In this study, the binding of IgE to various shrimp allergens, additional to tropomyosin, was investigated using sera from 21 subjects who had clinical reactions to one or more shellfish species. Total shrimp-sIgE was quantified using ImmunoCAP, while allergen-sIgEs were quantified using immunoblotting and mass spectrometry, and immuno-PCR to recombinant shrimp tropomyosin.Sixty-two percent of subjects (13/21) were positive to shrimp by ImmunoCAP. IgE from 43% of subjects (9/21) bound tropomyosin, while an additional 29% of subjects (6/21) demonstrated IgE-binding solely to other shrimp allergens, including sarcoplasmic ca...

This article reviews preclinical and clinical evidence on the therapeutic potential of these new therapies. Among hypoallergenic derivatives, hybrid allergens showed a markedly reduced IgE reactivity in mouse models. Whether they will offer therapeutic benefit over extract, it is still not known since clinical trials have not been carried out yet. T cell epitope peptides have proven effective in small clinical trials. Major histocompatibility complex class II restriction was circumvented by using long overlapping or promiscuous T cell epitope peptides. However, the T cell –mediated late-phase adverse events have been...

Publication date: September 2019Source: Phytochemistry, Volume 165Author(s): Takahiro Okada, Hideyuki Ihara, Yoshitaka IkedaAbstractIn higher plants, asparagine-linked oligosaccharides (N-glycans) in glycoproteins carry unique carbohydrate epitopes, namely, a core α1,3-fucose and/or a β1,2-xylose, which are common determinants responsible for the cross-reactivity of plant glycoproteins due to their strong immunogenicity. While these determinants and the relevant genes have been well characterized for herbaceous plants, information concerning whether many food plants cross-react with airborne pollens is not avail...
