Dietary allergy and specific IgE in ulcerative colitis1

Abstract

Previous authors have considered that allergy to certain foodstuffs may play an important role in the aetiology of ulcerative colitis, but immunological evidence for dietary allergy in ulcerative colitis is inconclusive. A study is reported of 22 patients with ulcerative colitis, with matched controls, in whom total serum IgE and specific IgE to certain foodstuffs have been estimated by the Phadebas PRIST and RAST (Pharmacia) techniques. Allergens tested were egg-white, milk, wheat, rye, oat, fish (cod) and peanut. There was no significant difference in the total serum IgE levels and the food specific IgE activity between the two groups.
