  1. 1. More or Less IgE : Therapeutic Vaccines, Adjuvants and Genes and Their Effect on IgE Levels

    Author : Anna Ledin; Lars Hellman; Kjell-Olov Grönvik; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Cell and molecular biology; IgE; Immunoglobulin; Atopic allergy; Vaccine; Adjuvant; Dog; Cell- och molekylärbiologi; Cell and molecular biology; Cell- och molekylärbiologi;

    Abstract : Immunoglobulin E (IgE) is an important mediator in atopic allergies. This thesis describes the development of a therapeutic vaccine against IgE and its effects in rats and dogs. The development of an assay to determine IgE levels in dogs, and the finding of a chromosome region in rats that affects IgE levels are also reported. READ MORE

    Abstract : Immunoglobulin E (IgE) occurs exclusively in mammals and is one of five immunoglobulin (Ig) classes found in man. Unlike other isotypes, IgE is best known for its pathological effects, whereas its physiological role remains somewhat elusive. READ MORE

  5. 5. IgE sensitization against food allergens : Natural history, relation to airway inflammation and asthma

    Author : Antonios Patelis; Andrei Malinovschi; Eva Rönmark; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; allergen components; extract-based; exhaled NO; airway hyperresponsiveness; blood eosinophil count; IgE sensitization; food hypersensitivity; food allergens; perennial allergens; natural history; markers of systemic inflammation; markers of local inflammation; Lungmedicin; Lung Medicine; Fysiologi; Physiology; Immunologi; Immunology;

    Abstract : Background: According to recent studies in children, IgE sensitization not only against perennial allergens, but also against food allergens, is related to asthma risk and increased airway inflammation. During the last decade, a new technique for IgE determination based on allergen components has become available, but its use in epidemiological studies has been limited. READ MORE
