The literature on the nature and prevalence of indoor and/or outdoor aeroallergens, atopy and symptoms of rhinitis and asthma in the Middle East region (defined here as Bahrain, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Oman, Palestine, Qatar, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia - KSA, Syria, United Arab Emirates and Yemen) was reviewed. Although documentation was poor in all countries other than Iran and the KSA, a wide range of "global" and "local" aeroallergens (grass, weed and tree pollens… Expand
Total and Specific Immunoglobulin E for Detection of Most Prevalent Aeroallergens in a Jordanian Cohort
TLDR
Testing of specific IgE is an essential procedure that helps to detect the cause of allergy and exclude allergen sensitization, and positive total and Specific IgE indicate probability of sensitization. Expand
Prevalence of common sensitizing aeroallergens in Egyptian asthmatic patients
TLDR
German cockroach, fungi, and house dust mite are the chief sensitizing aeroallergens in Egyptian asthmatic patients. Expand
Allergen profile of rhinitis and asthma among Iraqi patients
TLDR
Molds (Alternaria alternate spores) as well as mixed allergens were the mostly encountered types in Iraqi AR and AS patients, and the age range 16–45 years is an important target for AR andAS. Expand
Allergic Rhinitis and Its Epidemiological Distribution in Syria: A High Prevalence and Additional Risks in War Time
TLDR
A correlation to being distressed from war noises was found with AR which could reflect a psychological aspect of allergic rhinitis which is usually overlooked in developing countries due to resource scarcity. Expand
Association of molds and metrological parameters to frequency of severe asthma exacerbation
TLDR
Despite of high rate of sensitization to molds, their significant role in triggering AE was not found in desert environment and typical desert climate and high allergencity of local weeds outweigh the influence of the molds. Expand
Minimizing the Number of Aeroallergen Extracts in Skin Prick Test in IgE-Mediated Allergic Disorders in Both Adults and Children in Jordan
TLDR
It was concluded that only 8 allergen extracts were needed for detecting 95% of sensitized patients (both pediatrics and adults) in SPT. Expand
Epidemiological and immunological study of nasal polyposis among allergic patients in Babylon province: Cross-sectional study.
TLDR
Nal polyposis was found to be highly prevalent in patients with respiratory allergy and the combined presence of these two diseases caused additional increment in allergic markers. Expand
Association of Hemoglobin Level with Clinical Severity and other Disease Markers in Patients with Allergic Rhinitis
TLDR
Some markers of systemic inflammation in allergic rhinitis correlate significantly with hemoglobin levels and may have etiologic contribution to the anemia in these patients specially in the perennial type of the disease. Expand
Which skin prick test wheal size detects true allergy to Salsola kali
TLDR
Physicians should select the proper SPT wheal size value as an appropriate criterion according to the allergen than using a uniform cut off value in patients eligible for SkAIT. Expand
Validity of Skin Prick Test to Bermuda Grass in a desert environment
Background and aim: Skin prick test (SPT) with a wheal diameter of >3 mm, generally accepted as a positive, is most commonly use diagnostic tool for Allergic rhinitis. Aim was to validate wheal sizeExpand

Prevalence of aeroallergens in allergic rhinitis in shiraz.
TLDR
Pollens are the main sensitizing allergens among patients with allergic rhinitis in Shiraz, and this pattern of prevalence was expected based on herbal geography, climate and also found to be compatible with the results from studies carried out in places with the same habitat. Expand
Sensitization to aeroallergens among patients with allergic rhinitis in a desert environment.
TLDR
Pollens of the local horticultural plants are the main sensitizing allergens among patients with allergic rhinitis in this desert environment, and the practices that "green" the desert seem to also encourage allergen sensitization. Expand
Nasal allergies in the Middle Eastern population: results from the "Allergies in Middle East Survey".
TLDR
The Allergies in Middle East Survey was undertaken to help clarify and broaden the understanding of physician-diagnosed AR across Egypt, Iran, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates, and to highlight treatment gaps. Expand
Hypersensitivity to house dust mite and cockroach is the most common allergy in north of iran.
TLDR
The hypersensitivity to house dust mites is very common in north of Iran which may be attributed to the warm and humid weather of this area. Expand
Prevalence of Asthma, Allergic Rhinitis and Eczema among Lebanese Adolescents
TLDR
Allergic diseases are highly prevalent in Lebanon and are catching up with the rates of developed countries, and the role of each of the three diseases in the existence of the other two had the greatest impact on their prevalence. Expand
A clinical study of airborne allergens in the United Arab Emirates.
TLDR
Pollen was the prominent allergen in an UAE population and there is room for further epidemiological studies possibly with new extracts and RAST specifically designed after the species of the Gulf region. Expand
Skin prick test reactivity to common aeroallergens among allergic rhinitis patients in Iran.
TLDR
The aim of this study was to evaluate the prevalence of positive skin test to various common aeroallergens among allergic rhinitis patients in the city of Mashhad and showed the importance of weeds, especially the Amaranthaceae and Chenopodiaceae families. Expand
A study of clinical and allergic aspects of rhinitis patients in Riyadh.
TLDR
In the allergic groups, sensitivities to indoor allergens, i.e., cockroaches, cat fur, house dust, as well as to pollens, were very prominent, while among the nonspecific provoking factors, dust, strong smells, smoke and stress seem to be important. Expand
Human sensitization to Prosopis juliflora antigen in Saudi Arabia.
TLDR
The role of Prosopis pollen as a sensitizing factor in Saudi Arabia has been confirmed, however, the cause of elicitation of symptoms in many multiple sensitive patients, together with the question of cross-reactivities, needs thorough and detailed investigation. Expand

TLDR
Indoor allergens seem to play a lesser role in respiratory allergies in Kuwait, and most allergic patients become sensitized to pollens; the strongest and most frequent reaction is from Salsola pollen. Expand
