It has been reported that soluble HLA-G serum levels are increased in patients with pollen-induced allergic rhinitis and decrease after immunotherapy. However, no functional study has been conducted so far. The aim of this study was to evaluate the membrane expression and secretion of HLA-G molecules in peripheral blood mononuclear cells from allergic rhinitis patients after in vitro incubation with the causal allergen.

Abstract

It has been reported that soluble HLA-G serum levels are increased in patients with pollen-induced allergic rhinitis and decrease after immunotherapy. However, no functional study has been conducted so far. The aim of this study was to evaluate the membrane expression and secretion of HLA-G molecules in peripheral blood mononuclear cells from allergic rhinitis patients after in vitro incubation with the causal allergen.
