Induction of Immunogenicity With Different Doses of TreeMATA in Subjects Allergic to Tree Pollen

2014-08-27 03:53:12 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Tree MATA (modified pollen allergen tyrosine adsorbate) has been developed to provide pre-seasonal specific immunotherapy for patients with hypersensitivity to tree (birch, alder, and hazel) pollen. Different doses of Tree MATA will be administered and immunological changes following this treatment will be assessed.

Description

Tree MATA MPL has been developed to provide pre-seasonal specific immunotherapy for patients with proven type I hypersensitivity to tree (birch, alder, and hazel) pollen.

The tree pollen extract is modified with glutaraldehyde to produce the active ingredient, an allergoid. This modification reduces the reactivity of the extract with IgE antibody, thus reducing the risk of side effects. However, a simultaneous reduction in other important immunological properties, such as IgG and T cell reactivities, is not seen.

MPL (Monophosphoryl Lipid A), a purified, detoxified glycolipid derived from the cell wall of Salmonella minnesota, is included in the product formulation as an adjuvant to increase the immunogenic effect of the product and to enhance the switch from an allergen-specific TH2 to a TH1-like T cell profile.

The purpose of this study is to assess specific immunological changes (IgG, IgG1, IgG4 and IgE) in allergic subjects following 2 subcutaneous injections of different doses of study medication (Tree MATA) or placebo administered 3 weeks apart. The immunological changes will be used to assess the performance of the R7 IgG reactivity assay over a range of clinically efficacious doses.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Antigen-type substances that produce immediate hypersensitivity (HYPERSENSITIVITY, IMMEDIATE).

Allergic reaction to products containing processed natural rubber latex such as rubber gloves, condoms, catheters, dental dams, balloons, and sporting equipment. Both T-cell mediated (HYPERSENSITIVITY, DELAYED) and IgE antibody-mediated (HYPERSENSITIVITY, IMMEDIATE) allergic responses are possible. Delayed hypersensitivity results from exposure to antioxidants present in the rubber; immediate hypersensitivity results from exposure to a latex protein.

Epicutaneous or intradermal application of a sensitizer for demonstration of either delayed or immediate hypersensitivity. Used in diagnosis of hypersensitivity or as a test for cellular immunity.

A form of hypersensitivity affecting the respiratory tract. It includes ASTHMA and RHINITIS, ALLERGIC, SEASONAL.

An immunoglobulin associated with MAST CELLS. Overexpression has been associated with allergic hypersensitivity (HYPERSENSITIVITY, IMMEDIATE).
