Use components to identify patients for appropriate olive pollen SIT

Most olive pollen allergic patients are poly-sensitized to several tree, weed or grass pollen allergens and the case history does not always clearly suggest which pollens are causing the symptoms.

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

ImmunoCAP Components will help you:

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