An allergen-specific immunoglobulin E (IgE) blood test is done to check whether a person is allergic to a particular substance.. An allergic reaction occurs when the immune system overreacts to something, often in the environment, thats harmless to most people. To protect the body from this perceived threat, or allergen, the immune system of an allergic person produces antibodies called immunoglobulin E.. IgE antibodies are found mostly in the lungs, skin, and mucous membranes. They cause mast cells (a type of cell involved in the bodys immune response) to release chemicals, including histamine, into the bloodstream. Its these chemicals that bring on many of the allergy symptoms that affect a persons eyes, nose, throat, lungs, skin, or gastrointestinal tract.. Because IgE antibodies are unique to each allergen (for example, IgE produced in response to pollen differs from IgE produced after a bee sting), checking for specific variants in the blood can help determine if an allergy is ...
In this study altered immune response as measured by total serum IgE level among symptomatic HIV infected patients, asymptomatic HIV positive individuals and healthy controls with and without helminths co-infection and the impact of deworming and/or ART on these immune activation was assessed within defined groups of population from tropical settings of Ethiopia where both HIV and helminths infections are common. Consistent with the earlier suggestions [25-27] that Africans generally present with elevated total serum IgE levels and our previous observations [14-16], patients in this study also showed a high total serum IgE level as shown by more than three-folds of the total IgE above the reference ranges irrespective of HIV and helminths co-infections. The highly significant correlation between helminth egg intensity and serum IgE level may partly explain the elevated total serum IgE levels observed in sub-Saharan regions, where heavy helminthic infections are widespread [14-16, 25-27]. It ...
Background: Dry eye disease (DED) is a multifactorial disease of the tears and ocular surface. No epidemiologic reports have yet been published about the relationship between DED and allergic rhinitis or sensitization to allergens. Objective: To investigate the association between DED and allergic conditions in the general adult Korean population. Methods: This population-based cross-sectional study included 17,542 individuals (ages ,= 19 years) who participated in the Korea National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (KNHANES) from 2010 to 2012. Data for total serum immunoglobulin E (IgE) and allergen-specific IgE levels were available for 1857 subjects. Data were analyzed by using logistic regression to determine the association of DED with allergy or allergic conditions, including allergic rhinitis, atopic dermatitis, asthma, increased total serum IgE, and sensitization to house-dust mite (Dermatophagoides farinae), dog, and cockroach allergens. Results: The prevalence of DED, allergic ...
Nitric oxide, a relatively stable free radical, is increased in exhaled air and plasma of people with asthma compared with that in healthy individuals, and is increasingly implicated in the pathogenesis of inflammation in asthma.8,25 Nitric oxide produced in the lungs is an important regulator of airway events, including modifying airway tone, regulating pulmonary vascular tone, stimulating mucin secretion, modulating mucociliary clearance through effects on ciliary beat frequency, and immune surveillance including tumoricidal and bactericidal effects.26 Studies of NOS in asthma have been focused on iNOS as iNOS was shown to be up regulated in patients with asthma and is believed to represent the major source of nitric oxide in the lungs.27 NOS2A (iNOS) has been identified as a calcium-independent isoform, which was detected in the brain, lungs, and liver of rats after endotoxin treatment.28 The transcriptional activation of iNOS in these cells is regulated by endogeneous mediators (such as ...

The development of allergic diseases seems to be associated with the composition of the gut microbial ecosystem. High counts of potential pathogens, such as clostridia, are associated with clinical manifestations of allergy and IgE antibody formation.
Background: Pediatric bronchial asthma is associated with considerable morbidity. The study was carried out to examine the association of Human Leukocyte Antigen (HLA)- Class II with the disease as we found no similar study on Asian Indian population. Objective: To define the HLA-Class II antigens in Asian Indian pediatric patients with asthma. Methods: A total of 103 children with asthma and 152 controls were analysed for HLA Class II (DRB1, DQB1and DPB1) by PCR-SSP (Sequence Specific Primers) method. Total serum IgE levels were determined by ELISA assay. Results: A positive family history was recorded in 59 patients (57%) and 13 (8.5%) of healthy controls. Serum IgE levels were more than normal range in 72% of the patients and 33% of healthy subjects with mean values of 4877 and 627 IU/ml, respectively. DRB1*04 and DQB1*03 showed significant positive relations while DRB1*15 showed a negative association with asthma. DQB1*02 was more common in healthy individuals but was not statistically significant.
