    About the Lecture

    The lecture Allergy: Diagnosis, Therapy and Treatment of Asthma – Hypersensitivity by Peter Delves, PhD is from the course Hypersensitivity and Autoimmune Disease. It contains the following chapters:

    • Diagnosis of Atopic Allergy
    • Therapeutic Options for Allergy
    • Treatment of Asthma
    • Allergy Immunotherapy

    Included Quiz Questions

    1. β-adrenergic agonist
    2. H₁ receptor antagonist
    3. Anti-IgE antibody
    4. Leukotriene antagonist
    5. Corticosteroid
    1. Mast cells that have been sensitized to the allergen in the past
    2. Circulating IgE antibodies
    3. IL-33 release from Dendritic cells
    4. Anti-IgE labelled antibodies
    5. Enzymatic reaction to injected allergen
    1. Mast cell Degranulators
    2. H1 Blockers
    3. Corticosteroids
    4. Leukotriene inhibitors
    5. Immunotherapy
    1. Immune reaction is shifted away from a Th2/IgE mediated reaction, Treg cells are increased
    2. Mast cells are stabilized and the cytokines that mediate the immune response are downregulated
    3. Smooth muscles in allergy-prone areas of the body are directly sensitized
    4. Block the production of Histamine, decreases severity of immune reaction
    5. Directly block activity of IgE on Mast cells
