Drugs and Biologics

Drugs and Important Biological Agents (IBA) related to Egg Hypersensitivity:
1. Immunoglobulin E (IgE)IBA
02/01/2009 - "There may be some benefit in using an egg-free diet in infants with suspected egg allergy who have positive specific IgE to eggs - one study found 51% of the children had a significant improvement in body surface area with the exclusion diet as compared with normal diet (95% CI 1.07-2.11) and change in surface area and severity score was significantly improved in the exclusion diet as compared with the normal diet at the end of 6 weeks (MD 5.50, 95% CI 0.19-10.81) and end of treatment (MD 6.10, 95% CI 0.06-12.14). "
01/01/2008 - "There may be some benefit in using an egg-free diet in infants with suspected egg allergy who have positive specific IgE to eggs - one study found 51% of the children had a significant improvement in body surface area with the exclusion diet compared to normal diet (RR 1.51, 95% CI 1.07 to 2.11) and change in surface area and severity score was significantly improved in the exclusion diet compared to the normal diet at the end of 6 weeks (MD 5.50,95% CI 0.19 to 10.81) and end of treatment (MD 6.10, 95% CI 0.06 to12.14). "
09/01/2015 - "Further and better-designed studies are needed to determine the remaining diagnostic cutoff of specific IgE and SPT for heated and baked egg allergy."
03/01/2008 - "Different studies proposed specific immunoglobulin E (IgE) cut-off levels for the diagnosis of egg allergy. "
