  1. Multiple IgE-mediated sensitizations to enzymes after occupational exposure : Evaluation by skin prick test, RAST, and immunoblot.

    Article - En anglais

    We investigated 10 sensitized and 10 nonsensitized workers from a pharmaceutic factory who had been exposed to powdered trypsin, chymotrypsin, bromelain, papain, amylase, and lipase.

    Ten nonallergic subjects served as a control group.

    Titrated skin prick tests (SPT), RAST, and immunoblot studies were performed with all six enzymes.

    SPT reactivity revealed multiple sensitizations to proteolytic enzymes, i.e., papain (specifically sensitized/total number of sensitizations : 9/10), trypsin (8/10), chymotrypsin (8/10), and bromelain (7/10) and appeared to be more frequent and more pronounced than sensitizations to amylase (3/10) or lipase (3/10).

    The low molecular weight of proteolytic enzymes (20-30 kDa) and their biologic activity might facilitate mucosal penetration more easily and thus - compared to amylase and lipase - permit an immune response and induction of allergic hypersensitivity.

    Immunoblot studies demonstrated IgG-binding bands in both SPT-positive and - negative workers, indicating exposure to the enzymes, but not in 10 unexposed control subjects.

    IgE-binding bands of the enzymes were detected only in workers with a positive SPT reaction and/or a positive RAST result.

    IgG bands were more frequent and the IgG/IgE ratio was increased in workers without allergic complaints compared to symptomatic workers. (...)

Fermeture du portail BDSP le 1er juillet 2019

Madame, Monsieur, utilisateurs du site BDSP et de ses services,

Nous avons le regret de vous informer de la fermeture du portail BDSP le 1er juillet 2019.

Pendant une période de transition de six mois, du 1er janvier au 30 juin 2019, le site et ses services resteront accessibles mais ne seront plus alimentés, ni mis à jour.

Plus précisément, concernant le service "Offres d'emploi", les dernières annonces seront publiées le 18 décembre 2018.

Concernant le service "Annonces de colloques", les dernières annonces seront publiées le 30 novembre 2018.

Nous vous informerons régulièrement sur le devenir des services (archivage ouvert, reprise, arrêt) et nous vous proposerons des réorientations vers des services similaires.
