Woman, difficulty breathing for 1.5 hours. Wheezing is heard. Lab tests show an increased eosinophil count and eosinophils in the sputum. Which of the following is the most likely sequence of events for initial sensitization to the allergen causing these findings?

A) Cytokine release, then IgE production, then T lymphocyte induction
B) IgE production, then B lymphocyte activation, then T lymphocyte induction
C) IgE production, then T lymphocyte induction, then cytokine release
D) T lymphocyte induction, then cytokine release, then IgE production

What do you guys think is the answer, and why?

I do not know what is the answer.
