Part Descriptions

LP17040-4   Parietaria judaica
Parietaria judaica (spreading pellitory) is a species of plant in the family Urticaceae, commonly nicknamed sticky-weed. The plant's pollen is highly allergenic. In Australia it is also known as asthma weed, due to the high incidence of allergy. It is unrelated to the herb pellitory (Anacyclus pyrethrum). It is easily confused with the very similar species Parietaria officinalis. Copyright Text is available under the Creative Commons Attribution/Share-Alike License.

LP17040-4   Parietaria judaica
Wall pellitory is a common weed around the Mediterranean and along the West coast of Europe as far north as central England. It is found in Spain, Greece, Italy and Israel, and has been introduced in other parts of Western Europe and in Australia and Argentina. Two closely related species are found in the US and one in Brazil.

The genus Parietaria has about 10 species, which are highly cross-reactive to each other. Parietaria pollen allergens (officinalis, judaica, lusitanica, creatica) are one of the most common causes of pollinosis in areas where the plants grow. A close correlation exists between the species P. judaica and P. officinalis. In some geographical areas one species may dominate, and IgE antibodies to only one of the species can be found in sensitised individuals.

Wall pellitory pollen has been recognised as an important allergen, causing symptoms of asthma, allergic rhinitis and allergic conjunctivitis. Rhinoconjunctivitis and bronchial asthma, alone or in association, represent the most common clinical manifestations of this allergy. Copyright Copyright © 2006 Phadia AB.

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
