Despite these early reports it took almost 20 years until discoveries in hypersensitivity were linked to basophils
and mast cells.
(2008), the epithelium of the spermatheca of stingless bee Melipona quadrifasciata anthidioides (Hymenoptera, Apidae) has a single layered epithelium and apical basophil
indicating a secretory function.
(13) using in vitro activation of basophils
concluded that encapsulating rocuronium by sugammadex can prevent, but not stop, the activation by the NMBA, and the administration of sugammadex unlikely mitigates anaphylaxis.
In his laboratory tests, the following data were obtained: hemoglobin: 17.7 g/dL, leukocyte: 18.130 [micro]L (neutrophil: 7200/[micro]L, lymphocyte: 8030/[micro]L, eosinophil: 1240/[micro]L, monocyte: 1440/[micro]L, basophil
: 220/[micro]L), C-reactive protein (CRP): 0.13 mg/L.
They concluded that only spleen size and peripheral basophil
count were significantly associated with response to Imatinib therapy.
For the class of basophils
, a high percentage of correlation (100%) was presented due to the low number of cells; according to , the percentage of basophils
in an adult sample is 0.4% compared to the total number of cells in the sample, while for eosinophils it is 2.3%, for monocytes it is 5.3%, for lymphocytes it is 30%, and for neutrophils it is 62%.
demonstrated by flow cytometry the ability of CSU patients' serum to activate donor basophils
as determined by the upregulation of CD203c ; in fact, the lack of basophil
CD203c-upregulating activity in the serum of patients with chronic urticaria correlates with a good clinical response to omalizumab .
We found significantly decreased WBC (p = 0.0021), neutrophil (p = 0.0001), basophil
(p = 0.002), and lymphocyte (p = 0.014) counts (Table 4).
Earlier studies reported that examination stress increases neutrophils, and platelets, and decreases eosinophil's, monocytes basophils
, and lymphocytes.
In some patients, anti-FceRI, anti-lgE, or other factors are capable of causing basophil
activation and serum-induced histamine release from basophils
This is consistent with clinical trials that showed improvement in symptoms after initial dose of 300mg omalizumab7-10.7-10 The improvement in symptoms after omalizumab shows that chronic urticaria is IgE-mediated; other mechanisms include decrease in release of inflammatory mediators from basophils
and mast cells.11
We found statistically significant differences between means of patients and controls for monocytes, neutrophils and basophils
