Abstract

Allergic rhinitis (AR) is characterized by Th2 polarized immune response. Consequently, allergic patients have a defect in IFN-γ production. So far, however, all the experimental studies have investigated only the IFN-γ production induced by the causal allergen. The aim of this study is to investigate whether there is a difference in the in vitro IFN-γ production, using different allergens as stimuli, in patients presenting with rhinitis due to pollen allergy. Forty-one AR patients with pollen allergy were enrolled. IFN-γ-specific producing cells were stimulated with PHA, causal pollen, and House Dust Mite (HDM). IFN-γ production was assessed by cytokine ELISPOT. IFN-γ production of peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) stimulated by specific pollen was significantly lower than IFN-γ production of PBMC stimulated by HDM (p
