Abstract

One hundred and sixty‐five individuals with ragweed rhinitis and asthma were studied. The associations between the HLA system and: Ra3 skin‐test response, Ra3 RAST, Ra3/antigen E skin‐test reactivity ratio, Ra5 skin‐test response, Ra5 RAST, Ra5/antigen E skin‐test reactivity ratio, serum IgE levels, antigen E skin‐test response, and antigen E RAST were studied. In addition, the influence of the serum IgE levels of these immune parameters were evaluated. No highly significant associations were noted.
