Abstract

The interaction of immunoglobulin E and otherwise harmless antigens (allergens) leads in sensitized individuals through effector cell activation to the immediate induction of a cascade of inflammatory reactions, the hallmark of type I allergy. Recently, the molecular and structural characterization of allergens, specific IgE antibodies and their epitopes has made rapid progress. Here we discuss active and passive strategies for therapy of type I allergy, which are based on interfering with the IgE-allergen interaction.
