Presentation on theme: "Diseases Hypersensitivity- Types"— Presentation transcript:
1 Diseases Hypersensitivity- Types Active sensitization in guinea pigs is induced by a single injection of a foreign protein such as egg albumin. After an incubation period of about 2 weeks, the animal is usually challenged with IV Inj of the same protein.Within 1 min, the animal becomes restless, its respiration becomes labored, and its blood pressure drops. As the smooth muscles of the gastrointestinal tract and bladder contract, the guinea pig defecates and urinates. Finally bronchiole constriction results in death by asphyxiation within 2–4 min of the injection.All S/S from vasodilation and smooth-muscle contraction brought on by mediators .Postmortem:- massive edema, shock, & bronchiole constriction are the major causes of death.Systemic anaphylaxis in humans is characterized by a similar sequence of events.
2 Types of Type 1 hypersensitivity Type I Reactions Can BeSystemicLocalized
3 SYSTEMIC ANAPHYLAXISoccurs within minutes after the allergen is introduced in blood (bee sting or through gut)Symptoms range from mild urticaria (hives) to shock-like symptom i.e.anaphylaxis may become fatal e.g.respiration may become laboredblood pressure may dropAirway constrictionSwelling of epigottisDifficulty in breathingUsually against foods such as peanuts or bee sting
5 Some historians claim that Egypt's first pharaoh, Menes, was killed by a wasp's sting
6 TreatmentEpinephrine is the drug of choice for systemic anaphylactic reactions:relaxing the smooth muscles and reducing vascular permeabilityimproves cardiac output
7 SYSTEMIC ANAPHYLAXIS Urticaria may be: Might be caused by: Acute (type I)chronic (type II)Might be caused by:venom from bee, wasp, hornet, and ant stings;drugs, such as penicillin, insulin, and antitoxins;seafood and nutsIf not treated quickly, these reactions can be fatal
8 InterestinglySome IgE mediated anaphylaxis in response to insect venom, drugs or foods are not associated with atopy
9 LOCALIZED ANAPHYLAXIS (ATOPY) Tendency to manifest localized anaphylactic reactions is inherited and is called atopyIn localized anaphylaxis, the reaction is limited to a specific target tissue or organ- epithelial surfaces at the site of allergen entryAtopic allergies, which afflict at least 20% of the population in developed countriesinclude a wide range of IgE-mediated disordersincluding allergic rhinitis (hay fever),asthma,Atopic dermatitis (eczema)and food allergies
10 Late-Phase Reactions Induce Localized Inflammatory Reactions As a type I hypersensitive reaction begins to subside, mediators released during the course of the reaction often induce localized inflammation called the late-phase reactionThe late-phase reaction begins to develop 4–6 h after the initial type I reaction and persists for 1–2 daysThe reaction is characterized by infiltration of neutrophils, eosinophils, macrophages, lymphocytes, and basophilsThe localized late-phase response also may be mediated partly by cytokines released from mast cells
11 Mediators of early and late phase responses of Type 1 hypersensitivity
14 Type I Hypersensitivities Can Be Controlled Medically Avoid contact . Removal of house pets, dust-control measures, or avoidance of offending foods . Elimination of inhalant allergens –pollens is a physical impossibilityType I Hypersensitivities Can Be Controlled Medicallyto avoid contact with known allergensOften the removal of house pets,dust-control measures,or avoidance of offending foods can eliminate a type I response
15 Immunotherapy the use of humanized monoclonal anti-IgE repeated injections of increasing doses of allergens (hyposensitization) has been known for some time to reduce the severity of type I reactionsshift toward IgG productionto induce T-cell– mediated suppression
