IgE Antibody Detection and Component Analysis in Patients with Eosinophilic Esophagitis.
BACKGROUND Although IgE antibodies to cow's milk and wheat are common in patients with eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE), titers are low and responses to diet are not dependent on having IgE antibodies.Expand

Specific IgG4 antibodies to cow's milk proteins in pediatric patients with eosinophilic esophagitis
Background: Allergen‐specific IgG4 (sIgG4) antibodies are often associated with tolerance, but sIgG4 antibodies to causally relevant foods have been reported recently in adults with eosinophilicExpand

Porcine or bovine valve replacement in 3 patients with IgE antibodies to the mammalian oligosaccharide galactose-alpha-1,3-galactose.
Patients who develop IgE to the oligosaccharide galactose-alpha1,3-galactose (alpha-gal) report delayed allergic reactions after eating beef, pork, or lamb. To date, there have been no publishedExpand

Underestimation of specific IgE measurements using extract-based assays on undiluted sera revealed through dilution.
The measurement of specific IgE (sIgE) to foods is an established clinical tool for the diagnosis and management of allergic disease. Normally, sIgE is measured using undiluted serum, and assays areExpand
