INTRODUCTION An association between pollen count (Poaceae) and symptoms is well known, but to a lesser degree the importance of priming and lag effects. Also, threshold levels for changes in symptom severity need to be validated. The present study aims to investigate the relationship between pollen counts, symptoms and health related quality of life (HRQL),(More)
INTRODUCTION Respiratory allergic disorders like rhinitis and asthma are common conditions that not only affect target organs, but complicate the daily life of affected children and adolescents. OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to investigate the QoL (quality of life) in children with grass pollen allergy in and out of grass pollen season. METHODS(More)
This article reviews interactions and health impacts of physical, chemical, and biological weather. Interactions and synergistic effects between the three types of weather call for integrated assessment, forecasting, and communication of air quality. Today's air quality legislation falls short of addressing air quality degradation by biological weather,(More)
The European Commission Cooperation in Science and Technology (COST) Action FA1203 "SMARTER" aims to make recommendations for the sustainable management of Ambrosia across Europe and for monitoring its efficiency and cost-effectiveness. The goal of the present study is to provide a baseline for spatial and temporal variations in airborne Ambrosia pollen in(More)
Airborne pollen has been associated with allergic symptoms in sensitized individuals, whereas atmospheric pollution indisputably aggravates the impact on the overall quality of life. Therefore, it is of major importance to correlate, forecast and disseminate information concerning high concentration levels of allergic pollen types and air pollutants to the(More)
