Allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis: diverse effects of acute phase illness and prednisone on total and specific serum immunoglobulins



Allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis: diverse effects of acute phase illness and prednisone on total and specific serum immunoglobulins



Journal of Clinical and Laboratory Immunology 2(3): 199-203



Both total IgE and specific IgE against Aspergillus fumigatus declined with prednisone therapy and clinical remission, but decline in total IgE was significantly greater in 4 of 5 patients with allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis. Total IgE, specific IgE and specific IgG all rose and fell during recurrences of allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis and repeat remissions, but there was a discordance between time of peak levels of IgE and specific IgE.
