It is a hypersensitivity to a particular substance which, if inhaled, ingested or touched for some characteristic symptoms. The substance to which they are allergic is called a "allergen", and the symptoms are defined as "allergic reactions".

The alteration of the blood related to anemia, rests strictly on erythrocytes and / or hemoglobin. In the blood, which is altered is the total mass of erythrocytes. All the factors and conditions should be taken in relation to the parameters and ranges considered normal and standard. Anemia is considered chronic if it lasts more than six months.

Condition in which the body lacks or has lost strength either as a whole or in any of its parts. General asthenia occurs in many chronic wasting diseases, such as anemia and cancer, and is probably most marked in diseases of the adrenal gland.(ASTENIA)


Chronic respiratory disease characterized by airway hyper-reactive, ie an increase in the constrictor response bronco-bronchial tree. Airways finest casual and reversible decrease in size by its smooth muscle contracting or spreading of the mucosa inflamed and produce mucus, usually in response to one or more factors such as exposure to an inappropriate environment (cold, wet or allergen), exercise or effort in hyper-reactive patients, or emotional stress. This narrowing causes obstruction and therefore difficult to move the air that is largely reversible, unlike chronic bronchitis where there is little reversibility(ASMA)


They are glycoproteins secreted by the organism in due to the immunization with an antigen.(ANTICUERPO)
