Purpose: To demonstrate the tear IgE (measured/exuded) ratio (R) as a useful biological marker of ocular allergy in order to distinguish severe from less severe inflammatory status. Methods: Tear samples and sera from 78 ocular allergy patients and 19 control subjects were analyzed. Total IgE and albumin were measured for calculating the tear IgE-R defining two subgroups (SG) of samples: R ≥ 4-SG and R < 4-SG. Eosinophil cationic protein, Th1 and Th2 cytokines (IFN-γ, IL-4, -5, -6, -8 and -10… CONTINUE READING
