[Analyzing of the inhaled allergens profiles of 890 allergic rhinitis patients].
ABSTRACT To investigate the inhaled allergens spectrum of 890 allergic rhinitis patients in Shanghai, and to provide basic epidemiologic information for the prevention and treatment of allergic rhinitis.
Thirteen allergens skin prick test results of 890 allergic rhinitis patients recruited were retrospectively analyzed.
The main common inhaled allergens in allergic rhinitis patients in Shanghai were house dust mite (91.24%), dermatophagoides farinae (86.58%), tropical mite (51.98%), dog hair (15.96%). Moreover, the positive frequency was decreased with age increasing, and gender group had no obvious difference.
House dust mite and dermatophagoides farinae were the main allergens of allergic rhinitis patients in Shanghai. Skin prick test is helpful for the discovery of the allergens so as to provide important basis of immunotherapy.
