    Subsequently, several studies using animal models of serum sickness confirmed that antigen–antibody complexes formed in vivo could produce tissue damage. Detailed clinical and immunochemical analysis were performed prospectively by Lawley et al. [ 2 ] on a large series of patients with serum sickness.   SSLR is an allergic reaction characterized by a cutaneous eruption, arthralgias, fever, lymphadenopathy, facial edema, and malaise. True serum sickness was originally distinguished in as a self-limited illness that occurred in several patients after administration of equine diphtheria antitoxin.

Heterologous hyperimmune serum is also known as antitoxin. This product is produced in animals, usually horses (equine), and contains antibodies against only one antigen.

In the United States, antitoxin is available for treatment of botulism and diphtheria. A problem with this product is serum sickness, an immune reaction to the horse protein.

Serum sickness Serum sickness book a reaction that is similar to an allergy. The immune system reacts to medicines that contain proteins used to treat immune conditions. It can also react to antiserum, the liquid part of blood that contains antibodies given to a person to help protect them against germs or poisonous substances.

Management. Serum sickness–like reaction is an acute self-limited reaction with an ultimately favorable outcome. Serum sickness is a type III hypersensitivity reaction. The classic symptoms are malaise, rash, fever, arthralgias, and lymphadenopathy that occur within 8–12 days of antigen exposure and sooner.

Serum sickness. Serum sickness is a rare allergic reaction to heterologous or foreign protein or serum, usually in response to an injection.

(They may start sooner if. Serum Sickness is the prototype example of Type III Hypersensitivity and is caused by formation of immune complexes with exogenously delivered proteins in horse plasma. Pathogenesis Historically, treatment for exposure to certain toxins was achieved by injection of plasma derived from horses which had been immunized by the toxin.

Serum sickness in humans is a reaction to proteins in antiserum derived from a non-human animal source, occurring 5–10 days after exposure.

It is a type of hypersensitivity, specifically immune complex hypersensitivity. The term serum sickness–like reaction is occasionally used to refer to similar illnesses that arise from the introduction of certain non-protein substances, such as penicillin.

It was first Specialty: Hematology. Both ATG and ALG have been associated with serum sickness. The management of serum sickness is focused on removal of the offending/triggering antigen, decreasing inflammation to halt tissue injury, and decreasing production of antibodies.

Serum sickness is sometimes called a type III hypersensitivity reaction. The resulting immune complex of the patient's antibodies bound to the foreign protein is deposited in small blood vessels and stimulates the complement cascade and hence an inflammatory reaction.

Michael M. Frank, Kathleen E. Sullivan, in Stiehm's Immune Deficiencies, Serum Sickness. Serum sickness is the consequence of immune complex formation in response to the administration of drugs (e.g., penicillin, cefaclor, and minocycline), to foreign proteins (e.g., anti-thymocyte globulin, therapeutic monoclonal antibodies, or antivenoms), or, in some instances, to infections.

Serum sickness is a reaction that is similar to an immune system reacts to medicines that contain proteins used to treat immune conditions. It can also react to antiserum, the liquid part of blood that contains antibodies given to a person to help protect them against germs or poisonous substances.

Eleven of 12 patients developed typical signs and symptoms of serum sickness days after the initiation of treatment.

These included fever, malaise, cutaneous eruptions, arthralgias. Greg J. McKenna, Göran B.G. Klintmalm, in Transplantation of the Liver (Third Edition), Serum Sickness. Serum sickness is a reaction to proteins from antibodies derived from nonhuman animal sources, and it usually requires prior exposure to rATG (or rabbits).

The incidence of serum sickness in liver transplant recipients is reported as up to 6% with symptoms, including high fevers. Overview. Serum sickness is an immune-mediated hypersensitivity reaction due to the injection of non-human antitoxins that is characterized by rash, arthritis, and fever and commonly associated with other systemic features.
