Japanese cedar pollinosis is one of the most prevalent allergies in Japan. Reducing the allergen content of pollen plays a major role in the alleviation of allergy symptoms. Aptamers, oligonucleotides with an affinity for specific molecules, have great potential for reducing allergic activity. In this study, we report that the anti-Cry j 2 aptamers, CJ2-04… CONTINUE READING
