BACKGROUND Allergenic crossreactivity of pollen and foods due to the antigeneic similarity of oligopeptides is a well established clinical phenomenon. OBJECTIVE To determine the immunopathological relevance of antigen presentation, we analysed the HLA class-II genotype of patients with either pollen allergy or pollen associated food allergy. METHODS One… CONTINUE READING