It has been suggested that neutrophils may be involved in the late-phase reaction of immunoglobulin E (IgE)-dependent hypersensitivity states. However, the identity of neutrophil-associated molecules inducing the release of mediators remains unclear. In this report, we demonstrate that human neutrophils from normal donors or from patients with inflammatory disorders could bind myeloma IgE proteins, especially after desialylation. Northern blot, immunoprecipitation, and flow cytometry analyses revealed that neutrophils did not express Fc epsilon RII/CD23, but rather Mac-2/epsilon binding protein (BP), belonging to the S-type lectin family. Similarly to IgA used as positive control, myeloma IgE proteins, as well as polyclonal IgE antibodies with or without antibody specificity, were both capable of inducing a neutrophil respiratory burst. Anti-Mac-2 but not anti-CD23 mAb strongly decreased the IgE-dependent activation of neutrophils, induced either by the specific antigen or by anti-IgE ...
Selective suppression of IgE antibody response was demonstrated. Preadministration of DNP-coupled mycobacterium (DNP-Tbc) inhibited the formation of anti-DNP IgE antibody induced by DNP-OA without any suppressive effect on anti-DNP IgG antibody response. Secondary anti-DNP IgE antibody response by DNP-OA was also significantly depressed by the preadministration of DNP-Tbc. Anti-OA IgE antibody response induced by DNP-OA was also depressed by DNP-Tbc, whereas anti-OA IgE antibody response induced by PAB-OA was not affected by the preadministration of DNP-Tbc. Preimmunization with DNP-MGG induced much higher anti-DNP IgG antibody response than DNP-Tbc, but DNP-MGG did not suppress the induction of anti-DNP IgE antibody. The transfer of DNP-Tbc-primed spleen cells into normal mice depressed anti-DNP IgE antibody response. B cell-depleted cell populations also showed a comparable inhibitory effect to that of unfractionated DNP-Tbc primed cells. In the adoptive cell transfer experiment, ...
CCDs (cross-reactive carbohydrate determinants) are carbohydrate side chains inducing the production of specific IgE antibodies. A Type I allergy is caused by the formation of specific IgE antibodies against allergens. Most allergens are proteins. In eucaryotic organisms, many proteins are subjected to post-translational glycosylation and therefore carry carbohydrate side chains. Specific IgE antibodies are produced by the immune system against the real allergens but also against carbohydrate side chains of allergens (anti-CCD IgE) of plant origin, of insects, of molluscs and of latex. The anti-CCD IgE also leads to cross-reactions with unrelated proteins and therefore are called "cross-reactive carbohydrate determinants (CCD)".. CCDs do not cause allergic symptoms. Approximately 25 % of allergic patients produce anti-CCD IgEs, which, however, do not trigger allergic symptoms and therefore most likely have no clinical relevance. This low clinical significance was thought to be due to low binding ...
OBJECTIVE: The goal was to examine the relationship between age at the introduction of solid foods during the first year of life and allergic sensitization in 5-year-old children.. METHODS: We analyzed data from the Finnish Type 1 Diabetes Prediction and Prevention nutrition study, a prospective, birth cohort study. We studied 994 children with HLA-conferred susceptibility to type 1 diabetes mellitus for whom information on breastfeeding, age at the introduction of solid foods, and allergen-specific immunoglobulin E levels at 5 years was available. The association between age at the introduction of solid foods and allergic sensitization was analyzed by using logistic regression.. RESULTS: The median duration of exclusive breastfeeding was 1.8 months (range: 0-10 months). After adjustment for potential confounders, late introduction of potatoes (,4 months), oats (,5 months), rye (,7 months), wheat (,6 months), meat (,5.5 months), fish (,8.2 months), and eggs (,10.5 months) was significantly ...
