Dear punamrjpt unless they mentioned in the question the word "first" or "primary" immno respond don't choose igM .. This is the trick doctor Kim talked about .. The anaphylactic respond here is due to the igE .. Be careful

Please someone correct me if I'm wrong !

-Complement-dependent reactions: ABO mismatch, Goodpasture´s Sx, hyperacute transplantation rejection, phagocytosis warm(IgG) autoimmune hemolytic anemia, ABO and Rh hemolytic disease of newborn.
-Complement independent reactions: Antibody (IgG, IgE) -dependent cell-mediated cytotoxicity: natural killer cell destruction of neoplastic and virus infected cells; helminth destruction by eosinophils.
-Type III HRS. Desposition of antigen-antibody complexes/Systemic Lupus (DNA-antiDNA), Reumatoid arthritis (IgM-Fc receptor IgG), Serum Sickness (horse antithymocyte globulin-antibody)
-Type IV HRS. Antibody-independent T-cell mediated reactions/
-Delayed type: contact dermatitis (poison ivy), tuberculous granuloma
