Abstract

Objective and Design: Carboxymethylcellulose (CMC) has been considered to be inert and is commonly used as an additive in medicines, foods and cosmetics. However, we experienced a patient who developed an anaphylactic reaction to CMC after an upper gastrointestinal examination using a barium meal containing CMC. Therefore, we examined the incidence of sensitization by CMC in healthy subjects, and categorized the high risk group prone to developing anaphylactic response to CMC. Methods: An ELISA for detecting CMC-specific IgE antibody was developed using serum from the patient as a positive control. In the ten subjects exhibiting high anti-CMC IgE among 387 normal populations, histamine release from isolated leukocytes was performed. Results: Five of ten subjects with a high IgE titer showed a significant CMC-induced histamine release from leukocyte preparations in vitro as observed in the patient, and were classified as high risk group. There was a correlation between sensitization by CMC and that by Japanese cedar pollen. The incidence of sensitization in females was 2.4 fold higher than that in males. Conclusions: The combination of ELISA and histamine release experiment made it possible to identify the high risk group for developing anaphylactic response. The administration of high dose CMC as a suspending agent in barium sulfate or injectable corticosteroids to this group should be avoided to prevent anaphylactic reactions in the clinic.
