    Abstract

    Postmortem evaluation of total and specific serum immunoglobulin E (IgE) antibody levels by the paper radio immuno sorbent test (PRIST) and radio allergo sorbent test (RAST), respectively, revealed that there was no significant elevations in total circulating IgE or in specific IgE antibodies to house dust, Dermatophagoides farinae (house dust mite), Alterarnia tenuis (mold), or milk proteins for sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) victims when compared to a control group.
