Clinical Relevance of Food-Specific IgG4 Antibodies
Abstract:Although milk-specific IgG4 is frequently detectable in sera of apparently healthy individuals, the presence of alpha-casein (AC IgG4-specific) in high concentration (i.e. >9.98 g/ml) appears to be diagnostic of milk intolerance causing eczema in adults. The detection of egg-specific IgG4, on the other hand, has no similar diagnostic potential in egg-intolerant cases.
