  1. 1. Contact allergens in p-tert-butylphenol-formaldehyde resin

    University dissertation from Department of Occupational and Environmental Dermatolog, Deparment of Dermatology, Malmö University Hospital

    Author : Erik Zimerson; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Dermatology; main allergens; structure-activity relationships; identification of contact allergens; guinea pig maximization test; p-tert-butylphenol-formaldehyde resin; patch testing; venereology; Dermatologi; venereologi;

    Abstract : p-tert-Butylphenol-formaldehyde resin (PTBP-F-R) is used as a binder in many adhesive formulations and it consists of a complex mixture of substances, most of which are unknown. The resin has been reported to cause allergic contact dermatitis since the 1950s. READ MORE

  2. 2. Novel Computational Analyses of Allergens for Improved Allergenicity Risk Assessment and Characterization of IgE Reactivity Relationships

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Daniel Soeria-Atmadja; Uppsala universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; allergens; bioinformatics; statistical learning; performance estimation; risk assessment; MEDICINE Physiology and pharmacology Physiology Medical informatics; MEDICIN Fysiologi och farmakologi Fysiologi Medicinsk informatik;

    Abstract : Immunoglobulin E (IgE) mediated allergy is a major and seemingly increasing health problem in the Western countries. The combined usage of databases of molecular and clinical information on allergens (allergenic proteins) as well as new experimental platforms capable of generating huge amounts of allergy-related data from a single blood test holds great potential to enhance our knowledge of this complex disease.

  4. 4. Clinical and experimental studies on oxidized fragrance terpenes as contact allergens

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Environmental Science and Analytical Chemistry, Stockholm University

    Author : Johanna Bråred Christensson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; autoxidation; contact allergy; limonene; linalool; colophonium; limonene-1-hydroperoxide; limonene-2-hydroperoxide; 15-hydroperoxyabietic acid; 15-HPA; terpenes; local lymph node assay; LLNA; Freunds complete adjuvant test; FCAT; patch testing; laser Doppler imaging; skin irritation; visual reading;

    Abstract : The work presented in this thesis aims to improve the possibilities for diagnosing contact allergy to oxidized limonene and linalool and to, in patients, study contact allergy from structurally closely related hydroperoxides with regard to their specificity, potency and cross-reactivity. The fragrance terpenes limonene (from citrus oil) and linalool (from lavender oil) are widely used in household and industrial products. READ MORE

  5. 5. Allergy to laboratory animals : Risk factors for development of allergy and methods for measuring airborne rodent allergens

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, false

    Author : Anne Renström; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [1997]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; laboratory animal allergy; atopy; IgE; methacholine provocation; aeroallergen measurement; ELISA; monoclonal antibody; Mus m 1; Rat n 1;

    Abstract : Between 10-50% of workers exposed to laboratory animals, mainly rats or mice, develop laboratory animal allergy (LAA) with symptoms of rhinitis, conjuctivitis, asthma, or urticaria, and IgE against animal allergens. Symptoms often arise within the first years of animal work. Up to half of the symptomatic subjects develop asthma. READ MORE
