They are all subjected to the estimation of total serum IgE level by using Nephelometry methodology technique in the central health laboratory and Hilla Teaching Hospital the period Nov. 2017 to Feb. 201in Babylon Governorate. A significant increase in the level of IgE in AD patients was detected in all age groups in comparison with the control group. The results also showed that patients of blood group (o+) are the most frequent by percent (28%) followed by B+, AB+, A+ and AB¯ with percent reached (24, 20, 14and 4%) respectively.
