  journal={Istanbul Medical Journal},
Yöntemler: 1993 ve 2006 yılları arasında, en az 6 aydır kronik rinit şikayetleri olan, 9808 hasta DPT ile değerlendirilmiştir. Negatif kontrole cevap verenler ve pozitif kontrole cevap vermeyenler çalışmadan çıkarılmıştır. Prick testinde ETA ve spesifik polen (çayır, tahıl, ağaç, yabani ot, tatlı ilkbahar otu, zeytin, sarmaşık ve domuz ayrığı) antijenleri kullanılmıştır. Hastalar yaşlarına göre 6 gruba ayrılmışlardır: <8 yaş, 17-25 yaş, 26-35 yaş, 36-45 yaş ve >45 yaş. ETA ve/veya polen… Expand


Regional pollen load: effect on sensitisation and clinical presentation of seasonal allergic rhinitis in patients living in Ankara, Turkey.
Although Gramineae pollens seem to be major allergens for seasonal allergic rhinitis in Ankara, the particular role of tree pollens and weed pollens cannot be discarded on symptom development in sensitised patients. Expand
Skin test hypersensitivity for childhood asthma in Istanbul during a period of 16 years.
While house dust mites were determined as the predominant allergen for each age groups in this study, allergy against cat dander was the third important allergenic in sequence, as cat is a domestic pet which is frequently kept at home in Turkey. Expand
Airborne Pollen Concentrations and the Incidence of Allergic Asthma and Rhinoconjunctivitis in Northern Italy from 1992 to 2003
Significant correlations between the increasing incidence in asthma and allergy to mites, pets and birch pollen are shown and the decrease in the total pollen count and concentration peaks of grass pollen was correlated to the decreasing trend of rhinoconjunctivitis. Expand
Skin prick test reactivity in allergic rhinitis patients to airborne pollens
The significance of determining the types and concentrations of pollen with a view to comparing changes in highly concentrated allergens is emphasized, and the presence of allergic reactions to pollen allergens in the patients observed is confirmed. Expand
Skin prick test reactivity to common aeroallergens among allergic rhinitis patients in Iran.
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
Consensus statement * on the treatment of allergic rhinitis
Current guidelines emphasize the importance of an accurate diagnosis of patients presenting with rhinitis symptoms and the morbidity of SAR obviously depends on the geographic region, the pollen season of the plants, and the local climate. Expand
Skin prick test reactivity to common aeroallergens and ARIA classification of allergic rhinitis in patients of Central Greece
Evidence is provided of a typical Mediterranean allergic profile of patients of Central Greece with significant regional variability and both classifications had approximately equal diagnostic value in this study. Expand
Pollen‐related allergy in Europe *
Clinical and aerobiologic studies show that the pollen map of Europe is changing also as a result of cultural factors and greater international travel, and studies on allergen‐carrying paucimicronic or submicronic airborne particles, which penetrate deep into the lung, are having a relevant impact on understanding of pollinosis and its distribution throughout Europe.

The skin prick test results of 977 patients suffering from chronic rhinitis in Hong Kong.
Identifiable aeroallergens could be detected in 67% chronic rhinitis patients by skin prick test alone and house dust mites was the most prevalent causative allergen. Expand
Skin test reactivity to natural and recombinant Blomia and Dermatophagoides spp. allergens among mite allergic patients in the UK
This study investigates reactivity to B. tropicalis in patients known to be sensitized to D.’pteronyssinus and assess allergenic activity and cross‐reactivity of recombinant (r) Group 5 allergens amongst these patients, who live in the UK and who are not exposed to the mite Blomia tropicalis in their homes.
