What’s in the Air
Airborne Bioparticles and their Impact on Hay Fever Sufferers

By Richard W. Weber, M.D., UCHSC, Denver

The types of airborne exposures with which hay fever sufferers may come in contact, and the mechanism of reaction will be discussed. Examples of important aeroallergen sources will be given, their botanical relationships described, and the time of year exposures can be expected. The impact of clinical change on aeroallergens will be addressed.
Professor Richard Weber teaches at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center and practices Allergy & Immunology and Internal Medicine in the National Jewish Medical and Research Center in Denver.
