Summary In recent times, allergy has become a financial, physical andpsychological burden to the society as a whole. Allergic reactions can result in life-threatening situations causing morbidity and high economic cost. Therefore, more effective reagents are needed for allergy treatment. Literature suggests that a causal relationship exists between the intake of Omega-3/6 fatty acids such as DHA, EPA, DPA and AA and atopic individuals suffering from allergies. In an allergic cascade, cytokines IL-4 and IL-13 bind to IL-4 receptor (IL-4R), which activates the STAT6 phosphorylation pathway leading to gene activation of allergen-specific IgE production by B cells. The overall aim of this study is to characterise Omega-3/6 fatty acids and their effects on IgE production.
