Description

Inhalant Allergen Panel Blood Test

Vibrant America Inhalant Allergy test is a simple blood test which can diagnose inhalants causing allergies. This test evaluates serum specific IgE antibody levels to common environmental inhalants. This is an ideal allergy test for patients with suspected environmental and/or seasonal allergies.

The test panel includes 46 of the most common allergens, including different types of mites, molds, animal dander, weeds, grasses, insects, trees, and shrubs.

The most common allergic diseases include: hay fever, asthma, conjunctivitis, hives, eczema, dermatitis, and sinusitis. Among these, hay fever, which is also known as allergic rhinitis, is one of the most common kinds of inhalant allergies. Allergic rhinitis appears in two different forms:

Seasonal: Symptoms occur in spring, summer and early fall. They are usually caused by allergic sensitivity to pollens from trees, grasses or weeds, or to airborne mold spores.

Perennial: Symptoms occur all year-round. Perennial allergic rhinitis is generally caused by sensitivity to house dust mites, animal dander, cockroaches, and/or mold spores.

Markers Measured

Inhalant Allergen Panel Blood Test markers measured:

Trees and Shrubs

Tree and shrub pollen can be found in most outdoor setting and be found indoors. Tree and shrub pollen allergies are seasonal in nature, people experience its symptoms only when the pollen grains to which they are allergic are in the air. Pollen counts tend to be highest early in the morning on warm, dry, breezy days and lowest during chilly, wet periods.

  • Acacia
  • American elm
  • American Sycamore
  • Ash mix
  • Australian Pine
  • Black oak
  • Black walnut
  • Box elder
  • Mountain cedar
  • Pecan
  • Red alder
  • Red mulberry
  • White birch
  • White oak

Insects

Cockroaches can be found in households, particularly dirty unmaintained homes. These insects may be the most common cause of year-round allergy. Cockroach’s waste and body are the cause of allergic reactions.

  • Cockroach

Grasses

Grass allergies can commonly be found with two classes of grass: northern and southern grasses. Northern grasses are normally found in cold climates. Southern grasses are normally found in warm climates.

  • Bahia Grass
  • Bermuda
  • Johnson Grass
  • Kentucky Blue/June
  • Perennial ryegrass
  • Redtop
  • Timothy

Weeds

Weed pollen allergies are commonly found outdoors during dry, hot, windy days when airborne particles are at their peak. Weed allergies are generally seasonal, normally from late summer to early fall. September is particularly having high levels of weed pollen abundance.

  • Mugwort
  • Nettle
  • Pigweed
  • Ragweed (Short)
  • Russian Thistle
  • Sheep sorrel

Animal Dander

Animal dander from cats and dogs can be found anywhere the animal has been present, however, animal dander typically is only problematic for allergies in enclosed spaces, such as indoors. Severe allergies to animal dander may be triggered by exposure to the dander outdoors, though. Animal dander can also be found on the clothing of people who own or work with animals. Dander is concentrated in saliva, as well, therefore being licked by an animal can transfer dander from animal to human. Animal dander can also accumulate in vacuum filters.

  • Cat Epithelia
  • Dog Epithelia

Mold

Mold can be commonly found both indoors and outdoors. Molds grow in warm, humid, damp buildings including homes and workplaces. Mold can also be found in air conditioning vents. Mold spores are present in household dust in most areas. In outdoor areas, molds commonly grow on shady, damp surfaces and decomposing matter.

  • Alternaria alternata
  • Aspergillus fumigatus
  • Candida albicans
  • Cladosporium herbarum
  • Epicoccum nigrum
  • Fusarium moniliforme

  • Phoma betae
  • Rhizopus stolonifer
  • Trichoderma harzianum

Mites

Mites are found in virtually every environment on Earth. Contact between humans and the majority of types of mites is rare, however a few are commonly found in human dwellings. The common house mite lives on furniture, bedding, and carpet inside homes. Some mites also live in food storage areas, feeding on crumbs and packaged food. House dust contains a high quantity of house mite bodies and their feces, which is what triggers allergic reactions.
