LP14956-4   Papain
An enzyme, which may result in allergy symptoms in sensitised individuals.

Papain is a proteolytic enzyme found mainly in the unripe fruit of the Papaya tree. It is made from the latex of the full grown but unripe Papaya fruit; it is also present in the leaves and trunk, and is found even during various stages of ripening after incision of the unripe fruit.

Papain can induce IgE allergy reactions through different routes: respiratory, contact, or digestive. The most common sensitisation route is inhalation. The rate of sensitisation is high. Occupational allergy to Papain in exposed workers was described some years ago; workers presented with bronchial asthma, rhinitis or both. In most of the cases, specific IgE was positive. Contact with Papain may also result in anaphylaxis. Copyright Copyright © 2006 Phadia AB. Source: ImmunoCap, ImmunoCap
