Background: As the incidence of allergic asthma in children increases, the immunoglobin E (IgE) molecular sensitization profile of allergic asthma remains underreported while the level of total IgE (tIgE) and sIgE/tIgE have not been studied as predictors of efficacy of allergen immunotherapy (AIT) for allergic asthma, specifically in children.
Methods: Starting from August 2018 to March 2019 in the Respiratory Department of the Children's Hospital of Chongqing Medical University, asthmatic children, with positive skin prick tests to Der p or Der f, were enrolled in this study. Total IgE, allergen serum-specific IgE (sIgE) of Der p, Der f, (Blo t), cat dander, dog dander, egg white, milk, cockroach, shrimp, and crab, along with Der p allergen components, Der p1 and Der p2, were measured by ImmunoCAP™ assay.
