Abstract

The present study was conducted to learn whether the perinatal and environmental factors could influence the total and antigen-specific IgE levels in umbilical cord blood. Retrospective data were obtained from 173 mother-infant pairs. Total and specific (for children's food, wheat/grass and house dust mite-HDM) cord blood IgE levels were determined using the immunoassay test. The total cord blood IgE was between 0.0-23.08 IU/ml (mean 0.55 +/-2.07 IU/ml; median 0.16 IU/ml). Total IgE levels were significantly higher in boys compared with girls (OR=2.2; P=0.007), and in newborns with complicated pregnancy (OR=2.7; P=0.003). A greater number of siblings correlated with increases in the total cord blood IgE (P<0.02). We detected specific IgE in 34 newborns (40 positive tests). A long-standing contact with a cat during pregnancy decreased the specific IgE level for wheat/grass (OR=3.2; P<0.07) and for children's food (OR=5.0; P<0.04), and the contact with a dog decreased the specific-IgE for wheat/grass (OR=0.3; P<0.05). Exposure to tobacco smoke correlated with the positive specific IgE toward house dust mite (OR=4.7; P=0.005).

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 2. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 25 February 2018.
All research outputs
#8,967,645
of 15,295,165 outputs
Outputs from European Journal of Medical Research
#130
of 278 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#143,632
of 276,737 outputs
Outputs of similar age from European Journal of Medical Research
#1
of 1 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 15,295,165 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 39th percentile – i.e., 39% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 278 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 5.0. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 51% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 276,737 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 44th percentile – i.e., 44% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 1 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than all of them
