IgA is predominant among secreted immunoglobulins and plays an active role in immunity defence on mucosa surfaces. It prevents from the absorption of antigens and allergens into mucosa, and inhibits IgE dependent allergic reaction. There is some evidence that IgA deficiency plays a role in etiopathogenesis of allergic diseases. Low IgA in human milk may predispose the infant to development of allergy. Both the role of IgA response in immunotherapy and its role in allergic diseases are still unclear and they merit further research.
