An Example of Application Pollen Allergen Analysis

Inhalative allergies are elicited predominantly by pollen of various plant species. A large number of grass, weed, and tree species shed their pollen in high concentrations during the pollen season, leading to allergic symptoms such as hay fever, rhinitis, and even bronchial asthma 27 . The last two decades were marked by large advances in the characterization of pollen-derived allergenic proteins.

Appalachian rock pink

Ecology As an important range plant, Timothy grass has been introduced over much of temperate North America, where it has often escaped cultivation and become established in fields, roadsides, and other open habitats. A prolific seed producer, it rapidly colonizes disturbed areas. Once established, Timothy grass stores carbohydrates and other products of photosynthesis in the base of swollen stems and in corms. These nutrient reserves are important to winter survival, to the initiation of early spring growth, and in the production of replacement tillers (shoots) following defoliation by grazers. Grasses, like other wind-pollinated plants, produce enormous amounts of pollen as a mechanism to facilitate successful pollination. A meadow dominated by Timothy grass, for example, can disperse over 1 billion pollen grains in just 2 weeks. Unfortunately, pollen produced by this grass is a common cause of hay fever. No matter how long a naturalized plant such as Timothy grass persists in an...

Irritants and Allergens

Many people also experience individual allergies to plants and mushrooms that are edible to the general population. Allergies to specific food plants, such as peanuts, lentils, or wheat, can be very serious. In some cases, these otherwise edible species are deadly poisonous allergens for those affected. Plant allergies, including hay fever, can develop at any age and may be alleviated by a program of immunization.

Predominant Weed Pollen Include

Davies and Smith first reported forecasting the start and severity of the hay fever season. Spieksma in the Netherlands conducted radio broadcasting of the expected influence of the weather on the subjective complaints of hay fever sufferers from 1980. By using several years' data collected from Stockholm, Sweden, aerobiologists have evaluated some models, to predict the starting and intensity of pollen seasons. Driessen et al. (1989) studied prediction of the start of the grass pollen season for the western part of Netherlands. Freguelli et al. (1991c) studied the influence of air temperature on the starting dates of pollen season of Alnus and Populus. Spieksma (1988) in the Netherlands conducted retrospective and predictive system of information on pollen concentrations in relation to hay fever. Spieksma et al. (1989) studied biometeorological and pollen flight forecast. Buch (1986) described pollen and mould spore counting methodologies for use in pollen forecasting in Denmark. The...

Spirulina Aphanizomenon and Chlorella sp

Clinical studies suggest that Spirulina is effective in melanosis and keratosis due to chronic arsenic posioning. It improves hemoglobin levels in malnourshied children and is effective in allergenic rhinitis or hay fever. A clinical trial from India, suggested a possible role of Spirulina fusiformis in

Fred Campbell Meier 18931938

Meier compiled a vertical profile of fungal spores, ranging in height from 150 m to 11,000 m over Eastern United States. On the basis of his outstanding research work in a new direction, he was able to convince the National Research Council that it is worth extending this work even for other particles in air, such, as pollen known for causing hay fever. This also indicated his concern for human welfare. The classical work of Charles H. Blackley entitled 'Experimental researches on the causes and nature of Catarrhus Aestivus' published in 1873, is always quoted by aerobiologists as one of the most generally accepted being the first text giving evidence of airborne pollen as the cause of hay fever. Blackley's most cited experiment dealt with the collection of airborne particles using kites.

Experiments with Chemicals and Odours

Blackley tried many volatile substances that which produced head symptoms however, in no instances were there any symptoms in the least degree resembled those of Hay fever. Odours given by different flowers had sometimes a marked effect, but as for the preceding substances there were none of the symptoms of hay fever. Charles Blackley concluded that I have reason to believe that Penicillium generates symptoms not unlike those of hay fever in some respects, but differing materially in others, being much more like those of ordinary influenza.

Experiments with Dust and Pollen

Blackley was scientifically very observant. Once he reported on an attack caused by the dust cloud produced by a moving carriage on the road. Examination of the dust under the microscope revealed the presence of grass pollen grains. He concluded that various channels by which a cause may reach a patient, in out of way places and at out of way times. On account of his ever alert and inquisitive mind, Blackley posed himself some questions Can pollen produce the symptoms of hay fever Does this property belong to all pollen He also wondered if this condition is found in dried as well as in fresh pollen urticaria Blackley concluded that the action of the different pollen grains was not related to their size, shape, roughness or to the poisonous character of the family. Later he hypothesized on the possible involvement of alkaloid in hay fever.

