In brief: IgE mediated
Allergic reactions that are type i are mediated by the allergic antibody ige.
That means they can be diagnosed using a skin or blood test for ige. They are immediate reactions with symptoms occurring within minutes to hours after exposure. Symptoms can be hives, swelling, anaphylaxis, asthma, etc.
