    • Similarly, another study of 1-3-year-old children with AR in Beijing reported that the most common inhaled sensitizing aeroallergens in these children were mixed fungal (50.0%), followed by dust mite (21.0%) and mugwort (12.5%).65 However, 2 studies conducted respectively in Changsha66 and Wuhan,38 cities in central China, reported that the most common sensitizing allergens in children with AR were house dust mites, thus presenting an allergen spectrum in accordance with that of adults. Similarly, a study by Han and colleagues36 in 9-10-year-old AR children in Shihezi, Xinjiang province in Northwest China, reported mugwort and house dust mite allergens to be the most common sensitizing agents for AR.
    [Show abstract] [Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: Allergic rhinitis (AR) is a serious systemic allergic disease, which together with comorbid asthma causes major illness and disability worldwide. Recent epidemiological studies have revealed wide variations in the increasing prevalence of AR and allergies globally, including in China. Despite a markedly higher population than western countries, and a landmass close to Europe in area, little epidemiological data is available on AR in China. Thus, the present study reviewed the prevalence, comorbid allergic diseases, trends and pattern of sensitizing allergens in adults and children suffering from AR in China. Available data indicated that despite variations in the prevalence of AR in different regions of the country, the prevalence of AR has increased in both adults and children over the last 2 decades. Similarly, there has been an increase in a "western"-type lifestyle, industrialization and air pollution over this period, which may have contributed to the increased prevalence of AR observed in China.
