... persons, the presence of the allergen leads to the release of various substances (mediators) from immune cells in the blood. These mediators, e.g. histamine or leukotriene, cause an abrupt drop in blood pressure, lowering of body temperature, arrhythmia, respiratory distress, and acute reactions in ...

Lab test for allergy scoops national

... the cells causing the symptoms of allergy. Cellular activation can then be analysed to discover which of the allergens are prompting the release of histamine and other chemicals indicative of allergic reaction in the patient's blood. Dr Marcos Alcocer, a lecturer in the School of Biosciences, said: "The ...

Study helps explain how allergic reactions are triggered

... of Pathology at BIDMC and Instructor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School. Mast cells store inflammatory cytokines and compounds [including histamine and heparin] in sacs called granules, she explains. When the mast cells encounter an allergen pollen, for example they degranuate, releasing their ...

New test could help consumers avoid surprise headaches from chocolate, wine

... of light produced by the sample upon exposure to a laser beam.

Czernuszewicz's research is focused on the roles of salivary nitrophorins in storing and releasing NO and binding histamine by using resonance Raman spectroscopic techniques as a probe of molecular structure. # Yuriy Fofanov, assistant professor of computer science and ...

Novel Therapy Tested in Mice Could Chase Away Cat Allergies

... a control. Then they added the cat protein that triggers allergic reactions to all the blood cell cultures. “We measured more than 90 percent less histamine in the cultures with GFD,?says Dr. Saxon. “Those results suggested that GFD successfully prevented the immune cells from reacting to cat allergen. ...
