Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Pollen of Betula pendula, Ostrya carpinifolia, and Carpinus betulus was exposed in vitro to relatively low levels of the air pollutants, namely carbon monoxide, ozone, and sulfur dioxide. The allergenicity of the exposed pollen was compared with that of non-exposed pollen samples to assess if air pollution exposition affects the allergenicity potential of pollen. The immunodetection assays indicated higher IgE recognition by all sera of allergic patients to the pollen protein extracts in all exposed samples in comparison to the non-exposed samples. These results show that the pollen exposition to low pollutants' levels induces increased allergic reaction to sensitized individuals.
