The Common Respiratory Allergy Panel — Expanded measures immunoglobulin E (IgE) antibodies produced in the blood in response to certain common tree pollen, weed, grass, and common indoor allergens. This panel measures immune responses to weed and grasses (Bermuda grass, Timothy grass, Johnson grass, common ragweed, tough pigweed, sheep sorrel weed), tree pollen (maple, birch, mountain cedar, oak, elm, walnut, cottonwood, white ash, hickory/pecan, white mulberry), and indoor allergens (cat dander, dog dander, mouse urine, Cladosporium herbarum mold, Aspergillus fumigatus fungus, Alternaria alternata mold, cockroach, and dust mites Dermatophagoides pteronyssinus (American), and Dermatophagoides farinae (European).
This test reports the presence of lgE(s) antibodies to tree pollen allergens, weed and grass allergens, and indoor allergens, but the result by itself cannot confirm the diagnosis of the allergy. It is important to follow up with your healthcare provider. They will review your results along with your medical history, signs and symptoms, medications, and any other test results. Only a healthcare provider can diagnose an allergy and prescribe medication, if needed.
