Thus there is an increasing demand for developing a BALB/c mice model to empathize the allergic properties of potato protein and its fractions.

AbstractLarge spatial differences in the distribution of three allergologically relevant pollen types for Central Europe —birch, grass, and mugwort—are revealed within a large metropolitan area—Berlin, Germany. The purpose of the study is an examination of the hypothesis that these different pollen exposure conditions can cause different degrees of pollen-induced symptoms within the city. Pollen data from 14 gra vimetric traps and one volumetric trap in Berlin and anonymously reported pollen-induced symptom data from the online-based self-documentation tool “Patient’s Hayfever Diary” (PH...
