Patients were categorised into four grades according to clinical history. Serum total IgE were found proportionately increased with increasing grades of asthma. Similarly linear relationship of serum total IgE and skin reactions was observed. There was positive correlation between severity of asthma, skin sensitivity 3+and 4+and serum total IgE levels.
