A method for indicating a presence or non-presence of a predefined solid tumor cancer in an individual, comprising the steps of: A. Providing at least one biological sample originating from said individual at a first point in time; B. Providing at least one biological sample originating from said individual at a second point in time; C. In said at least two biological samples, measuring a presence or concentration of at least one biomarker related to said predefined solid tumor cancer; D. Combining data regarding the presence or concentration of the at least one biomarker to form a kinetic composite value that reflects the change of biomarker presence or concentration; E. Correlating the kinetic composite value to the presence or non-presence of said predefined solid tumor cancer in said individual by comparing the kinetic composite value to a pre-determined cut-off value established with control samples of known predefined solid tumor cancer and benign disease diagnosis; wherein the time period between the first point in time and the second point in time is in the range from 0.5% to 25%, or more preferably in the range from 0.1% to 15%,of a typical tumor volume doubling time of said predefined solid tumor cancer; and the at least one biomarker determined is the same biomarker in each of the biological samples.

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.
