A VALIDATION STUDY OF THE IMPROVED PRODUCT FOR MEASURING JAPANESE CYPRESS POLLEN-SPECIFIC IgE (THERMO SCIENTIFIC ™ ImmunoCAP™ ImmunoCAP JAPANESE CYPRESS POLLEN-SPECIFIC IgE).

CONCLUSIONS: An improvement of the ImmunoCAP-specific IgE reagent Japanese cypress pollen resulted in enhanced Japanese cypress pollen-specific IgE sensitivity. The primary reason for this appeared to be an improved Cha o 1- and Cha o 2-specific IgE detectability. PMID: 29459528 [PubMed - in process]

The number of metachromatic cells in nasal swabs in untreated subjects (B) and SCIT (C) for Japanese cedar pollinosis in pre ‐season and in season. AbstractBackground and objectiveNasal symptoms of allergic rhinitis can be reduced with allergen ‐specific subcutaneous immunotherapy (SCIT). However, the mechanisms underlying the effectiveness of SCIT for Japanese cedar pollinosis are not well understood. We studied changes in the numbers of metachromatic cells, eosinophils and neutrophils in nasal swabs following SCIT for Japanese cedar po llinosis.MethodsSubjects were either untreated or given SCIT for 0.5 to 13 years d...

Conclusions: IDA significantly increases autoimmune disease risk, particularly in female patients and patients with certain comorbidities. Clinicians should conduct further clinical evaluations and laboratory tests of autoimmune disease in patients with IDA.Plain Language Summary: Little is known about the relationship between iron deficiency and autoimmune disease. By using a national-level database in Taiwan, we noted a meaningful association between iron deficiency anemia (IDA) and later autoimmune disease development. Our study extends the known disease range and recommends that physicians be alert for the occurrence o...
