Name the cells responsible for such reactions



A person shows strong unusual hypersensitive reactions when exposed to certain substances present in the air. Identify the condition. Name the cells responsible for such reactions. What precautions should be taken to avoid such reactions?


If a person is hypersensitive to a certain substance present in the air, he may be allergic to it. Mast cells release certain chemicals, e.g. histamine and serotonin, in response to this substance, that results in allergic reaction.
