Sensitivity to mugwort pollen allergens (Artemisia vulgaris)


Sensitivity to mugwort pollen allergens (Artemisia vulgaris)



Polski Tygodnik Lekarski 45(42-44): 861-863



ISSN/ISBN: 0032-3756

PMID: 2098733

The author has found that 42% of patients with pollinosis had positive skin reactions with mugwort (Artemisia vulgaris) pollen allergens. The majority of tested patients (139 out of 187) were also allergic to grass pollens. However, hypersensitivity to mugwort pollen allergens was isolated and did not accompany grass pollen allergy. The symptoms of pollinosis appeared in this group later than in patients sensitive to grass pollen allergens only (over 21 years of age in 71%). Bronchial asthma was diagnosed in 40% of these patients and allergic skin reactions in 25%. Sensitivity to mugwort pollen allergens was accompanied by the sensitivity to pollen allergens of Graminae family of plants in 80% of cases. The author suggests that sensitivity to mugwort pollen allergens is the second most frequent cause of the pollinosis and is diagnosed too rarely. Failures of desensitization in patients sensitive to pollen allergens of Graminae family of plants may often result from coexisting sensitivity to mugwort pollen allergens as this sensitivity produces not only season but perennial clinical symptoms in nearly 50% of patients. The author discusses also botanical relations and cross-reactions in allergy to mugwort and ragweed pollen allergens.
