Measurement of IgE Protein and IgE Antibodies: The State of the Art
Abstract:Current methods for measurement of IgE protein and IgE antibody are reviewed. A variety of novel procedures for IgE protein measurement has been introduced; many of these are as sensitive as those used previously and require less time for their performance. Recent studies suggest that IgE antibodies to multiple allergens can be detected in a single assay using the radioallergosorbent test (RAST). This so-called "multi-RAST" could result in a significant cost reduction for screening assays of IgE antibodies.
