Alternate is a mold, a member of the imperfect fungi family, and one of the main allergens affecting children. Multiple allergens have been identified in A. alternata and the presence of specific allergens is highly dependent on growth conditions. Sensitivity to Alternaria is increasingly recognized as a risk factor for the development, persistence, and exacerbation of asthma. In temperate climates, airborne Alternaria spores are found from May to November, peaking in late summer and autumn. The highest concentrations of spores are in grain-growing areas, such as the Midwest of the United States. A. alternata commonly grows on vegetation, soils, corn silage, rotten wood, compost, and bird nests, as well as on food and textiles. The leukocyte histamine release test (LHR, LHRT) measures the amount of histamine released in-vitro in the presence of an allergen. Allergen extracts in varying concentrations are added to isolated leukocytes from peripheral blood. If the patient is hypersensitive to the specific antigen, the leukocytes will release the histamine in-vitro. The amount of histamine released will depend on the sensibility to the allergen.
