  1. Pollen-related allergy in Europe.

    Article - En anglais

    The increasing mobility of Europeans for business and leisure has led to a need for reliable information about exposure to seasonal airborne allergens during travel abroad.

    Over the last 10 years or so, aeropalynologic and allergologic studies have progressed to meet this need, and extensive international networks now provide regular pollen and hay-fever forecasts.

    Europe is a geographically complex continent with a widely diverse climate and a wide spectrum of vegetation.

    Consequently, pollen calendars differ from one area to another ; however, on the whole, pollination starts in spring and ends in autumn.

    Grass pollen is by far the most frequent cause of pollinosis in Europe.

    In northern Europe, pollen from species of the family Betulaceae is a major cause of the disorder.

    In contrast, the mild winters and dry summers of Mediterranean areas favor the production of pollen types that are rarely found in central and northern areas of the continent (e.g., the genera Parietaria, Olea, and Cupressus).

    Clinical and aerobiologic studies show that the pollen map of Europe is changing also as a result of cultural factors (e.g., importation of plants for urban parklands) and greater international travel (e.g., the expansion of the ragweed genus Ambrosia in France, northern Italy, Austria, and Hungary).
