An Ige Inhibition Assay For The Detection Of Allergen Specific Ige
Abbreviated Journal Title
A method for the detection of specific IgE in human serum is described, using a modified radioimmune assay termed the Inhibition Assay Technique (IAT) The technique is based on the ability of specific IgE to bind with allergen. The difference in total IgE before incubation with the allergen and after incubation with the allergen gives a relative concentration of specific IgE to that particular allergenic substance. The assay has been shown to correlate with both the intradermal skin test as well as the standard RAST now used to determine specific IgE.
