2014-08-27 03:39:24 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The aim of this study is to evaluate the expression of IgE high affinity receptors (the part of the cell associated with allergic response) in patients suffering from uncontrolled severe asthma despite long term treatment with high dose of inhaled corticosteroid and long acting Beta-2 agonist.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An anti-IgE, recombinant, humanized monoclonal antibody which specifically binds to the C epsilon3 domain of IMMUNOGLOBULIN E, the site of high-affinity IgE receptor binding. It inhibits the binding of IgE to MAST CELLS and BASOPHILS to reduce the severity of the allergic response and is used in the management of persistent allergic ASTHMA.

Misunderstanding among individuals, frequently research subjects, of scientific methods such as randomization and placebo controls.

Asthma attacks caused, triggered, or exacerbated by OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE.

An effect usually, but not necessarily, beneficial that is attributable to an expectation that the regimen will have an effect, i.e., the effect is due to the power of suggestion.

Asthma attacks following a period of exercise. Usually the induced attack is short-lived and regresses spontaneously. The magnitude of postexertional airway obstruction is strongly influenced by the environment in which exercise is performed (i.e. inhalation of cold air during physical exertion markedly augments the severity of the airway obstruction; conversely, warm humid air blunts or abolishes it).
