Subject:   RADIATION  -  Re IgG subclass deficiencies in disease


To All:   The table copied below is just a small part of the weblink provided regarding immune deficiency under the classification of IgG Subclass Deficiencies and other Immune Deficiencies:


As most know, my two grandsons who slept close to electric meters, were diagnosed with "rare deficiencies" -- chances of developing were said to be "infitismal" and the immunologist classified as "Primary Immune Deficiencies."   I have always strongly believed we were never told the truth and finally now, you will note that AIDS/HIV is not the only listing under "Secondary Immune Deficiency," a classification that should have been assigned to my two grandsons' rare hypogammaglobulinemia which means only "low immune...."      Their rare, IgG subclass 1 and 3 deficiencies ARE due to radiation exposure and are, in fact, "Secondary deficiencies....."    


This, in spite of many scientific studies, not the least of which are those of Dr. Fatih Uckun, who was at the University of Minnesota  [  ]    at the time he received our grandsons' blood.


I am not surprised but I am "very angry!!!"    Radiation is radiation is radiation.....the effects are identical if one takes into account low level, chronic, prolonged exposures!!!    Best wishes for a better tomorrow.........  Joanne

IgG Subclass deficiencies in disease:



TABLE VI: IgG Subclasses in secondary immunodeficiency syndromes:

Secondary immunodeficiency:

IgG subclass deficiencies

HIV-infection (stages III and IV) (80,81,82)

IgG2 and IgG4 levels are often decreased, while levels of IgG1 and IgG3 are increased

Radiation exposure, chemotherapy (83,84) (bone-marrow transplantation)

often associated with low levels of IgG2 and IgG4