Professor John Malcolm Hirst D Sc F R S 19211997

Professor Hirst published his description of the Hirst trap in 1952 and immediately requests came to Rothamsted from other researchers to have duplicates made. It was decided to pass the design to an engineering firm and so production was begun by Casella Limited, later continued by Burkard Limited, when the seven-day trap was introduced. Within a few months Hirst traps were used by hospitals, studying hay fever and other allergic responses.

Common ragweed

Ecology Ragweed is a disturbance-dependent species that emerges from dormant seeds in the soil. Famous for its power to induce allergic responses, ragweed pollen is the primary cause of late summer-fall hay fever. Because the flowers are pollinated by wind, huge amounts of pollen are needed to ensure successful pollination and seed set (a single plant can produce several million pollen grains). The surface of pollen grains contains proteins that cause sneezing, watery eyes, and breathing difficulties for people sensitive to ragweed pollen. Unfortunately, there is little relief in sight for hay fever sufferers as widespread disturbance continually creates habitat for ragweed moreover, increasing atmospheric CO2 levels associated with global climate change are causing increased pollen production in ragweed. Because ragweed grows best in open areas with full sun, plants grow vigorously the first year after disturbance, but later only stunted plants with relatively few flowers (and pollen...

Tall goldenrod

Ecology It's not unusual to find multiple species of goldenrod within the same field or roadside area. Blooming in late summer or fall, goldenrods often turn drab openings into fields of gold. Like many goldenrods, tall goldenrod spreads vegetatively from underground stems (rhizomes), with some clones consisting of more than 20 connected shoots. The tall stems (up to 6 ft.) emerge from winter-dormant rhizomes in late spring and die back in late fall. A long growing season means that individuals must tolerate a wide range of climatic conditions, including heat, drought, and cold. People sometimes associate goldenrods with runny noses, itchy eyes, and sneezing, but goldenrods are not the culprit. Goldenrods are insect-pollinated, and their pollen grains are too large and sticky to be carried by wind. Instead, the primary cause of late summer or fall hay fever is ragweed (Ambrosia), with its abundant, small, nonsticky, wind-borne pollen.

Allergy

The term 'allergy' was coined in 1906 by Dr. Clemens Freiherr von Pirquet, an Austrian physician, to describe any abnormal reaction of the immune system. The immune system is intended to protect the body against the noxious invaders. But in allergy, immunity has gone awry, and the system reacts to substances that are ordinarily harmless. By far the most familiar allergic reactions are respiratory - sneezing, runny nose and watery eyes caused by inhaled allergens from growing weeds, trees and grasses or moulds, house dusts, mites and animal danders. These symptoms are commonly referred as 'hay fever'. However, hay fever is a misnomer, since it is not necessarily caused by hay and a rise in body temperature is not one of its symptoms. Hay fever is most commonly recognized as an allergic problem. Other allergic manifestations are skin eruptions from food ingestion for example hives from strawberries and eczema from chocolate, and anaphylactic shock from nuts are also commonly recognized....

Painted buckeye

Ecology In late winter, male catkins hang like long tassels, releasing a little pollen at a time into cup-like sections of the flower before the pollen is picked up and dispersed into the wind. A tiny fraction of this pollen is caught by small, reddish, hair-like structures (stigmas) that project from young female catkins. The abundantly produced pollen helps ensure pollination success but contributes to hay fever. Alders spread vegetatively via underground stems and by layering, sometimes forming dense thickets. Alder roots, in association with certain bacteria, absorb atmospheric nitrogen and convert it into a form the plant can use. The leaves of alder are especially rich in nitrogen, and with fall leaf drop, substantial amounts of nitrogen are released into the soil, which can be used by neighboring plants. Based on fossil pollen, research shows alders have been in North America for at least 65 million years.

Deleterious Effects

A 7-year-old boy had no personal or family history of contact dermatitis, eczema, asthma or hay fever. When he used the leaf gel of Kidachi aloe, because of a scaly eruption, he had an itchy, erythematous, buroring, papular and edematous eruption around the mouth. A patch test with the fresh leaf gel was positive after 48 hours. Six control subjects were all negative. He made a rapid recovery following the use of topical cortico-steroid. A mechanical irritation caused by crystals (calcium oxalate) was speculated to be the cause (Nakamura and Kotajima, 1984).
