Prick test with a standard series of common aeroallergens and prick-byprick test with the clarinet reed (A.d.) were performed. Blood samples were obtained to determine specific serum IgE antibodies [enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA)]. The protein of the cane reed A.d. was extracted in phosphate-buffered saline. IgE immunoblotting with the extract of the clarinet reed and immunoblot inhibition with Phleum pratense pollen were performed.
