IgE cross-reactivity between house dust mite allergens and Ascaris lumbricoides antigens
Background Common antigens between intestinal parasites and environmental allergens may play a role in the modulation of allergic immune responses. There is a growing interest in investigatingExpand
Mite Amylase from Blomia tropicalis (Blo t 4): Differential Allergenicity Linked to Geographical Regions
Background:Blomia tropicalis is an important domestic dust mite in the tropics and subtropics. This study describes cDNA cloning of the group 4 allergen of B. tropicalis, and the evaluation of theExpand
Allergen microarray detects high prevalence of asymptomatic IgE sensitizations to tropical pollen-derived carbohydrates.
sIgE < 0.35 1 of 18 (5.5) 2 of 18 (11.1) 4 of 19 (21.0) 13 of 17 (76.5) 14 of 17 (82.3) 2 of 9 (22.2) 2 of 9 (22.2) 6 of 9 (66.7) 3 of 9 (33.3) 7 of 9 (77.7) sIgE > 0.35 23 of 43 (53.5) 15 of 42Expand
cDNA Cloning and Expression of Blo t 11, the Blomia tropicalis Allergen Homologous to Paramyosin
Blomia tropicalis is an important mite species in many parts of the world and the most predominant mite species in tropical countries. The prevalence of sensitization to this species has probablyExpand
Immunoglobulin E-binding reactivities of natural pollen grain extracts from selected grass species in the Philippines
Background Pollen grains have been reported to be present in the Philippine atmosphere but studies regarding their allergenicity are limited. Objective The present study aimed to profile theExpand
Cytotoxicity and Apoptotic Activity of Ficus pseudopalma Blanco Leaf Extracts Against Human Prostate Cancer Cell Lines
Purpose: To investigate the cytotoxic and apoptotic activities of Ficus pseudopalma (FP) Blanco leaf extracts against normal human FSE cells and human prostate PRST2 cancer cell line. Methods: FPExpand
Comparative allergenicity studies of native and recombinant Blomia tropicalis Paramyosin 
(Blo t 11)
Background: The complementary DNA (cDNA) encoding for Blo t 11, a 102 kD allergen from Blomia tropicalis (Bt) was isolated, expressed and characterized previously. This study aimed to isolate theExpand
The -590C/TIL4 single-nucleotide polymorphism as a genetic factor of atopic allergy.
Elevated IgE levels in individuals with asthma, allergic rhinitis, and atopic dermatitis represents a situation in that increased IL4 production seems to occur because of the genetic component of theExpand
Production of monoclonal antibody by DNA immunization with electroporation.
DNA immunization with in vivo electroporation is an efficient alternative protocol for the production of monoclonal antibodies (mAb). Generation of mAb by DNA immunization is a novel approach toExpand
Lack of human IgE cross‐reactivity between mite allergens Blo t 1 and Der p 1
Background:  The group 1 mite allergens are the most significant indoor allergens and they belong to the papain‐like cysteine protease family. To date there is only one published report on theExpand
