Sample text

Among many possible food allergens which may account for exercise-induced anaphylaxis, it has been shown recently that the allergenic component ω–5 gliadin from wheat is a frequent cause [19]. As this 14 Worm sensitization can now be measured by determination of specific IgE, the diagnostic workup for this clinical entity has been significantly improved [20]. These data suggest that due to an increase of food allergy and in particular tree nut and peanut sensitization, the risk for anaphylaxis has been increased at the same time.

Nevertheless, at the slowly developing adaptive immunity site, antigen specificity in an evolved response of both T and B lymphocytes takes part. T lymphocytes are responsible for cell-mediated immune responses, where B lymphocytes are for humoral immune responses [41]. Exosomes are vesicles of 30–100 nm produced by inward budding of endosomal compartments and are released by a range of different cell types. Exosomes from APCs carry immunorelevant molecules like MHC class I and II and costimulatory molecules and thus are suggested to have a role in immune modulation.
