Allergic diseases and other hypersensitivity reactions : causes, symptoms, diagnosis , treatment of

Allergic diseases and other hypersensitivity reactions are the result of inadequate, overly pronounced, the immune response that does not meet the severity of the disease or infection.According to the classification

Jello and Cubs are 4 types of hypersensitivity reactions.vkpyuchayut hypersensitivity reactions are typically several types.

I-type (immediate type hypersensitivity) mediated by IgE.The antigen binds to IgE (which is attached to the tissue or basophils blood basophils), triggers the release of finished mediators (such as histamine, proteases, chemotactic factors), and the synthesis of other mediators (such as prostaglandins, leukotrienes, platelet activating factor, IL).These mediators provide vasodilation;increased capillary permeability;lead to mucus hypersecretion, reducing smooth muscle tissue eosinophil infiltration, T-helper lymphocyte type 2 (Th2) and other cells involved in the inflammatory process.Type I reactions underlie atopic disorders (including allergic asthma, rhinitis, c

onjunctivitis), and the latex allergies and certain foods.

II type arise when the antibody binds to the cell or tissue allergens or haptens, coupled to cells or tissue.

antigen-antibody complex activates cytotoxic T lymphocytes, or macrophages, or the complement system, resulting in a cell or tissue damage (antibody-dependent cell-mediated cytotoxicity).Disorders related to type II reactions include acute rejection reaction in organ transplantation, Coombs-positive hemolytic anemia, Hashimoto's thyroiditis, Goodpasture's syndrome.

Ill type caused by inflammation in response to a circulating antigen-antibody complexes which are deposited in the tissue or vessel walls.These complexes can activate complement or bind to and activate certain immune cells that results in the release of inflammatory mediators.The extent of immune complex formation depending on the antibody and antigen ratio in the immune complex.First, there is a surplus of antigen in low antigen-antibody complexes, which do not activate complement.Later, when antibodies and antigens be balanced, the immune complexes become larger and tend to deposit in various tissues (glomerulus, blood vessels), which leads to systemic reactions.For reactions of type III include serum sickness, SLE (systemic lupus erythematosus), RA (rheumatoid arthritis), leukocytoclastic vasculitis, cryoglobulinemia, hypersensitivity pneumonitis, bronchopulmonary aspergillosis, certain types of glomerulonephritis.

IV type (delayed type hypersensitivity) mediated by T-lymphocytes.Allocate 4 subtypes based involved subpopulations of T lymphocytes: T-limofitsity helper type 1 (IVa), T-lymphocyte helper type 2 (IVb), cytotoxic T lymphocytes (IVc), T-lymphocytes secreting IL8(IVd).These cells are sensitized upon contact with a specific antigen, antigen activated after repeated exposure;they have a direct toxic effect on tissues or released by cytokines which activate eosinophils, monocytes and macrophages, neutrophils or killer cells, which depends on the type of reaction.For type IV reactions include contact dermatitis (such as poison ivy response), hypersensitivity pneumonitis, allograft rejection reaction, and many forms of tuberculosis drug hypersensitivity.
