Part Description

LP13946-6   Alternaria alternata
A. alternate is a mold, a member of the imperfect fungi family, and one of the main allergens affecting children. Multiple allergens have been identified in A. alternata and the presence of specific allergens is highly dependent on growth conditions. Sensitivity to Alternaria is increasingly recognized as a risk factor for the development, persistence, and exacerbation of asthma.

In temperate climates, airborne Alternaria spores are found from May to November, peaking in late summer and autumn. The highest concentrations of spores are in grain-growing areas, such as the Midwest of the United States. A. alternata commonly grows on vegetation, soils, corn silage, rotten wood, compost, and bird nests, as well as on food and textiles. Copyright Copyright © 2006 Phadia AB. Source: ImmunoCap

Change Reason
The Property has been changed from ACnc to Threshold to reflect the new model for ordinal terms where results are based on a cut-off value.; The PrThr property is used for LOINC terms whose results are reported using an ordered categorical scale, regardless of whether or not an internal threshold was used to make that determination. This change was approved by the Laboratory LOINC Committee in June 2016.
Order vs. Observation
Both
