New Biomarker Distinguishes Types of Angioedema, Study Finds

Researchers have developed a new way to distinguish bradykinin-mediated angioedema from histamine-mediated angioedema. This biomarker tool may improve the use of targeted therapies in angioedema patients. The study, “Threshold‐Stimulated Kallikrein Activity Distinguishes Bradykinin‐ From Histamine‐Mediated Angioedema,” was published in Clinical & Experimental Allergy. Angioedema encompasses…
