Component-resolved diagnosis with commercially available d. Pteronyssinus der p 1, der p 2, and der p 10: relevant markers for house dust mite allergy
Clinical & Experimental Allergy, 05/15/2012
Bronnert M et al. – Commercially available Der p 1 and Der p strongly correlate with IgE D. pteronyssinus. The lack of Der p 1 and Der p 2 IgE may help with differential diagnosis. Der p 10 serum IgE prevalence and levels suggest different patterns in food and mite–related tropomyosin sensitization. Serum IgE to carbohydrate MUXF3, although unexpectedly prevalent, were low and did not modify D. pteronyssinus IgE levels. Follow–up may be best carried out with individual rather than microarrayed components.
