BACKGROUND Little is known about differences in IgE reactivity patterns to individual allergens in random populations. We studied the IgE reactivity profile to individual recombinant (r) and native (n) allergens in sera from subjects sensitized to timothy and/or birch pollen living in Finnish and Russian Karelia. METHODS Sera from IgE-sensitized adults were obtained from an epidemiological study on a random sample of 1,177 subjects. The IgE reactivity to pollen extracts and eight timothy… CONTINUE READING
