Despite differing hypersensitivity conditions, patients within these autoimmune subgroups may be more likely than their counterparts with the same hypersensitivity condition to have a positive autologous serum skin test (ASST), a marker of self reactivity; have autoantibodies (high affinity IgE receptor (Fcepsilon Rla aka FceRIa), IgE, or others) that may contribute to their conditions; and have more severe cases.
The tissue injury and phenotypic abnormalities develop as a result of these pathogenic autoantibodies (Dema and Charles, 2016).
