The substances related to allergy that we can measure by EIA were described. Allergic reactions begin from the reaction of an antigen and IgE on the membrane surface of basophils and mast cells. The chemical mediators are released from the cells activated by the reaction of antigen and IgE. The chemical mediators proceed to the reactions of focal or total body inflammation. Measurements of serum IgE, chemical mediators, and cytokines are important parameters for the diagnosis and therapy of allergic disease. Antigen analyses are possible by application of EIA. It is also possible to apply EIA in the prevention of allergic diseases.
