Comparison of serum beta-2-microglobulin levels in patients with symptoms of allergic rhinitis and elevated modified RAST scores vs. a control population. Academic Article uri icon


  • Forty-four subjects, having clinical histories consistent with allergic rhinitis with modified RAST score(s) of two or more for at least one of five locally prevalent aeroantigens, were compared with 48 control subjects with modified RAST scores of zero for all given aeroallergens. There was no significant difference between these two groups in mean levels of serum beta-2-microglobulin (Student's t, p greater than 0.05).
