Abstract

Aeroallergens play an important role in developing allergic diseases. The aim of this study was to determine the outdoor and indoor sensitization using a specific regional panel of aeroallergens in allergic patients. All patients with allergic symptoms referred to Immunology, Asthma and Allergy Research Institute (IAARI) in Tehran, Iran from December 2010 to July 2013 entered this cross sectional study. We evaluated serum samples for specific IgE against 20 selected aeroallergens provided by a specific panel (RIDA Allergy Screen test, IAARI panel). A p value less than 0.05 was considered as significant. The patients (n=602) were 49.8 male and 50.2 female. The median age was 9 years. Positive specific IgE at least to one allergen was 53.2. The percentages of patients with only outdoor or indoor sensitization were 37.5 and 19.7, respectively. Moreover, 42.8 showed sensitization to both indoor and outdoor aeroallergens. The most common outdoor aeroallergens in decreasing order were plane tree (32.8), Bermuda grass (32.2), timothy grass (30.6), saltwort (28.4). The percentage of specific IgE to indoor allergens including mold and mite were 23.8 and 22.2, respectively. There was a statistically significant relationship between specific IgE to timothy grass and mold allergens between two genders (p=0.04 and p=0.02, respectively). The results of this study shows that outdoor aeroallergens can be considered as the most common causes of allergic symptoms in our allergic patients.
