Snail Escargot Ige
Yes: Treatment of atopic disease, such as atopic dermatitis or asthma, can result in lowered IgE. The B-cells that make IgE depend on certain signals in the body to live and produce antibody. Time, changes in environmental/food/drug exposure, medicating specific diseases can all result in decreases in both total and specific IgE levels ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can Be...: Elevated total serum IgE is seen in mainly allergic diseases like allergic rhinitis and eczema. It is also seen in some primary immunodeficiencies, parasitic and viral infections, certain inflammatory diseases, and some malignancies.

No: Of the 5 types of antibodies, ige is the one involved in allergy triggering allergic rhinitis, asthma & food allergies. Cat allergy occurs when your immune system makes ige against cat proteins in cat hair or dander. Peanut allergy occurs when you make ige against peanut proteins. Cashew allergy requires ige to cashew. Each specific ige antibody defines an allergy to the substance it recognizes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Trick question: Are you studying immunology? The extra domain on ige indicates a unique role for the c2 domain in the interaction between ige and fcri. C2 reduces the off-rate of the ige/fcri, thereby resulting in a more stable complex. It is felt that the domain on igm co-contributes to the pentamic structure production. ...Read more

Are pseudoallergies to meds less dangerous than "true" IgE mediated allergies? Are they less likely to grow in severity over time?
Both can be severe: For a medication allergy, a true ige mediated one can be as severe as one not mediated by ige. Anaphylaxis vs. Anaphylactoid. Same severe symptoms, just not ige mediated. These non-ige reactions can be to: blood products, ace inhibitors for high blood pressure, aspirin, nsaids, narcotics, anti-convulsants, and others. The severity is difficult to predict---treatment is same: avoidance! ...Read more
