Resources for Allergies

  1. An excellent resource for study of allergy and the immune system is the special issue of Scientific American which is devoted to this topic--see Scientific American, September, 1993 for a collection of excellent articles including Lichtenstein, Lawrence M. Allergy and the Immune System (page 116).

  2. Additional background selections from Scientific American:

    Ricard L. Edelson, Joseph M. Fink. The Immunologic Function Of Skin, June, 1985. page 46 US, page 34 Intl.
    Abstract: The body's largest organ is more than a passive protective covering: it is also an active element of the immune system. Specialized cells in the skin have interacting roles in the response to foreign invaders. Subjects: allergy, immune system, kesatinocyte, Langerhans cells, leukocytes, skin.

    Paul D. Buisseret. Allergy, August, 1982. page 86 US, page 82 Intl.
    Abstract: It can now be understood as immunity gone wrong. Why hay-fever victims make antibody to a normally innocuous pollen is not clear, but the cellular and biochemical agents of the response are known. Subjects: allergy, anaphylactic response, B cells, delayed hypersensitivity, histamine, house-dust mite, immune response, mast cells, ragweed pollen, T cells.

  3. World Wide Web Resources:
