Use components to identify patients for appropriate olive pollen SIT

Most olive pollen-allergic patients are polysensitized to several tree, weed or grass pollen allergens, and case histories do not always suggest clearly which pollens are causing the symptoms.

Moreover, a positive olive pollen extract test may be a result of cross-reactivity and not of genuine olive pollen extract sensitization.

ImmunoCAP Components will help you:

  • Resolve multiple positivity to pollen tests:
  • Identify primary sensitizations among different pollens
  • Facilitate the identification of patients and the selection of appropriate extracts for SIT
