Several examples of pollen morphology are shown in Fig. 1. Plant Pollens • Pollens responsible for seasonal allergies are light and transported by wind. They emanate from plants with small, nondescrite flowers. • The “pollen season” varies by type of plant and geographic location but generally follows the order of trees, then grasses, then weeds. • Airborne concentrations of pollen vary by weather conditions, with warm, dry, breezy conditions being favored for pollen dispersal. 42 Sicherer and Eggleston Fig.
Class 0 indicated undetectable IgE, whereas classes 1–4 or 6 represented increasing quantities of IgE. Some laboratories also report a class 0/1, or indeterminate class. Although physicians often interpret this indeterminate class as a very weak positive, the correct interpretation is that samples in this class have an equal probability of being positive or negative and should therefore not be considered positive. Some laboratories report results using what is known as “modified” RAST scoring. The modified scoring system originally involved a number of technical details, but the net effect of the scoring system was to lower the point at which a result was considered positive.
