WHAT IS ALLERGEN-SPECIFIC IGE TEST?

Immunoglobulin E (IgE) is a protein produced in the bone marrow that functions as an antibody in response to antigen stimulation in hypersensitivity reactions. IgE levels are influenced by the nature of the allergen, length of exposure to the allergen, symptomatic responses, and hyposensitisation treatments. The test is performed by radioimmunoassay.
