The trick is that in a given allergen, for example, peanuts, there could be several potential antibodies that could be causing an allergic reaction in a patient.
To figure out exactly which one, Bilgicer has also created a diagnostic technology that uses nanoparticles, which will help identify those so that a personalized treatment approach can be administered.
This nanoparticle technology, named nanoallergens, will also drastically improve existing allergy testing in the clinic by accurately diagnosing the severity of the allergic condition for any allergy patient.
The potential is exciting, even life-changing, but the timeline is long. By collaborating with physicians and allergy specialists, like Dr. Wayne Shreffler from Massachusetts General Hospital and Dr.
Manish Butte at Stanford Medical School, he is evaluating the potential of his technology to translate to the clinic. But Bilgicer underscores that a typical timeline for therapeutics is eight to ten years from lab to market.
But Bilgicer believes strongly in his products and is determined to move them along. In 2015, he co-founded Certus Therapeutics, a company which will help push technology and treatments through clinical trials.
Has a potential for abuse less than those in schedules 1 and 2. Has a low potential for abuse relative to those in schedule 3.
Has a low potential for abuse relative to those in schedule 4. Eye allergies, also called allergic conjunctivitis, are quite common. They occur when the eyes react to something that irritates them called an allergen. The eyes produce a substance called histamine to fight off the allergen. As a result, the eyelids and conjunctiva become red, swollen and itchy. The eyes can tear and burn. Unlike other kinds of conjunctivitis, eye allergies are not spread from person to person.
This is because allyl isothiocyanate is one of the main constituents of wasabi, and it increases mucus flow and stimulates the elimination of those depositions from your respiratory tract, taking allergens with them.
Steam Treatment: One of the simplest home remedies for relieving allergic reactions and symptoms is steam inhalation. Heat up a pot of water until it is boiling and then, once you turn the flame off, drape a towel over your head and the pot. Inhale the steam from the boiling water into your nose. This will help to clear the sinuses of any blockage, and relieve the tension in your respiratory tract that often happens when you are suffering from allergies.
