Hypersensitive Reactions

1. Type I


2. Type II Hypersensitivity 3. Type III Hypersensitivity 4. Type IV Hypersensitivity

1. Basic concepts
Hypersensitivity reactions are harmful antigen-specific immune
responses , occur when an individual who has been primed by an innocuous antigen subsequently encounters the same antigen , produce tissue injury and dysfuntion.

Allergen the antigens that give rise to immediate hypersensitivity Atopy
the genetic predisposition to synthesize inappropriate levels of IgE

specific for external allergens

1) Characteristics Occur and resolve quickly Mediated by serum IgE Systemic and regional tissue dysfuntion Genetic predisposition .

2) Components and cells in Type I hypersensitivity Allergen pollen dust mite insects etc selectively activate CD4+Th2 cells and B cells Allergin IgE IgE and its production mainly produced by mucosal B cells in the lamina prapria special affinity to the same cell IL-4 is essential to switch B cells to IgE production High affinity receptor of the IgE on mast cell and basophil Eosinophil .

DC.High affinity receptor of the IgE on mast cell and basophil FcIRI (high affinity ) FcIR FcIRII (low affinity ) (CD23) on circulating basophil. T. basophil Lysis sCD23(IgE-BF) Switch B cell to IgE production . connective tissue mast cell FcIRIIa FcIRIIb on B cell on B. M .


3 The process and mechanism of Type I hypersensitivity 1) Priming stage 2) Activating stage Crosslinkage Enzyme reaction Degranulation of mast cell . basophil last more than half a year 3) Effect stage Immediate/early phase response: Mediated by histamine Start within seconds Last several hours Late-phase response Mediated by new-synthesized lipid mediators Take up 8-12hours to develop Last several days .


Mechanism of type I hypersensitivity Primary Generation Allergen Secondary Individual IgE Adhesion IgE binds to the FcIRI on mast cell and basophil Allergen binds to the IgE on primed target cell Crosslikage of FcIRI Degranulate and release the biological mediators Preformed granule mediators Histamine Bradykinin New generated mediators Leukotrienes PAF Prostaglandin D2 Dilate capillaries. increase mucus secretion. contract smooth muscle Systemic anaphylaxis Skin Respiratory tract Degist tract .increase permeability.

Histamine: Dilate blood vessel Increase vascular permeability 2. Platelet activating factor (PAF) : Agglutinate and activate platelets to release histamine 5. Prostaglandin: High concentration of PGE low concentration of PGE Inhibit the secretion of histamine promote the release of histamine 4. Bradykinin : Vasodilator function ECF-A : . Leukotrienes: Bronchial smooth muscles contract Asthmas 3. Eosinophil chemotactic factor 6.The biological mediator on effect stage 1.

4. Skin allergy: . Common disease of type I hypersensitivity 1. Systemic anaphylaxis: a very dangerous syndrome 1) Anaphylactic drug allergy 2) Anaphylactic serum allergy penicillin 2. Respiratory allergic diseases : 1) Allergic asthma 2) Allergic rhinitis acute response. Gastrointestinal allergic diseases : The lack of SIgA protein hydrolase Undigested protein Allergen 4. chronic response 3.

Drug therapy 1) Stabilization of triggering cells sodium cromoglycate stabilize the membrane. Therapy of type I hypersensitivity 1. Temporality Blocking antibody 3.5. Allergen avoidance : Atopy patch test 2. Desensitivity therapy / Hyposensitization : 1) Allogenic serum desensitivity therapy: Repeated injection small amounts of allergen. New immunotherapy . 2) Specific allergen desensitivity therapy IgG+allergen Neutralizing antibody.
