Pollens from diverse grass plants are main contributors to seasonal inhalant allergies worldwide. Grass group 1 and 5 allergens represent highly cross-reactive and potent major allergens, group 5 present only in temperate climate grasses (Pooideae). Depending on climate and region, global sensitization rates to grass pollen vary between 1% to 30% of the general population,. Strong evidence supports specific immunotherapy with grass pollen extracts.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
