Release of esoinophil cationic protein (ECP) in anaphylactoid anaesthetic reactionsin vivo andin vitro

Abstract

In patients with anaphylactoid reactions (AR) to neuromuscular blocking drugs (NMB), eosinophil cationic protein (ECP) was released bothin vivo andin vitro, and in IgE-dependent and IgE-independent reactions. Thus, eosinophils may play a role in both types of reactions, and ECP release tests may be of value in the diagnosis and study of the mechanism of AR.
