Abstract

The regulation and function of IgE in healthy individuals and in antigen-naïve animals is not well understood. IL-33 administration increases serum IgE in mice with unknown mechanism. We tested the hypothesis that IL-33 provides an antigen-independent stimulus for IgE production and mast cell degranulation.