Allergic asthma is characterized by airway hyperresponsiveness to specific and non-specific stimuli with elevated serum IgE levels and eosinophilic inflammation. It is well known that allergen-specific CD4 + type 2, T-helper (Th2) cells and immunoglobulin E (IgE)-sensitized mast cells are key players in the allergic response. Therefore, therapeutic strategies that induce regulatory T cells (Tregs) to suppress Th2-cell responses and inhibit IgE-mediated activation on mast cells seem to have the greatest potential to efficiently inhibit allergen-induced disorders. Short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs) have anti-inflammatory and immuno-suppressive properties and are considered especially good candidates for the role. Actually, our preliminary results showed that SCFA-phenylbutyrate (PB) induced tolerogenic dendritic cells, enhanced the generation of splenic Foxp3 + Tregs and inhibited mast cell degranulation. PB also expressed a preventive effect in an ovalbumin-induced asthmatic animal model. Therefore, ...
RESULTS. The median patient age was 8.2 years (range, 5.7-11.3 years), and the median 1-second forced expiratory volume was 95% of the predicted value. The median absolute eosinophil count in the peripheral blood was 0.48 x 109 /L and the ratio of total serum immunoglobulin E to the age-adjusted upper limit of the normal range was 2.7. Atopy, as defined by at least one positive response to skin prick testing, was found in 170 (83.3%) of the 204 patients. House dust mites were the most commonly sensitised aero-allergen (n=167; 81.9%). Sensitisation to food allergens was found in 47 (23.0%) of the patients. The self-reported frequency of asthmatic attacks was associated with a positive response to skin prick testing with animal allergens (P for trend = 0.001), whereas spirometric indices correlated with the degree of atopy and the presence of in vivo cockroach-specific immunoglobulin E ...

IFN- is definitely a pivotal cytokine in ameliorating the Th2 response and actions aimed at selective up-regulation of this cytokine may be of restorative value in suppression of undesirable IgE reactions. < 005 was taken to indicate statistical significance. RESULTS Exogenous type-1 cytokines suppress IgE production in HgCl2-treated BN rats HgCl2 treatment of BN rats resulted in designated elevation of serum IgE concentrations, as previously reported [7]. IgE levels were barely above normal at day time 7, then rose rapidly to maximum levels by day time 14.

IgE levels at day time 14 were ...
The property of 109 CD4+ T cell clones (TCC) to induce IgE synthesis in vitro in human B cells was compared with their ability to produce IL-2, IL-4, and IFN-gamma in their supernatants (SUP) after 24-h stimulation with PHA. A significant positive correlation was found between the property of TCC to induce or enhance spontaneous IgE synthesis and their ability to release IL-4. In contrast, there was an inverse relationship between the IgE helper activity of TCC and their ability to release IFN-gamma, whereas no statistical correlation between the property to induce IgE synthesis and to produce IL-2 was observed. The ability of PHA-SUP from 71 CD4+ TCC to induce IgE synthesis in B cells was also investigated. Twenty-nine SUP (all derived from TCC active on IgE synthesis) induced production of substantial amounts of IgE in target B cells. There was a correlation between the amount of IgE synthesized by B cells in response to these SUP and their IL-4 content. An even higher correlation was found ...

Atopic diseases like asthma, atopic dermatitis and allergic rhinitis are complex traits of multifactorial origin. This study aimed to reveal gene-gene- and gene-environmental interactions of eight polymorphisms in five candidate genes. We examined whether 6 genetic variants of the genes coding for Interleukin-4 (IL-4), Interleukin-13 (IL-13) and their common receptor unit IL4R-alpha had genotypic effects on atopy-related traits such as total serum IgE levels in a large German birth cohort study (Multicenter Atopy Study, MAS 90) with longitudinally well defined phenotypes. Two single nucelotide polymorphisms (SNP) in the IL-13 gene (Arg130Gln, C-1055T) showed a significant association with increased serum IgE levels over the whole period of seven years. In addition, exposure to maternal smoking appears to modify the above effects on total serum IgE levels. We tested the association of atopy-related traits and a SNP of the complement factor 5 receptor (-245T) in the MAS cohort and in an ...
