Pollen allergy, also known as seasonal allergic rhinitis or hay fever, is one of the most prevalent allergies worldwide and one of the leading causes of acute asthma attacks. This exaggerated defense reaction of the body is triggered by exposure to the tiny pollen of flowers, trees, grass and weeds, where inhalation or external contact with the pollen allergen are the most common forms of exposure.

Hay fever is a hypersensitivity reaction of the immune system to pollen from trees, shrubs, grasses, and cereals. When the pollen flies in the wind, it spreads quickly, gets on the skin and into the respiratory tract. Immunoglobulin E (IgE) type antibodies mediate allergic reactions.
If pollen gets onto the mucous membranes of the eyes or nose, an immune reaction is triggered. The following symptoms can occur with a pollen allergy: Redness, tearing and itching of the eyes, sneezing, runny nose, skin reactions, scratching in the throat, and allergic asthma.
There are various methods for diagnosing a pollen allergy. Anamnesis and the medical history can provide considerable information about a possible allergy risk. In addition to a detailed patients interview, special allergy tests are necessary for an exact diagnosis. Skin tests can be used to observe any reactions on the skin that indicate the presence of an allergy. Additional allergy testing options, such as blood tests, are also part of allergy diagnostics.
Affected individuals are treated according to the severity of the pollen allergy. The therapy consists of three main pillars: Allergen avoidance, therapy of the cause, and treatment of the symptoms. Various medications are used in the treatment of a pollen allergy - from the classic antihistamine drugs to cortisone. In hyposensitization, the body is trained in its tolerance so that it no longer excessively fights allergy causes that are actually harmless. If only a mild form of pollen allergy is present, local treatment of the symptoms is often sufficient, e.g. by applying nasal drops.
Central BioHub enables the procurement of serum samples isolated from allergy patients perfectly suited for in-vitro biomedical research. They are measured for sIgE for different pollen allergens and stored at <-18 °C at our partners biobanks. The positive tests are categorized into four groups, the so-called RAST classes, of which class 1 represents the lowest and class 4 has the highest content of specific IgE.
