BACKGROUND beta-Lactoglobulin (BLG) represents one of the major allergens causing cow's milk allergy (CMA) - a disease with a wide spectrum of clinical symptoms. The aim of this study was to evaluate sequential B cell epitopes of BLG by the Pin-ELISA method. Furthermore, we wanted to investigate a possible association of the IgE recognition patterns in sera of patients with BLG sensitization and the type of clinical reactions following contact with cow's milk. METHODS Overlapping sequential… CONTINUE READING
