Specificity of the human IgE response to inhaled acid anhydrides.
Patients with work-related respiratory symptoms caused by inhaled acid anhydrides (trimellitic (TMA), phthalic (PA), tetrachlorophthalic (TCPA), and maleic anhydrides) have specific IgE antibody. The antibody is specific for a conjugate of the sensitizing anhydride (the hapten) and human serum albumin (HSA). We have investigated the specificity of the reaction to determine whether the antibody is directed against (1) the anhydride, (2) new antigenic determinants formed by conjugation of album...Expand abstract
