Amit is allergic to pet dogs.The symptoms include running nose, sneezing, redness and inflammation of nose and eyes.
(a) Name the antibodies and other chemical responsible for this response.
(b) Suggest one drug to give relief to amit from allergic reaction
Dear student, (a) The antibodies formed are called as Immunoglobulin E antibodies. These attack the incoming foreign particles in the body and cause allergic reactions. Because of attack of IgE, the mast cells secrete certain chemicals called histamine, cytoKines that irritate people with allergies. (b) Antihistamines help to give relief from allergic reactions. Thanks and regards
