    The presently used approaches to silence autoreactive disease-associated B cells act indiscriminately and more specific therapies are obviously needed. In the present study, we analyze the ability of a chimeric antibody to suppress selectively pathological autoreactive B-lymphocytes in...

    The production of IgE, a main player in allergic disorders such as asthma and atopic dermatitis, is strictly regulated and the serum concentrations of IgE are normally kept at a much lower level than other isotypes. We found that mice deficient for the p85α regulatory subunit of class IA...

    Atopic diseases are characterized by Th2 and IgE responses to common environmental and food antigens. In vivo, IgE production depends on interactions between allergen- specific B lymphocytes and Th2 lymphocytes. IgE levels are extremely low in normal individuals, suggesting that IgE production...

    Background: There are few treatment options for patients with severe atopic asthma. Antagonism of IgE is an effective strategy. We investigated, by utilizing serum samples from a clinical trial of Rituximab in patients with Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura, if B cell depletion would decrease...

    Specific immunotherapy (SIT) is the only specific remedy for the treatment of allergic diseases currently. B cells are important immune cells in the immunity. The role of B cells in immune regulatory activities has not been fully understood yet. This study aims to elucidate the role of the...

    The Job or hyper-immunoglobulinemia E syndrome is a primary immunodeficiency that is usually inherited in an autosomal dominant fashion. With the discovery of mutations in the STAT3 gene in the majority of autosomal dominant cases, it is now possible to make a molecular diagnosis of hyper-IgE...

    The article reflects on the result of the research on immunoglobulin E regulation on the functional heterogeneity of T cell clones which led to the T helper type 1-T helper type 2 (TH1-TH2) hypothesis. The hypothesis consisted of two different subsets of helper T cells distinguished by different...

  • T-bet: The Toll-bridge to class-switch recombination? Rifkin, Ian R; Marshak-Rothstein, Ann // Nature Immunology;Jul2003, Vol. 4 Issue 7, p650 

    Asthma is characterized by a predominant (T) H and the consequent production of cytokines, such as interleukin 4 (IL), IL-5 and IL-13, that mediate the clinical features of this condition. These include the production of allergen-specific immunoglobulin E (IgE) by B cells, and the ensuing...

  • IgE+ memory B cells and plasma cells generated through a germinal-center pathway. Talay, Oezcan; Yan, Donghong; Brightbill, Hans D; Straney, Elizabeth E M; Zhou, Meijuan; Ladi, Ena; Lee, Wyne P; Egen, Jackson G; Austin, Cary D; Xu, Min; Wu, Lawren C // Nature Immunology;Apr2012, Vol. 13 Issue 4, p396 

    Immunoglobulin E (IgE) antibodies are pathogenic in asthma and allergic diseases, but the in vivo biology of IgE-producing (IgE+) cells is poorly understood. A model of the differentiation of IgE+ B cells proposes that IgE+ cells develop through a germinal-center IgG1+ intermediate and that IgE...
