  Radioallergosorbent test (RAST)



Radioallergosorbent test (RAST)

    A solid-phase radioimmunoassay for detecting IgE antibody specific for a particular allergen.

RELATED TERMS
--------------------------------------

Antibody
An infection-fighting protein molecule in blood or secretory fluids that tags, neutralizes, and helps destroy pathogenic microorganisms (eg, bacteria, viruses) or toxins. Antibodies, known generally as immunoglobulins, are made and secreted by B-lymphocytes in response to stimulation by antigens. Each specific antibody binds only to the specific antigen that stimulated its production.

Allergen
An antigen responsible for producing allergic reactions by inducing IgE formation.

PREVIOUS AND NEXT TERMS
--------------------------------------

Ruminantia
A suborder of the order Artiodactyla whose members have the distinguishing feature of a four-chambered stomach. Horns or antlers are usually present, at least in males.

Rabies
An acute infectious disease of the central nervous system affecting almost all mammals, including humans. It is caused by a rhabdovirus and usually spread by contamination with virus-laden saliva of bites inflicted by rabid animals. Important animal vectors include the dog, cat, vampire bat, mongoose, skunk, wolf, raccoon, and fox.

Repetitive strain injury
Harmful and painful condition caused by overuse or overexertion of some part of the musculoskeletal system, often resulting from work-related physical activities. It is characterized by inflammation, pain, or dysfunction of the involved joints, bones, ligaments, and nerves.

Restless legs
A disorder characterized by aching or burning sensations in the lower and rarely the upper extremities that occur prior to sleep or may awaken the patient from sleep. Complying with an irresistible urge to move the affected limbs brings temporary relief. Sleep may become disrupted, resulting in excessive daytime hypersomnolence. This condition may be associated with uremia; diabetes; and rheumatoid arthritis. Restless Legs Syndrome differs from nocturnal myoclonus syndrome in that in the lattercondition the individual does not report adverse sensory stimuli and it is primarly a sleep-associated movement disorder.

Rosacea
An acneiform eruption occurring mostly in middle-aged adults and appearing generally on the forehead, cheeks, nose, and chin. Three types are recognized: granulomatous, glandular hyperplastic with rhinophyma, and ocular.
