Patients Treated with Alt a 1 Immunotherapy.

4% of the patients recognized Alt a 1. The percentage of recognition for Alt
a 3, Alt a 4, and/or Alt a 6, Alt a 7, Alt a 8, Alt a 10 and/or Alt a 15 was
6%, 21.9%, 12.5%, 12.5%, and 12.5% respectively. Of the 64 patients, 45 (70.3%)
only recognized Alt a 1 among the allergens present in the A. alternata extract.
Immunotherapy with Alt a 1 desensitizes treated patients, reducing their symptoms
and medication consumption through the elimination of Alt a 1 sensitization,
which is no longer present in the immunoblotting of some patients. There may be
gender differences in the pattern of sensitization to A. alternata allergens,
among others.
