SEAIC 2021 in Spain
We participated in Zaragoza at the 33rd National Congress of the Spanish Society of Allergology and Clinical Immunology. We are very proud that ALEX2® tests are already successfully used in Spain. Results were presented on 2 posters.
Congratulations to the authors for their nice poster and successful work!!!
As the posters are in Spanish, here a short description:
Measurement of molecular sensitisation to lipid transfer proteins using Allergy Explorer (ALEX2®)
In a cohort of 31 patients with symptoms (41% oral allergy syndrome, 28% urticaria, 25% anaphylaxis, 25% other symptoms) and positive skin tests for lipid transfer proteins (LTP), allergen sensitisation profiles were established using Allergy Explorer ALEX2®. In this study, patients showed good clinical correlation (history and prick test) with the results. A single diagnostic test with a panel of 290 allergens (120 allergen extracts and 170 molecular allergens). Pru p 3 and Mal d 2 were most commonly recognised by patients. In this study, the clinical manifestations correlated with the results of the ALEX2® test.
Sensitisation profiles of house dust mite allergic patients
In a cohort of 50 house dust mite allergic patients with clinical symptoms (98% rhinitis, 2% asthma, 52% rhinitis and asthma), a comprehensive sensitisation profile was established using Allergy Explorer ALEX2®. Sensitisation to Der p 1/Der p 2 and Der f 1/Der f 2 were measured most frequently (76%-86%). Interestingly, IgE reactivities against Der p 21, Der p 5 and Der p 23 were also detected in 50% of the allergic patients. A positive correlation between Der p 10, Der p 20 and Blo t 5 sensitisations was described.
Good luck for the future!
