as CD203c or CD63. Due to its restricted expression pattern, CD203c is discussed as a specific marker to monitor the allergen-induced activation of basophils, e.g., in flow cytometric basophil activation tests of the peripheral blood. - Great Britain

The inhibitory myeloid immunoglobulin receptor CD300a (IRp60) has been shown to downregulate mast cell and eosinophil activities, thereby serving as a potential target for inhibiting allergic effector cell input in allergy. Our aims were to study the expression and functional properties of this receptor in purified human basophils, cells that crucially contribute to Th2-type immunity and allergy. Basophils homogeneously expressed CD300a as well as the inhibitory receptor CD200R on their cell surface, and these expressions increased after anti-IgE stimulation. IgE-mediated basophil degranulation was also significantly inhibited by crosslinking of either CD200R or CD300a (by 90% and 50%, respectively). Inhibitory SHIP-1 phosphorylations were also induced by CD200R and CD300a, although they were not noticeably increased by IgE-dependent activation. We conclude that both CD200R and CD300a play a role in reducing IgE-mediated basophil function and may crucially govern the known differential ...
Basophils are a rare granulocyte population that has been associated with allergic and inflammatory responses. It is essential to understand the regulatory mechanisms by which basophils are kept in check, considering the impact of dysregulated basophil function on immune responses under different pathological conditions. Among immunoregulatory cells, CD4+CD25+FoxP3+ regulatory T cells (Tregs) are the key players that maintain immune tolerance. The mechanisms by which Tregs regulate and suppress diverse immune cell subsets have been studied extensively, but the impact of Tregs on basophil functions is not well understood. We report that human basophils are refractory to Treg-mediated suppression and found that Tregs stimulate resting basophils to induce the expression of activation markers including CD69, CD203c, and CD13 and the release of basophil cytokines including IL-13, IL-8, and IL-4. Mechanistically, Tregs could induce human basophil activation via IL-3 and STAT5 activation, whereas ...

Ebastine, is a H1 antihistamine with low potential for causing drowsiness. It does not penetrate the blood-brain barrier to a significant amount and thus combines an effective block of the H1 receptor in peripheral tissue with a low incidence of central side effects, i.e. seldom causing sedation or drowsiness. After oral administration, ebastine undergoes extensive first-pass metabolism by hepatic cytochrome P450 3A4 into its active carboxylic acid metabolite, carebastine. This conversion is practically complete. Ebastine is a second-generation H1 receptor antagonist that is indicated mainly for allergic rhinitis and chronic idiopathic urticaria.
TY - JOUR. T1 - Cyclosporin A rapidly inhibits mediator release from human basophils presumably by interacting with cyclophilin. AU - Cirillo, Raffaele. AU - Triggiani, Massimo. AU - Siri, Lorenzo. AU - Ciccarelli, Anna. AU - Pettit, George. AU - Condorelli, Mario. AU - Marone, Gianni. PY - 1990. Y1 - 1990. N2 - We have examined the effects of cyclosporin A (CsA) and a series of CsA analogs that bind with decreasing affinity to cyclophilin, to evaluate the involvement of this protein in the release of preformed (histamine) and de novo synthesized (peptide leukotriene C4; LTC4) mediators of inflammatory reactions from human basophils. CsA (8 to 800 nM) concentration-dependently inhibited (5 to 60%) histamine release from peripheral blood basophils challenged with anti-IgE. CsA was more potent (92.6 ± 1.8 vs 59.1 ± 4.5%; p , 0.001) and, at low concentrations, more effective when the channel-operated influx of Ca2+ as bypassed by the ionophore A23187 (IC40 = 24.1 ± 3.9 vs 105.5 ± 22.2 nM; p , ...
