Project lead: Dr. Zsolt Szépfalusi
Project topic: IgE sensitisation profiles of school-aged children
Project aim: The objective of this project is to evaluate the IgE sensitisation profiles of school-aged children in an urban population in the capital of Austria/Vienna. The pediatric cohort has been recruited for a cross-sectional evaluation of SARS-CoV-2 prevalence in Austria during the early phases of pandemic in 2020.
Expected results: The evaluation of this population shall be used to establish the characterisation of an IgE antibody profile alongside a broad molecular signaling approach covered by the ALEX² Multiplex test.
Contribution by MADx: To support this research effort, MADx provided ALEX² tests to Dr. Szépfalusi and his team.
