We offer two types of tests: AlergenFood 90 for semi-quantitative analysis of antibodies to 90 food allergens in a serum sample, and AlergenFood 45, which is designed to test 45 food allergens.
It is used to measure the relative amounts of IgG antibodies specific for a particular food in human serum.
Individual food allergens are immobilized separately on microtiter plates. The allergens are allowed to react with specific antibodies in the patient’s serum. Enzyme-conjugated antibodies react with the allergen-antibody complex. A color is developed upon addition of a substrate that reacts with the coupled enzyme. The intensity of the color is proportional to the concentration of IgG antibody specific to the allergen.
determine whether a persons suffers from type 3 food allergy and to develop an elimination diet which plays a crucial role in the treatment of chronic symptoms associated with IgG mediated food allergy.

is defined as an abnormal response to a food component triggered by the immune system. „Food can heal or be toxic” (Hippocrates).
It is a common knowledge that food or food additives may be responsible for many chronic diseases. Foods that typically produce such problems are: cow’s milk, eggs, wheat, corn, chocolate, nuts, soy, or shellfish, and can be explained by the mechanism of delayed food allergy (type III). The consumption of food allergen triggers a delayed response of the immune system, thus leading to chronic problems and diseases.
A characteristic feature of type III food allergy is that it is a delayed defensive response that may occur 8 to 72 hours after food consumption. Many patients do not realize that their problems could be linked to allergy, as symptoms can be produced even after 3 days of consumption. Because this reaction is delayed it may remain undiagnosed throughout life, and the patient seeks resolution to their symptoms without success. Meanwhile, therapeutic success largely depends on observing dietary restrictions that are based on the results of IgG level testing to selected foods. The most frequently occurring symptoms of type III food allergy are related to gastrointestinal tract and involve chronic gastrointestinal problems: irritable bowel syndrome, stomachache, nausea, diarrhea, flatulence, constipation, belching, feeling of fullness.
Type III food allergy is also associated with: chronic fatigue syndrome, bone and joint pain, skin changes, migraine, overweight and obesity, high blood pressure and type II diabetes.
Type III food allergy occurs when not completely digested food molecules penetrate through the intestinal wall and enter the circulation where they are identified as foreign elements. The bowel of a healthy man is lined with the mucous membrane which acts like a tough and stable defensive system and stands at the forefront of pathogens elimination. However, factors like infections, stress, alcohol abuse, viral or bacterial infections, drugs (e.g. antibiotics or anti-inflammatory agents) disturb this equilibrium and increase intestinal permeability letting larger, not fully digested food fragments pass to the bloodstream.
Increased intestinal permeability leads to continuous intensification of allergy-related symptoms, and is accompanied by the increased levels of IgG antibodies to food allergens. IgG antibodies bind to the antigen, i.e. the food particle, forming immune complexes that can trigger the inflammatory response. Systematic consumption of harmful foods leads to continuous activation of the immune system and development of chronic inflammatory condition.
The inflammatory process can develop anywhere in the body where the immune complexes are deposited. If, for instance, the complexes are deposited in the cerebral epithelium they may cause migraine; if they are deposited in the intestine, with time they may lead to the development of irritable bowel syndrome.
Therapy is concentrated on following dietary restrictions that are based on the results of IgG level testing to selected foods.
An increasing number of researchers recognize IgG-mediated food hypersensitivity as a potential cause of chronic conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome, migraines, asthma and obesity.

The use of an elimination diet based on IgG testing in patients IBS, not responding earlier to standard therapy, resulting in persistent clinical response and the impact on the overall well-being and quality of life of this difficult disease entity.
It seems that in many cases chronic gastrointestinal problems, including irritable bowel syndrome, are caused by food intolerance. There is mounting evidence that food intolerance, defined as the presence of specific IgG antibodies, is linked to irritable bowel syndrome. Studies have demonstrated that bowel symptoms in IBS patients can be alleviated with proper diet.
Eliminating from diet foods identified by AlergenFood90 test, that detects IgG antibodies, by IBS patients for a period of 12 weeks resulted in:
