Molecular diagnosis of fruit and vegetable allergy


Ballmer-Weber, B K; Hoffmann-Sommergruber, K (2011). Molecular diagnosis of fruit and vegetable allergy. Current Opinion in Allergy and Clinical Immunology, 11(3):229-235.

Abstract

Food and vegetable allergy can be acquired both via a direct sensitization over the gastrointestinal tract and via a primary sensitization to pollen or latex. The diagnosis of fruit and vegetable allergy in birch pollen-sensitized patients should not be excluded on a negative IgE testing to extracts. Bet v 1-related allergens are often under-represented in extracts. Few recombinant allergens derived from fruits and vegetables are nowadays commercially available and facilitate diagnosis of fruit and vegetable allergies.