The effect of rat immunoglobulins and immune complexes on the locomotor function of rat polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMN) was investigated in vitro. Rat immunoglobulin G1 (IgG1), IgG2a, IgG2b, and IgA monoclonal antibodies specific for the dinitrophenyl hapten were used. Both monomeric and polymeric IgA showed chemotactic activity in a dose-dependent manner. IgG1 and IgG2b also induced a dose-dependent locomotor response of PMN, but the nature of the induced migration was chemokinetic (enhancing random migration). IgG2a was chemotactic and induced maximal migration at a relatively low concentration. IgG1- and IgG2b-immune complexes induced stronger migration than antibody alone; however, IgA- and IgG2a-immune complexes did not. IgA was shown to modify the chemotactic movement of PMN induced by N-formylmethionyl-leucyl-phenylalanine (FMLP). In the presence of both IgA and FMLP in the lower chamber, the migration towards suboptimal concentrations of FMLP was enhanced. By contrast, IgA in the ...
Crystallographic and solution studies have shown that IgE molecules are acutely bent in their Fc region. cross-linking by allergen leads to cell degranulation, release of inflammatory mediators and an immediate allergic response. Disruption of the IgE-FcRI conversation is usually a validated strategy for therapeutic intervention in allergic diseases including asthma: an anti-IgE monoclonal IgG antibody, omalizumab (Xolair?, Novartis Pharmaceuticals Ltd), inhibits IgE binding to FcRI and is effective in the Tarafenacin treatment of severe persistent asthma and other allergic diseases2. IgE consists of a dimer of two identical heavy and two identical light chains, but unlike IgG in which the antigen-binding Fab region is separated from the receptor-binding Fc region by a flexible hinge, IgE contains an additional disulphide-linked pair of domains, (C2)2, forming a (C2-C3-C4)2 dimer1. Fluorescence depolarisation studies to assess segmental flexibility have shown IgE to be less flexible than IgG3-6, ...

Allergic asthma may be associated with elevated IgE levels. Treatment for allergic asthma may include anti-IgE medications in addition to inhalers.
The main normal function of IgE (Immunoglobulin E) is believed to be in the protection against parasitic infestation. However, IgE is also associated with allergy and allergen-specific IgE antibodies may trigger allergic reactions in the presence of the proper allergen. IgE is normally found in low amounts in serum/plasma but is significantly increased in allergic individuals and the detection of allergen-specific IgE serves as the basis for many in vitro assays for specific diagnosis of allergy.. ...
COMMON DYSREGULATION AMONG ALLERGIC CONDITIONS. Allergic asthma, allergic rhinitis and atopic dermatitis are prevalent allergic diseases. These diseases can be distinguished by the location of their most important symptoms; lungs, sinuses and skin respectively.. They also share many characteristics, including the same underlying immune system dysregulation as evidenced by inappropriate T-cell mediated responses to innocuous antigens, peripheral eosinophilia, elevated serum IgE levels, chronic immune system activation, and over-production of inflammatory mediators, including leukotrienes, cytokines and chemokines.. LEUKOTRIENES AND INFLAMMATION IN ALLERGIC DISEASES. Leukotrienes are eicosanoid lipid mediators and are derived from the essential fatty acid arachidonic acid (AA), which is concentrated in the membrane phospholipids of cells of the immune system. The role of inflammatory mediators (leukotrienes) in allergic diseases is well characterized. In particular, leukotrienes play a significant ...
