Finnish scientists promise to develop a vaccine against all allergens
Universal vaccine allergies – this is a real prospect of the next 5-7 years, certain employees of the University of Eastern Finland by Prof. Royvinena Juhu. This vaccine may be a relief, because, scientists project that by 2015 only in Europe 50% of the population will suffer from allergies, writes "RBC Daily".
Currently doctors can offer only allergic antihistamines and anti-inflammatory agents, cleaning the symptoms but not the cause. Therefore, entering the body, the allergen molecules react to immunoglobulin E (IgE). In response, a release of histamine, which causes the symptoms.
However Finnish experts were able to identify in various allergens IgE antibodies. If these structures change, will not be produced IgE and will stimulate the production of immunoglobulin G (IgG), which protects against bacteria and viruses. Therefore, developing immunity to allergies.
Irina deposit, head office advisory clinic number one NMHTS im.N.I. Pirogov, says: "The problem of creating such a drug has been around for many years. Despite tremendous progress, the experts could not distinguish separate parts of immunoglobulins responsible for the production of IgE in response to the intake in the allergen. Unknown how this theory will be able to put into practice, because a huge amount of allergens. "
