Peptides for Diagnosis and Therapy of Celery Allergy and of Hazelnut Allergy

06.09.2012
<strong>Background</strong><br>

Celery is a frequent cause of food allergy in pollen-sensitized patients and may induce severe allergic reactions. Allergic reactions against celery are of major clinical relevance due to celery's wide presence in convenience foods and spice. Approximately 3% - 4% of the European and American population and 5% of young children are affected by immunoglobulin E (IgE) mediated food allergy. The symptoms ranging from mild oral pruritus to a possible life-threatening anaphylactic shock.</p> <strong>Technology</strong><br> We offer novel linear IgE-binding peptide epitopes of the major celery aller-gen Api g1 for the diagnosis and therapy of celery allergy. The peptides can also serve as a basis for the detection of traces of Api g1 allergens in food and other products. Based on the novel peptides, a high specific assay was developed which allows the differentiation between celery allergic patients and healthy individuals.</p>

<b>Benefits:</b> <ul> <li>Highly specific diagnosis of celery allergic patients (IgE detection)</li> <li>Assay allows a reliable, rapid and easy diagnosis</li> <li>Peptides are usable for chip and other high throughput applications</li> <li>Peptides might be suitable for a specific desensitization of patients (Immunotherapy)</li> <li>Antibodies against these peptides can be used for the detection of traces of celery in food and other products</li> </ul><br> <p><strong>IP Rights</strong><br> EP application (July 2010)<br> PCT application (July 2011) <br> <br> <strong>Origin</strong><br> The invention was made at the Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin.</p> <b>Find the technology offer and contact details here: <a href="http://www.ipal.de/technologieangebote/10048" target="_blank">http://www.ipal.de/technologieangebote/10048</a></b>

Im Focus: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
