Ross Immunology Overview of Hypersensitivity Reactions

STUDY
PLAY
Define allergen.
an antigen that causes IgE mediated hypersensitivity reaction.
Define allergy.
harmful antigen antibody reaction involving foreign antigen in food, pollen or chemical.
Define atopy.
hereditary tendency to develop IgE mediated allergic reactions to allergen that doesn't bother the normal individual.
Define anaphylaxis.
ana-against, phylaxis-protection. immediate hypersensitivity reaction from sensitization of tissue fixed mast cells by IgE.
Define anaphylactoid reaction.
anaphylaxis not of IgE origin. maybe by activation of complement - generation of anaphylatoxins C3a, C4a, C5a. cause degranulation of mast cells, release of vasoactive mediators.
Define sensitization.
allergic reaction require prior immunization by allergen that elicits the acute response.
