  • The many faces of systemic mastocytosis.

    spas L, Henriksen RA, Metzger WJ.

    This short review article will augment the reader's knowledge of mast cell physiology and will offer an overview of current information on the pathophysiology, heterogeneity, and treatment of human mastocystosis.

  • Towards an FDA-cleared basophil activation test.

    Alpan O, Wasserman RL, Kim T, Darter A, Shah A, Jones D, McNeil D, Li H, Ispas L, Rathkopf M, Perez E, Siri D, O'Connor M, Plassmeyer M, Romito K, Pettibone C, O'Reilly S, Sønder SU, Marti G.

    Food allergy is a global health problem affecting up to 10% of the world population. Accurate diagnosis of food allergies, however, is still a major challenge in medical offices and for patients seeking alternative avenues of diagnosis. A flawless test to confirm or rule out a food allergy does not exist.

  • Validation of inducible basophil biomarkers: Time, temperature and transportation.

    Kim T, Yu J, Li H, Scarupa M, Wasserman RL, Economides A, White M, Ward C, Shah A, Jones D, Rathkopf M, Frye K, Aybar A, Shayegan S, Enav B, Ispas L, Loizou D, Fitzhugh D, Tracy J, Friedlander J, Jacobs Z, Matz J, Golden D, McNeil D, McCann W, Copenhaver C, Factor J, Gupta R, Alpan O, Plassmeyer M, Sønder SU.

    The short stability window of several hours from blood collection to measuring basophil activation has limited the use of flow cytometry-based basophil activation assays in clinical settings. We examine if it is possible to extend this window to 1 day allowing for shipment of samples between laboratories.
