LP16974-5   Ficus sp
As a relevant indoor allergen, Ficus benjamina ranks third after mites and pets and before molds in a German clinic.

Any workplace where green plants like ficus are handled. Naturally growing ficus plants in tropical areas have not been reported to cause allergy. Ficus benjamina (Fb), also known as Java willow, Ceylon willow and Bali fig tree, is a tropical non-flowering plant used ornamentally in homes and public places such as offices and hospitals. The allergens are originally located in the sap of the plant, but are present in dust collected from leaf surfaces and also in house dust on the floor, where the allergens may persist over a period of several months after removal of the plant). The main route for sensitization is probably by inhalation of airborne dust emanating from the leaves of the plant.

Allergy to Fb was first observed in an occupational setting, where two plant leasing workers were sensitized and developed Fb-linked rhinitis and asthma. In a subsequent study in four plant-leasing firms, it was found that 27% of the workers had IgE antibodies to Fb. The sensitization occurred in atopic individuals as well as in non-atopic.