Anti-IgE antibodies react with the IgE isotype of human immunoglobulins. IgE is the shortest-lived immunoglobulin with a half-life of two days in serum. IgE plays an important role in allergy. It is especially associated with type 1 hypersensitivity, where IgE shows high-affinity binding to Fc receptors expressed on the surface of mast cells. Antigen binding to Fc receptor-bound IgE upon re-exposure to specific allergens results in degranulation and the release of a variety of mediators, such as histamine and cytokines. IgE has two main receptors: the high-affinity receptor FcεRI, which is expressed only on mast cells and basophils, and the low-affinity receptor FcεRII (CD23), which is expressed on B cells. - Belgique
Back in the Dark Ages, allergic people were probably much more likely to fight off intestinal parasites, viral and bacterial infections and even scourges like the Black Death. Up to 100 years ago, in fact, carrying genes that elicited a high IgE (Immunoglobulin E) response, was probably a distinct evolutionary advantage, something that kept the carriers of these genes more apt to survive to reproduce.. In our modern times, though, "atopic" individuals (those prone to allergies) find themselves fighting their own bodies or other otherwise harmless substances like peanuts, eggs, milk, nuts, fish, animal dander, dust, mould, grasses, pollens. Simple things can sometimes kill an allergic person. Those prone to allergies are often depicted as weak, mouth-breathing, nerdy, canary types whom others delight in kicking sand in their faces.. I come from a long line of allergic types. My grandfather on my fathers side died of an asthma attack in 1926. My father is anaphylactic to flat fish. My sister is ...
Background: To investigate the associations between clinical obstetric factors during birth and doctor-diagnosed wheezing and allergic sensitization during early childhood.. Methods: We followed 410 Finnish women from late pregnancy until 18 months age of their children. All children were delivered at term. Doctor-diagnosed wheezing among children was established by questionnaires, while specific immunoglobulin E antibodies to inhalant and food allergens were measured in 388 children at 1 year of age. Data on maternal obstetric variables were recorded at the time of delivery.. Results: Children of mothers with longer duration of ruptured fetal membranes before birth had significantly higher risk of doctor-diagnosed wheezing during early childhood compared to those children with shorter period of ruptured fetal membranes (III vs I quartile; aOR 6.65, 95% CI 1.99-22.18; P , 0.002 and IV vs I quartile; aOR 3.88, 95% CI 1.05-14.36, P , 0.043).

The immunoglobulin E (IgE) blood test is often done as part of an initial screen for allergies. High IgE levels also may indicate a parasitic infection.
Genetic polymorphisms of IL-18 and its receptor were reported to be associated with elevated serum IgE levels, atopy, and/or asthma. However, conflicting results were observed in various association studies and functional activity of these polymorphisms remains unclear. A total of 393 unrelated subjects were involved in this study. Direct PCR-sequencing method was used to screen novel polymorphisms. The functional significance of these polymorphisms was investigated using reporter gene assay. Three known (-137, +113, and +127) polymorphisms in the IL-18 promoter were identified with a perfect linkage disequilibrium (Δ = 1, p , 0.001) among them. No significant difference in the genotype frequencies of these polymorphisms between atopy and atopic phenotypes in Singaporean Chinese, Malays, and Indians was observed. However, transcriptional activities were significantly increased in HepG2 cultured cells with wild-type IL-18 genotype (-137/G, +113/T, and +127/C) than mutated genotype (-137/C, ...
Why the immune system mounts an attack against seemingly harmless agents baffles researchers. Because the immune system treats the harmless agent as a threat, B lymphocytes produce immunoglobulin E antibody (IgE). IgE attaches to mast cells such as those present in the nasal and bronchial passages, resulting in histamine release. Inflammation and allergy symptoms follow. Once sensitized, mast cells automatically release histamine when the invading agent reappears. Because IgE can sensitize cells anywhere in the body, individuals symptoms vary (eg, a cat may produce hives in one person and generate sneezing in another person).9,11 Allergy should not be confused with atopy. Atopy indicates that a person has developed a symptomless sensitization. The Increase in Allergies A genetic susceptibility to allergens has been established, but a shift in the human gene pool is an unlikely explanation for the increased prevalence of allergies. Shifts in population-based traits require several generations to ...
