The wheal-and-flare generally resolves within about 30 minutes. However, in up to 50% of subjects challenged intradermally with a high dose of allergen the immediate reaction evolves into a late phase reaction characterized by an indurated erythematous inflammatory reaction. The latter reaches a peak at about 6–8 hours and often persists for 24 hours. The reduction in the size of the LPR to intradermal allergen challenge correlates well with the clinical response to subcutaneous allergen immunotherapy in patients with allergic rhinitis.

20 Modulation of allergic responses by cytokines, chemokines, and adhesion molecules 1 always be successful if an alternate cytokine can subserve the same function. g. TNF) has resulted in a significant therapeutic benefit.

Cytokine regulation of IgE synthesis Cytokines such as IL-4 play a very important role in class switching of B cells to generate IgE an essential component of allergic responses (see Section on IgE).

MMPs are zinc-dependent endopeptidases present in many leukocytes that have specific and selective activity against many components of the extracellular matrix which they degrade into fragments. MMP-9, MMP-2 and ADAM-33 are examples of proteases that have been most extensively studied in allergic inflammation because of their increased levels of expression in allergic inflammation or in the case of ADAM-33 genetic linkage to asthma.
