Please explain the mechanism Please help me in this. Thanks in advance.

Goljan 3rd edition in his 3rd chapter , page 40 has Antibody (IgE)-dependent cell-mediated cytotoxicity
Please explain , why if anybody knows, how helminth infectipn can be in type I hypersensitivity reaction and also in type II hypersensitivity?

• Helminth in tissue is coated by IgE antibodies —> eosinophil lgE receptors attach

to the IgE —> eosinophils release major basic protein, which kills the helminith"


Any one knows the concept please??


Any one????


ADCC by definition is a type 2 hypersensitivity reaction.
