Immunoglobulin E (IgE) in patients with severe burns

Burns, Including Thermal Injury
V PolacekR Konigova


The concentrations of immunoglobulin E (IgE) were measured serially in 30 patients with severe burn injury. A characteristic finding was a rapid and dramatic increase of IgE in the serum of all patients, some of whom showed up to 20-fold increases. IgE was also found in considerable amounts in blister fluid and pleural effusions. In some patients raised IgE values were the only indicator of an anamnestic immediate allergic state. No correlation was found between the IgE levels and clinical characteristics of individual patients but significant changes seemed to be present only in patients with a burn covering more than 20 per cent of the body surface area.

Allergy and Asthma

Allergy and asthma are inflammatory disorders that are triggered by the activation of an allergen-specific regulatory t cell. These t cells become activated when allergens are recognized by allergen-presenting cells. Here is the latest research on allergy and asthma.
