Dilution experiments were performed during two transects across the central equatorial Pacific (3”N-3”S, 14O”W) to estimate growth and mortality rates of select phytoplankton groups distinguished by their characteristic pigments. The first transect was conducted in February-March 1992 during a moderate El Nina event; the second transect took place in(More)
In the last years, latex has frequently been found to be involved in immediate hypersensitivity reactions. The first case mentioned with recurrent urticaria and laryngoedema was reported by Stern (1) in 1927. Since then, latex has also been implicated in generalized urticaria, rhinoconjunctivitis, asthma and anaphylaxis. Associated sensitization to several(More)
Hyper-IgE syndrome is basically characterized by recurrent infections, chronic eczematous lesions, specific IgE antibodies against Staphylococcus aureus and markedly high serum IgE values. We present the case of an 11-year-boy with no relevant personal or family history, who came to our Department with highly pruriginous papulovesicular skin lesions of 3(More)
For this study, venous blood from 160 patients with a diagnosis of asthma and/or rhinitis was used. Histamine release test (H.R.T.) with anti-IgE at 1/5 and 1/25 dilutions and with causal antigen in the case of atopic patients (144) was carried out on all patients. Basophils from atopic patients released more histamine than those from nonatopic patients (p(More)
Many authors have described an increase in total serum IgE values during the first few months of immunotherapy (IT), followed by a subsequent decrease. In previous studies in patients undergoing medium-term IT, we detected an IgE synthesis suppressor factor (SF), which was modified during the course of IT. In this study, we investigated the influence of(More)
