IgE in human eccrine sweat.


By the use of a sensitive and specific double antibody radioimmunoassay, immunoglobulin E was demonstrated in sweat from 6 of 11 healthy volunteers; the concentrations of IgE ranged from 1 to 3.9 ng/ml of sweat. Six of seven patients with dermatitis and elevated levels of serum IgE also had high IgE levels in sweat; the highest IgE value in sweat was 75.5 ng/ml and was noted in a patient with atopic dermatitis. Thus, all the main immunoglobulin classes can be demonstrated in eccrine sweat.
