Part Descriptions

LP14932-5   Anisakis
A genus of nematodes of the superfamily ASCARIDOIDEA. Its organisms are found in the stomachs of marine animals and birds. Human infection occurs by ingestion of raw fish that contain larvae. Source: National Library of Medicine, MeSH 2006

LP14932-5   Anisakis
Anisakis is a parasitic nematode whose larvae occupy several types of fish and cephalopods such as cod, sardine, tuna, mackerel and squid as intermediate hosts.

Specific IgE-antibodies to Anisakis can contribute to asthma, and it has been shown to cause urticaria, angioodema and anaphylaxis. Copyright Copyright © 2006 Phadia AB. Source: ImmunoCap, ImmunoCap

LP32397-9   Ab.IgG4
IgG4 is the least common subtype of IgG, and it has a variety of functions. In the context of allergic disease it is thought to have an immune-inhibitory role in preventing anaphylaxis and is commonly known as a “blocking” antibody. IgG4 binding to an allergen can compete with IgE-mediated binding, thereby inhibiting the activation of mast cells and basophils and IgE-mediated presentation to T-cells. Measuring IgG4 and its ratio to IgE has a role in monitoring allergen specific immunotherapy [PMID: 26023323] . IgG4 is also thought to have a role in autoimmunity and be involved in a less defined entity known as IgG4-Related Disease, a chronic immune-mediated fibroinflammatory disorder that often manifests with tumor-like masses .[https://www.merckmanuals.com/professional/musculoskeletal-and-connective-tissue-disorders/igg4-related-disease/igg4-related-disease] Source: Regenstrief LOINC
