The human dander atopy. I. The prototype of auto-atopy

Annals of Allergy
R Voorhorst


Human dander is shown to be a true allergen giving skin reactions most frequently in atopic patients. The clinical importance of human dander is discussed and data of a group of patients atopic only to human dander are given. It seems probable that human dander is an auto allergen and that there are many more auto allergens to which the atopic organism produces IgE-type antibodies.

Atopic Dermatitis

Atopic dermatitis is a chronic inflammatory genetically determined disease of the skin marked by increased ability to form reagin (IgE), with increased susceptibility to allergic rhinitis and asthma, and hereditary disposition to a lowered threshold for pruritus.

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.
