An apple allergy, which is related to birch pollen, is a very common phenomenon associated with birch pollen allergy – around 70% of those with a birch pollen allergy are also allergic to apples. In those affected, eating apples leads to swelling and rashes or itching in the mouth and gullet, as well as in the ear area, and even to blistering. Now researchers have shown in a Phase II trial that the apple allergen “Mal d 1” significantly reduces the symptoms of apple allergy and is therefore an effective and safe treatment option.
