GRASS POLLEN ALLERGY


Key Allergens

There are multiple species of grasses described on the World Health Organization Allergen Database.

The main allergen involved in grass allergy is the beta expansin protein. These are cell wall proteins which affect the airways.

Grass pollen occurs in the UK between April and September, peaking in June. This varies in different countries. It is considered to have high allergenicity.

Associated Syndromes

An allergy to grass pollen is strongly associated with seasonal allergic rhinitis (hayfever).

A grass pollen allergy is also linked to asthma, rhinoconjunctivitis and atopic dermatitis.

Cross Reactivity

Other plants containing beta expansin proteins are barley, rye, maize and rice.
