Disease relevance of Egg Hypersensitivity


High impact information on Egg Hypersensitivity


Chemical compound and disease context of Egg Hypersensitivity

  • We conclude that sensitization to avian proteins could induce egg allergy and that livetin is an important allergen in this cross-reactivity [7].

Anatomical context of Egg Hypersensitivity


Gene context of Egg Hypersensitivity

  • The immunoreactivity of the domain preparations to human IgE antibody directed against ovomucoid was examined by using the sera from patients of egg allergy [9].
  • The presence of egg allergy should therefore not be considered a contraindication to MMR immunization [10].
