Specific IgE food panels include the major food allergens known to be responsible for immediate type reactions and are grouped for adult, basic or comprehensive panels. Individual specific IgE foods can be ordered from the lab’s inventory of over different foods as needed. NORMAL ADULT LABORATORY VALUES: BLOOD, PLASMA, SERUM: Alanine aminotransferase (ALT, SGPT at 37°C) U/L ( µkat/L) Albumin, serum: g/dL ( g/L) Amylase, serum: U/L ( µkat/L) Aspartate aminotransferase (AST, SGOT at 37°C) U/L ( -2 to +3 kat/L) Bilirubin, serum (Adult) Total: .
Variations in the upper limit of normal total serum IgE have been reported: they can range from to 1, UI/ml; but the usually accepted upper limit is between and UI/ml. In this study we measured the total serum IgE levels (RIST-Pharmacia) in 69 randomly selected control subjects; 38 ha . Hyper IgE Syndrome (HIES) is a rare primary immunodeficiency disease characterized by eczema, recurrent staphylococcal skin abscesses, recurrent lung infections, eosinophilia (a high number of eosinophils in the blood) and high serum levels of IgE. Most cases of HIES are sporadic, but some familial cases of HIES have been reported, with either an autosomal .
Immunoglobulin E (IgE) is an antibody that is produced by the body’s immune system in response to a perceived threat. It is one of five classes of immunoglobulins (A, G, M, D, and E) and is normally present in the blood in very small amounts. This test measures the amount of IgE in the blood. Immunoglobulins are proteins that play a key role in the body's immune system. Total IgE levels are elevated during treatment and remain elevated for up to one year after the discontinuation of treatment. Therefore, re-testing of IgE levels during XOLAIR treatment cannot be used as a guide for dose determination. • Interruptions lasting less than one year: Dose based on serum IgE levels obtained at the initial dose.
