Changes in Specific Immunoglobulin and Blood Basophil Activity During Subcutaneous Immunotherapy in Allergic Rhinitis

2014-08-27 03:15:17 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The trial is randomized prospective study to examine the effects of subcutaneous immunotherapy on the adaptive immune system. The trial includes 30 participants randomized to treatment or control group. The effect measures are changes in the basophil activity and biology as well as changes in plasma cells during and after treatment. Clinical outcome is assessed by QoL questionnaires and clinical testing.

Hypotheses:

- changes in plasma cells correlate to changes in immunoglobulins and effector cell responses

- the reduction of inflammation due to SCIT has influence on the effector cell responses

- changes in paraclinical measurements can be related to clinical findings

Description

We are recruiting 30 participants, which are randomized to receive SCIT (24) or no treatment (6) We measure

- the development of immunoglobulin response

- plasma cells under updosing phase

- changes in basophil activity under updosing and maintenance treatment

- subtyping of allergic sensitization

- clinical outcome and quality of life

- changes in mast cells in the nasal mucosa

- changes in the cell biology of the basophils

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Form of passive immunization where previously sensitized immunologic agents (cells or serum) are transferred to non-immune recipients. When transfer of cells is used as a therapy for the treatment of neoplasms, it is called adoptive immunotherapy (IMMUNOTHERAPY, ADOPTIVE).

An androstadiene derivative corticosteroid that is used as an ANTI-ALLERGIC AGENT for the treatment of inflammatory and allergic eye conditions.

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.

A pregnadienediol derivative ANTI-ALLERGIC AGENT and ANTI-INFLAMMATORY AGENT that is used in the management of ASTHMA and ALLERGIC RHINITIS. It is also used as a topical treatment for skin disorders.

A glucocorticoid employed, usually as eye drops, in the treatment of allergic and inflammatory conditions of the eye. It has also been used topically in the treatment of various skin disorders. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p732)
