Allergen, Individual - Grass Pollen Cultivated Ryegrass

Cultivated Ryegrass, or Lolium, is a genus of grass species that are often used in agriculture, for lawns, and as ground cover. Cultivated Ryegrass is known for its rapid growth and ability to thrive in various soil types. However, it is also a significant source of pollen which can be allergenic for some individuals. Pollen from ryegrass can trigger allergic reactions in susceptible individuals, particularly in the spring and early summer when the grass is in bloom.

The Allergen, Individual - Grass Pollen Cultivated Ryegrass test is designed to determine whether an individual has an allergy to the pollen of Cultivated Ryegrass. This is achieved by detecting specific Immunoglobulin E (IgE) antibodies in the blood. The presence of these antibodies indicates that the person’s immune system is reacting to substances in the environment that are normally harmless, such as the pollen from Cultivated Ryegrass.
