The present invention relates to the field of different wheat hypersensitivities, particularly with antigens and peptides for discrimination of different forms of these diseases. The invention relates to the identification of novel wheat allergens and the use thereof in therapy and diagnosis of celiac disease, dermatitis herpetiformis, and IgE-mediated allergy. Furthermore, the present invention provides the use of known peptides and proteins in therapy and diagnosis. The invention also relates to methods for diagnosis and treatment of celiac disease, dermatitis herpetiformis, and IgE-mediated allergy.


The present invention relates generally to the detection and identification of various forms of genetic markers, and various forms of proteins, which have the potential utility as diagnostic markers. By determining the level of a plurality of biomarkers and genetic markers in a patient sample, and combining the obtained values according to a predefined formula, it is possible to determine if it is likely that the patient suffers from prostate cancer.

The present invention relates to a method for calibrating a multiplex assay, comprising: adding a calibration reagent to a solid phase on which a plurality of capturing agents are immobilised, adding a detection molecule which has a capacity to bind to the calibration reagent, detecting bound detection molecule, thereby creating a calibration curve, wherein the calibration reagent comprises at least two different binding molecules, wherein each binding molecule has a capacity to bind specifically to a capturing agent immobilised on the solid phase and a capacity to bind to a detection molecule. Further provided is a multiplex assay system comprising such a calibration reagent.

The present invention relates generally to the detection and identification of various forms of genetic markers, and various forms of proteins, which have the potential utility as diagnostic markers. By determining the level of a plurality of biomarkers and genetic markers in a patient sample, and combining the obtained values according to a predefined formula, it is possible to forecast if it is likely that the prostate cancer patient will require active therapy like radiation therapy or surgery. A method based on a redundantly designed combination of data is disclosed for estimating if prostate cancer is aggressive or indolent. Said method combines SNP data to form a composite value, wherein at least 5% of the SNPs can be disregarded.

Methods for treatment of a Type I allergy in a mammal comprise administering to an individual in need of such treatment a polypeptide of SEQ ID NO: 1 or the mature protein, amino acids 25-260, of the polypeptide of SEQ ID NO: 1, or a fragment of the polypeptide or the mature protein, which fragment shares epitopes for antibodies with the polypeptide or the mature protein, respectively, or a hypoallergenic form thereof that is modified to abrogate or attenuate its IgE binding response. Diagnostic kits comprise the polypeptide of SEQ ID NO: 1 or the mature protein, amino acids 25-260, of the polypeptide of SEQ ID NO: 1, immobilized on a solid support.

The present invention relates to a method which may be used for the analysis of endogenously formed antibodies such as anti-drug antibodies (ADAs) or rheumatoid factor (RF) in a solution, which method comprises (a) contacting the solution with a solid phase to which e.g. IgG molecule(s) have been attached; (b) allowing the ADAs or RF to bind specifically to the attached molecule(s); (c) adding a labeled isotype-specific reagent capable of binding ADAs or RF; (d) removing any excess of reagent; and (f) detecting the label bound or unbound to determine directly or indirectly the presence or concentration of ADAs in the solution. The molecule(s) have been attached to the solid phase via a linker, which may be an organic molecule, an amino acid, a peptide, a protein a molecule of protein origin, a monosaccharide, an oligosaccharide or a polysaccharide. The method according to the invention may be used e.g. as an immunoassay for making clinical decisions in patient care, as well as in the development of new drugs.

Methods for in vitro diagnosis of type I allergy comprises the steps of contacting an immunoglobulin-containing body fluid sample from a patient suspected of having type I allergy with a variant or fragment of the mature protein, amino acids 25-260, of the polypeptide of SEQ ID NO: 1, which variant or fragment shares epitopes for antibodies with the mature protein, amino acids 25-260, of the polypeptide of SEQ ID NO: 1; and detecting the presence, in the sample, of IgE antibodies specifically binding to the variant or fragment. The presence of such IgE antibodies specifically binding to the variant or fragment is indicative of a type I allergy in the patient.

A method for performing in vitro diagnosis of type 1 allergy, comprises contacting an immunoglobulin-containing body fluid sample from a patient suspected of having Type 1 allergy with an immobilized horse allergen immobilized on a solid support, and detecting the presence, in the sample, of IgE antibodies specifically binding to the horse allergen, wherein the presence of such IgE antibodies specifically binding to the horse allergen is indicative of Type 1 allergy. A method for treatment of Type 1 allergy comprises administering to an individual susceptible to such treatment, the horse allergen, or a form of the horse allergen that is modified to abrogate or attenuate its IgE binding response. The horse allergen may be produced via a vector and a host cell comprising the vector.

Methods for producing an allergen composition, methods for in vitro diagnosis of type I allergy, and diagnostic kits for performing diagnosis employ Bos d 23k allergen of SEQ ID NO: 4, or the mature protein thereof, or a variant or fragment of the Bos d 23k allergen or the mature protein sharing epitopes for antibodies with the Bos d 23k allergen or the mature protein. Methods for treatment of a Type I allergy to a mammal and pharmaceutical compositions employ a Bos d 23k allergen of SEQ ID NO: 4, or the mature protein thereof, or a variant or fragment of the Bos d 23k allergen or the mature protein sharing epitopes for antibodies with the Bos d 23k allergen or the mature protein, wherein the Bos d 23k allergen, the mature protein, the variant or the fragment is modified to abrogate or attenuate its IgE binding response.


The present invention relates generally to the detection and identification of various forms of genetic markers, and various forms of proteins, which have the potential utility as diagnostic markers. By determining the level of a plurality of biomarkers and genetic markers in a patient sample, and combining the obtained values according to a predefined formula, it is possible to determine if it is likely that the patient suffers from aggressive prostate cancer. The present invention is particularly applicable only for patients having a body mass index value greater than 25.
