RATIONALE: Pollinosis, which occurs most commonly as allergic rhinitis, is an inflammation of the nasal membranes that is characterized by sneezing, nasal congestion, nasal itching, and rhinorrhea, in any combination.

METHODS: We study aimed to establish specific IgE specificity in the 89 patients with pollinosis in Western Georgia (among them 44 males and 45 females) of different ages:I step – To detect allergenization degree, total serum IgE levels, specific IgE .II step - Monitoring of aeropollutants concentration was conducted by using aeropolinometer “Burkard Trap”.

RESULTS: 89 involved patients into two study groups: I – the group contained 59 patients diagnosed with pollinosis while the II group comprised 30 patients suffering from other allergic deseases (atopic dermatitis, bronchial asthma).In the patients with pollinosis of I study group, a specific positivity (Wx2) of specific IgE to the weeds (Wx2) – ambrosia, plantain, clasp/tarragon, atriplex –in 47 (68%) on average; tree dust (Tx9) - alder, lactarius piperatus, nuts, oak, willow - 21 (30%) on average; and cereals (Gx1) - lolium temulentum, timoti grass, poa - 19 (28%) on average was revealed . The highest percentage comes on plant allergens-aeropollutants, which is proved by appropriate specific IgE positivity.

CONCLUSIONS: The patients suffering from pollinois were supplied with the data of aeropolinometer “Burkard Trap”, developed by our clinic permanently updating calendar for distribution of aeroallergens in Imereti region, which reflects the concentration of blossoming plant-trees and atmospheric aeroallergens in the air at a given period of time.The publication was prepared with the support of the "RUDN University Program 5-100"
