We investigated the possibility that subjects with IgE antibodies to an inhalant insect allergen, such as caddis fly, might also have antibodies to cross-reacting carbohydrate determinants (CCDs). IgE antibodies to cross-reacting allergens in caddis flies, mussels, oysters, shrimps, crabs, honeybee, and yellow jacket venoms were determined by RAST, RAST inhibition, and immunoblot studies with sera from three different sources: (1) sera of patients with well-defined inhalant atopy to caddis fly… CONTINUE READING
