2014-08-27 03:46:44 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Intravenous- injection of beta-1,3-glucan in human is known to induce T helper type 1 response, while oral uptake did not. It was examined whether superfine dispersed beta-1,3-glucan (SDG) contrived to absorbed by intestinal mucosa would alleviate allergic symptoms by per-oral ingestion

Description

Beta-1,3-glucan made from Japanese mushroom is commercially available for healthy foodstuffs. Allergy patients were orally administrated either SDG (n=30) or non-dispersed beta-1,3-glucan (NDG, n=30) and allergic symptoms were assessed clinically, by the double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomized study

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Conjunctivitis due to hypersensitivity to various allergens.

Allergic rhinitis that occurs at the same time every year. It is characterized by acute CONJUNCTIVITIS with lacrimation and ITCHING, and regarded as an allergic condition triggered by specific ALLERGENS.

A long-acting, non-sedative antihistaminic used in the treatment of seasonal allergic rhinitis, asthma, allergic conjunctivitis, and chronic idiopathic urticaria. The drug is well tolerated and has no anticholinergic side effects.

An exocellulase with specificity for 1,3-beta-D-glucasidic linkages. It catalyzes hydrolysis of beta-D-glucose units from the non-reducing ends of 1,3-beta-D-glucans, releasing GLUCOSE.

An exocellulase with specificity for the hydrolysis of 1,4-beta-glucosidic linkages of 1,4-beta-D-glucans resulting in successive removal of GLUCOSE units.
