Major inhalant allergens in Mauritius


, : Major inhalant allergens in Mauritius. Annals of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology 74(6): 489-490

The pattern of total serum IgE titres among a group of patients suffering from asthma in Mauritius was determined. Twenty-five asthmatic patients and 10 controls who met the criteria for the study were registered. A comprehensive clinical evaluation was followed by allergy skin testing (prick test) to common aeroallergens. Serum total IgE levels were measured in all 35 participants. Of 22 patients studied, 22 had significant levels of IgE when tested to airborne allergens.
