Allergen, Individual - Grass Pollen Bermuda Grass

Bermuda grass, scientifically known as Cynodon dactylon, is a widely used grass for lawns, golf courses, and sports fields. It is known for its hardiness and ability to grow in various types of soil. However, Bermuda grass is also known for producing pollen that can cause allergic reactions in some individuals. The Allergen, Individual - Grass Pollen Bermuda Grass test is designed to diagnose an allergy to Bermuda grass pollen by detecting the presence of Immunoglobulin E (IgE) antibodies in the blood.

Pollen is a powdery substance that is produced by various plants, including grasses like Bermuda grass, as part of their reproductive process. While pollen is usually harmless, in some individuals, the immune system mistakenly identifies it as a threat and produces IgE antibodies to fight against it. This reaction leads to the release of chemicals that cause allergy symptoms.
