DI Maria R. Strobl received YSA Publication Award
Maria Strobl was awarded the Publication Award of the Young Scientist Association (YSA) of the Medical University of Vienna for the publication "The role of IgG1 and IgG4 as dominant IgE-blocking antibodies shifts during allergen immunotherapy" which was published in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology. In this study, the team led by Prof. Barbara Bohle longitudinally monitored allergen-specific IgG1 and IgG4 responses in terms of concentration, IgE-blocking activity, and avidity during three years of birch pollen immunotherapy. Their findings expand our knowledge on the kinetics of the humoral immune response to allergen immunotherapy and the relevance of allergen-specific IgG1.
