Disease information

Pain, itching and swelling of the bite are normal reactions to an insect bite. However, for people who are sensitized against insect allergens, allergic reactions can occur within minutes after an insect bite. These reactions include:

  • Pain and swelling of the throat and tongue
  • Dyspnea
  • Intestinal and stomach complaints
  • Neurological manifestations such as confusion, vertigo and even hysteria
  • Disturbed gait
  • An increased pulse and drop in blood pressure

In worst case scenarios, these reactions can also cause a life-threatening anaphylactic shock. According to estimations, such allergies to insect venom and antigens occur in about 1 to 7 percent of the population.

Diagnostic Guidelines

For clarification of insect venom allergies, differential diagnostics play an important role in defining allergy-inducing species. EUROIMMUNE offer different insect venom profiles which cover all the common causative agents for insect venom allergies. Moreover, the profiles also include recombinant country specific allergens in addition to natural insect allergens. This technique is called defined partial allergen diagnostics (DPA-Dx) and is used for simultaneous in-vitro determination of IgE antibodies.

Also, we offer total IgE ELISA for estimation of total serum IgE antibodies.
