Abstract

Asymptomatic aeroallergen sensitisation affects approximately 10% of Western adolescents and is an established risk factor for the development of respiratory allergy. The reported incidence is 2-20% annually. Previous studies are based on out-seasonal symptom recollection or selected populations, conferring bias towards higher incidence rates.
