Enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) for IgG and IgE antibodies to protein and polysaccharide antigens of Aspergillus fumigatus
ELISA has emerged as a useful alternative to other more costly and complex tests. Polystyrene microhaemagglutination plates have been used as solid phase to absorb Aspergillus fumigatus protein andExpand

Measurement of airborne mite antigen in homes of asthmatic children
The airborne concentration of major house dust mite antigen Der p1 was measured by low volume sampling (2 litres/min) in the homes of 68 allergic, asthmatic children. The presence of detectableExpand

Allergic reactions of the lungs to enzymes of Bacillus subtilis.
Abstract Allergic sensitivity produced by the inhalation of high concentrations of enzyme preparations from Bacillus subtilis was found in three workers with mainly bronchial disease. They gaveExpand

Airborne allergens associated with asthma: particle sizes carrying dust mite and rat allergens measured with a cascade impactor.
Patients with asthma may develop acute symptoms after exposure to domestic or laboratory animal allergens; however, they are usually not aware of a direct relationship between their acute attacks andExpand

Immunological aspects of respiratory allergy in budgerigar (Melopsittacus undulatus) fanciers
Precipitins against budgerigar serum proteins were not found in subjects without budgerigars or in healthy budgerigar fanciers. In budgerigar fanciers with respiratory disease, precipitins were foundExpand

Precipitating antibodies to aspergillus fumigatus in cystic fibrosis.
Abstract 31% of 112 patients with cystic fibrosis had precipitating antibody to Aspergillus fumigatus in the serum as against 7% of 60 asthmatics and 3% of 75 patients with non-respiratory disease.Expand

The influence of exposure to house dust mite, cat, pollen and fungal allergens in the home on primary sensitisation in asthma
The homes of 68 atopic asthmatic children were studied to estimate the concentrations of perennial and seasonal aeroallergens (Der pl, Fel d1, grass pollen, tree pollen, Cladosporium, AspergillaceaeExpand

Occupational asthma and rhinitis related to laboratory rats: serum IgG and IgE antibodies to the rat urinary allergen.
Allergic reactions to rat urinary proteins are an important cause of occupational asthma and rhinitis among laboratory workers. We have measured IgG and IgE antibodies to a purified rat urinaryExpand
