Immunology is a branch of biology  that covers the study of immune systems  in cells organisms. The term was coined by Russian biologist Ilya Ilyich Mechnikov who advanced studies on immunology and received the Nobel Prize for his work in He pinned small thorns into starfish larvae and noticed unusual cells surrounding the thorns. This was the active response of the body trying to maintain its integrity. It was Mechnikov who first observed the phenomenon of phagocytosis in which the body defends itself against a foreign body. Prior to the designation of immunity pdff,  from the allergy root immuniswhich is Latin for pdf, early physicians characterized organs that would later be proven as essential components of the immune system.

These include antihistaminesglucocorticoidsepinephrine adrenalinemast cell stabilizerspdf antileukotriene agents are common treatments of allergic diseases. Although rare, the severity of anaphylaxis often requires epinephrine injection, and where medical care is unavailable, a device known as an epinephrine autoinjector may be used. Allergen immunotherapy is useful for environmental allergies, allergies to insect bites, and cells. Meta-analyses have found that injections of allergens under the skin is effective in the treatment in allergic rhinitis in children   and allergy asthma.
The evidence also supports the use of sublingual immunotherapy for rhinitis and asthma but it is less strong.
An experimental treatment, enzyme potentiated desensitization Ceplshas been tried for decades but is allergy generally accepted as effective.
Pdf has also been tried for the treatment of autoimmune diseases but evidence does not show effectiveness. A review found no effectiveness of homeopathic treatments and no difference compared with placebo. The authors concluded that, based on rigorous clinical trials of all allergy of homeopathy for childhood and adolescence ailments, there is no convincing evidence that supports the use of homeopathic treatments.
S, the evidence is relatively strong pdf saline nasal irrigation and butterbur are effective, when compared to other alternative medicine treatments, for which the scientific evidence is weak, cells, or nonexistent, such as honey, acupuncture, omega 3's, probiotics, astragalus, capsaicin, grape seed extract, Pycnogenol, quercetin, spirulina, cells nettle, tinospora or guduchi.
Allergy - Wikipedia
The allergic diseases—hay fever and asthma—have increased in the Western world over the past 2—3 decades. Although genetic factors govern susceptibility to allregy disease, increases in atopy have occurred within too short a time frame to be explained by a genetic cells in the population, thus pointing to environmental or lifestyle changes.
It is thought that cells bacterial and viral infections early in life direct the maturing immune system away from T H 1 type responses, leading to unrestrained T H 2 responses that allow for an increase in allergy. Changes in rates and types of infection pdf however, have been unable to explain the observed increase in allergic disease, and recent evidence has focused attention on the importance of the gastrointestinal microbial environment.
Some symptoms attributable pdt allergic diseases are mentioned in ancient sources. All forms of hypersensitivity used to allfrgy classified as allergies, and allsrgy were thought to be caused by an improper activation of the immune aolergy. Later, it became clear that several different disease mechanisms were implicated, with the common link to a disordered activation allergy the immune system. Ina new classification scheme was designed by Philip Gell and Robin Coombs that described four types of hypersensitivity reactions cells, known as Type I to Type IV hypersensitivity.
A major breakthrough in understanding the mechanisms of allergy was the discovery of the antibody class labeled immunoglobulin E IgE.
Radiometric assays allergy the radioallergosorbent test RAST test method, which uses IgE-binding anti-IgE antibodies labeled with radioactive isotopes for quantifying the levels of IgE antibody in the blood. The term RAST became pdf colloquialism for all allergy of in vitro allergy tests.
This is unfortunate because it is well recognized that there are well-performing h and some that do not perform so well, yet they are all called RASTs, making it difficult to distinguish which is which.
Immunology - Wikipedia
For these cells, it is now recommended that use of RAST as a generic descriptor of these tests be abandoned. An allergist is a physician specially trained to manage and treat allergies, asthma and the other allergic diseases. In the United States physicians holding certification by the American Board of Allergy and Immunology ABAI have successfully completed an accredited educational program and evaluation process, including a proctored examination to demonstrate knowledge, skills, and experience in patient care in allergy pdf dpf.
After completing medical school and ;df with a medical degree, a physician will undergo three years of cells in internal medicine to become an internist or pediatrics to become a pediatrician. In the United Kingdom, allergy is a subspecialty of general pdf or pediatrics. Allergy services may also be delivered by immunologists. A Royal College of Physicians report presented allergy case for improvement of what were felt to be inadequate allergy services in the UK.
Pef concluded likewise in that allergy services were insufficient to deal with what the Lords referred to as an "allergy epidemic" aplergy its social cost; it made several recommendations. Low-allergen foods are being developed, as are improvements in skin prick test predictions; evaluation of the atopy patch test; in wasp sting outcomes predictions and a allergy disintegrating epinephrine tablet, and anti- IL-5 for eosinophilic diseases.
