Allergy

Allergy service identifies potential allergens responsible for allergic diseases, studying the presence or absence of Specific IgE against a wide range of food and environmental allergens.

It also develops specific hyposensitization vials against the tested allergens.

Screenings

It constitutes to the first stage in the clinical diagnosis of atopic dermatitis and it is based on the particular detection of specific IgEs against different groups of allergens.

Panels

They can identify allergens involved in atopic dermatitis. It combines new monoclonal antibodies which recognize three different epitopes with IgE.

- Allergens tested groups


  • Enviromental (Indoor + Outdoor). Specific IgE was determined against 24 allergens separated in two groups: 
  1. Indoor allergens: dust mites, storage mites, fungi and fleas. Más información
  2. Outdoor allergens: grass pollen, weeds and trees common in our geographic area. Más información

If the environmental screening is positive for Indoor, Outdoor or both the corresponding panel is made.


  • Food. Specific IgE was determined versus 12 food proteins separated in two groups: animal allergens and plant allergens. Más información

  • Equine. Specific IgE was determined against 24 allergens separated into four groups: 
  1. Mites: Dust mites and storage. 
  2. Fungi: mixture of the most common species of fungi. 
  3. Pollens: pollen from grass, weeds and trees common in our geographic area. 
  4. Insects: 4 different species of the main insects related to horse allergy. 

Inmunotherapy (subcutaneous)

Based on the medical history of the animal and clinical relevance of the tested allergens, hyposensibilitation vials are set. The vials are accompanied by an explanatory booklet containing the pattern to be followed in each case.

For proper treatment, vials initially start with a duration of 7 months. Once this phase has finished it is necessary to request continuation vials that last 8 months.
