How stupid allergies are. Stupids. Our immune system becomes hysterical in reacting to external impulses and does so for no reason: an 'excess of defense' which in the most serious cases can even lead to death. The so-called 'vaccines' currently on the market are only desensitizing treatments that actually act on the symptoms, nothing that eliminates the triggering cause once and for all.
[highlight] Today a new molecule could succeed in the mission: [/ highlight] its name is DARPin E2-79 and it is described as "The Holy Grail of Immunoglobulin E targeted treatments". Immunoglobulin E is a type of antibody that our body generates in response to certain types of allergens. If the dog's coat bothers us, for example, our body will have a 'special' Immunoglobulin present even when we are not next to a dog (this is the reason why the response to an allergic agent is always immediate). Because of these immunoglobulins, our immune system is always on the alert, in short.
The mechanism that today causes even serious reactions is a combination of these immunoglobulins and mast cells, cells that release histamine and other substances that cause the symptoms of the allergic attack.
How does DARPin E2-79 work? The mechanism, in a nutshell, consists in keeping mast cells and immunoglobins at a distance: it is a bond that forms very quickly and in a very solid way, but the Stanford researchers have tested this molecule because it has the ability to 'run' faster , intervening before the reaction is triggered and in fact 'dismantling' the phases of the allergic attack with great benefit for our body (it is the end of every anaphylactic shock).
Unfortunately, DARPin E2-79 is a rather expensive molecule for pharmaceutical companies to produce. A circumstance that does not give us hope for its short-term use. However, having ascertained all the mechanisms of operation and traced an 'identikit' for the life-saving molecule, everything suggests that the research will now focus on similar types of molecules but cheaper to produce: the pill that will destroy every allergy forever is more and more close.