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the role of two major allergic pathways - IgE and non-IgE antibody mediated food allergy reaction (FAR) and lung inflammation disease using crustacean extracts. Although IgE antibody mediated food allergy reaction (IFAR) are defined as major mechanism in the past several decades, proteases from different sources acting similar to allergens as well as the long-term inflammatory stimulus through activation of protease activation receptors (PARs) are important. This opens new insight into non-IgE antibody mediated food allergy (NFAR) due to its dual effects. Therefore, it is necessary to investigate the interactions of these two pathways for a better understanding of the currently poor correlation between clinical symptoms and IgE specific diagnostics.. The current studies employed a humanized rat basophilic leukemia (RBL) cell line as well as a human lung epithelial cell line (A549) due to the presence of IgE receptors and PARs. Flow cytometric (FACS) and ...
Allergies, also known as allergic diseases, are a number of conditions caused by hypersensitivity of the immune system to something in the environment that usually causes little or no problem in most people. These diseases include hay fever, food allergies, atopic dermatitis, allergic asthma, and anaphylaxis. Symptoms may include red eyes, an itchy rash, sneezing, a runny nose, shortness of breath, or swelling. Food intolerances and food poisoning are separate conditions.. Common allergens include pollen and certain food. Metals and other substances may also cause problems. Food, insect stings, and medications are common causes of severe reactions. Their development is due to both genetic and environmental factors. The underlying mechanism involves immunoglobulin E antibodies (IgE), part of the bodys immune system, binding to an allergen and then to a receptor on mast cells or basophils where it triggers the release of inflammatory chemicals such as histamine. Diagnosis is typically based on a ...
When food proteins are injected in to the blood stream, a type I hypersensitivity reaction against an allergen, encountered for the first time, causes a response in a type of immune cell called a TH2 lymphocyte, which belongs to a subset of T cells that produce a cytokine called interleukin-4 (IL-4). These TH2 cells interact with other lymphocytes called B cells, whose role is the production of antibodies. Coupled with signals provided by IL-4, this interaction stimulates the B cell to begin production of a large amount of a particular type of antibody known as IgE that are specific to the food proteins. Secreted IgE circulates in the blood and binds to an IgE-specific receptor (a kind of Fc receptor called FcεRI) on the surface of other kinds of immune cells called mast cells and basophils, which are both involved in the acute inflammatory response. The IgE-coated cells, at this stage are sensitized to the allergen (food proteins). [1] [2] ...

Background: TH17 cells participate in the pathogenesis of autoimmune and inflammatory diseases, such as asthma. Recently, our group identified associations of asthma and total serum IgE levels with single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in TH17 pathway genes. We now investigated functional effects of these SNPs on gene expression within the TH17 pathway in vitro.. Methods: TH17 pathway SNPs were genotyped (23 by MALDI-TOF MS; 2 by RFLP) in a randomly selected cohort (n=57, German adults). Expression of ten signature TH17 pathway genes was measured by quantitative real-time PCR in peripheral blood mononuclear cells, stimulated with phytohemagglutinin, D. pteronyssinus, lipid A, or peptidoglycan. Induction of mRNA levels was compared between unstimulated and stimulated cells applying the delta-delta Ct method and correlated with genotypes. Measurements of TH17 pathway cytokines were performed.. Results: The RORyt SNP rs6693413, with minor allele frequency (MAF) 0.48, displayed allele-specific ...
Human IgE (Immunoglobulin E) is expressed on the surface of mature B cells. It is the least abundant Ig in the serum and does not activate complement.
Recombinant mouse Interleukin-4 (rMu IL-4) is a potent lymphoid cell growth factor, which stimulates the growth and survivability of certain B cells and T cells. Produced by mast cells, T cells and bone marrow stromal cells, IL-4 regulates the differentiation of naive CD4+ T cells into helper Th2 cells, characterized by their cytokine-secretion profile that includes secretion of IL-4, IL-5, IL-6, IL-10, and IL-13, which favor a humoral immune response. Another dominant function of IL-4 is the regulation of immunoglobulin class switching to the IgG1 and IgE isotypes. Excessive IL-4 production by Th2 cells has been associated with elevated IgE production and allergy. Recombinant mouse IL-4 is a 13.5 kDa globular protein containing 120 amino acid residues ...
