Were studied the effects of water-soluble plant polysaccharides isolated from pharmacopoeic raw material on anaphylactic shock and production of IgE and IgG1 by lymphocytes from mice immunized with ovalbumin. Course treatment with polysaccharides from coltsfoot, sweet flag, clover, Artemisia, marigold, and elecampane reduced animal mortality after induction of anaphylactic shock. In addition, injection of these substances reduced serum concentrations of IgE and IgG1. These substances can be regarded as promising agents for the treatment of IgE-dependent diseases (atopic dermatitis, asthma, atopic rhinitis, urticaria, food allergies, etc.).
