Elevated serum IgE and IgG4 in patients with atopic dermatitis.


The quantitative measurement of the IgE and IgG subclass levels in the sera of 29 patients with atopic dermatitis has revealed significantly elevated levels of IgE and IgG4 in a relatively high proportion of patients with this condition compared to non-atopic patients with warts and to a group of normal volunteers studied previously. The possible significance of these observations is discussed in relation to current evidence suggesting the involvement of IgG4 in certain immediate-type hypersensitivity disorders.
