Purpose To detect the serum IgE to carbohydrate cross-reactive determinants(CCD) and plant-related allergens sIgE, and analyse their correlation evaluating the characteristic of cross reaction, occuring in both CCD and plant-related allergens ,for providing some reference value to the diagnosis of plant-related allergens sensitization.Method We collected 94 patients having a history of plant-related allergen sensitization to detect 21 allergens, including CCD, peanut (f13), soybean (f14), ragweed (w1), mugwort (w6), trees-mixed (poplar/willow/elm, ts4), humulus(u80), mites-mixed:(house dust mites/flour mites, ds1), house dust (h1), cockroach (i6), dog epithelium (e2), cat hair (e1), moulds-mixed (penicillium/aspergillus/cladosporium/alternaria, ms1), egg white (f1), milk (f2) and crab (f23), shrimp (f24), fished-mixed 1(cod/lobster/scallops,)(fs33), beef(f27), lamb (f88), fished-mixed 2(salmon/bass/carp, fs34) in the western blot, and to analyse the correlation CCD and plant-related allergens.Result Among the 94 patients, the majority of allergens-positive was t20,accounting for 60.6%, followed by f14 (59.6%), f13 (58.5%), ds1(57.4%) and CCD (56.4%);The prevalence of plant-related allergens (t20, w1, f14, f13, w6 and u80) in CCD-positive patients were significantly higher than those in CCD-negative patients (all P< 0.01); The prevalence of CCD in plant-related positive patients was significantly higher than that in plant-related negatived patients (all P< 0.01), and the CCD class-positive focused on class 3 to 4 in plant-related positive patients; 23% of the patients showed co-sensitization to all planted-related allergens ,and the prevalence of CCD increased with increasing co-sensitization cases; The correlation between t20 and w1 was the strongest(r = 0.77), followed by f13 and f14 (r = 0.56,), w6 and t20 (r = 0.55);there was different correlation among CCD and all plant-related allergens (r=0.39-0.84, all P<0.01), among which, the correlation of CCD with w1was the strongest(r=0.84); followed by correlation of CCD with t20(r=0.72).Conclusion Our study showed that the prevalence of plant-related allergens increased in CCD-positive patients and vice versa, Meanwhile, There was correlation, in varying degrees, among all plant-related allergens and CCD.
