The IgE inhalants panel is an allergy test which evaluates serum IgE antibody levels region-specific to common pollen’s and environmental inhalants. This is an ideal allergy test for patients with suspected environmental and/or seasonal allergies.
The allergic IgE response is comprised of not only an immediate event but in many cases a late event as well. The early phase reaction usually occurs within 15 minutes of exposure to the allergen. The late phase reaction may then occur 4-6 hours later and persist for days with increased inflammation.
It is recommended that IgE allergy testing is only performed for infants greater than 18 months of age.
