Common Respiratory Allergy Panel — Basic

The Common Respiratory Allergy Panel — Basic panel contains 14 tests with 14 biomarkers.

The Common Respiratory Allergy Panel — Basic test is designed to measure the level of specific IgE antibodies in your blood, which can help in identifying if you have an allergic reaction to certain common allergens. This particular panel focuses on:

  • 5 Weeds and Grasses:

    • Bermuda grass
    • Timothy grass
    • Common Ragweed
    • Rough Pigweed
    • Sheep Sorrel
  • 2 Tree Pollens:

    • Oak
    • Elm
  • 7 Specific Indoor Allergens:

    • Cat Dander
    • Dog Dander
    • Mouse Urine
    • Alternata
    • Cockroach
    • Dust mite - D. Pteronyssinus
    • Dust mite - D. Farinae

The antibodies that this test measures are part of the body's immune response to these specific allergens. When an individual is exposed to an allergen, their immune system may respond by producing an excessive amount of the antibody known as IgE. The activation of IgE triggers the release of histamine, a substance that leads to an allergic reaction. Normally, IgE antibodies are found in minimal amounts in the blood. However, higher levels of IgE may signify an overreaction of the body to allergens. The presence of these antibodies, in conjunction with observed allergic symptoms, can be indicative of an allergy. This test can be a vital tool for understanding and managing respiratory allergies.
